In May 2021, BBC released a brand new TV series named The Pursuit of Love. It premiered on May 9th, and they immediately released the first three episodes of the show. It is featuring Lily James and Andrew Scott, and people have been looking forward to watching the TV series since the first trailer was released. Would you like to watch The Pursuit of Love online, just like thousands of other people? In this article, I will tell you how it can be done!
Lily James is a very popular actress who was born in 1989. I remember her for her role as Cinderella in the movie from 2015 (in which she was really beautiful), and since then, she has also played roles in Mamma Mia, Baby Driver, Rebecca, and several other movies.
Andrew Scott has had roles in lots of TV series. To me, he always remains the enemy of Sherlock (Benedict Cumberbatch) in the BBC series Sherlock, but he has also had serious roles in His Dark Materials, 1917, Fleabag, and several other productions.
Now you can watch Lily James and Andrew Scott together in The Pursuit of Love. The TV series is based on the book with the same name written by Nancy Mitford in 1945. But, where can you stream the series?
- Is The Pursuit of Love on Netflix?
- Can you watch The Pursuit of Netflix on HBO Max?
- Which is the best place to watch The Pursuit of Love online?
Keep on reading, and you will find the answer.
How can I watch The Pursuit of Love online?
Currently, the only place where you can stream The Pursuit of Love online is at the BBC website. If you go to BBC iPlayer, you will find the episodes online, and they will be available for free on the BBC website for quite a while.
You can go ahead and visit the page, but if you try to stream any of the episodes, you will most likely see the following error message. That is because you are located outside the United Kingdom.
So, is there a way to watch all the content on BBC iPlayer online for free, even if you live outside the United Kingdom? Yes, there is a solution, and it will even give you access to the BBC live streams, and it can also be used to watch content on other TV networks worldwide such as ITV, ZDF, Rai, RTVE, NBC, CBS, and lots of other services.
The solution is a VPN subscription to ExpressVPN.
How can I watch The Pursuit of Love on BBC iPlayer with ExpressVPN?
It is actually quite easy. A VPN will help you change your IP address and make the BBC website believe that you are in the UK (as you connect to a VPN server in the UK). In the same way, you can connect to a VPN server in the USA and get an American IP address, or you can connect to a server in Japan and get a Japanese IP address. ExpressVPN has servers in almost 100 countries, meaning that the possibilities are endless.
- The first thing you need to do, is to visit the ExpressVPN website and purchase a subscription.
Click the link above to get 3 additional months for free as you purchase a 12-month plan. They have a 1-month full refund policy, so if you don’t like it, you can ask for a full refund at any time. You can use the same subscription on 5 devices at the same time, and ExpressVPN has applications available for Windows, Macintosh, iOS, Android, Fire TV, and more.
- The second step is to download the ExpressVPN application and to connect to a server in the UK.
ExpressVPN has servers all across the world, but look for one of their servers in the United Kingdom and click connect. It normally takes a few seconds for the connection to be made. When you are connected, you will have an IP address in the UK, and all websites will believe that you are in the UK.
- The third step is to visit the BBC iPlayer website in your browser and to create a free user at the BBC website.
It is completely free to register a user on the BBC website. During the registration process of your user, make sure to register it with a ZIP code in the United Kingdom. An example of a UK ZIP code is: W1K 7AA
- Log in with your new BBC user and stream The Pursuit of Love online.
That is it. You should now be ready to watch The Pursuit of Love online in your browser. There are subtitles available as well, making it easier for those who feel more comfortable watching it with subtitles. You might receive a question about whether or not you have a BBC TV license when you start to play content on the BBC website for the first time. If you see this question, just click yes, and get ready to watch all the amazing content on the BBC website.
Here you can see a screenshot I just made as I watched the first episode of The Pursuit of Love on BBC iPlayer with ExpressVPN.
This is just crap… it isn’t working!
I have often received such comments on my articles. One of the most common mistakes is that people don’t follow my instructions. Instead of using ExpressVPN, they look for a free VPN like ProtonVPN, and then they try to use it. Or they use other VPN services like IPVanish and they expect miracles to happen. Forget about it!
It is very crucial that you use ExpressVPN, a VPN provider that I know by experience will give you access to BBC iPlayer, even though you live elsewhere in the world. So, if you are using a different VPN, that is most likely the problem!
A second problem is that BBC iPlayer sometimes stores cookies in your browser. This will cause you to receive the error message seen at the start of the article, even when using a VPN. There are a couple of solutions to this problem.
- Within your browser, you can decide to open a “New Incognito Windows,” also known as a new Privacy Window. This will cause you to open a browser window without any cookies stored, and it will now work perfectly. You can see exactly how this is done in the following video
- You can delete your browser history in the browser. This is unnecessary, so if I would rather go with option number one.
That is it. You should now be ready to watch the romantic BBC series named The Pursuit of Love with Lily James and Andrew Scott online. I hope you will enjoy this series because it is a wonderful production. It has received very good reviews online, so there is no wonder why so many people are interested in watching it online.
Is The Pursuit of Love on Netflix? Or on other streaming services?
I totally forgot to answer this question. This show is not on Netflix at the moment. Normally, the BBC original productions never come to Netflix, but there are a few exceptions. For example, Line of Duty has been sold to Netflix in quite a lot of countries, and the BBC original series named Cuckoo was also sold to Netflix worldwide. In other words, there is a chance that The Pursuit of Love will come to Netflix, but it isn’t there yet.
There have also been situations in which BBC has produced content together with HBO. The TV series Gentleman Jack is an example of that. They have also cooperated with the popular TV series named Killing Eve. In other words, there is a chance that HBO will pick up the TV series in the United States or elsewhere, but nothing can be said for sure about that.
