The good news is, with an app called a VPN you can watch 7 Plus without being blocked no matter where you are in the world.
So if you want to watch Home and Away, Border Patrol, The Chase and a whole lot more, read on to find out how you can and watch 7 Plus outside Australia.
How to watch 7 Plus outside Australia
If you visit the 7 Plus website outside of Australia you’re blocked from watching with a message that looks a little bit like this:
The reason you’re blocked is clear, you’re not in Australia.
7 Plus is intended to be watched only from within Australia and when you travel outside the website knows this and so blocks you from viewing.
To unblock 7 Plus outside Australia you need to get yourself an app called a VPN.
A VPN allows you to change your online location so you can make it appear as if you’re elsewhere. Follow the steps below that show you where to get a VPN and how to use it to watch 7 Plus outside Australia.
How to watch 7 Plus outside Australia:
- Visit the VPN provider ExpressVPN and sign-up. (There’s a 30-day money back guarantee so no need to worry)
- Download the correct app for your device from their Products section.
- Install and run the app and login when required.
- Choose Selected Location
- Then All Locations, Asia Pacific and finally Australia.
The ExpressVPN app will now do all the hard work for you and get you connected to Australia.
This should take less than 30 seconds and the app will let you know when it’s connected.
Once the app is connected all you need to do is visit the 7 Plus website again. Instead of seeing the block message from earlier you’ll now be able to watch both live and catch-up TV wherever you are in the world.
You can also use the 7Plus app to watch too.

In our tests we found ExpressVPN to be the best VPN provider for watching 7 Plus outside Australia.
However, as an internet savvy shopper, you probably don’t want to take our word 100% and want to shop around a little.

All three providers work exactly the same as ExpressVPN and the process is the same.
Just click on one of their names to visit their website and sign-up. Then download their app or software for your device. Next, connect to their Australian connection point.
Then visit the 7 Plus website and you’ll be able to stream any of the shows or watch live TV wherever you are in the world.
Are VPN services legal?
Yes, VPN services are completely legal.
Their original purpose is to protect your online privacy to stop hackers and others from snooping on what you’re doing on the internet.
As a part of this privacy protection they allow you to disguise your online location.
In the case of watching 7 Plus outside Australia, the VPN allows you to pretend you’re in Australia even though in reality you’re somewhere else in the world.
Australian politician Malcolm Turnbull even had a section on his personal website stating that VPNs were completely legal to use to bypass geo-restrictions.
So if it’s good enough for the Australian Prime Minister to suggest Australians are OK to bypass geo-restrictions to access content from around the world then it’s OK for those outside Australia to bypass Australian geo-restrictions on sites such as 7Plus.
Don’t forget, all you need is a VPN service like ExpressVPN to watch 7 Plus outside Australia.

Which VPN are you using?
I have my VPN but when I try to play 7 on my computer, laptop of phone I get a circle with a big white X through it. I have changed up browsers with no success either. Is there something else I should do?
