How to watch StarHub Go outside Singapore



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.

In this guide I’ll show you the simple and quick way you can watch StarHub Go outside Singapore in any country in the world.

StarHub Go is without question one of the best online streaming services in Singapore. If you travel outside Singapore you’ll likely find your access blocked.

Like almost every streaming service from HBO Go in the United States, to the BBC iPlayer in the UK, StarHub Go is blocked when you go out of the country.

If you’re like me this can leave you a little disappointed. After all you pay for your subscription so why can’t you watch it anywhere?

The good news is you can by using a little trick. For this, you’ll need a VPN app but I’ll explain more about that below.

What you need to watch StarHub Go outside Singapore

When you try and use StarHub Go either via their app or the website it checks your internet connection. Your internet connection tells StarHub Go where you are which is how they’re able to block you easily.

So if you travel to Malaysia, Australia, America or anywhere else, expect StarHub Go to block you with no messing around.

If you haven’t heard of a ‘VPN‘ app before then it’s going to be your new best friend. A VPN is a totally legal app that allows you to disguise your location so you can appear somewhere else.

This, as you’ve probably already guessed, will allow you to watch StarHub Go outside Singapore in any country.

Where can I get a VPN

VPN apps are sold as subscription services so will cost you a couple of dollars per month.

There are too many VPN companies out there now and wading through the bad ones to get to a good one is not only time consuming but expensive.

I’ve tested loads of different VPN apps and my recommendation for watching StarHub Go is ExpressVPN.

They’re one of the easiest to use, have a massive 30-day risk-free money back guarantee AND if you sign up for their 12-month package they’ll give you 3 months completely free making it 49% cheaper than paying monthly.

However, being the savvy shopper you are you’ll probably want to have a look around at a couple of other good choices.

So here are my Top 3 VPN services for watching StarHub Go outside Singapore.

  1. ExpressVPN – My recommended choice
  2. CyberGhost VPN
  3. IPVanish

Once you’ve decided on one of the above follow the steps below to watch StarHub Go outside Singapore.

Can’t I just get a free VPN?

As well as there being hundreds of different providers of VPN services there are also paid and free ones.

My personal recommendation is to sign up to ExpressVPN which costs just a couple of dollars per month. It’s even cheaper if you sign up for a year.

There are however ‘free’ VPN services out there but these are definitely best avoided.

As you’ll know you get nothing for free in life and even though these services claim to be ‘free’ they are anything but.

‘Free’ VPN services are usually so slow it’s impossible to stream video which will lead to buffering and other poor playback issues.

It’s not just the quality of the video that’s a problem but also the fact they’ll put both your device and privacy at risk.

‘Free’ VPN services need to make money somehow to fund their service and this is often by selling details on your usage or injecting your connection with adverts or other junk.

Recap: How to watch StarHub Go outside Singapore

StarHub Go fans will be pleased to know that it’s entirely possible to watch outside Singapore.

For this you’ll need to get a VPN app which unblocks access. If you try to watch StarHub Go without a VPN then you’ll be blocked.

    Currently in Sydney and I subscribed to ExpressVPN. Worked for SingTel Cast but not StarHub TV+

  2. Melvin Cheong says:

    I purchased and installed ExpressVPN but after connecting VPN (Singapore), when I launch the Starhub TV+ app, it was not successful. I did this when I am still in Singapore. Must I try this only when I am physically overseas?

    • Chris says:

      Hi Melvin,

      No, it would definitely work in Singapore. Did you try all three locations as there are Jurong, CBD and Marina Bay available. You may have better luck with one of the other options.

      Failing that, speak to ExpressVPN support to see if they can assist. Lastly, if none is suitable they have a 30 day money back guarantee so grab yourself a refund.

  3. Hi I am using Nord VPN & currently in Philippines. Unfortunately when I try to access channels in Starhub Go after activating the VPN pointing to Singapore, I am blocked with the error “Unauthorised Location”. Anyone can help!! THANKS
