Can I Use a VPN to Unblock BritBox from a Different Country?

Some BritBox viewers connect to a VPN server in the UK, the US, Canada, or Australia to watch from a different country. While we don't snoop on our users' online activity, this is against our terms of service and is not acceptable.

Rest assured that CyberGhost VPN never logs your browsing data and your activity is always private, but you should always comply with all relevant terms and applicable law, including copyright.

Why You Need a VPN for BritBox

Why You Need a VPN for BritBox

BritBox is only available in select countries, including the UK, US, Canada, and Australia. You may lose access to Britbox shows when you travel abroad — unless you take CyberGhost VPN with you.

Connect to a CyberGhost VPN server in your home country to relocate your IP address. This makes it look like you’re still in the country, so you can access your BritBox subscription from abroad. Watch the best of British TV wherever you go!

CyberGhost VPN encrypts your connection, so you can unblock BritBox on networks that restrict access to streaming platforms. No one will know what you’re watching — not your employer, school, or your ISP. CyberGhost’s encryption also protects you from snoops and cyber attacks when you use public Wi-Fi.

If you subscribe to BritBox through Amazon Prime Video, you can take advantage of CyberGhost’s streaming-optimized VPN servers. We check these daily to make sure you can always access your favorite shows.

Access VPN Servers in 100 Countries

However far from home you travel, you can always stream your favorite shows with CyberGhost VPN. We have industry-leading VPN servers in every country where BritBox is available. Connect to a server in your home country through the CyberGhost app. In just a couple of clicks, you can regain access to your BritBox subscription.

We closely manage our network, so you don’t have to worry about overcrowded servers ruining your streaming experience. Even if you’re connecting from the other side of the world, CyberGhost’s blazing-fast servers mean you can stream in UHD with no buffering!


Stream BritBox on Any Device

You don’t need to be in your living room to enjoy Downton Abbey or Doctor Who. Stream your favorite shows via the BritBox app on your laptop, tablet, or mobile. Connect to CyberGhost VPN to secure your connection and access BritBox on any network.

CyberGhost VPN has apps for Windows, macOS, Linux, Android, and iOS. You can even use it on multiple devices at once — a single account gives you up to 7 simultaneous connections. You don’t need to log in and out when switching devices, making it easy to stream on your commute or during your lunch break.

If you’re streaming at home, download the CyberGhost app for your Amazon Fire TV Stick or Android TV. Alternatively, set up CyberGhost VPN on your router to protect all your devices, including Smart TVs, Apple TV, and game consoles. If you have any questions about router configuration, contact our 24/7 Customer Support team.

Get Fast VPN Speeds for UHD Streaming

Get Fast VPN Speeds for UHD Streaming

If you want to stream BritBox without interruption on restricted networks or from abroad, you need a VPN with fast servers and lots of bandwidth. Not all VPNs can provide this. CyberGhost VPN can.

CyberGhost has 10-Gbps VPN servers in high-traffic locations, so you don’t have to worry about slowdowns or interruptions. All CyberGhost VPN servers provide unlimited bandwidth, so you can stream as much BritBox as you want. CyberGhost also uses top VPN protocols like WireGuard® to make sure you get the fastest connection possible.

Did you know your ISP can track everything you do online? It may use this information to restrict your connection speeds when you use streaming services like BritBox. If you’re experiencing lags and buffering, you may be a victim of content-based throttling.

CyberGhost VPN encrypts your internet traffic so your ISP can’t monitor your activity. If your ISP can’t see what you do online, it won’t throttle your connection when you access streaming sites. Get CyberGhost VPN and enjoy uninterrupted BritBox with no ISP slowdowns. Try it risk-free with a 45-day money-back guarantee.

Watch BritBox Securely on Public Wi-Fi

Watch BritBox Securely on Public Wi-Fi

Public Wi-Fi hotspots let you watch BritBox away from home without using mobile data, but they’re risky. Most public networks don’t even require a password. It’s easy for cybercriminals to intercept your traffic.

CyberGhost VPN keeps you safe. Turn on automatic Wi-Fi protection to secure your data with military-grade 256-bit AES encryption whenever you connect to a public hotspot. No cybercriminal can crack this code! CyberGhost also has a built-in Kill Switch that instantly blocks all traffic to and from your device if your VPN connection drops, to prevent data leaks.

