You weren't! EE didn't buy IPs from Orange. Orange UK (nowt to do with any overseas Oranges) is a constituent part of EE & remains so today. Anyway they're all registered in UK. I've never had any issues watching iPlayer over EE BB.
Sorry, but you are just dreaming up remote eventualities that cannot be tested. I shall no further address them.
Do what everybody else does. Choose an ISP based on what they offer & join them. You won't know how it is until you use it.
