How to watch Capital’s Summertime Ball outside the UK

You can watch Capital’s Summertime Ball for free from the UK, but bear in mind that if you're traveling abroad, you won't be able to watch online or access ITVX as you would back home. 

However, don't be deterred by geo-restrictions which prevent certain services and content from being accessed outside of the UK. You can circumvent geo-blocks by using a VPN, or Virtual Private Network. 

It's completely legal, very affordable and easy to use – and it also encrypts your browsing, offering protection against cybercriminals and government snooping.
