How to watch Great British Baking Show 2022 from anywhere

Just because The Great British Baking Show 2022 isn't available on Netflix everywhere doesn't mean you need to miss out if you're away from home.

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.

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. Thus far, CBC hasn't set a Great British Baking Show 2022  release date.

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