This is a step-by-step guide on how to install ITV Hub on FireStick, Fire TV, and Fire TV Cube from abroad.
ITV Hub (now known as ITVX) is a UK-based online video-on-demand streaming app that gives its subscribers access to a huge library of original ITV content as well as TV shows, movies, and programs from other sources.
If you want to be able to choose from a variety of TV programs on your TV screen, you should get ITV Hub on your device especially if you’re a fan of British dramas.
If you’re outside the UK and trying to access the ITVX (previously known as ITV Hub) then you will face the geo-restriction error that says:
“Due to our broadcast and content license, you can only watch ITVX in the UK.”
I was able to unblock ITVX on FireStick with the help of ExpressVPN and by connecting to the UK server.
