In this guide I’m going to show you how you can watch the latest season of the Great British Baking Show months before it airs in your country.
Did you know that in England, the Great British Baking Show is actually called ‘the Great British Bake Off‘? It’s rebranded for the US and other markets.
Did you also know that not only do countries like the US, Canada and others show the show long after it’s been shown in England but this can be literally months or even years later depending what country you’re in.
Below I’ll show you how you can watch the latest season of Great British Baking Show well before it’s shown in your country.
Step 1: Get yourself a VPN service
The Great British Baking Show is shown in England on Channel 4, it used to be a BBC production until it moved network.
This means the show is shown completely for free to viewers in England on Channel 4’s ‘All 4’ streaming service. If you’re outside England in the US, Canada, Australia or somewhere else, you’ll be blocked from viewing.
However, by using a small app called a ‘VPN‘ you can bypass this block and watch in your country.
I recommend you use ExpressVPN for this purpose even though there are hundreds of companies selling VPN services. They’re slightly easier and more reliable than the others. However, if you want to shop around any of the following three will be suitable.

All you need to do first is choose one of the above, click their name to visit their website and sign-up.
It’s definitely a good choice to sign up to ExpressVPN because they’ve got a 30-day money back guarantee. If you can’t get it working then just get your money back.

Does this work on a mobile or tablet?
Yes, as well as working on a regular computer or laptop the above method will work on a mobile or tablet.
You may find when you visit the All 4 website you’re pushed to download the All 4 app for your device. As you’re outside its intended country it might not let you proceed with downloading.
For this you’ll need to do something called ‘sideloading’ the app. Follow the instructions below depending on what type of device you’ve got to do this.
To download the All 4 app onto your Android mobile or tablet you need to open up your regular web-browser. You should then type in the following address : https://apkpure.com/all-4/com.channel4.ondemand
Once the app has installed you can connect to the VPN as detailed above and then open the All 4 app to watch the latest season of The Great British Baking Show.
To download the All 4 app for an iPhone or iPad is a little bit more difficult and you should refer to this guide to help you out downloading it.
