How to Watch Love Island UK in the US and beyond: a global streaming guide (2024)

How to Watch Love Island UK in the US and beyond: a global streaming guide (1)

We're just a little over three weeks in and a lot of explosive drama has already taken place, so if you're feeling left out at the water cooler, you're probably wondering how to watch Love Island UK. This guide covers everything you need to know to stream the iconic reality show from anywhere on Earth. The new islanders landed in Mallorca earlier this month, and we've already seen quite a few singles get kicked off (including one surprising double-dumping) and one contestant who left the villa voluntarily. Suffice to say, things are sure to get even more dramatic (and cringe-y) as we head into week four.

Fans in the UK are lucky enough to watch the new episodes for free as they air on ITV2, while folks living elsewhere will need to wait until the new season is released on a streaming service or access the ITV Hub through a VPN service like ExpressVPN. New episodes began to be added to Hulu on June 21st, but the slow rollout means that US viewers will be a few weeks behind for the duration of the season.

The islanders featured this season include the overly confident business owner Davide Sanclimenti, Gemma Owen (the daughter of famous footballer Michael Owen), and — the show's first-ever deaf contestant — model and dancer Tasha Ghouri. Keep reading for a complete look at the lineup, plus more info and links to stream the dating show.

ExpressVPN | Try it risk-free for 30 days, then $6.67/month

If you're outside of the UK at the moment, you can get around geo-blocks and log into an ITV Hub account using a VPN. We called it the best VPN around so we obviously recommend ExpressVPN, but most options should be able to get the job done.A VPN service works by changing the location of your IP address so you can access all of your favorite sites, even when you're travelling.

ExpressVPN is also offering a 30-day trial that lets you try out the service with zero risk, all you need to do is install it, set your location to the UK, and log into an ITV Hub account.

Hulu |Starting at $6.99/month

New episodes began to be added to the Hulu streaming library on June 21st. Unfortunately, you only get one new episode a day, which means US viewers will always be a few weeks behind their friends in the UK.

If you don't want to miss out on all the new happenings, your best bet is still a VPN (see details above).

That being said, Hulu is home to loads of great content, such as the American version of Love Island and other reality shows like The Kardashians.

If you're thinking about signing up for Hulu, we'd also recommend looking into the Disney Bundle, which comes with access to Hulu, ESPN Plus, and Disney Plus for just $13.99/ month.
