Travelling abroad is fantastic, but at the same time, you miss your favourite TV shows.

Whether you’re going on vacation, or business travel, or maybe you’re an expat living in another country, the thing is when you’re overseas you aren’t able to access to your home country TV shows.

Thankfully, there is a solution to this problem, so keep reading to find out!

What you’ll need to view abroad

If you want to watch your favourite TV shows overseas, you’ll need a VPN service.

It’s a small app that most people use for online privacy – protecting them from hackers and such.

Australia word

By using a VPN, you can disguise your location and not only stay safer online but also access many shows and services from Australia*.

Where to get a VPN

There are a lot of VPNs on the market. In fact, there are over 500, but not all of them work great.

We found ExpressVPN is the best option for watching video after testing with a whole range of sites and services.

The most important reason is its fast speeds, meaning you’ll have excellent video quality.

Also, it’s effortless to use and configure. As a plus, they offer you a 30-day money-back guarantee in the case the service doesn’t work for you or you aren’t happy with it.

Two more suitable options are NordVPN and IPVanish that share similar characteristics so you’re free to pick the one you like best.

How does a VPN work?

A VPN stands for ‘virtual private network’. It funnels your connection through another country. In this case Australia.

So when you access any apps, services or websites, they see that you’re in Australia.

A VPN’s original purpose is to protect your privacy online and stop hackers and others from snooping on your connection.

As a side benefit, it allows you to change your location virtually. So if you’re in the UK, for example, you can pretend you’re in Australia, or America or wherever else you want to be.

What countries can I use this in?

Basically, everywhere! That’s the beauty of the VPN!

Whether you’re travelling to Europe or America, or you’re planning your holidays in Fiji, or perhaps you have to study abroad in Japan, or going on business travel to England, you’ll always be able to watch your favourite TV shows if you use a VPN.

We love Australia

Don’t worry, as long as you connect using Australia as your location; you’ll never miss a show again.

What services can I access and watch?

By using a VPN when you’re overseas, you can access and watch almost any Australian services you wish as long as you’re not breaking their terms & conditions.

This way, you won’t miss any of your favourite TV shows anymore.

It’s a great way to access free and subscription services.


Travelling abroad can be an exciting experience, but it has a downside: you’ll be missing your favourite TV shows and series because they’re not shown in most countries.

But with the help of a VPN like ExpressVPN, you don’t have to worry anymore!

Follow the easy steps we have shown you in this article, and you’ll get everything working in no time!

Once you’re connected to ExpressVPN or one of the other VPN services, you can enjoy most of your TV shows and series wherever you are as if you were in Australia!
