How Can I Watch Top Chef When Traveling Outside of the US?

Those who travel often may already be aware of this, but we'll say it either way: live TV platforms and streaming services are geo-blocked. It happens because all of these have contracts that only permit them to stream content in the USA. Either way, you're going to need help when you go abroad because you'll simply get blocked and won't be able to keep up with Top Chef. You can do this by changing your IP address with a VPN, so you appear to be in the US. We can recommend you use ExpressVPN, which is an excellent app, with thousands of servers and some great privacy features.

Here's how you can use ExpressVPN to watch Top Chef:

Can I Watch Top Chef Live on the Network's Website?

Unfortunately, there's no live stream on the Bravo website, so you'll have to stick to the live TV services we already discussed if you want to watch Top Chef live.

Can I Binge-Watch Top Chef?

You most certainly can do that! There are a ton of Top Chef seasons available, and you can find those over on the Bravo website, and you can also binge-watch on Hulu. You can check either of those out whenever you want to enjoy previous seasons or the new episodes.

Can I Purchase Top Chef Episodes?

Yes! Top Chef episodes and seasons are available to buy from various platforms we're sure you've visited a time or two - Google Play, YouTube, iTunes, Microsoft Store, Amazon Prime, or Vudu. Make sure you check them all out in case they have discounts available, so you can save some money.
