Like Love Island UK and Love Island USA before it, Love Island Australia, 2022 edition, is ready to bring on the dating drama—with a healthy helping of Aussie charm.

The fourth season of the reality dating show premiered on Monday, October 31. And like on other franchises in the Love Island universe, a cast of 10 sexy singletons has been transported and isolated in a luxurious location where they will couple up in the hopes of finding true love—or simply scoring that $50,000 top prize. 

But where can you watch Love Island Australia if you don't live in the magical land of Oz? Here's where to watch season 4 no matter where you are in the world. 

How to watch 'Love Island Australia' 2022:

Every episode of Love Island Australia 2022 will be available to stream on 9Now (opens in new tab), with episodes dropping every Monday through Thursday at 6pm AEDT. The platform also allows subscribers to stream Love Island Australia season 3 as well as the series' first two seasons, in case you want to catch up before the new episodes start.

How to watch 'Love Island Australia' in the US, UK and Canada

However, 9Now geo-blocks service beyond Australia's borders, which means if you want to watch Love Island Australia season 4 from the US, UK, Canada or anywhere else in the world, you're going to have to get sneaky to bypass the platform's geographical restrictions.

That's where a VPN comes in. A VPN allows you to change your IP address, so no matter where you are located, you can access streaming services from different countries (provided you've paid separately for any subscriptions needed) to watch your favorite TV shows. 

Our go-to VPN is ExpressVPN (opens in new tab), rated as the best in the world by our colleagues at TechRadar. Here's how to get started:

  1. First off, you need to make sure you have a 9Now account so you can log in once your VPN is set up.
  2. Then, download ExpressVPN (opens in new tab), using the easy-to-follow instructions (you can get 49% off, three months free and there's a 100% risk-free 30-day money-back guarantee).
  3. Once you've installed your VPN, open the app and select your server location as anywhere in the United States
  4. With your ExpressVPN (opens in new tab) installed and your location set to Australia, head to 9Now, log in and follow the instructions to stream Love Island Australia 2022.

When will 'Love Island Australia' be on Hulu?

The first three seasons of Love Island Australia are available to stream stateside on Hulu, as well as Love Island UK's seven seasons. (Love Island USA is on Peacock, FYI). So it's safe to say that season four of Love Island Australia will also make its way to Hulu. 

However, an official release date has not yet been announced for when fans can expect to see the title on the streaming platform. New episodes of Love Island UK this past season were added to the streaming service two weeks after the original air date on ITV2, so viewers can expect a similar wait time.

If patience isn't one of your strong suits or you're scared of spoilers, go the VPN route.
