How to watch Great British Bake Off 2022 from anywhere on Earth

Just because Channel 4 isn't available everywhere doesn't mean you need to miss The Great British Bake Off 2022 if you're away from home. Watching along with the rest of the internet can be pretty easy. With the right VPN (virtual private network), you can stream the show from wherever you go.

Not sure which VPN is right for you? We've tested many different services and our pick for the best VPN overall is ExpressVPN (opens in new tab). It offers superb speeds and excellent customer service.

Our favorite VPN service, ExpressVPN (opens in new tab), really shines thanks to its safety, speed and simplicity-to-use.

Using a VPN is incredibly simple.

1. Install the VPN of your choice. As we've said, ExpressVPN (opens in new tab) is our favorite.

How to watch The Great British Bake Off 2022 in Canada

Good news and bad news for Canadians. The good news is that GBBO, which is also called The Great British Baking Show in Canada, is on CBC and the CBC Gem (opens in new tab) streaming service. 

The bad news is that new seasons usually don't become available until months after the U.K./U.S. broadcasts. CBC hasn't set a GBBO series 12 release date but we expect it'll be spring or summer 2023.

Anyone who wants to watch live can use ExpressVPN (opens in new tab) so they don't have to wait. 

Can you watch The Great British Bake Off 2022 in Australia?

So, (again) good news and bad news. Australia's Binge will have The Great British Bakeoff 2022 — but not live as it airs everywhere else. 

So, as we noted above, you should use a service such as ExpressVPN (opens in new tab) so you don't have to wait.
