Can I watch Naked and Afraid XL Season 6 online in the UK?
As you'd expect, Discovery UK and Discovery DMAX are the regular homes for Naked and Afraid XL. However, there is no confirmed date for a season 6 broadcast, and with season 5 still yet to be shown in the UK, there may be a bit of a wait in store for fans of the show.
Anyone in the UK from abroad can grab a VPN as mentioned above, but note that many services require credit card or cable provider details to sign-up, so make sure to read the fine print and have whatever's required to hand for your convenience.
Can I watch Naked and Afraid XL Season 6 online in Australia?
Much the same as the UK, Discovery HD is the go to destination for Naked and Afraid XL Down Under, but there's no confirmed airing for the new series. With season 4 currently airing on the channel, you'll probably ble to watch the NRL live before season 6 drops Down Under.
Americans residents abroad in Australia desperate to keep up with the show do have an option, though - as mentioned above, a reliable VPN service offers all the comforts of your home streaming service, regardless of where you are on the planet.
