Good Omens season 2

Good Omens season 2 will premiere on Friday, July 28. In fact, all six episodes of season 2 will be released on the same day, the first of which is titled “The Arrival“. Going on vacation when it premieres? Don’t panic! We’ll explain how you can stream Good Omens season 2 online, even if you’re traveling abroad.

It’s important to note that we’re only recommending official sources for watching Good Omens season 2 online. Good Omens is a popular show with an all-star cast, so it’s only natural that unlicensed streams pop up. That said, these usually have low-quality video and given that they’re frequently taken offline for copyright violation, they’re inherently unreliable. Besides, there’s no need to use shady, unofficial streams since you can watch every episode of Good Omens season 2 online.

Good Omens season 2 is only available on geo-restricted streaming services. If you’re traveling abroad to a location with no official broadcaster, you’ll have to use a VPN to connect to your home streaming services and watch Good Omens season 2 online.

How to watch Good Omens season 2 online from anywhere

So how can you access a region-locked service abroad? Simply, these platforms rely on the user’s IP address to determine their location, so when you use a VPN, they assume you’re in whichever country your chosen server is in. Confused? Follow our quick and easy guide to setting up a VPN.

Here’s how to watch Good Omens season 2 online from anywhere:

  1. First, sign up for a VPN if you haven’t already. We recommend NordVPN but Surfshark and ExpressVPN are both great, low-cost alternatives.
  2. Now, download and install the appropriate version of the app for your device.
  3. Decide which streaming service you’d like to use. If you have to create an account, now is the time to do so (note that BBC iPlayer asks for a postal code, but any will work).
  4. Connect to one of your VPN’s servers in the required country. For example, you’d need an American server to use Amazon Prime Video US or a British  British one to unblock BBC iPlayer.
  5. Play a video on your chosen streaming service. In most cases, it should play flawlessly, but if not, you can fix many problems by clearing your cookies and refreshing the page.

Good Omens season 2 will be broadcast live, which means it’s important you ensure your VPN works properly ahead of time. This way, you’ll have time to get help from your VPN’s support team in case of any issues, and shouldn’t have to miss any of this critically-acclaimed series.

Although Good Omens season 2 is coming to Amazon Prime Video first, it will also be coming to BBC iPlayer at some point. This was the case with season 1 although there was a fairly length gap of more than six months between the show’s release on both platforms. As yet, no BBC iPlayer premiere date has been announced though we can only hope the wait won’t be quite as long this time around.

Of course, the good news is that BBC iPlayer allows you to watch Good Omens season 2 online for free. British legislation says that you must have a TV license to watch anything (whether live or on-demand) on BBC iPlayer. However, while the service asks users if they have one or not, it doesn’t actually verify their answer and doesn’t ask users to enter a TV license number.

BBC iPlayer is region-locked and can usually only be accessed from within the UK. However, if you’re abroad, you can simply connect to a British VPN server and watch as normal.
