How to watch Ackley Bridge online anywhere

Lee Kirwin


Lee is an avid 80's action fan classing Predator and Terminator among his favourites, outside of those he loves Brokeback Mountain. When he's not binging movies he can be found keeping fit, attending Comic Con and wearing Star Wars socks of all things.

If you are a fan of an enjoyable comedy-drama, then Ackley Bridge is the show for you.

With a new season here, I’m sure you will be dying to watch it.

This channel 4 TV show is set in the heart of Yorkshire and sets itself apart from other shows on the channel. I’ll go over the show’s details in a moment, but first, let’s discuss why you are here.

In this article, I’ll be showing you how to unlock and stream Ackley Bridge from anywhere in the world. So if you’re stuck abroad, live abroad or not even from the UK and want to watch, you can.

As it stands, Channel 4’s online streaming platform is only available in the UK and some British territories, which doesn’t bode well if you are currently travelling or residing abroad.

But, as I said, I’m here to give you the solution to your problem. So sit back and get ready to supercharge your device.

After reading this article, you will know how to bypass pretty much any regional restrictions that may be in place, giving you access to more content that you can binge-watch until you’re all binged out.

What you are going to need

So we have already discussed that Channel 4’s on-demand service All 4 is currently only available in the UK and some British territories. This is due to regional restrictions put in place by the channel’s production teams.

To view Ackley Bridge online from anywhere in the world, you will need to use an app called a VPN.

Not sure what a VPN is? Don’t worry, it’s quite simple, and is very easy to set up. (I’ll walk you through the set up soon).

A VPN will give you the ability to connect your device to the internet via servers located all around the globe.

By doing this, it will help you trick streaming services/websites such as All 4 into thinking you are in the UK. This will give you unrestricted access to the show and much, much more.

All of your favourite British TV shows will be just a click away.

Where to get a VPN

When it comes to VPN’s, my personal favourite is ExpressVPN and it’s the one I’ve been relying on for the past couple of years outside the UK.

There are a number of reasons why I rank ExpressVPN as the best VPN on the market, and I’m sure that after trying their service you will be 100% happy with it.

In fact, ExpressVPN is so confident that you will love their service that they offer you a 30-day money-back guarantee.

Additionally, they offer the fastest connection speeds around, meaning blurred pixelated streaming is a thing of the past as you will be streaming in full high definition with no problem.

However, sometimes it is nice to have a choice, so if you would like to browse the market, then you should check out Surfshark VPN and CyberGhost VPN.

It’s up to you who you go with.

What’s Ackley Bridge about?

As mentioned at the beginning of the article, the show is set in a small town in Yorkshire and follows the goings-on at a High School named Ackley Bridge.

The school is currently going under a reform and is being merged with another high school due to budget cuts.

Problems occur as the two schools are very different, one is full of mainly white British locals, and the other school is a Pakistani school. As you can imagine, there is a clash of cultures that will entertain you as the show progresses.

Will the two very different cultures learn to get along? You’ll have to watch the show to find out.

With how things were left at the end of season 3, you will certainly want to tune in for the upcoming season.

Who stars in the show?

Amy-Leigh Hickman – Best known for her roles in Tracey Beaker, The Dumping Ground, Strike Back, Casualty, Doctors, and Eastenders.

Jo Joyner – She is best known for her role in Eastenders, but has also starred in No Angels, Mount Pleasant, The Interceptor, Doctor Who, and Candy Cabs.

Poppy Lee Friar – This actress has starred in The Bill, Little Einsteins, A Touch Of Frost, Mr. Selfridge, and Dustbin Baby.

Liz White – White has starred in The Woman In Black, Our Girl, The Line Of Duty, Call The Midwife, Doctor Who, and Moving On.

In Summary

Ackley Bridge is currently only available to those who are residing in the UK and a select few British territories.

To watch Ackley Bridge free from anywhere else in the world, you will need to use a VPN.

When it comes to selecting a VPN, I recommend that you choose ExpressVPN. They offer top connection speeds and have an excellent track record for quality of service.

They’ve also got the handy 30-day money back guarantee if you’re unsure.
