Fortunately, we can show you how to unblock ABC and live stream The Good Doctor season 3 online even if you’re located abroad.

Please keep in mind that we’ll only be recommending official sources to watch The Good Doctor season 3. While you may be able to find an unauthorized stream of this popular TV show, there’s a risk that it will be taken down for copyright violation with no prior warning. This, combined with the low-resolution picture and poor performance, means you’re likely to have problems when trying to live stream The Good Doctor season 3 via unauthorized sources.

The Good Doctor season 3 is only available via geo-restricted services. For this reason, you’ll need a VPN in order to watch it abroad (outside the US).

In order to watch The Good Doctor season 3 on US TV or live online, you’ll need a cable TV subscription. However, it’s worth knowing that you can watch full episodes of The Good Doctor season 3 on ABC one week after they premiere with no need to sign in with a TV provider (sign-in is only required for watching live).

You can also live stream online via the following streaming servicesAT&T TV Now (from $50 USD/month), Hulu with Live TV ($44.99/month), Playstation Vue (from $49.99/month), and YouTube TV ($49.99/month). Additionally, while all of the above streaming services are paid options, they all offer free trials.

Whichever option you choose, you’ll need a VPN connection to a US server in order to stream The Good Doctor abroad. That’s because all of the above services have some geographic restrictions and require that you have a US IP address to watch online. ExpressVPN comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee so you can try it out risk-free.

How to watch The Good Doctor season 3 on UK TV

While The Good Doctor season 3 will premiere on ABC, it will also be coming to UK TV. It will air in October on Sky Witness (formerly known as Sky Living) and can be watched on traditional TV or live-streamed online via Sky Go. However, you’ll need a Sky TV subscription in order to use this service. If you’re outside the UK, you’ll also need a VPN.

You can also watch the Sky Witness channel via Now TV. This service offers various TV passes with no long-term commitment. For £8.99 per month, you can watch The Good Doctor season 3 through Now TV’s Entertainment Pass, and as a bonus, this can be canceled at any time.

Can I use a free VPN to watch The Good Doctor season 3?

We can’t promise that a free VPN will be able to unblock the likes of ABC and Sky Go. Indeed, free VPNs are notoriously unreliable when it comes to unblocking popular streaming services. Worse still, the slow server speeds and all-round poor performance (you’ll encounter lots of buffering and lag) contribute to a frustrating experience. This is particularly relevant when it comes to live streaming TV shows such as The Good Doctor.

Aside from allowing you to unblock geo-blocked websites and services, a quality VPN should also protect your privacy online. This is usually done through the use of encryption and a strict no-logs policy, both of which ensure your data is secure. Unfortunately, many free VPNs lack such important features. What’s more, some free VPNs even keep logs of your activity and sell your browsing data! Overall, they’re just not worth the risk.

What can we expect from The Good Doctor season 3?

Don’t worry, no spoilers have been leaked for The Good Doctor season 3 as yet! However, we can expect Shaun to face further workplace struggles at St. Bonaventure. Furthermore, his love life will be more prominent than ever (a romance-focused teaser trailer hinted as much), after he asked Carly out on a date in the season 2 finale. Season 3 is also likely to continue the romance between Dr. Melendez and Dr. Lim.

Which cast members will be returning for The Good Doctor season 3?

Fortunately, most cast members will be returning for The Good Doctor season 3. This includes Freddie Highmore (Dr. Shaun Murphy), Nicholas Gonzalez (Dr. Neil Melendez), Antonia Thomas (Dr. Claire Brown), Tamlyn Tomita (Allegra Aoki), Hill Harper (Dr. Marcus Andrews), and Richard Schiff (Dr. Aaron Glassman). Jasika Nicole (Dr. Carly Lever) is expected to return for season 3 as a regular character. However, Daniel Dae Kim (Dr. Jackson Han) is unlikely to be a recurring character in season 3.
