Luther is the crime drama that sent Idris Elba to stardom but if you’re trying to watch in the United States, Canada, Australia or anywhere else it can be difficult.
I’ve put together this guide to help you out. I’ll be showing you how you can watch Luther in the US, Canada, Australia or anywhere else on the planet!
In the UK Luther is shown by the BBC and online on their streaming service BBC iPlayer. If you try and visit BBC iPlayer to watch Luther outside the UK you’ll be blocked.
Below I’ll show you how you can unblock BBC iPlayer allowing you to watch Luther in any country.
What you need to watch Luther
To watch Luther in the US, Canada, Australia or anywhere else you’ll need to get yourself an app called a ‘VPN’.
A VPN is an online privacy tool that lets you disguise your location so you can appear like you’re in another country. In this case, you’ll want to appear in the UK which will allow you to watch Luther on BBC iPlayer.
There are absolutely hundreds of companies that sell VPN services. Although they all cost approximately the same they can vary widely in quality. It’s important to get yourself a premium VPN service which will let you watch Luther in high-quality and avoid buffering.
For this I recommend using a VPN service called ‘ExpressVPN‘. They’re fast, easy to use and most importantly have a 30-day money back guarantee in case you struggle to get it working.

How to watch Luther in the US, Canada or Australia
Below I’ve put together a step-by-step guide on how you can watch Luther in any country.
In my example, I’m using my recommended VPN service, ExpressVPN. However, you can use any of the three recommended choices from above. They all work similar only the layout of the app will be slightly different.
How to watch Luther anywhere in the world:
- Visit the ExpressVPN service by clicking here and sign-up. It’s 49% cheaper to take a 12-month subscription than pay monthly.
- Download their app from the ‘Products’ area of their website or search ‘ExpressVPN’ on your usual app store and install from there.
- Open the app.
- Press ‘Choose Location‘ (1) and then press ‘United Kingdom‘ (2).
- Wait for the app to connect automatically or press ‘Connect‘ if it doesn’t.
It doesn’t take long for the ExpressVPN app to connect.
When it’s connected any websites or apps you use think you’re in the UK even if you’re in the US, Canada, Australia or any other country.
Now you can either visit the BBC iPlayer website or use their app where you’ll be able to watch all current and future seasons of Luther in your country.

How many seasons of Luther are there?
As I write there are currently 5 seasons of Luther available.
At the time of writing it’s possible to binge watch every season on the BBC iPlayer website or app using a VPN as described above.
All current and future seasons of Luther are available to watch on the BBC iPlayer service and by using a VPN from ExpressVPN you can watch them anywhere in the world.
How to get the BBC iPlayer app outside the UK?
The easiest way to watch Luther is on the BBC iPlayer website when using the VPN app from ExpressVPN.
However, if you want to watch on your tablet or phone then you’ll need to get the app for BBC iPlayer too.
This can be a little more difficult because it’s blocked from downloading from the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store if you’re not in the UK.
To download the BBC iPlayer app you’ll need to follow the steps below.
- Open a new web-browser.
- Enter the URL : https://apkpure.com/bbc-iplayer/bbc.iplayer.android
- Download the app.
It’s a little more difficult to download the BBC iPlayer app on an iPhone or iPad and you’ll need to follow this dedicated guide.
When you’ve got the BBC iPlayer app you can then watch Luther on your tablet or phone.
Recap: How to watch Luther in any country

For this you’ll need a VPN app. A VPN will allow you to watch all current and future seasons of Luther on the UK’s BBC iPlayer service.
