Traveling abroad but worried about missing out on your favorite shows on Binge? Well, it sure is something to fret about for a TV fanatic like me, as Binge is only available in Australia.

So, the million-dollar question that arises is How to watch Binge in the UK?

The content on Binge is geo-blocked due to content licensing. So, there’s no chance for you to watch it from the UK unless you bypass the geo-restrictions. Well, the scenario certainly seems quite gloomy.

But as the saying goes, there’s light at the end of a tunnel. Yes, there is a solution for this problem. The solution is to bypass the geographical boundaries digitally through a Virtual Private Network aka VPN.

Here I will provide you the best way to watch Binge in the UK that I tested personally. So without any further delay, let’s get started. 

What Is Binge and Why You Can’t Watch it in the UK?

Well, for those who haven’t heard of Binge, you are bound for some pleasant news. Binge is Australia’s one of the best VoD platforms owned by Foxtel (also owner of Kayo Sports). It is quite similar to the likes of Netflix, Disney+ and Stan.

It offers various cool shows and movies like The Big Bang Theory, Modern Family, Arrested Development, The Last of US and Harley Quinn to name a few.

Also, it has a massive list of HBO Max shows and movies. 

Binge’s most special feature is its ‘surprise me’ feature, which, as the name suggests, surprises its viewers by showing a play or movie which they haven’t seen yet. 

Now that’s something cool right?

As an Aussie in the UK, you are missing out on all the fun, but with the use of a reliable streaming VPN,  you’ll be all sorted in a matter of minutes.

How To Watch Binge in the UK (A Quick Guide)

Follow the easy steps and get your VPN installed in a matter of a few minutes 

  1. Subscribe to a VPN preferably with servers in Australia. (ExpressVPN recommended)
  2. Download and install the app on your device.
  3. Connect to a server in Australia (preferably Melbourne server)
  4. As soon as you are connected to a VPNs Australian server, you can open binge on your web browser
  5. You can now start watching Binge in the UK.

How To Sign Up For Binge in the UK

A VPN will only let you access Binge in the UK if you have a valid Binge subscription, if not then you will first have to subscribe to Binge to access it from the UK.

If you have a valid Kayo subscription, you can even use it for subscribing to Binge.

As a new customer you will get the opportunity to avail a 2-week Free trial with Binge.

Follow these steps to complete your subscription process

  • Subscribe to a VPN with Australian servers (ExpressVPN)
  • Connect to a suitable Australian server

  • Add your card details for payment (This is a mandatory step even if you are planning to use the free trial, money will only be deducted once the trial period ends)
  • Log in to your new account and enjoy browsing Binge in the UK.

Note: You can even make payments by using a BINGE voucher

What Is a VPN? And Why Is  It Required To Watch Binge in the UK?

A VPN is a tool through which you can bypass the geographical digital boundaries set up by digital companies to protect their licensing rights.

In easier words an online streaming service can allow users from their local region only to access their content. It verifies the users by an IP address through which they can locate the user’s current location. Now, suppose a user from the UK tries to access Binge he will receive the following message on his screen.

        “ Sorry, BInge is not available outside Australia. Error code:3004”     

Here the role of a VPN comes into action. A VPN hides your current  IP address and replaces it with an IP address from within the region (in this case Australia).

Hence, when the user now approaches the online streaming platform it accepts it considering it to be a local, and you get access to the online library!

These days with advances in technology, websites have become quite smart and easily detect a VPNs IP address. Therefore, you have to be smart in your choice and choose a premium quality VPN which does not get detected by the online channel.

Selecting The Best VPN To Watch Binge in the UK

“The world is a global village”  is a true saying, as people have easy access to another part of the world sitting miles away. And to connect people VPN plays an important role as it bypasses the geo restrictions set by different governments.

Hence, the VPN industry is growing rapidly and there are tons of VPN service providers. Therefore, it becomes an uphill task to select the Best VPN.

Below I have compiled some key features you should consider before purchasing a VPN:

  • Have multiple servers in Australia.
  • Be fast enough to avoid buffering. 
  • Provide fool proof security,strong encryption,kill switches.
  • Have excellent bypassing abilities. 
  • Have an easy user interface to be easily accesible by people of all ages.
  • Supportive and 24/7 available customer support.

The Top Three Best VPNs

ExpressVPN(Top recommendation)

Salient features3500+ servers in 94 different countries including 5 in different cities of (Melbourne, Perth, Brisbane, Sydney, Adelaide)Provides a  download speed of 89.42Mbps MediaStreamer Function is includedA single account can activate 5 devices simultaneouslyInternet kill switch, AES-256 bit encryption, split tunneling and Lightway ProtocolMany devices like iOS, macOS, Android, Windows PC, Linux, routers and gaming consoles are  compatible with itCosts at AU$10.35 per month (get 49% off +3 months free on annual subscription) 30 day free trial with a money-back guarantee

ExpressVPN is my tried and tested option when it comes to VPNs. It provides blazing fast speed when browsing the internet or while downloading or uploading huge files. 

It easily bypasses the geo-boundaries because of the servers available in the same region.

As BInge is quite a latest addition to the streaming industry, it has a strict check on the IP address. Therefore it  instantly recognizes a VPN address and instantly blocks the user. 

In such a scenario, ExpressVPN quickly acts smart. Due to its AES 256-bit technology  it immediately changes the IP address to another one available.

ExpressVPN provides its users with military grade-encryption. It never saves any personal information of the user nor shares it with any third party. This  is one of the many features which elevates it to the top contender post.

The eight devices being used simultaneously on a single device is also an added feather in its cap.

And if you ever get stuck with its operation or face any trouble, the 24/7 available,  efficient and customer support will troubleshoot all your queries in a matter of no time.  

Hence, despite it being on the expensive side of the lot, such amazing factors easily make you overlook it.

The subscription charges for NordVPN are AU$5.1/month and you get an extra 60% off when you apply for a 2 year plan, the cherry on apple being the one month money-back guarantee
