It’s important to know that Inside No. 9 season 5 will only be shown on region-locked platforms. To watch it on your usual services while abroad (outside the UK), you’ll need to use a VPN.

How to watch Inside No. 9 season 5 online with a VPN

Content on most streaming services is geo-blocked due to rights restrictions. These platforms use your IP address to identify your location. By using a VPN, you can make it look as if you’re browsing another country. This allows you to unblock geo-restricted content such as Inside No. 9. Below you’ll find a simple step-by-step guide on how to do this.

Here’s how to live stream Inside No 9 season 5 online free from anywhere:

  1. The first step is to sign up for a VPN. We recommend ExpressVPN although CyberGhost and NordVPN are two excellent value for money alternatives.
  2. Next, download and install the appropriate VPN app for your device. The best VPNs also offer browser extensions for Chrome and Firefox.
  3. Open the VPN app and connect to a server in the UK. Having a UK IP address allows you to unblock BBC iPlayer abroad.
  4. Create a BBC iPlayer account (it’s free). Aside from some basic personal details, you’ll be asked to provide a UK postcode. Fortunately, any UK postal code will do.
  5. Try playing a video on BBC iPlayer. The content should play without issue. If it’s still restricted, try clearing your browser’s cache and cookies.

Inside No. 9 season 5 episodes will be broadcast live. That’s why we recommend you test your VPN with BBC iPlayer in advance. If you encounter any issues, you’ll then have plenty of time to contact your VPN’s customer support and avoid missing out as a result.
