How to watch Peaky Blinders season 5, episode 3 from any other location:  

Unfortunately, BBC One is currently the only channel airing the episodes, so for anyone who's abroad when the episode airs you’ll have to cybershift and virtually transport yourselves into the United Kingdom. Does this seem impossible? Of course it isn’t, with a VPN you can go anywhere - even to Birmingham 1919, where the Peaky Blinders crew are exchanging whiskey for fist-fights.  

Now comes the difficult question: which VPN is the perfect one for you? Our current top pick is ExpressVPN, as the best all-round VPN, in terms of speed, security and the abundant amount of locations to choose from. As you'll see, it's top of the pile in our list of the best VPN providers.

And best of's really easy to use. So, let’s run the steps down for you nice and easy:

1. Download and install a VPN
With a VPN, you can cybershift (through your IP address) to one of hundreds of different locations and therefore access domestic television channels that you wouldn't ordinarily be able to when overseas.

We highly recommend ExpressVPN as it has a very high level of security, is accessible via loads of different streaming devices, mobiles and consoles and is commitment free with a 30-day money back guarantee. That said you can get 49% off and an extra 3 months free if you go for an annual plan.

2. Connect to the appropriate server location
Got your VPN? Fantastic, now you need to choose and change your IP address to the UK. Don’t forget, this is 9pm BST so make sure to schedule this accordingly to your time zone. 

3. Go to
Now that you have changed your location, open up and you are set to watch your beloved gangsters get up to no good on a fast, reliable site.
