I am currently out traveling and would like to watch ITV live on the web tonight. Do you have the address of their live stream on the net where I can watch the show? Also, I have heard that many get error message and that the stream is only available from within the UK. Is that so? If yes, what can I do to fix the problem?
Thank you for the question! Your question is very good one and we believe many others have the same question as you have. In the bottom of the text you will find several links to things mentioned in this text, and there you will also find the link to the official live stream from ITV. This is not only for ITV 1, but there you can also watch ITV 2, ITV 3 and ITV 4. So you will find the link further down in the text.
Watch ITV live from outside the UK
IF you want to watch ITV from outside the UK that is a bit more challenging. It is not enough to visit the live feed for ITV, because they have a so called geoblock on their live feed. The geoblock means that the broadcast is only available for people inside a certain geographical area. In this case the geographical area is the UK. Thus only people with a UK ip address will be able to see the online stream from ITV. If you try to watch the live stream from outside the UK you will normally see the following error message.
If you see the above error message the solution to the problem is to get a UK ip address. That is not as hard as it sounds. HideMyAss is the name of a provider which have servers all around the world. Once you register with them you can download their software and with that software a VPN will be created. This connects you to a server in the UK (if you decide to connect to a server in the UK) and then you will at once get a UK IP address. Once you have this UK IP address you should restart your browser and go to the ITV live stream. This should now work perfect. Writing this article we have now started HideMyAss and connected to a server in London and we try the live stream again, and we get the following picture which is from the live stream showing Juventus play against Chelsea in the Champions League. As you understand this is a great way to see live football matches, X Factor, Britains Got Talent, Emmerdale, Coronation Street, This Morning, Benidorm, The Cube, Take me Out, Who Wants to be a Millionaire, Loose Women, Dancing on Ice, Lorraine, Countrywise Daybreak and other tv shows from ITV online from outside UK in an easy way.
Our friends in the Rome Guide have written a very similar article which deals with how to watch Rai Uno online from outside Italy. This works exactly the same way, which again means that if you use the HideMyAss software you can at any time watch Italian TV live when getting an Italian IP address. You can also watch lots of other broadcasts closed by geoblock in other nations, so great value for your money!
