Versailles is back for Season 3 and if you want to watch right now in the US I’ve got the details you need.
When I say Versailles is back I mean it’s out now, but the issue is, it’s out in the UK but not in the US.
Versailles, as you’ll be aware, is shown in the UK by the BBC first which means we in the US have to wait a bit longer until it arrives.
Unfortunately, Versailles Season 3 won’t be hitting US shores until sometime in October on Ovation. If you can’t wait until October (and who can blame you) or you don’t have Ovation then you’ll be eager to watch now.
Thankfully there is a really simple way you can watch Versailles Season 3 right now in the US and below I’m going to show you how.
Watch Versailles Season 3 in the US
Versailles is currently being aired in the UK as I type this and it’s about 2 or 3 episodes in.
The series is being shown on the BBC network in the UK and at the same time, it’s streamed live online and on catch-up on the BBC iPlayer service.
In a perfect world you would just be able to pop along to the BBC iPlayer website and watch in the US. Unfortunately the world isn’t perfect and if you try to visit BBC iPlayer in the US to watch Versailles Season 3 then you’ll be blocked.
The good news however is there is a little workaround that will let you access BBC iPlayer and so will let you watch Versailles Season 3 in the US right now.
To do this you don’t need to be technically minded, all you’ll need is an additional app called a VPN.
A VPN is a legal privacy tool that lets you change your online location.
Don’t worry, although VPN apps sound really technical and scary they really aren’t and below I’m going to show you where to get one and how to use it.
How to watch Versailles Season 3 in the US
To watch Versailles Season 3 in the US right now you’ll need to sign up for a VPN service.
There are hundreds of companies who offer VPN services but not all are suitable. Three I recommend are:
In the example below I’m using ExpressVPN because I find them to be just that little better than the other two but they’ll all work so just choose one – it doesn’t really matter which. Then follow the steps below.
How to watch Versailles Season 3 in the US:
- Visit your chosen VPN service, for example, ExpressVPN by clicking here. They’ve got a money-back guarantee so don’t worry if you can’t get it working.
- Once you’ve completed sign up go to the ‘Products‘ section of the website and download and install the correct app for your device. You should also copy down the activation code.
- Open the newly installed app and login either with your activation code or the email and password you signed up with.
- On the app press ‘Choose Location‘ (1) and then tap on ‘United Kingdom‘ (2).
- The app should automatically connect for you but if not just tap the large Connect button.
- Once the app has connected just head over to the BBC iPlayer Versailles Season 3 page where you’ll be able to watch from the US.
You can now watch the entire Season 3 of Versailles in the United States.
BBC iPlayer gives you the option of watching on catch-up or live. Depending on when you’re reading this it’s possible there are still episodes to be released and you’ll be able to watch these as they are shown live in the UK.
It may however be easier to watch on catch-up as the UK can be between 5-8 hours ahead of the US which means you would often have to watch in the daytime. Watching on catch-up means you can watch at any time.
When you’ve finished watching simply press the Disconnect button on the ExpressVPN app and then reconnect in the future when you’re ready to continue watching Versailles.
About Versailles Season 3
Don’t worry, this section doesn’t contain any spoilers and I’m not going to share anything about the show that will ruin your viewing enjoyment.
The current season of Versailles at the time of writing is shown every Monday night on BBC2 at 9 pm UK time which is between 1 – 4 pm US time depending what state you’re in.
Season 3 is expected to run for ten episodes which will see it finish sometime in June or August. Which is a cool 2 – 3 months before it even starts in the US. If you want to avoid online spoilers then this is definitely the best way to watch.
Sadly, it has been announced that Versailles has been cancelled from Season 3 which means it will be your last opportunity to watch this racy French period drama.
Recap How to watch Versailles Season 3 in the US
Watching Season 3 of Versailles in the US is a lot easier than you may think. You don’t need to wait until October for the official US airing.
With an app called a VPN you can tap into the UK stream and watch right now on your computer, tablet or phone.
I recommend using ExpressVPN because they’re one of the easier to use VPN services. You can get it by clicking the orange button below. Once you’ve signed up simply download their app, connect to the UK and then you can watch Versailles Seasons 3 right now in the US on BBC iPlayer.
