The ITU World Triathlon Series is in full swing and in this guide I’m going to show you how you can watch it completely for free.
No need to sign up for the expensive Triathlon TV service. All you’ll need is a little app called a VPN which I’ll explain a little more about further down in this guide.
The ITU World Triathlon Series is one of the most exciting Triathlon events in the world. Spanning 5 continents the event hits everywhere from Canada to London and the UAE to Australia.
If you’re a Triathlon fan then you’ll no doubt want to watch the coverage but depending where you are in the world your options can be extremely limited. Below I’ll show you how you can watch the ITU World Triathlon Series officially practically free.
ITU World Triathlon Series
The ITU World Triathlon Series is shown around the world in different forms. In some countries they get full live coverage of the event, in others recorded coverage. In some they get highlights and in many countries they get no coverage at all.
If you’re a Triathlon fan and you’re in a country that gets no coverage, highlights or expensive cable coverage only then I’ve got the solution for you.
In the UK the ITU World Triathlon Series is shown live on the BBC network. You don’t require a cable subscription to receive the BBC and their service is shown freely on the TVPlayer website.
However, if you pop over to the TVPlayer website right now and you’re not in the UK then you’ll be blocked from watching.
By using a VPN app from a provider such as ExpressVPN you can unblock BBC iPlayer and watch the ITU World Triathlon Series in any country on the planet.
Below I’m going to show you the simple steps. It’s beginner-friendly and will take less than a few minutes to do.

How to watch the ITU World Triathlon Series
To watch the ITU World Triathlon Series you’ll need to get yourself an app called a VPN. These are offered by more companies than I care to count.
My recommended provider is ExpressVPN because they’ve got a huge 30-day money back guarantee. Also if you want to watch the entire year’s ITU then they’ve got 3-months completely free on their annual package which is well worth checking out.
However, my three recommendations are:
Just click one of the providers above to visit their website. Then follow my steps below which show you how to get and use the VPN to watch the World Triathlon Series anywhere:
- Visit your chosen VPN service, for example my favourite ExpressVPN and sign-up for their service.
- Download the correct app for your device type from the Products section of their site. They support Android, Apple iOS, Windows, Mac & Amazon Fire TV Stick.
- Open the downloaded app and login with your account details.
- Press Choose Location (1) and then click United Kingdom (2).
- The app will automatically connect for you but if it doesn’t press Connect (3).
- Once connected visit the TVPlayer website.
You’ll need to create a free account on the TVPlayer website to watch the BBC but it only requires a name and an email address.
Once you’ve created the account you can watch the ITU World Triathlon Series live on the BBC for free.
If you’re struggling to locate the correct options to connect just take a look at the example image below to see how simple it is.
