If you're out of the country or live abroad but still want to watch Peaky Blinders online, fret not, it's still possible. This is by using a VPN to get around the pesky geo-restrictions.

Which VPN is best for you? Our favourite option is ExpressVPN. And how do you use that to watch Peaky Blinders season 5? Read on to find out all you need to know.


1. Download and install a VPN
By using a VPN, you fool your laptop or mobile device (or your Roku, Amazon Fire TV Stick, Apple TV, games console, etc) into thinking it's in another country entirely. So even if you're in Spain, the US, Australia, anywhere, it will think it's back in the UK.

The reason we rate ExpressVPN so highly is because it's an absolute doddle to use. It also boasts fast connections and watertight security. You can try it with a 30-day money back guarantee, or go for a much better value annual plan where there's a massive 49% off and an extra 3 months free.

2. Connect to the appropriate server location
Simply open the VPN app, hit 'choose location' and select anywhere in the UK - it's super easy to do.

3. Go to
Once you've changed to an appropriate region, you simply need to go to and then voila! You can catch all of the Peaky Blinders action with the website's robust, legal streams.
