How to watch 'Love Island USA' season 6 from anywhere with a VPN

So what if you're traveling outside your home country and want to enjoy the show or want an added layer of privacy for streaming? There is an option that doesn't require searching the internet for a sketchy website: You can use a VPN, or virtual private network.

With a VPN, you're able to virtually change your location on your phone, tablet or laptop to get access to the show. If you find yourself unable to watch locally, a VPN can come in handy. Plus, it's a great idea for when you're traveling and find yourself connected to a Wi-Fi network and want to add an extra layer of privacy for your devices and logins.

Most VPNs, like CNET's Editors' Choice, ExpressVPN, make it easy to virtually change your location. Looking for other options? Be sure to check out some of the other great VPN deals.

A Crave subscription currently starts at CA$10 per month for its basic tier (720p video, with ads) and rises up to $22 per month for its premium tier (ad-free, 4K resolution streams with downloadable shows).

It's also worth noting that cable subscribers can also stream the show on the CTV website, or on the CTV mobile app the day after each episode originally airs.

Can I stream 'Love Island USA' in the UK?

Fans in the UK once again have a wait in store for watching Love Island USA season 6. The good news is that the show is produced by ITV Entertainment, so it's something of a formality that it will appear on the network at some point soon, with previous seasons of Love Island USA having been broadcast on ITVBe.

In the meantime you can watch all four previous seasons of Love Island USA, as well as the ongoing current season of Love Island UK for free via the network's on-demand streaming service ITVX (formerly ITV Hub) from anywhere.

Can I stream 'Love Island USA' in Australia?

It's a similar story Down Under, with no confirmed broadcaster or release date for Love Island USA in Australia.

Having broadcast previous seasons of both Love Island USA and Love Island UK, as well as being the home of the show's Australian version, it's looking like free-to-air Channel 9 will eventually be the place to watch season 6.

In the meantime, Channel 9's on-demand service, 9Now, has all previous seasons of Love Island USA on demand and is also showing the current season of Love Island UK.

Tips for streaming 'Love Island USA' season 6 using a VPN

  • With four variables at play -- your ISP, browser, video streaming provider and VPN -- experience and success may vary.
  • If you don't see your desired location as a default option for ExpressVPN, try using the "search for city or country" option.
  • If you're having trouble viewing after you've turned on your VPN and set it to the correct viewing area, there are two things you can try for a quick fix. First, log into your streaming service subscription account and make sure the address registered for the account is an address in the correct viewing area. If not, you may need to change the physical address on file with your account. Second, some smart TVs -- like Roku -- don't have VPN apps you can install directly on the device itself. Instead, you'll have to install the VPN on your router or the mobile hotspot you're using (like your phone) so that any device on its Wi-Fi network now appears in the correct viewing location.
  • All of the VPN providers we recommend have helpful instructions on their main site for quickly installing the VPN on your router. In some cases with smart TV services, after you install a network's app, you'll be asked to verify a numeric code or click a link sent to your email address on file for your smart TV. This is where having a VPN on your router will also help, since both devices will appear to be in the correct location. 
  • And remember, browsers can often give away a location despite using a VPN, so be sure you're using a privacy-first browser to log into your services. We normally recommend Brave.
