Have you heard about the TV show named Gogglebox? It is a fantastic show in which we see the reactions of people to different TV shows. How do people react when they see an episode of the TV series Manifest, or maybe as they see an episode of X-Factor? That is what you will find out as you watch an episode of Gogglebox. But, is it possible to watch Gogglebox on Netflix?
It is important to know that Gogglebox is a program produced in many countries. As a result, you will not find the same episodes if you decide to watch Gogglebox on Tenplay in Australia as you will if you watch the same program in the UK on Channel4. But, no matter where you decide to stream Gogglebox, you will for sure have a good time while you do so.
But, how and where can I watch Gogglebox on Netflix?
Based on what I have read and found out during my research, you can currently stream Gogglebox on Netflix in the UK, and that is it. As a result, you will not find this popular TV series on Netflix if you live elsewhere in the world. But, there is a simple solution available to those who want to watch Gogglebox on Netflix in the UK. Did you know that it is possible to watch the movies and TV series on UK Netflix all across the world?
To watch Gogglebox on Netflix in the UK, do the following:
You will need to make Netflix believe that you are located in the UK. This is something you can do by using a VPN service. A VPN will help you change your IP address and hide your real location, and instead show the location of the VPN server that you are connected to.
But, it isn’t enough to use a VPN, because Netflix has discovered that many people use VPN to cross borders virtually, and that is why they are blocking almost all of them. So, it isn’t enough to get a UK IP address, as you need a UK IP address that actually gives access to the content on Netflix in the UK.
I will now give you the names of two VPN services that will help you watch the content on Netflix in the United Kingdom. These can also be used to watch content on Netflix in several other countries, including the United States, Netherlands, Japan, and Canada.
NordVPN is a VPN that works very well with Netflix in the United Kingdom. This VPN has servers in more than 50 countries and it is very easy to use. They also have a money-back guarantee valid for 30 days. NordVPN can be used on six devices at the same time, and they have applications for all the big and important platforms.
If you want to know more about NordVPN, take a look at the following 2-minute video on YouTube.
ExpressVPN is known as the fastest of all VPN services, and it is a brilliant solution for those who want to watch content on Netflix, BBC, ITV, Disney+, CBS All Access, PeacockTV, and other TV networks and streaming platforms online. It is more expensive than NordVPN, so those on a budget might want to go for NordVPN. But, if you want to get one of the best VPNs on the market that in addition will help you stream Gogglebox on Netflix in the UK, give this a try.
ExpressVPN also has a 30-day money-back guarantee, meaning that you can ask for a full refund whenever you want to within the first 30 days after you purchase a subscription. ExpressVPN has servers in 95 countries and they allow you to use the same subscription on five devices simultaneously. They also have applications for Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, and other platforms, making it easy to stream all your favorite Netflix content on many platforms.
Use a VPN and watch Gogglebox on Netflix
When you have bought your VPN subscription, download the VPN application to your computer, mobile, tablet, or TV. Run the VPN and connect to a server in the UK. You are now ready to open your Netflix application and to watch Gogglebox online. Isn’t that cool?
If your Netflix account is registered within the EU
EU regulations make sure that EU members always will have access to their “home” Netflix content whenever they travel within the European Union. This means that someone from Germany can use NordVPN/ExpressVPN and connect to a server in the UK, or travel to the UK, and they will still see the content of German Netflix. This is due to EU regulations. The only way to fix this is by changing your Netflix subscription to a country outside the EU. It might sound complicated, but it is easy and it will save you a lot of money. You can read more about how it is done and how it works right here.
A Gogglebox story
John and Wendy are ready for a fantastic evening in front of the TV. They have cold beer and a big jar with popcorn prepared. It is time for Britain’s Got Talent, and they don’t really know what to expect. They do not have to wait for a long time before Wendy says: “Hey, that is terrible. Who told that person to enter such a contest? She cannot even sing?.” John is uncapable of answering, he is laughing so hard that the popcorn on his lap is flying around the room, and he almost made the beer fly out of his mouth.
After some minutes listening to the jury, John just knows for sure that he doesn’t like Simon. He seems so grumpy, and he cannot understand how they could let such a man be a part of an otherwise friendly jury. Wendy looks at him and says: “He is the inventor of the show, of course he has to be a part of the jury, you stupid!” The next contestant is a magician, and Wendy hides behind her fingers as the magician is about to eat a knife. Is that even possible? How can he do it? That is dangerous? John just laughs, and hopes that the jury will be nice to the magician.
The third contestant is a dancer. John gets up on the table and tries to dance in the same way. After kicking the remaining beer into the lap of Wendy, he sits down and says that he will apply for Britain’s Got Talent the next year, if they decide to run the show for one more season. Wendy says that John will look even more stupid than all the other contestants they have seen on the TV so far.
Once they have finished watching Gogglebox, John and Wendy prepares to stream the Netflix series Designated Survivor. Hey look, it is Jack Bauer! – says John. Wendy has no clue about who Jack Bauer is, and that is when John tells her about Kiefer Sutherland playing the role of the never-dying, all bearing agent named Jack Bauer from the Fox-series 24. They have a great time watching it, but they also discuess the characters they see, and make assumptions about who will be the good guys and the bad guys of the series.
This might just be a short story, but Gogglebox is really about watching people watching TV. Of course, they are not the average viewers, because most people just sit in front of their TV and look at the screen. The people watching TV in Gogglebox are way more active, coming with cooler comments, moving around more, but still – they reflect on what they see, and it is actually quite amusing.
