Whether you are living, travelling or on holiday, the ability to watch your favourite ITV programmes from America just makes your life that little bit better.

Unfortunately this is not possible for most people as you need to be based in England, Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland to do so because the ITV servers will read your US IP address and deny you access.

However there are options available to allow you to mimic your location from America to the UK.


Follow these steps to stream ITV Hub in the USA:

  1. Use Chrome Browser
  2. Install Beebs
  3. Go to ITV Hub

Be sure to check out our guide if you get stuck at any stage registering your account with ITV Hub. As we mentioned before, the Beebs browser add-on permits subscribers with the opportunity to check out whatever they want on the other British streaming services.

One click and your connection will be diverted to the UK meaning you can enjoy watching the ITV Hub player from America in seconds.


So, how can you access the ITV Player from America?

1) VPN (Virtual Private Network)

One of the commonest methods is downloading VPN software. Once installed the VPN will redirect your internet traffic so it will appear that you are in the UK and not watching ITV from America. One common complaint about VPNs is that they slow down your computer and internet connection.

2) Proxy Server

A lighter way to enjoy ITV is by using a proxy server. This will also redirect your internet connection. Although lighter, they are less secure than other methods and take some technical knowledge to install and maintain.

3) Beebs - a Google Chrome Extension

The third option is based on a proxy server but is easier to use. A Google Chrome Extension, once installed will give you easy access to ITV (and more importantly the ITV Hub catch-up player) from America. However, you will need to have the Google Chrome browser installed.
