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 be showing you how you can watch This Time with Alan Partridge outside the UK from any country in the world.

“I don’t like big feet. It reminds me of gammon.” yep, if you’re an Alan Partridge fan, then this quote will standout amongst his hundreds of witty, hilarious or downright insane comments.

The good news for you is Alan Partridge is back on TV screens in the UK some 25 years after he was first dreamed up by Steve Coogan.

Just as the realisation was sinking in that we wouldn’t see Partridge again, he’s back for a new six-part comedy series titled “This Time with Alan Partridge”.

It’s being shown on the UK’s BBC Two channel. If you’re outside the UK, then you’re unlikely to find it on your local TV networks which is why I’ve put together this guide. In this guide I’ll be showing you how you can watch Alan Partridge’s new show anywhere in the world.

How to watch This Time with Alan Partridge

If you’re in the UK then watching This Time with Alan Partridge is simple.

You can either tune into BBC Two at the time it’s broadcast ‘live’ or alternatively if you miss the ‘live’ airing then you can catch-up at a later date on BBC iPlayer.

If you’re outside the UK then things are a little more complicated, but thankfully not too complicated.

You’ll also need to watch on the BBC iPlayer service but to do this you’ll need a VPN app otherwise you’ll be blocked!

What’s a VPN app? It sounds technical!

Before you quit in fear of the dreaded ‘VPN’. Hear me out.

A VPN is a simple privacy app. It stops companies and hackers from tracking what you’re doing on the internet. Usefully, it also lets you change your location.

So if you’re in Australia for example, you can change your location to the UK.

The result? BBC iPlayer no longer blocks you and you’ll be able to watch This Time with Alan Partridge wherever you find yourself in the world.
