How to watch Love Island USA: Catch Love Island in the US, UK and abroad

Everything you need to watch season four of Love Island USA

Love Island USA will soon be returning to screens for its hotly anticipated fourth series. The transatlantic counterpart to the UK’s own Love Island began in 2018, with three series to date. It joins a host of international Love Island spinoffs, including Finland, Germany, Poland and Sweden.

While Love Island USA has taken place in the tropical climes of Fiji and the glitzy backdrop of Las Vegas – no overcast Mallorca for those islanders – it’s set to have one noticeable similarity to Love Island UK. The producers recently confirmed that Iain Stirling has been snapped up as the narrator of Love Island USA, and he’ll be gracing series four of the show with his bawdy commentary. Will Stirling be the next James Corden of UK telly exports? Watch this space.

The first three series of Love Island USA ran on American TV network CBS, where they quickly found a cult following. The reality show has since been confirmed for two more seasons at a new streaming service home (clue: think The Office and Battlestar Galactica). Read on for our guide to how to watch Love Island USA, wherever you are in the world.

What is Love Island?

For anyone new to the Love Island hype, you might be wondering what on earth it is and how it actually works. Luckily, we’re here to break it down for you.

Episode one of Love Island will see ten super-toned, super-attractive singletons arrive at an exotic villa, where they must choose a partner to couple up with.

As more contestants turn up throughout the season, islanders must decide if they want to ditch their current beau and couple up with a newbie.

New contestants must not only win over their peers, but also the people watching at home because viewers get the chance to periodically vote for whom they want voted off, including which couple ultimately wins the show.

The couple that wins (the $100,000 prize) must choose whether they want to steal the winning amount or share it with their partner in an ultimate trust of loyalty.

You can expect plenty of silly games, flirting, laughing and crying as the five boys and five girls fight for their chance to be the strongest and most popular Love Island couple.

When will Love Island USA start?

Series four of Love Island USA will return to screens on Tuesday 19 July. If you’re here to watch the drama that ensues from turned heads and steamy challenges, get that date in your diary.

The opening night of any Love Island franchise, be it UK, USA or elsewhere, is always an entertaining affair, so it’s a great excuse to get the gang round for cocktails and Love Island bingo.

How to watch Love Island USA: Peacock

The fourth season of the raunchy reality show will air on streaming platform Peacock. The first episode will be available to stream on Tuesday 19 July.

Peacock is now available to Sky and NOW subscribers in the UK and Ireland. However, it’s yet to be confirmed that Love Island USA will be streaming on the international versions of the Peacock platform, so watch this space for updates.

If you want to watch Love Island USA while you’re travelling abroad without being geo-blocked, a VPN is your best bet.

A VPN (virtual private network) is a piece of software you can install on your laptop, mobile or tablet that tricks your device into thinking it’s in a different country to where it actually is. It does this by temporarily changing your IP address.

So, if you want to watch Love Island USA from abroad, you’ll need to download a VPN and choose the right server location – in this case, the US or UK – create a Peacock account and then login.
