How to watch 90 Day Fiancé - Self-Quarantined abroad

90 Day Fiancé: Self-Quarantined is set to premiere April 20 at 6 PM PST / 9 PM EST. There’ll be five episodes at first, although Howard Lee, president of TLC has claimed it’ll be a limited series initially, with potential for a return based on its popularity. Below, we’ll explain how you can watch 90 Day Fiancé live and on-demand online from any location.

It’s important to note that we’ll only be recommending official sources. These days, most popular TV shows have unauthorized live streams. However, these are notoriously unreliable, usually only available at low resolutions, and have the potential to be taken offline at a moment’s notice. Since you can watch 90 Day Fiancé: Self-Quarantined for free anyway, there’s nothing to be gained by using unlicensed streams.

How to access 90 Day Fiancé from abroad with a VPN

Don’t worry, bypassing regional restrictions is easy with a VPN. Just follow the steps below to unblock and stream 90 Day Fiancé abroad:

  1. First, register with a suitable VPN service. We’ve already mentioned ExpressVPN but NordVPN and CyberGhost are strong, low-cost alternatives.
  2. Download and install the VPN app. There will be several different versions, so make sure you get the right one for your operating system.
  3. Decide which of the sources below you’d like to use.
  4. Connect to one of your VPN’s servers in the appropriate location. For instance, you’d need a US server to unblock TLC or a UK server to watch on TVPlayer.
  5. Try streaming video from your chosen site. It should load almost immediately, although you may have to refresh the page or restart your browser first.

To make sure you don’t miss anything, we recommend performing the steps above before 90 Day Fiancé actually airs. By checking ahead of time, you leave plenty of time to get help from your VPN’s customer support team should anything not work as expected.

How to watch 90 Day Fiancé on US TV

USA flag

90 Day Fiancé: Self-Quarantined will premiere on TLC. If you have a cable TV subscription, you can sign in and watch live at no added cost. Further, new episodes will be added to the service’s on-demand catalog shortly after airing. Users can also stream several seasons of 90 Day Fiancé as well as its spinoffs.

Don’t have cable? No problem: you can just sign in with one of the supported over-the-top services instead. These include AT&T TV Now, fuboTV, Hulu, and YouTube TV, all of which offer a free trial period. At $5.99 USD per month, Hulu is the least expensive way to watch once your trial ends.

All of the services above are region-locked, which means you’ll need a VPN to access them from outside of the US. ExpressVPN comes with a risk-free 30-day money-back guarantee, allowing you to stream 90 Day Fiancé from abroad.

Where else can I stream 90 Day Fiancé online?

As you might expect, 90 Day Fiancé has a strong international audience. Despite this, the most recent spinoff won’t be shown outside of North America. Below, we’ll explain how you can watch other seasons of 90 Day Fiancé from anywhere in the world.

At the moment, there are no details on when British fans will be able to stream 90 Day Fiancé: Self-Quarantined. However, TLC UK is currently airing season 4 of Happily Ever After and season 5 of Before the 90 Days.

If you have a cable TV subscription, watching 90 Day Fiancé is easy. Sky customers simply have to log in to the Sky Go app to stream TLC (Channel 140) online. Virgin and BT customers can do the same, using the Virgin TV Go and BT TV apps, respectively.

Don’t worry: if you don’t have cable, or are with a provider that doesn’t offer TLC, you can watch on TVPlayer. That said, TLC isn’t one of the free channels, so you’ll have to subscribe. This is free for the first month, then £6.99 every month thereafter. You should note that TVPlayer is region-locked, though, so you’ll have to be within the UK or using a British VPN server in order to watch.

In Australia, there’s no broadcaster as yet. That said, TLC is currently showing season 7 of the main series, and if you’re a Foxtel subscriber, you can stream it anywhere using the Foxtel Go app. Not a Foxtel customer? In that case, you can gain access by signing up to Foxtel Now for $25 AUD per month.

Other locations

If you live somewhere without an official 90 Day Fiancé broadcaster, you may have to purchase prior seasons individually. The good news is that this show is easy to find on international platforms like Amazon and iTunes.

Remember: if you’re currently abroad on vacation, you can still access streams from your home country by connecting to a VPN.

Can I stream 90 Day Fiancé with a free VPN?

Although you might be tempted to try streaming 90 Day Fiancé with a free VPN, we strongly advise against it. Firstly, these services are constantly inundated with users and their networks usually aren’t large enough to spread the load. This means you’ll experience long loading times, frequent pauses for buffering, and possibly even random disconnection from the VPN. Plus, most free VPNs are blocked by popular streaming platforms, so you may not be able to watch anything anyway.

Free VPNs don’t cost money, but they’re not entirely free, either: you just pay with your personal information instead of cash. Whether they’re monitoring your interests by inserting ads or using tracking cookies to track you from one site to another, free VPNs can gather a huge amount of information about the way you use the internet. This can then be used to build a detailed consumer profile and sold to third parties later,  without your knowledge.

Finally, it’s hard to tell the legitimate free VPNs from those just trying to infect your system with malware. A 2015 paper revealed that of 283 free VPN apps surveyed, almost 40% included malware, 18% used no encryption at all, and over 80% were vulnerable to IPv6 leaks. The risks don’t disappear with larger, better-known companies, either; we’ve seen a major player in this industry sell its users’ idle bandwidth to help run a botnet.

The best way to protect yourself and your personal information online is to use a well-established VPN with a transparent customer privacy policy.
