If you loved the Karate Kid movies then you’ll absolutely adore Cobra Kai. In this guide I’m going to show you how you can watch Cobra Kai in any country in the world from the UK to Canada and anywhere else in between.
Cobra Kai is the brand new series based on the Karate Kid movies. It’s a YouTube Red “Original” which means it’s only available on the YouTube Red service.
Unfortunately YouTube Red is limited to just five countries including America, Australia, New Zealand, Mexico and South Korea.
If you’re outside those countries it means you can’t get YouTube Red which means you can’t watch Cobra Kai directly.
Lucky for you though there is a really simple solution allowing you to watch Cobra Kai absolutely free using a VPN app. Below I’ll show you how.
Watch Cobra Kai in any country
Cobra Kai is shown exclusively on YouTube Red and when you visit YouTube Red outside one of the 5 countries it’s available in you’re blocked from watching. You’ll see an annoying block message such as this:
The good news is it is extremely simple to avoid this block message and sign up to YouTube Red from any country in the world. The result as you may have guessed is, you can watch Cobra Kai in any country on the planet.
To do this you’re going to need to get an app called a VPN. A VPN allows you to change your location so you appear somewhere else in the world. As an example let’s say you’re in the UK or Canada, a VPN allows you to pretend you’re in America.
YouTube Red gives you a 30-day free trial which means it won’t cost you a cent to watch Cobra Kai. A VPN will cost you a couple of US Dollars but you’ll only need a 1-month account to watch the entire Cobra Kai first season.
All that you need to do to watch Cobra Kai in any country such as the UK, Canada or elsewhere is follow the 7 simple instructions below.

What is Cobra Kai
If you’re a child of the 80’s or you just love 80’s movies then Karate Kid is definitely one of the best movies of the era. That’s why you’ll be excited at the release of Cobra Kai.
The series restarts 30 years after the original movies when Daniel LaRusso knocked out Johnny with the now infamous crane kick.
Even more exciting is the original actors Ralph Macchio and William Zabka are back in the new Cobra Kai series. As might be expected both are now running their own rival dojos with a host of mini-karate kids ready to take their place.
The first season of Cobra Kai is on YouTube Red and runs for 10 episodes of around 30 minutes each and as the initial reception has been positive it may be likely a second season will be in the making.
I won’t go into any more detail about Cobra Kai because I don’t want to spoil it for you but after watching a couple of the first episodes I can tell you it’s actually rather good and one you’ll want to watch.
