    Updated to include information on Outlander season 6, as well as the recently announced season 7.

  • Yes, you can. Outlander seasons 1 through season 5 are available in many Netflix libraries with a VPN. To explore VPN options for Netflix in full, check out our Best VPN for Netflix article.

  • Yes, however you need to purchase individual episodes or seasons. Alternatively, you can use the Starz add-on in the U.S. which has a free seven-day trial. You can pair that with Amazon Prime’s 30-day trial if you’re a new subscriber.

  • Many streaming services and VPNs offer free trials via money-back guarantees. There’s also torrenting, of course, but it’s a ginormous security risk without a VPN. Read more in our article on torrenting with a VPN.

How to Watch Outlander: Streaming From the Starz

Starz is Outlander’s home network, so Outlander is available to stream there. If you’ve got a Hulu account, you can add Starz starting from $5.99 a month and watch every Outlander season. 

Due to geoblocking restrictions, if you’re not in the U.S. you won’t be able to access Hulu or Starz without a VPN (more on that below). With a VPN, you can unblock the Hulu and Starz streaming libraries to watch Outlander and other movies such as The Handmaid’s Tale and American Horror Story. Learn more about VPNs in our What Is a VPN article. 

How to Watch Outlander Season 6: Starz, Prime Video & Netflix

Outlander season six is available on U.S. streaming service Starz. If you’re not in the U.S., you can use a VPN to connect to a U.S. server. 

It’s also available on Amazon Prime Video U.S., but not free with a Prime subscription. You can purchase individual episodes and seasons, or add on Starz to watch it. There’s a free seven-day trial with Starz and you can use that together with Amazon Prime’s 30-day free trial. 

Outlander is also available on Netflix in the U.S., though you’ll only find seasons one through season five on there due to exclusivity rights. However, if you want to watch Outlander season six, you can use a VPN to reach a different Netflix library to get around that issue. 

We connected to Netflix using ExpressVPN servers in France and found all available seasons — including Outlander season six.

Our article, How to Watch Netflix With ExpressVPN, shares some simple troubleshoots and fixes if you run into trouble. Don’t forget, ExpressVPN has a 30-day money-back guarantee if you want to try before you buy. 

Is There a Season 7 of Outlander?

Season seven of Outlander has recently been announced. We don’t yet know the release date, but it will likely be late 2022 or early 2023. Season seven will feature 16 full-length episodes — twice that of season six, which was cut to eight episodes from 12 due to Covid delays.

Final Thoughts

In summary, watching Outlander online is definitely possible in spite of geoblocking. You can find Outlander seasons available on Starz, Netflix and Amazon Prime, though you might need to use a VPN to get into other regional libraries.

ExpressVPN is the best VPN for the job, and you can try it out with its 30-day money-back guarantee. Beyond Outlander, you can use it to unblock Netflix France to watch The Office, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, House of Cards, or fantasy series Grimm if you have an Amazon Prime Video subscription.
