Carolina, who originally hails from Argentina is a movie buff through and through. She enjoys nothing more than binge-watching the latest Netflix series and is a big fan of their 'Originals' line. Her favourite movie is Frozen and she's a big fan of The Good Place & The Dragon Prince.
Wouldn’t it be great if you could stream Bigg Boss in ANY country?
However, the reality is, it’s just not officially available anywhere outside India.
The good news is, it doesn’t need to be like this and by using a VPN app you can watch it in any country. Later in this guide, I’ll be showing you how.
Bigg Boss and Bigg Boss OTT is an Indian reality TV show based on the Big Brother English reality show format where a group of people are selected as housemates, and they’re eliminated from the show based on the audience’s votes.
If you’re addicted to this show or reality TV like it and want to view the new season, but you aren’t living in India, you’ll find out that the show is blocked in the rest of the world.
Does this sound like you?
Don’t worry! Keep reading this guide where you’ll learn how to skip the blocking and enjoy Bigg Brother wherever you are.
What you’ll need to watch
Bigg Boss is available online on Voot which streams all the shows belonging to the Colors TV channels.
Sadly, when you want to access the Voot website outside India, you get a message that the service is not available in your country or region.
The solution to this is using a simple VPN app.
It sounds crazy that a simple app will allow you to watch anywhere, right?
A VPN is a virtual private network with the primary objective of protecting your privacy online.
How? By concealing your actual location by connecting you to a server in another country.
As a side benefit, if you connect, let’s say to a server in India, you’ll be able to watch Bigg Boss as if you were there.
Where can I get a VPN?
There are a lot of options when it comes to VPN services, but not all of them work correctly.
My recommendation is ExpressVPN which is the best one.
Why? Well, ExpressVPN is perfect for watching videos. It has fast connection speeds, this way you avoid the annoying buffering and assure yourself excellent video quality.
The ExpressVPN app is available for all devices such as computers, laptops, phones, tablets and all different OS so you can watch the show anywhere on any device.
And lastly but not less important, it has a 30-day money-back guarantee in case you don’t like the service or if you can’t get it working for some reason.
Also, if you subscribe for the 12-month package you get a lower price, and as a bonus, it comes with three free months, giving you a total of 15 months for the price of 12.
If you want to give another service a try then, NordVPN and CyberGhost VPN are good options as well so you’re free to pick.

How can I watch Bigg Boss 13 with English subtitles? I don’t speak Hindi but would
Love to watch….thank you
The show should have subtitles available if it is part of the standard service.
I just don’t understand why the voot app is not available outside India. And why can’t we watch it.
Unfortunately it’s not ‘officially’ – but by using a VPN described here, you can watch anywhere.
Hi Chris. VOOT works with ExpressVPN. But I wanted to watch 247 live which requires Voot Select. 299 INR is no big deal but they do not accept international credit/debit card. Any workaround please?
All I can suggest is trying a website like Fiver, Freelancer or Upwork and see if you can hire someone in India to sign up on your behalf. You would probably have to pay them for their “time”. I’m not sure of a better solution unfortunately.
