The Good Doctor is an American drama series and if you’re after watching it online I’ve got the details you need.
The show produced by Sony Pictures Television and ABC Studios is an adaptation of the South Korean drama called ‘Good Doctor’.
Watching The Good Doctor in your country might be problematic though because it’s not available everywhere in the world. Even in countries it is available it’s usually only shown on subscription-based cable networks.
There is however a way you can watch The Good Doctor for free online and below I’m going to show you how.
You’ll be pleased to know it doesn’t involve visiting any sketchy websites either, it’s a completely official stream.
How can I watch The Good Doctor online?
The Good Doctor is shown mostly by paid-for cable networks but in Australia it’s shown completely for free by Seven Network.
Seven Network has a pretty decent online streaming service called 7Plus.
7Plus show The Good Doctor absolutely free. You don’t need any kind of subscription or even an account to watch. They’ve currently got both seasons of the show and will have any future seasons too.
If you’re in Australia then you can simply watch on 7Plus’ ‘The Good Doctor‘ page. If you’re outside Australia then you’ll be blocked from watching.
If you want to watch The Good Doctor in another country then you’ll be glad to know you can.
For this, you’ll need a ‘VPN‘ app.
What’s a VPN app and where can I get one?
A VPN is a tiny app available for Android and Apple iOS phones and tablets, Windows and Mac OS computers and laptops, Linux devices and even the Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick.
They cost a couple of dollars per month which gives you plenty of time to binge watch both seasons.
The confusing part is there are hundreds of different VPN providers out there and while they all essentially do the same job, some are a lot better than others.
It’s important to pick a fast one because when you’re watching video you don’t want buffering. For this I recommend ExpressVPN. They’re beginner-friendly and they’ve got a 30-day money back guarantee.
They’re also giving you 3-months completely free if you take their 12-month package right now. That makes it 49% cheaper than paying monthly so is well worth considering.

What’s The Good Doctor about and when is it shown?
The Good Doctor is an American medical drama which follows a young autistic doctor.
The doctor played by actor Freddie Highmore relocates from his quiet country life to a busy city hospital. The show charts the challenges along the way.
The first season had 18 parts and was released in 2017.
The second season as I write is being aired and is shown on 7plus one day after the premiere date in the United States.
By using a VPN it means you can basically watch The Good Doctor anywhere in the world almost at the same time it’s released.

The easiest way to watch The Good Doctor in your country is to use the 7Plus website on a computer or laptop.
For this, all you’ll need is the VPN app from ExpressVPN or one of the other providers and nothing more.
If however you want to watch on a phone or tablet then you’ll need to download the 7Plus app which is a little bit more difficult if your phone or tablet is from outside Australia.
For Android, you’ll need to download the app from here. Rather than the regular Google Play Store. You can visit that link directly using your phone or tablet’s web-browser and download and install the app.
If you use an Apple iOS iPhone or iPad then it’s a little bit more difficult to install the 7Plus app and you’ll need to follow this guide to do so.
