Though you can catch some of the biggest DC universe shows like The Flash and Arrow on Netflix UK and Now TV, The CW’s latest superhero flick Batwoman (starring Ruby Rose) isn’t yet available on any of the UK streaming channels.
But there’s no need to fret just yet, as there is a method for watching Batwoman in the UK through using a VPN. We have similar guides for watching The Mandalorian in the UK, or watching Doctor Who from abroad. Read on to find out more.
Use a VPN to stream Batwoman
To gain access to The CW’s catch-up service, you’ll need to use a VPN. VPNs (virtual private networks) change your IP address, which consequently means that you can browse the net as if you’re in another country. For the largest range of servers, easiest user-experience and value for money, we recommend NordVPN. Another strong option would be ExpressVPN.
You can find out what other VPNs we recommend in our roundup of the best VPNs for streaming. There’s also free VPNs available, however these usually come with limited server options, which may make streaming quite difficult.
The CW doesn’t charge for streaming content on their website - nor does it require you to create an account. Once you’ve downloaded your VPN of choice and chosen a US server, you simply need to head over The CW website, and click on Batwoman.
There, you’ll be able to find all existing episodes of the first season. You’ll also be able to stream episodes live as they air - though this will be during the middle of the night UK time.
If you’re looking to watch Batwoman specifically for Crisis on Infinite Earths, we have a guide for which episodes you need to watch.
Batwoman on E4
Though Batwoman isn’t yet available in the UK, Channel 4 has announced that E4 will be syndicating the show at some point in 2020 - meaning that it will be available to stream on All 4. We don’t know yet when this will be, but we’ll be keeping an eye on any announcements.
Will Batwoman be coming to Netflix UK or Now TV?
One thing we do know is that according to The Verge, The CW hasn't renewed its contract with Netflix US, so Batwoman definitely won’t be coming to this service. The UK may potentially have a different deal, especially because Titans is available on Netflix UK, and not the US. Currently nothing has been confirmed, but we wouldn’t rule out seeing Batwoman on Netflix UK in the future.
Sky has also not secured the rights to Batwoman, so we’re unlikely to see it on Now TV any time soon. Until Batwoman airs on E4, the best way to catch the show in the UK is through using a VPN on The CW website.
