Czech people are becoming one of the most travelled peoples in the world. You can find people who hail from the Czech Republic in nearly every country these days.
From the UK to Australia and Canada there are thousands of Czech people living abroad.
If you're a travelling Czech citizen or you live in another country then one thing you're going to miss from home is Czech TV.
Unlike English TV, American TV or other more widely spoken languages you're unlikely to find Czech TV shows on UK TV or the TV of other countries.
If you've tried to visit some of the most popular online Czech streaming services like Česká televize, Prima televize or Nova then you'll already know you're blocked.
You'll be happy to know that by using an app known as a ‘VPN‘ you can watch Czech TV in the UK or any other country and below I'll show you how.
What you need to watch Czech TV in the UK
When you visit any of the Czech TV websites they check your internet connection to see what country you're in.
When the site sees you're in the UK or any other country outside the UK then they block you.
The Czech TV websites know what country you're in from your internet connection.
However, by using an app called a VPN you can change your location and make it look as if you're in the Czech Republic even though you're really in the UK or elsewhere.
There's a lot of companies who offer VPN apps but I recommend ExpressVPN.
They're really easy to use, work with all the most popular Czech TV services and most importantly they've got a 30-day money back guarantee giving you plenty of time to test it and see it working risk-free.
If you've got time though it's worth taking a look at some of the other options, although they all do pretty much the same job.
Here are my top 3 VPN services for watching Czech TV in the UK:
- ExpressVPN – Recommended, 30 day money back guarantee.
- IPVanish – 7 day money back guarantee.
- NordVPN – 30 day money back guarantee.
Once you've chosen one of the above providers and signed up follow the steps below.

What Czech TV networks can you watch?
Once you're connected to the VPN service from ExpressVPN you can watch any Czech TV services that offer online streaming.
This includes both free-to-air TV and any you (or your family) have a paid subscription to.

- Česká televize for CT1, C2, CT24, CTSport and others
- Prima televize with Prima Cool, Mac, Krimi, Love & Zoom

Can I watch Czech TV on an actual TV?
It's easiest to watch Czech TV on a laptop or regular desktop computer because you only require the VPN service.
If you've got any Czech TV apps on your phone or tablet then it's also possible to watch on those.
If you want to watch on an actual TV then the best option is to use an Amazon Fire TV Stick. It's an inexpensive device that plugs into the back of your TV allowing you to use online services.
You can install the ExpressVPN app directly on to the Amazon Fire TV Stick and then use either the built-in Silk Browser or FireFox to access any of the Czech TV services mentioned above or any more of your personal favourites.
Recap: How to watch Czech TV in the UK
Watching Czech TV in the UK need not be difficult.
While there is no official TV channel you can subscribe to it is possible to access all your favourite Czech TV sites another way.
For this you'll need a VPN app from ExpressVPN. You can get their service by clicking the button below and signing up.
It's worth taking their 12-month package if you're in the UK for a while because they give you 3 months totally free on top which makes it 49% cheaper than paying per month. If you're like me, you love getting things cheaper!
Once you've signed up for their 12-month deal download their app and connect to the Czech Republic. You can now watch as much Czech TV in the UK as you want.
It also works in other countries too so why not give it a try?