Without a VPN your ISP, government, employer, and school network administrator can monitor what you’re streaming. Take control of your privacy and watch BritBox with CyberGhost VPN to keep your streaming activity to yourself.

CyberGhost VPN encrypts your traffic and masks your IP address to improve your online anonymity. An independent audit of CyberGhost’s No Logs policy confirmed we don’t collect, store, or share your online activity.

Your privacy is our priority! That’s why CyberGhost VPN is headquartered in privacy-friendly Romania — we’re not obligated to hand your data over to governments or other authorities.

Keep Your BritBox Streaming Activity Private

Keep Your BritBox Streaming Activity Private


Free VPNs aren’t a good choice for BritBox. They often have overcrowded server networks with slow speeds and limited bandwidth. You’ll probably have to deal with constant interruptions and buffering while you stream.

Instead, try CyberGhost VPN risk-free with a 45-day money-back guarantee. CyberGhost has some of the fastest VPN connection speeds in the industry and provides unlimited bandwidth. Our global server network includes blazing-fast VPN servers in every country where BritBox is available.

If you travel to another country where BritBox is available, you can watch the BritBox content available in that country. Depending on where you signed up, you may be able to view your home content library. Subscribers in Denmark, Finland, Norway, or Sweden can watch their home BritBox catalog in any EU country (even if BritBox isn’t available). US and Canadian subscribers can use their subscription in either region.

If you can’t access BritBox while you’re abroad, try CyberGhost VPN. Connect to a VPN server in your home country to change your IP address. This makes it look like you’re still in the country, so you can log into your BritBox account as normal.

BritBox UK has more content than BritBox US. You get access to more classic British TV and films, as well as original programs not available in the US. However, US BritBox also has some programs you won’t find on BritBox UK due to licensing agreements.

BritBox UK is now part of ITVX and is only available in the UK. You can access your BritBox US subscription in both the US and Canada, but the available content may vary. You may also find content is more restricted in the other countries where BritBox is available (Australia, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Norway, and South Africa).

BritBox is only available in the UK, US, Canada, Australia, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Norway, and South Africa. If you try to access BritBox from other countries, you may get an error message saying, “Unfortunately, BritBox is not currently available where you are.”

If you get this error message when traveling abroad, you can regain access to your BritBox account with a VPN. Connect to a CyberGhost VPN server from your home country. This relocates your digital connection, so you can continue to access BritBox from abroad.

BritBox gives you access to the largest collection of classic British boxsets, though it doesn’t always have the latest British shows. It’s the best streaming service for anglophiles and British expats, with content from ITV and BBC, as well as BritBox originals. Britbox UK also features Channel 4 and Channel 5 shows, plus exclusive original shows.

BBC iPlayer is the best place to stream recent BBC content, but you need to be a UK TV license payer to access it. ITV, Channel 4, and Channel 5 also have free streaming services for UK residents.

Acorn TV is a lesser-known streaming service with lots of great British TV shows. It’s available in dozens of countries across North America, South America, Europe, and Oceania. Netflix has a limited number of shows from several British networks — availability varies by region.

You can subscribe to BritBox on Amazon Prime Video in the US, Canada, Australia, and Sweden. You’ll get access to the same content as a regular BritBox subscription, but you can only watch via Amazon. You also need to make all account updates through Amazon, rather than via the BritBox website or app.

You can get a 7-day free trial when you sign up for BritBox. This lets you watch as many British TV shows and films as you can in those 7 days. You need to enter payment details at sign-up, so cancel before the trial ends if you don’t want to get charged.

You can stream BritBox on your computer, mobile device, streaming devices such as Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV Stick, and Android TV, and some Smart TVs. This gives you plenty of options for watching at home or on the move.

If you stream on unsecured public Wi-Fi networks, your device and BritBox account details could be at risk. It’s always best to use a VPN to prevent others from snooping on your activity or stealing your data. CyberGhost VPN has native apps for Windows, macOS, Linux, Android, and iOS, so wherever you travel, you can stream BritBox privately and securely.
