WOW Presents Plus will be your ticket to drag heaven if you live in America, with the final episode of Drag Race UK season 2 available from at 12pm PST / 3pm EST – at exactly the same time as in the UK. New subscribers can enjoy a week-long free trial.

How to watch RuPaul's Drag Race UK season 2 online in Canada


Canadians…put the bass in your walk! Not only can you gag on all the eleganza extravaganza in sync with UK audiences, but you have two viewing options: Crave and OUTtv.

Cable viewers can watch every episode on Crave, or catch the finale of RuPaul's Drag Race UK season 2 at 8pm ET on OUTtv. And if you’ve cut that the cord, both broadcasters have OTT alternatives:

Crave's streaming service is CND$9.99 a month (plus tax) after your 7-day free trial, with the final episode of Drag Race UK dropping online on Thursday at 3.01pm ET. As well as HBO and Showtime programming and classic films, they’ve got RuPaul’s Drag Race season 13 (in addition to all prior seasons), All Stars, and season 1 of Canada’s Drag Race.

Alternatively, OUTtvGo will have the final episode of Drag Race UK just after its broadcast on OUTtv. It’s an online platform full of LGBTQ+ content, whose CND$3.99 monthly subscription is a bargain for fans of queer entertainment. An annual subscription is even cheaper in the long run for the one-off cost of CND$39.99.

If you’re adventure seeking abroad while Drag Race UK is released online, geo-blocks will prevent you from catching all the werkroom backstabbing and bonding. A VPN like ExpressVPN, however, will let you connect to your VoD service back home, and as detailed above, they’re currently offering 49% off.
