How to watch Brit Box outside the US & Canada
Chris, a UK-born media connoisseur, is an expert in watching international TV. Known as "The Global Screen Wanderer", he has travelled extensively across the globe with long stints away from home. With over 10 years of experience he has become the go-to guru for streaming content from home and abroad.
Brit Box is the best place to catch up on British TV and drama but if you’re outside the US or Canada you’ll find yourself blocked.
In this guide I’ll be showing you how you can watch Brit Box outside the United States and Canada. So if you’ve already got a subscription and you’re travelling overseas or you want to get a subscription to watch in another country, this is the guide for you.
If you try and visit the Brit Box website outside the US & Canada you’ll be blocked from watching or signing up. By using a simple app called a VPN you can unblock Brit Box and watch in any country.
Step 1 : Get yourself a VPN app
The first thing you need to do to watch Brit Box outside the US or Canada is to get yourself a VPN app.
VPN apps are sold by hundreds of different companies and will cost you a couple of dollars per month. The longer you subscribe for the cheaper they become. For example, my recommended provider ExpressVPN is nearly 50% cheaper when taking a 12-month package than paying monthly.
As I said there are hundreds of VPN companies to choose from and while they all basically do the same thing, some are better than others. Some are faster and others slower, this means you could end up with buffering if you choose a poor VPN service.
After years of testing I’ve found ExpressVPN to be about the best for watching Brit Box but there are a couple of other good options which I’ve listed below.

What’s on Brit Box?
Brit Box is a combination of the two leading public TV broadcasters from the UK.
This includes both the BBC and ITV. You can access most British TV shows 24 hours after they’ve aired in the UK meaning you won’t have the shows spoiled by relatives overseas or online write-ups.
Brit Box offers access to the very best shows from the BBC and ITV including things like Vera, Question Time, Poirot, Shetland, Cold Feet, French & Saunders, Only Fools and Horses, Inspector Morse and a whole host more.
How does the VPN app work?
It’s really easy to understand how the VPN app works.
Usually, when you visit the Brit Box website it first checks your location. If Brit Box sees that you’re outside the United States or Canada it blocks you from watching.
When using a VPN your internet connection is first sent to either the US or Canada, the request is then sent on to Brit Box. Brit Box only sees a request from the US or Canada and so let you watch.
The VPN app sends everything back to you wherever you are in the world.
Is it legal to use a VPN?
VPN use is completely legal because the apps serve a legitimate purpose.
Their intended purpose is to protect your online privacy. VPN apps are used by millions of users worldwide to stop companies, hackers and governments snooping on what they’re doing online.
As a sideline they also help you disguise your real location which is how a VPN lets you watch Brit Box in any country.
