Home and Away is one of the most iconic Aussie TV shows to grace our screens and has been beamed across the world as far as the United Kingdom for many years.
The popularity of shows like Home and Away and Neighbours has dropped over recent years which means finding a place to watch them outside Australia has become increasingly difficult.
In this guide we’ll be showing you the super simple way you can get your Home and Away fix outside Australia. The best news of all is, it works in any country.
So wherever you find yourself in the world you’ll be able to binge-watch Home and Away until your Summer Bay heart is content.
Step 1: Choose a VPN to watch
The first thing to do is choose a ‘VPN’ app.
You’re probably wondering what a ‘VPN’ even is right now, so I’ll explain.
A VPN is an app you download for your tablet, phone, laptop, desktop or other device that allows you to change your online location.
Let’s say you’re in America right now (although it could be anywhere, Bali, Koh Samui etc.) A VPN app allows you to pretend you’re really in Australia.
This allows you to watch Home and Away on 7Plus either via their website or using their app.
There are loads of different VPN apps out there, some are great and some are too slow to watch video so it’s important to choose carefully. After some testing my recommendation is ExpressVPN but there are a couple of other good ones you can choose.
Here are my top options:

Step 2: Sign up and download the VPN
Your next step is signing up for one of the VPN apps above and downloading the app.
A good VPN app will cost you a few dollars per month. My tip is to get a 12-month package though because they can work out nearly 50% cheaper than paying on a monthly basis. If you’re outside Australia for some time this will really make a saving.
Follow the steps below to sign up and download the app.
- Visit one of the three recommended providers above such as ExpressVPN by clicking here and sign up to their service.
- Then go to the ‘Products’ section on their website and download the app for your type of device.
- Open the app and login with your account username and password.
- Press ‘Selected Location‘ (1).
- Then press ‘All‘ (2).
- Then ‘Asia Pacific‘ (3).
- and finally ‘Australia‘ (4).
- You may also need to press ‘Connect‘ (5) depending on the type of device you’re using.
Step 3: Enjoy watching Home and Away
Once you’re connected to the ExpressVPN app just open the 7Plus app or visit the 7Plus Home and Away website.
You can now watch all episodes from the current season as well as some from previous seasons too.
As you can watch the episodes on catch-up you can watch as many or as few as you like at a time. You can also watch them at a time convenient to you.
So if you’re far away from Australia in a timezone that differs massively you can watch at the best time for yourself, even if that happens to be the middle of the night in Australia at the time.

What else can I watch with the VPN?
Even though VPN apps are really cheap you’re not just limited to watching the Summer Bay cast on Home and Away.
You can watch hundreds of other shows on the 7plus service like Border Force Australia, Aussie Salvage Squad, The Good Doctor, Ex on the Beach, Seven News and a whole lot more.
You’re not just limited to watching 7plus either. Other networks you’ll want to check out include TenPlay, SBS On Demand, ABC iView and others.
If you’ve got subscriptions to the likes of Stan, FoxTel Go or other services then you can even login and watch these outside Australia too.
That’s a whole lot of Aussie TV at your fingertips anywhere in the world for less than the price of one of those expensive CBD coffees.
Are VPN apps legal?
Before you start to worry about the legality of VPN apps, don’t.
They’re completely legal.
They actually serve a very useful and important purpose and that’s to help users protect their privacy online.
With so many privacy issues and breaches in recent years, the popularity of using VPN apps has exploded. Not only do they secure what you’re doing online so no one can snoop and steal your privacy but they also let you disguise your location.
This stops companies, hackers and others from tracking what you’re doing online. It just so happens that it’s this that lets you watch Home and Away at the same time.
Summary: Watch Home and Away outside Australia
Watching Home and Away outside Australia is super easy.
For this, you’ll need to get yourself a VPN app from ExpressVPN.
Sign up for their service (remember getting a year package is nearly 50% cheaper) and download their app. Then connect to Australia on the app.
Once you’ve connected you’ll be able to watch Home and Away on the 7Plus website or app from anywhere in the world.
