Love Island winter edition is about to start and you can stream every single episode (and watch the Winter Love Island final) online for free. Currently traveling? Don’t worry; below, we’ll also let you know how to watch Winter Love Island from abroad (outside of the UK).

Note that we’ll only be recommending official sources. While you can often find popular shows on unauthorized streaming sites, we strongly advise against using these. The video is usually very low-quality, and there’s always a chance that they’ll be taken down for copyright violation. You can live stream Love Island for free anyway, meaning there’s no need to use shady, unreliable sources.

Love Island is only available on region-locked services. This means that if you’re abroad and looking to watch on your usual services, you’ll need a VPN.

FAQs about watching Winter Love Island from abroad

Do I need a VPN if I’m in the UK?

While you can watch Love Island without a VPN from within the UK, we’d recommend using one anyway. Various Internet Service Providers (ISPs) have been known to reduce your internet speeds if they decide you’re streaming too much. A VPN hides your activities so this kind of restriction becomes more difficult for ISPs to justify. Further, VPNs prevent most types of Man-in-the-Middle attacks and greatly increase your online security.
