How to watch the World Triathlon Series live online

The World Triathlon Series is well underway. In this guide we’re going to show you the simple way you can watch the entire series from anywhere in the world absolutely free.

If you’ve tried searching for ways to watch the ITU World Triathlon Series already then you’ll probably have either come across expensive pay-for services or sketchy streams that are illegal.

Not only are sketchy streams illegal but they’re also likely to fill your device or computer full of viruses and other nasty backdoors.

Below we show you how you can watch all the action simply by using a completely legal tool called a VPN. Read on to find out more.

How to watch World Triathlon Series online

The World Triathlon Series is being shown completely free online by UK TV service BBC.

If you’re in the UK you can simply hop over to the BBC iPlayer website where you’ll be able to stream live online.

If you’re outside the UK you’ll be stopped with a block message that looks a little like this:

BBC iPlayer blocked July 17

By using a tool called a VPN you can change your online location to the United Kingdom so instead of seeing the block message above you’ll be able to watch all of the World Triathlon Series action live online from anywhere in the world.

Just follow the 5 simple steps below and you can be watching in no time.

How to watch World Triathlon Series online:

  1. Visit the VPN provider NordVPN by clicking here.
  2. Click Get NordVPN, select a package length and complete the sign-up process.
  3. Visit the VPN Apps section of the website and download the correct app for your device.
  4. Install the app, run it and login when requested.
  5. Select United Kingdom and press Connect.

Below you can see an example of how to connect on both a mobile device and a traditional computer.

Android / Apple device:

NordVPN Android UK

Windows / Mac:


Once the app has connected which should only take about 15 seconds all you need to do is head over to the BBC iPlayer website.

You’ll now be able to stream the entire World Triathlon Series online for free.

Once you’ve finished watching all you need to do is press Disconnect and everything returns to normal.

You can, of course, reconnect at any time as long as you have a valid subscription to NordVPN. If you want to watch the series throughout the year it’s worth signing up for a yearly account because it works out much cheaper.

Other VPN Services

Of course, there are other VPN services available too.

If you want to shop around then you firstly need to look for a VPN service that has a United Kingdom “VPN Server”.

The next requirement is it’s fast enough to stream video from the UK to your location. Not all VPN providers are but a few more good options are:

All three providers work in exactly the same way as NordVPN. We recommend NordVPN because they scored one of our highest ever review scores but the other three providers work equally well.

Just pick one and sign-up, you really can’t go wrong.

Why is World Triathlon Series blocked

World Triathlon Series is blocked because it’s intended to be shown in specific regions only.

In the case of BBC iPlayer it’s intended to be shown in the UK only but if you’re a UK resident and travelling abroad it’s usually impossible to access, by using a VPN you can.

A VPN works by changing what is known as your IP Address.

An IP Address works a little bit like a phone number. It’s unique to you at the time of connection and it helps the internet function by telling bits of data where to go and who requested what.

Unfortunately, your IP Address also gives away your location which is why you’re blocked from watching.

So don’t forget, all you need is a VPN service and to follow the 5 simple steps earlier in this guide. Just click the button below to get yourself one and get started.
