Don’t worry if you don’t have any exciting plans this summer. You don’t need to be sunning yourself on a picture-perfect beach on an exotic vacation (or, holiday, as they’d say across the pond), surrounded by beautiful people all vying for your attention. You don’t need to leave the house to live that particular dream this summer, because Love Island UK is back on our screens.

If you want to watch Love Island UK for free from anywhere in the world, we’ve got all the information you need to catch the newest season.

When did Season 11 of Love Island UK premiere?

The eleventh season of Love Island UK started on June 3. Host Maya Jama is back to present the series, with Iain Stirling returning as narrator.

How to watch Love Island UK for free in the U.S.

The 11th series of Love Island UK is available to live stream for free on ITVX.

ITVX is geo-restricted to the UK, but you should be able to access this free streaming platform with a VPN. These tools can hide your real IP address (digital location) and connect to a secure server in the UK. This quick and easy process tricks streaming services like ITVX into providing you with access from anywhere in the world.

Got a Meta Quest? You'll have to re-enter your age.

This might sound complicated, but the process is actually really straightforward:

  1. Sign up to a VPN (like ExpressVPN or NordVPN)

  2. Download the app to your device of choice (the best VPNs have apps for Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, and more)

  3. Open up the app and connect to a server in the UK

  4. Visit ITVX

  5. Watch Love Island UK for free from anywhere in the world

The best VPNs for streaming are not free, but they do tend to offer money-back guarantees. By using these guarantees, you can unblock ITVX without fully committing with your cash. That means you can sign up to a streaming-friendly VPN and unblock ITVX to watch Love Island UK from anywhere in the world. If this process doesn’t work for some reason, you can recover your money.

What is the best VPN for ITVX?

Of the VPNs we’ve tested and recommend, only two consistently unblocked ITVX and other geo-restricted apps when connected to a UK-based server: NordVPN and ExpressVPN. So, make note: not all VPNs are created equal. Here are the details on our top picks.

Best streaming VPN: ExpressVPN

ExpressVPN is the one of our top choices for unblocking free streaming sites, for a number of reasons:

  • Servers in 105 countries including the UK

  • Easy-to-use app available on all major devices including iPhone, Android, Windows, Mac, and more

  • Strict no-logging policy

  • Fast streaming speeds free from throttling

  • Up to eight simultaneous connections

Best premium VPN: NordVPN

Probably one of the most well-known VPNs on the market, NordVPN is our top premium pick for a few reasons: its unrivaled suite of security features, more than 5,000 obfuscated servers, and a sweet deal on a 27-month plan. You’ll be able to unlock ITVX (and plenty of other geo-blocked websites and apps) and watch Season 11 Love Island UK episodes live when they air. While NordVPN still has some lingering transparency concerns, it’s made great strides to repair its reputation with boosted security standards, a bug bounty program, and network upgrades.

The Basic plan will only cost you $3.09 per month, the Plus plan goes for $3.99 per month, and the Ultimate plan will run you $5.99 per month.

Other ways to watch Love Island UK in the U.S.

If the VPN workaround seems too complicated or you don’t feel like signing up for a VPN subscription, you can also stream Love Island UK on Hulu in the U.S. starting June 8. Of course, the episodes won’t air live as they do on ITVX, but you’ll still be able to watch the drama unfold on your own time. Episodes will appear on Hulu a week after they air on ITVX, so you’ll just have to avoid spoilers in the mean time.
