How to watch Blindspot season 5 from outside your country

Blindspot returns to TV at a time when you're probably stuck at home. Whatever the case may be, if you're looking to get stuck in and find yourself abroad during lockdown, pesky geo-blocking restrictions may stop your normal streaming service being shown where you are.

Fortunately, there's an easy solution. Downloading a VPN will allow you to watch Blindspot no matter where you are. This simple bit of software changes your IP address so that you can access episodes live or on demand as they become available, just as if you were lying on the couch at home.

While there are hundreds of VPNs to choose from, we always recommend ExpressVPN. As well as being fast, simple, and straightforward to install, it's also compatible with a whole host of devices - Amazon Fire TV Stick, Apple TV, Xbox, PlayStation, iOS and Android to name some of the main ones.

Plus, ExpressVPN's flexible 30-day money back guarantee is difficult to argue with. Even better, you can purchase an annual plan for a 49% discount and 3 months extra FREE – a brilliant offer for an essential bit of software.

Once installed, select the location of your home country and simply click connect. You’ll then be able to easily watch the Blindspot season finale from pretty much anywhere in the world.

Blindspot season 5: UK release date and how to watch

Sky Witness

Blindspot season 5's UK release has been confirmed, but only a "summer 2020" time-frame has been given. When it does air, it'll almost certainly do so on Sky Witness as with previous runs of the show.

In the meantime, seasons 2 and 3 of Blindspot are currently available on-demand with Sky and its streaming-only sibling, Now TV, whose Entertainment Pass provides great value for money at just £5.99 a month - it even offers a FREE 7-day trial so you can check out its full catalogue of great shows.

If you're from abroad and these options don't appeal to you, just remember you can grab a VPN as mentioned above and tune in to whatever streaming service you normally use and pay for back home.

How to watch Blindspot in Canada: stream the season 5 and series finale

CTV website,

Blindspot airs Thursday nights on CTV in Canada at the same as it does in the US - so 9pm ET/8pm MT. That means you can stream it on the CTV website, but you'll need cable as you have to register with details of your TV provider.

Sadly, Blindspot season 5 isn't on any Canadian streaming platforms. Crave offers seasons 1-4 of Blindspot and a FREE 30-day trial, but that's about it unless you want to buy the latest episodes - in which case you can head to iTunes where all of season 5 costs CA$24.99 and will include the series finale once it's aired in the US.

Canadians abroad wanting to watch the services they subscribe to back home could do worse than considering getting a VPN, which is an easy way to get around geo-blocking.
