The Great British Bake Off (a.k.a. The Great British Baking Show) is back for its tenth season - with more soggy bottoms, collapsing cakes and innuendos. If you want to know more about the bakers, then take a look at all the GBBO contestants and news right here.
It’s currently airing every Tuesday at 8pm BST on Channel 4, and each episode is then syndicated on Netflix US for audiences in the states. However, if you’re not in either of these countries and want to be all caught up, this may be a little bit of a problem.
Fortunately, we’re able to help if you want to watch GBBO from another country. All you need is the assistance of one of our trusted VPNs, and an account on the official Channel 4 streaming platform, All 4.
If you're in the US then it's even easier, as you can just catch up on Netflix - as long as you don’t mind watching three days late each week, as it airs on Fridays. Alternatively, use a VPN for All 4 if you don't have Netflix or want to watch the same day as the UK to avoid spoilers.
Watch Bake Off with a VPN
By far the easiest way to watch Bake Off on All 4 from outside the UK is to use a VPN (or virtual private network) which allows you to browse the internet while appearing to be in a different country to where you actually are.
There are loads of VPNs out there, but our top recommendation is NordVPN, which we've found to be reliable, speedy, and pretty affordable. If you want to see what other options are out there, then take a look at our list of the best VPNs for streaming video.
If you’d rather save some money to pay for your pastries to eat over Bake Off, then you can download a free VPN from one of our recommendations. However, be warned that free VPNs have slower speeds, lower bandwidths and store your data, all things that paid VPNs do not do.
Once you have your chosen VPN, simply install it onto your device - most work on PC, Mac, iOS, Android, and more - and make sure to select a server in the UK before turning it on. Then head to the All 4 website or app, sign up for an account (it’s free, but requires your email), search for the Great British Bake Off, click on the latest season and watch away!
All 4 requires you to turn off any ad-blockers - which includes any optional ad-blocking in your VPN - so make sure you do that before trying to watch. If you still can't connect, try a different server within your VPN until you find one that works for you.
Please note that this is against All 4’s terms of service, so proceed at your own risk.
