There are an estimated 200,000 Filipinos living in the UK and if you're one of them then you probably want to access TV from the Philippines.
In this guide, I'm going to show you how you can do just that and watch your favourite TV shows and networks from the Philippines right here in the UK.
For this, you'll need to get an app called a ‘VPN‘ which aren't as scary as they sound.
There are hundreds of providers of VPN apps but I recommend ExpressVPN for watching Filipino TV in the UK. Below I'll be showing you how to use a VPN to watch Filipino TV in the UK and more VPN options if you want to shop around.
How to watch Filipino TV in the UK
To watch Filipino TV in the UK you need a ‘VPN' app. This comes as a subscription service which will cost a few pounds per month. Services are almost always charged in US Dollars.
There are hundreds of VPN providers but the three I have tested and recommend for watching Filipino TV in the UK are:
My recommendation is to sign up for ‘ExpressVPN‘ because they're slightly faster than the competition which reduces the chances of buffering and other playback issues.
They also have a handy 30-day money back guarantee which will let you use the service risk-free. If for some reason it doesn't work for you then you can just get all your money back.
Once you've decided on one of the three providers above, follow the simple steps below to watch Filipino TV in the UK.
Step-by-Step how to watch
You're probably thinking it's going to be really difficult and complicated to use a VPN to watch Filipino TV in the UK but you'll be surprised just how easy it is.
The VPN app takes care of all the hard work for you, all you need to do is point it to the correct country. Follow the steps below to do just that.
How to watch Filipino TV in the UK Steps:
- Visit the ExpressVPN website or one of the other providers and sign up for their service.
- Once you've signed up go to the ‘Products' section of their website and download their app.
- Install and open the app and login when required.
- Select ‘Choose Location‘ or on a mobile press ‘Selected Location'.
- Then press ‘All‘ or ‘All Locations', then ‘Asia Pacific‘ and finally ‘Philippines‘
- Press ‘Connect‘ or let the app automatically connect for you.
Now that you're connected to ExpressVPN or one of the other providers you can watch Filipino TV in the UK.
The websites or apps that you use now think you're in the UK.
This means you can access any Filipino TV website such as TV5 without restriction. If you tried to visit TV websites or use their apps without using a VPN then you would be blocked from watching.
Filipino TV Networks
If you're from the Philippines then you'll already know the most popular networks to watch your favourite TV shows.
As you'll know there are both national and regional TV networks. Now you're using a VPN you can access any of these that have online streaming websites or apps that you would usually use in the Philippines.
Some of the best to try if you're looking for examples are:
- GMA Pinoy TV
- Jack TV
- The Filipino Channel
and more. Simply search out your favourite Network on Google and look for their online live streaming site or app. Now you're using ExpressVPN or one of the other providers you'll be able to unblock and watch them in the UK.
Can I watch Filipino TV on my mobile?
Yes, definitely. All three VPN providers recommended above offer mobile apps.
These work with any type of Android or Apple iOS device. If you've got a mobile or phone running Android or an Apple iPhone or iPad then you'll be able to use the VPN to watch your favourite Filipino TV networks in the UK on it.
It's the same process as detailed above. Sign up for one of the providers such as my recommended one ExpressVPN and then download their app from your regular app store.
You can then watch Filipino TV in the UK on your mobile phone or tablet.

If for some reason you can't get it working then there is no need to worry.
All three recommended providers offer money back guarantees. For example, ExpressVPN gives you a massive 30-days to test their service. If it doesn't work or isn't for you then you can get a full refund question free.
