The Masked Singer season 9

Season 9 of The Masked Singer will premiere on Wednesday, February 15, at 20:00 ET (27:00 PT). The format’s a little different this time, with double unmaskings and a knockout round in every single episode. Below, we’ll explain how to live stream The Masked Singer season nine from anywhere, even abroad.

You should note that we’ll only be recommending official sources. While this is an extremely popular show, we don’t recommend using any third-party streams. For a start, they tend to be extremely laggy, with low-resolution video, and to make matters worse, they’re often taken offline for copyright violation. There are plenty of ways to watch The Masked Singer season 9 online anyway, so there’s no reason to resort to unreliable, unauthorized streams.

The Masked Singer will only air on region-locked streaming services. This means that if you’re currently outside of North America, you’ll need a VPN to access your usual home services.

How to live stream The Masked Singer abroad with a VPN

Usually, streaming services find the user’s location by checking their IP address. When using a VPN, though, only the server’s IP address is visible. This means that by connecting to a server in the required country, you can access region-locked services from abroad. Confused? Take a look at our step-by-step guide below.

Here’s how to watch The Masked Singer season 9 live online from anywhere:

  1. First, sign up for a suitable VPN if you haven’t already. We recommend NordVPN although Surfshark and ExpressVPN are two great low-cost alternatives.
  2. Download and install the VPN app. Most providers offer apps for a wide range of platforms, so this should be easy enough.
  3. Connect to a VPN server in the appropriate country. You’ll need a US server to unblock FOX, for instance, or a Canadian server to stream CTV abroad.
  4. Visit your chosen service and sign in (or create an account if one is needed). Note that you may need to have a payment method linked to an address in the required country.
  5. Lastly, log in and try playing a video. It should play immediately, but if not, clear your browser’s cookies and refresh the page.

The Masked Singer will air live each week, so we recommend spending a few minutes making sure your VPN works as expected ahead of time. This approach ensures you won’t be blindsided by technical problems at the last second since you’ll have more than enough time to get help from your VPN’s customer support team.

How to watch The Masked Singer season 9 on US TV

Season nine of The Masked Singer will air exclusively on FOX. With a cable TV subscription, you need only sign in using your cable provider details to watch.

All of the services above are region-locked, so you’ll need a VPN to access them from outside the US. Haven’t decided which one to use yet?

Can I stream The Masked Singer season 9 abroad?

The Masked Singer remains highly popular and has international versions in several countries. Read on to find out how you can watch The Masked Singer where you live:


How to watch The Masked Singer season 9 in Canada

In Canada, CTV will broadcast The Masked Singer season nine an hour after it’s shown in the US. Although you can watch the most recent episode for free without signing in, you’ll need a cable TV subscription to view the live stream or any episodes that are more than a week old.

CTV is only available in Canada. If you’re currently abroad, you can access it as normal by connecting to one of your VPN’s Canadian servers.


How to watch The Masked Singer season 9 in the UK

The American version of The Masked Singer isn’t actually being shown in the UK. Instead, there’s a British spinoff featuring Jonathan Ross as presenter and Davina McCall, Rita Ora, and Mo Gilligan as panelists. It has already been renewed for seasons 4 and 5 and you can stream it live and on-demand via ITVX, which is completely free to use (although you will have to create an account first).

This platform also offers the third, fourth, and fifth seasons of The Masked Singer US, but unfortunately, there’s no way to stream the rest of this show legally.

ITV Hub is geo-restricted, so you’ll have to either be in the UK or connected to a British VPN server to watch The Masked Singer UK.


How to watch The Masked Singer season 9 in Australia

Australia isn’t showing season nine of The Masked Singer either. However, there’s an Australian version which will be returning for its fifth season in 2023. It’s presented by Osher Günsberg while the panelists are Mel B, Dave Hughes, and Chrissie Swan.

The Masked Singer Australia is available to watch on 10play. Note that while you have to create an account to stream content, this is very straightforward and should only take a minute. 10play is region-locked, so if you’re outside of Australia, you won’t be able to watch without a VPN and Australian IP address.

What can we expect from season 9 of The Masked Singer?

The Masked Singer is switching things up again. While contestants will still be divided into three teams, they’re effectively competing in a group stage rather than a team fight. Whoever has the fewest votes will be eliminated outright, with the remaining two singers facing off in a sudden-death style elimination. Additionally, each judge can save a single contestant from elimination with the help of their “Ding Dong, Keep It On” bell.
Season nine sees Nick Cannon returns as host while Ken Jeong, Nicole Scherzinger, Jenny McCarthy-Wahlberg, and Robin Thicke are also back as panelists. Jennifer Nettles (of Sugarland fame) will be one of the guest panelists, with the Buffalo Bills’ safety Damar Hamlin making an appearance in some form as well.
