ITV is one of the best TV channels on earth, at least if you are a fan of popular TV series such as Britain’s Got Talent, Who Wants to be a Millionaire, Emmerdale, Champions League matches and lots of other stuff. But, if you want to watch ITVPlayer from abroad you will have a problem because you need a UK IP address to watch it!
If you want to watch CBS from outside the USA, you need an American IP address, and the principle is the same for those who want to watch ITV from outside the UK. You need a UK IP address, and the best way to get it is to use a VPN service named ExpressVPN. A VPN is a secure connection that is established between your computer and a computer somewhere else. When a connection is made your activity online will seem to originate from the server you are connected to. The result when connecting to a server in the UK is thus that you get a UK IP, which again makes it possible for you to watch ITV from abroad.To watch ITV online you now need to register on ITV.com. That is easy, just fill in the forms with your name, a password, and your email address, date of birth and a postcode in the UK. If you do not have a UK postcode, scroll down to the bottom of this article, and you will find suggestions for postal codes that can be used.
Watch ITV online with VPN
If your goal is to watch ITV from abroad, maybe Britain’s Got Talent, Love Island, the FIFA World Cup, Coronation Street or some other program, this is what you need. It will not only help you watch ITV from abroad, but it will also take care of your privacy online, and it will give you a real UK IP address. Hence you will be able to watch ITV live streams available online and of course use the ITV Player from abroad. There are several services offering IP address in the UK, but the best is ExpressVPN.
Once you have visited the ExpressVPN website, make sure to sign up for their services, download their client and open the ExpressVPN application. As you open the ExpressVPN application, press “Choose location.” Now you should find United Kingdom. Choose East London (for example). Double click, and it will automatically connect. Once connected you have a UK IP address, and you are ready to watch ITV from abroad. This also works on Android and iOS systems!
We are writing this article from outside the UK and have tested this ourselves and can tell you that it is working. Just take a look at the following screenshot which we just took watching the ITV live stream from abroad.
If you use an Android device you will need to manually download the ITV Hub application if you haven’t installed it yet. You can download the ITV Hub application from APKPure.com. After downloading install the application, and you should be ready to go.
It might be that your phone will warn you about installing applications from unknown sources. That is no problem, turn on the ability to install from unknown sources (if you get such a warning), and you will have the ITV Hub application installed quickly.
UK postal code to watch ITV online
ITV now asks you to enter a postal code when starting their live online stream to find out where you reside. We have tried with different postal codes, and it seems all that matters is that it needs to be a UK postal code. Here you can find some examples of postal codes that should be working: W1K 7AA – SW1A 1AA – SW1A 0AA – L4 0TH
Good luck and enjoy watching ITV online from outside the United Kingdom. If you want to watch BBC and other TV channels online as well, read these instructions.
