How to watch new Top Gear: Including outside the UK

Since the new series of Top Gear is on BBC Two you can watch live via a number of methods including regular broadcast TV – you will need a TV license to watch it live, though. This is true if you watch on the BBC iPlayer while it's being broadcast as opposed to catch-up.

If you're wanting to watch the new Top Gear from outside the UK then you'll need to use a VPN. There are free ones like Hola which let you browse from the UK in order to access iPlayer or paid ones if that doesn't work.
