Published by on November 3, 2018 in TV Streaming

If you’ve been waiting to see more of Claire and Jamie Frazer’s adventures, you may be wondering how to watch Outlander Season 4 online. This article will discuss how to live stream Outlander in the US, Canada, UK, Australia, and other countries. It will also discuss how to watch Outlander if you are traveling abroad and which are the best VPNs for streaming Outlander.

Outlander on STARZ

If you have a US credit card, subscribing to STARZ direct is the least expensive and simplest way to get access to new Outlander episodes. If you are traveling outside the US, the best VPN to use is ExpressVPN. For users that cannot obtain a STARZ subscription, W Network, Amazon Prime, and the Watch Foxtel app and website are options where available.

Outlander Season 4 will premiere November 4 at 8 p.m. EST in the US on STARZ. It will have 13 episodes.

This article will only cover official sources. Although there will probably be websites that carry pirated streams of Outlander, they may contain malware or have other security problems. In addition, unofficial streams often have low resolution or are prone to buffering and crashing. We do not recommend using unofficial sources to stream Outlander.

Best VPN for Outlander: Express VPN

While there are many official options for streaming Outlander online, all of them block users who are located outside of particular countries. For example, STARZ direct is only available in the US and W Network is only available in Canada. If you subscribe to one of these networks and then travel outside of the country it is located in, you will be unable to watch Outlander.

The solution to this problem is to use a VPN to hide your IP address. This will allow you to enjoy Outlander episodes throughout the world. A VPN will also help to protect you against man-in-the-middle attacks, ISP snooping, ISP speed throttling, and other violations of privacy.

The best VPN for fans of Outlander and others STARZ programming is ExpressVPN. It keeps no logs, has servers in over 90 countries, and has a proven track record of getting around geoblocks from Starz.com, Netflix, Hulu, and other streaming services.

How to watch Outlander Season 4 online

STARZ has licensed Outlander to different streaming services in different countries. Here is where to watch Outlander in the US, Canada, UK, and Australia.

United States

Outlander in the US

If you have a credit or debit card that was issued in the US, the easiest way to watch new episodes of Outlander is by connecting to the official website of STARZ. The STARZ stand-alone streaming service is available for $8.99/month with a 7-day free trial.

Some over-the-top TV services also offer STARZ as an addon channel. If you already have one of these services, you may want to add STARZ to it instead of getting STARZ direct. Here are a few popular TV providers that offer STARZ:

If you have a cable or satellite service, you can watch Outlander on STARZ.com using your service’s login credentials.

Canada

Outlander on W

In Canada, Outlander is available on W Network. Each new episode airs at 10 p.m. EST, one hour after it finishes airing in the US. To watch online, navigate to the official W website and log in with your TV provider. W hasn’t said what day or time each episode will be posted to the website. But the usual practice for most networks is to post new episodes either the night they air or the day afterward.

UK

In the UK, new Outlander episodes are available the day after they air through Amazon Prime. UK residents can sign up to Amazon Prime Video at a cost of £7.99/month, with a 30-day free trial. If you don’t want to subscribe to Prime, another option is to rent Outlander episodes the day after they air for £2.49 a piece.

Australia

Outlander in Australia

In Australia, Outlander is broadcast on Foxtel every Monday at 12 p.m. AEDT, beginning with the premiere on November 5. New episodes can be viewed online through the Watch Foxtel app and website. A Foxtel subscription costs $30 AUD/month for the least expensive option.

How to stream Outlander abroad with a VPN

You’ll need to have a payment method located in the country where you plan to view Outlander. For example, you will need a US credit card to subscribe to STARZ direct and an Australian credit card to subscribe to Foxtel.

If you travel outside of your country’s borders, you will run into a problem. The service you paid for will be in one country, while you will be accessing the Internet from another country where that service is blocked.

You can solve this problem by using a VPN to hide your IP address. Here is how to stream Outlander and other programs abroad with a VPN:

  • Decide on which VPN provider to use. We recommend ExpressVPN, but NordVPN and Cyberghost are also good choices
  • Navigate to the VPN provider’s website and install the software
  • When the software loads, select a server from within the country of the service you are subscribed to. For example, if you have a subscription to Foxtel, select an Australian server. If you have a subscription to STARZ, select a US server
  • Connect to your service’s website and click on the episode you want to watch

Can I stream Outlander with a free VPN?

Instead of charging a subscription fee, free VPNs record data about what customers are doing online. They then sell this information to advertisers. This practice raises concerns about privacy.

Free VPNs also have data limits that are usually too low to allow for streaming video. And they have thousands of users trying to connect to poor infrastructure that is hardly ever upgraded. Their limitations and privacy concerns make them a very poor option for most activities, even web browsing.

We only recommend VPNs that have high speeds and robust privacy protections. Unfortunately, no free VPNs that we know of currently fit that description. However, many excellent VPNs offer subscriptions as low as $3-$7 per month if you sign up for a long enough term. Here is a list with more information.

What is Outlander?

Outlander is a TV drama based on the series of books by Diana Gabaldon with the same name. It was developed by Ronald D. Moore (Star Trek: The Next Generation, Battlestar Galactica, Helix). It stars Catriona Balfe as Claire Randall (later Claire Fraser) who finds herself transported back in time after visiting Craigh na Dun. She ends up in the 18th century, where she meets some Scottish highlanders being chased by British troops.

Claire falls in love with one of the highlanders named James Frazer. In the process, she gets caught up in the Jacobite rebellion as it spreads into France. Fans of Outlander love the way it weaves historical facts into the plot of the story. There is information about the Scottish-British wars of the 1700’s, the Jacobite rebellion in France, and many other events in European history. They also enjoy the complex plot twists, gory action scenes, and strong characters of the series.

If you want to catch up on the previous seasons before watching the new one, the entire series is available on the STARZ app and website in the US and Amazon Prime in the UK.

    • Hi Nicole,

      My understanding is that you will not be able to watch content on the Starz app without a US credit card, even if you have a VPN. If you lived in the U.S. and were visiting Canada, a VPN would allow you to get around the geoblock and access Starz.com. But if you don’t have a US credit card, there is no way to sign up for Starz.

      Now that the season has started, it also looks to me like the TV providers in Canada are banning subscribers from watching Outlander online. Or at least, I don’t see the first episode posted to the W Network website. If you live in Canada and are experiencing this problem, please let us know so that we can edit the article to warn readers about it.
