So if you’re travelling outside the UK for a period of time, an expat or even someone who isn’t from the UK at all but loves The Voice UK then officially you can’t watch.
The great news is there is a really simple way to unblock ITV Hub which will let you watch The Voice UK outside the UK from anywhere in the world.
Below we’re going to show you how in just 5 simple steps. Read on The Voice fan and you’ll soon be watching your favourite signing show anywhere in the world.
How to watch The Voice outside the UK
The Voice is shown on ITV Hub (formally known as ITV Player) but if you visit this outside the UK you’re blocked from viewing with a message that looks something a little like this:
The reason you’re blocked is clear, you’re not in the UK.
By using an app called a VPN you can make it appear as if you are in the UK allowing you to watch The Voice from anywhere in the world.
Just follow the simple steps below.
How to watch The Voice outside the UK Step-by-Step:
- Visit the VPN provider IPVanish and sign-up. (There’s a 7-day money back guarantee so it’s risk free)
- Download their app for your PC or Mac from their website or from the Android or Apple apps store.
- Install the app, run it and when required, log in.
- Select United Kingdom (1) in the bottom right-hand corner.
- Press Connect (2).
It takes about 15 seconds for the IPVanish app to make connection.
Once it’s connected all you need to do is either launch the ITV app on your mobile device or visit the ITV Hub website.
Instead of seeing the block message from earlier you’ll now be able to watch The Voice either live or on catch-up TV outside the UK.
Can I watch The Voice on my mobile device
If you’ve already got the ITV Hub app installed on your phone or tablet then you can watch outside the UK using the method described above.
Just sign up to IPVanish as explained above and download their app, connect to the UK and then launch the ITV app where you’ll be able to watch The Voice no matter where you are in the world.
Are VPN services legal
Yes, VPN services are completely legal.
Their original purpose is to protect your online privacy. This stops people from snooping on what you’re doing while on the internet.
As part of this privacy protection a VPN allows you to disguise your location so websites and others can’t track you easily.
When you change your location on a VPN to another country, for example the United Kingdom, any websites that you visit think you’re in that country. Due to this ITV Hub allows you to watch The Voice anywhere in the world.
Alternative VPN services
IPVanish is our number one recommended VPN service and they work well for streaming video.
However, there are alternative VPN services available too and if you want to shop around there are a few other VPN services you may want to check out.
Unfortunately not all VPN services work with ITV Hub so it’s not just a case of signing up to any.
We’ve been testing a whole host of services to see which work well for watching The Voice. If you want to check out the competition then three more good providers are:
- CyberGhost VPN
All three providers work exactly the same as IPVanish. Simply sign up to their service, download their app for your device, connect to the United Kingdom and then launch either the ITV Hub app or visit the ITV Hub website.
You’ll now be able to stream The Voice anywhere in the world.
