The Graham Norton Show Season 28 will premiere on Friday, October 2, at 10:45 PM BST (5:45 PM EST / 2:45 PM PST). The new season will see a return to the chat show studio after Norton presented the previous season from his home during the coronavirus lockdown. Note that if you’re traveling abroad (outside the UK), you’re going to need a VPN to watch The Graham Norton Show Season 28 online. That’s because the service it’s airing on is geo-blocked.
Please note that we’re only recommending official sources for watching The Graham Norton Show Season 28. In our experience, unlicensed streams are far too unreliable with many being taken offline for copyright infringement. Other issues include poor picture quality and performance with low-resolution video, buffering, and lag. Fortunately, you can live stream The Graham Norton Show Season 28 for free, which means you don’t need to resort to unofficial sources.
The Graham Norton Show Season 28 will only be shown on region-locked platforms. As such, a VPN is required to continue watching on your usual home streaming services while traveling abroad.
How to watch The Graham Norton Show season 28 online free
A VPN is a service that lets you connect to a server in another location. For example, you can be in the US but connect to a server in the UK to get a British IP address. This makes it appear as if you’re located in the UK, allowing you to unblock geo-restricted websites and services such as BBC iPlayer. Another advantage is that your connection is encrypted, securing you from hackers and snoopers and letting you browse anonymously.
Here’s how to watch The Graham Norton Show Season 28 online free from anywhere:
- Sign up with a reputable VPN provider. We recommend ExpressVPN although NordVPN and Surfshark are two reliable, value-for-money alternatives.
- Download and install the appropriate VPN app for the device on which you plan to watch The Graham Norton Show online.
- Open the VPN app before connecting to a server in the UK. You’ll then have a UK IP address for unblocking BBC iPlayer.
- Go to the BBC iPlayer website or app and sign up for an account (it’s free). Note that you’ll need to provide a UK postcode (any UK postal code is accepted).
- Select a BBC iPlayer live stream which should now be unblocked. If not, you should clear your browser’s cache and cookies. Alternatively, contact your VPN’s support.
The Graham Norton Show season 28 will air live on BBC iPlayer. To avoid missing out, we recommend you test your VPN in advance. If you have any problems, you’ll then have enough time to contact your VPN’s customer support for further assistance.
How to watch The Graham Norton Show Season 28 on UK TV
You can watch The Graham Norton Show Season 28 for free on BBC iPlayer. To be able to live stream the show, you’ll need to sign up for a free BBC iPlayer account if you don’t have one already (if you do have one, all you need to do is log in). This requires you to provide the following personal information: email address, date of birth, country, and UK postcode. Any UK postal code is accepted — there’s no verification process.
Unfortunately, BBC iPlayer is only available to watch in the UK. If you’re traveling abroad, you’ll find content to be geo-blocked for reasons related to copyright and licensing. However, all you need to do is use a VPN. Simply connect to a VPN server in the UK and you’ll receive a UK IP address. This lets you watch BBC iPlayer online from anywhere. It’s worth knowing that ExpressVPN includes a 30-day money-back guarantee so you can try it out risk-free.
Where else can I watch The Graham Norton Show Season 28?
In the US, it’s possible to watch The Graham Norton Show season 28 on BBC America. Episodes will air each week from Friday, October 9 at 11 PM EST (8 PM PST). Note that this is one week after their initial broadcast on BBC One. Unlike BBC iPlayer, this service requires you to sign in with a cable TV provider. You’ll need to enter the same login details that you use with your cable TV (an email address or username and password).
If you don’t have a cable TV subscription, you may be interested to know that you can also watch cable-free. The BBC America channel is included with the following streaming services: FuboTV ($64.99 USD/month), Philo ($20/month), Sling TV ($30/month), and YouTube TV ($64.99/month). BBC America and the above streaming services are only available in the US. This means you’ll need a VPN and US IP address to watch abroad.
What can we expect from The Graham Norton Show Season 28?
While season 27 saw Graham Norton and guests recorded remotely from their homes due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we can expect a return to the studio in season 28. However, we won’t be seeing the famous red sofa; this is to be replaced by spaced-out chairs in an effort to follow COVID-19 guidelines. There will also be a smaller live studio audience to allow for social distancing. The new season is set to feature both in-studio and remote guests including Lolly Adefope, Rupert Everett, and Dolly Parton.
