Can you watch Coldplay: Our Glastonbury online in the US, Canada, Australia or the rest of the world?

Coldplay: Our Glastonbury will air exclusively on BBC Two and BBC iPlayer in the UK, with no known plans to broadcast the BBC documentary abroad. Unfortunately, that means countries like the US, Canada, and Australia will miss out, at least for now.

Brits currently away from home, however, can use a VPN to connect to their usual services and stream their favorite content, live or on-demand, no matter where they are.
