I want to download the BBC Sport app from Google Play but it tells me it is not available in my country. I live in England!!!! Is my sim card registered in England?

You need to change it in Google Play

If you change your country, you'll need to wait a year to change it again.

On your Android device, open the Google Play Store app .

At the top right, tap the profile icon.

Tap Settings General Account preferences. Country and profiles.

To change countries, tap the name of the one that you want to change to.

This is not O2 and we are all customers here similar to yourself and cannot answer account type queries.

Use of a VPN can also cause your device to think that you are in another country.
