Global TV is a fantastic streaming service/TV channel in Canada, and they give you access to awesome TV series and content at their website. But, how can you watch Global TV in Canada abroad? Which is the best VPN for Global TV? Get ready to stream Global TV online all across the world!
There are lots of great TV networks in Canada, and for sports, CBC might be my favorite one. But, if you plan on streaming CBC outside Canada, or maybe Global TV, you will quickly realize that something is wrong. Because, when you try to visit the Global TV website or open their application on your device while residing outside Canada, you will see an error message looking like this.
If you are afraid about this being very complicated, you can stop sweating immediately. This is going to be very easy, and you can start watching Elementary, Bull, Big Brother, or some other show on Global TV in a few minutes from now.
A VPN is the solution if you want to stream Global TV outside Canada
The solution is to use a VPN service. What is a VPN? Didn’t I just promise you that it would be easy! Well, it is, and you don’t even have to read this. So, if you don’t really want to know and understand what a VPN is, simply jump to the next topic telling you how to watch Global TV abroad in a few steps. But, if you want to understand what actually happens as you use the method, read the next couple of sentences as well.
A VPN is an abbreviation for a Virtual Private Network. That is, when you sign up for a VPN service, you can freely connect to any of their servers worldwide. When you connect to a server in Canada, all your traffic (by default) will be routed through the VPN tunnel. There are ways to send only certain traffic through the VPN tunnel (that is, split-tunneling), but normally, all your traffic is sent through the VPN server. The traffic is then sent through the VPN tunnel, and in the tunnel it is very dark (encrypted) and impossible for outsiders to see what is going on. When you surf the Internet, everyone will believe that you are located in Canada and that the traffic comes from the server in Canada that you are connected to. There is no way of tracking your connection back to you, and thus, you can access Canadian streaming services using a VPN outside Canada. In the same way, you can also use a VPN to unblock American streaming services, and much more!

Would you just like to know exactly how you can watch Global TV all across the world? This is what you need to do!
- First, buy a VPN subscription to either PureVPN or ExpressVPN, two of the best VPN providers on the market.
PureVPN is a Hong-Kong based VPN provider with servers in more than 100 nations worldwide. Their refund policy is valid for 31-days, and they can be used to unblock popular streaming services such as BBC, ITV, NRK, SVT, ZDF, Amazon Prime, American Netflix, and of course, to unblock Global TV in Canada.
If you buy an ExpressVPN subscription, you are protected by their 30-day full refund policy. Their VPN product is more expensive than PureVPN, but they support even more streaming services, and their servers are faster. They can actually unblock 7-8 different Netflix regions and lots of other sites and services.
- Download the VPN application of PureVPN or ExpressVPN after signing up. Both VPN providers have applications available for Windows, for Macintosh, for iPhone/iPad, Android devices, Android TV’s, Smart TV’s, Amazon Fire TV, and they also have browser extensions for Firefox and Chrome.
- Run the application and connect to a server in Canada.
- Restart your browser or the Global TV application.
- Enjoy watching Global TV abroad
That is a really easy way to watch Global TV abroad. Are you satisfied? Do you have even more questions?
How to download the Global TV application to your Android device?
Do you have an Android device, but cannot find the Global TV application in the Google Play Store? That is a very common problem, and the solution is even easier. There are, of course, complicated solutions as well, but the easy solution is this.
Once you have downloaded the application, install the program. It might be that you will have to confirm that you allow installation of programs from unknown sources. If that question shows up, answer yes, or change the settings on your Android device to allow programs from unknown sources.
Besides installing the Global TV application, you will still need the VPN subscription as described earlier.
How to download the Global TV application to iPhone and iPad?
Do you have an iPhone or an iPad and want to install the Global TV application to your device? It is a bit more complicated because you actually need to create a brand new Apple ID registered with an address in Canada. For this to work, you will also need to have a VPN up and running (as described earlier), connected to a server in Canada.
To create a new Apple ID, visit the Apple ID site. Register with an actual address in Canada. If you don’t know of any, search for the address of a hotel in Quebec or in Vancouver, and use that address (or somewhere else). Once the registration is done, change the account on your iPhone or iPad that you want to use for the Apple Store. Log in with your new Canadian Apple ID. You will then find the Global TV application in the Apple Store. After you have downloaded it, you can switch back to your old Apple ID again. The Global TV application will still work perfectly!
For how long can you stream brand new TV show episodes on Global TV?
There are lots of fantastic shows on Global TV. If you like Bull, NCIS, Elementary, FBI, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, or some other Global TV, the new episodes are normally available at the website for 7 days after it aired. In other words, you better hurry up and watch all your favorite episodes immediately after they have aired.
Can I watch the Global TV live stream with a VPN?
The live stream on Global TV isn’t available for normal users. But, if you have an actual cable subscription in Canada, you can use your credentials and stream Global TV live online as well. You still need the VPN (if you are abroad), but you will also get access to the live stream.
