Arrow Season 6 ended with Green Arrow locked up in a supermax prison. What is going to happen in Arrow Season 7? If you’ve been waiting to see Arrow’s new season, you may have been wondering how you can live stream it online. The best way to watch Arrow online for free is through The CW website or the CW app. For those outside of the US in countries such as Canada, the UK, Jamaica, Australia, or anywhere else abroad, The CW is geographically blocked. The best VPN to get around this block is ExpressVPN.
There are numerous other options to watch Arrow Season 7 online, whether you live in the U.S. or elsewhere.
Arrow is produced by The CW, a free, over-the-air TV network in the U.S. But if you are located outside of the U.S. and do not have a VPN, you may find it difficult to locate a website that doesn’t block you from streaming Arrow. You may have to pay for a premium TV subscription or even wait up to a week to see the newest episode of Arrow.
If you live in the U.S., you will have more options for streaming the new season of Arrow. However, your ISP may still throttle your Internet speed and cause buffering while you are watching the show.
The best way to safely and privately stream Arrow and other popular shows, whether inside or outside the U.S., is to use a VPN whenever you are connected to the Internet. A VPN will hide your IP address, making it virtually impossible for websites to know where you are located. This will help circumvent geoblocks placed on users outside of the U.S. In addition, it will encrypt your data, preventing your ISP from knowing that you are watching TV online without paying for a cable TV subscription.
We recommend Express VPN. It has servers in over 90 countries, allowing you to connect from nearly anywhere. We have also found it to be one of the fastest and most secure VPNs on the market.
If you live outside of the U.S. and don’t have either a TV provider or Playon Cloud subscription, you can still watch new Arrow episodes on-demand by using a VPN to hide your IP address from The CW. New episodes of Arrow are posted each week at 11 p.m. on Monday night, Eastern Standard Time, two hours after they finish airing on broadcast television.
It only takes a minute to sign up. Simply choose a subscription length (one, six, or twelve months) and pay via your chosen method. ExpressVPN comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee, so you can get a full refund if it doesn’t meet your expectations. For example, if you’re on holiday for less than 30 days, you can watch Arrow from abroad while trialing the service for free.
THREE MONTHS FREE: Choose ExpressVPN’s annual plan to save 49% and get an extra three months absolutely free.
How to watch Arrow Season 7 online
Depending on which country you are located in, you will have different options for watching Arrow Season 7. Here is how to watch in the U.S., U.K., Australia, Canada, or Jamaica. In the next section, we’ll explain how to use a VPN to watch Arrow from anywhere in the world.
Arrow Season 7 in the U.S.
If you are located in the U.S., watching Arrow Season 7 online is fairly simple. Arrow is broadcast on The CW, which is available live on USTVNow.com in standard definition. To sign up for USTVNow, you will need to provide a name and email address. The first episode of the new season will air on Monday, October 15 at 8 p.m. EST.
If you miss the episode when it first airs, it will be available to stream in HD on-demand beginning at 11 p.m. on CWTV.com. There is no login requirement to watch shows on CWTV.com.
The CW is also available through a number of “skinny bundle” internet TV streaming services. These services typically offer 30-100 channels for anywhere from $15 to $100 per month, depending on the service and the package selected. Not every streaming service provides access to The CW. However, the following options do carry The CW:
Additionally, if you want to watch older episodes of Arrow (Seasons 1-6), you may want to get a Netflix subscription (if you don’t already have one). The CW only carries the five most recent episodes online for free, but Netflix has every episode from the previous seasons.
How to watch Arrow online with a VPN
If you’re outside the U.S. Here’s how to access episodes of Arrow with a VPN.
- Choose the VPN service you want to use. We recommend Express VPN, but NordVPN and CyberGhost are also good choices.
- Download the VPN software for your particular operating system.
- When the software opens, choose a server located within the United States. After a few seconds, you should receive a message saying that you are now connected to a U.S. server.
- Go to a website such as whatsmyipaddress.com to verify that your IP address is showing up as a U.S. address.
- Open a browser and navigate to CWTV.com.
- Click on the new episode of Arrow or any other video you want to see. Error messages should disappear and the episode should begin playing.
How to watch international versions of Arrow online
Arrow Season 7 in the U.K.
If you are located in the U.K., you will be blocked from accessing streams on CWTV.com. You will also be blocked from most U.S.-based streaming services. However, you can still watch the entire season live in standard definition on USTVNow.com. USTVNow is a service aimed at American military stationed overseas, so it generally does not block its programming from residents of other countries.
If you do not manage to watch the first episode when it airs in the U.S., you will have to wait until Tuesday, October 23 to watch it on Sky One, and then only if you pay at least £22.50 for a premium subscription.
You can also use PlayOn Cloud to download episodes from The CW. As PlayOn explains, their servers are located in the US, so you can download full episodes from The CW and play them back in any location. The cost for PlayOn Cloud is $23.88/year.
Arrow Season 7 in Australia
If you are located in Australia, you face a situation similar to that of U.K. residents. CWTV.com will block you from watching episodes of Arrow on-demand. However, you can still watch the first episode live in standard definition on USTVNow.com for free. Foxtel 8 is also broadcasting it in high-def at the same time that it airs in the U.S. (October 16, 10 a.m. AEDT). A subscription to Foxtel 8 costs $49 AUD/month.
PlayOn Cloud will also work in Australia to download recent episodes of Arrow Season 7 from The CW.
If you are located in Canada, you can watch episodes of Arrow Season 7 live on USTVnow for free. Arrow is also available in Canada on Space GO, although a TV provider login is required to use this method. As is the case with users located in other countries, PlayOn Cloud can be used from within Canada to download episodes from CWTV.com.
If you want to watch older episodes of Arrow in Canada, you can use CraveTV, which also has a large number of other US TV shows.
As far as we can tell, Arrow is not being broadcast on any channel in Jamaica. But if you are in Jamaica, you can still watch every episode of the new season using USTVnow or PlayOn Cloud. A VPN will also work to bypass the geographic content restrictions in place on The CW website so you can watch Arrow Season 7 episodes on-demand after they air.
Online streaming FAQ
Not quite sure how to use a VPN to stream online? Here are a few commonly-asked online streaming questions.
How can I use a VPN to unblock other streaming websites?
To unblock websites other than CWTV.com, connect to a VPN server from the country the website is located in. For example, if you want to watch the Swiss-based free streaming service at Zattoo.com, connect to a server in Switzerland. If you want to watch ABC channels from Australia, connect your VPN to an Australian server and navigate to ABC.net.au. The process is the same for any other streaming TV site.
What if I’m in the U.S.? Do I still need a VPN?
If you are located in the U.S., you do not need a VPN to watch HD episodes of Arrow on-demand from The CW’s official website. However, if you do not use a VPN, your ISP will know that you are streaming video without paying for cable or satellite TV. Although Arrow is a free show that is completely legal to watch online, ISPs can throttle the speed of video-streamers to save bandwidth on the network. A VPN will encrypt your data, preventing your ISP from knowing that you are streaming video. It will also help to protect against man-in-the-middle attacks by hackers.
Why can’t I watch Arrow even though I’m connected to a VPN?
If your VPN is running and you still get error messages from The CW’s official website, first make sure that you are connected to a U.S. server. If this still doesn’t fix the problem, try a different server within the U.S. The particular server you are using may have stopped working correctly.
If this still doesn’t fix the problem, contact your VPN’s customer service. Websites sometimes block known IP addresses of VPN servers. If this happens, the VPN service will need to change the IP addresses it uses, and U.S. sites may be temporarily unavailable in the meantime.
