By Gabriela Vatu / July 19, 2019

This year, we celebrate one of the biggest accomplishments humanity has had - 50 years since the Apollo 11 mission when humans finally stepped on the Moon. On the anniversary day, BBC America will broadcast Moon Landing Live so we can relive the special feelings people had at that time watching this marvellous event on TVs. This time, however, we can watch the Moon landing online.

On the anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission, BBC America will broadcast Moon Landing Live on Saturday, July 20th, retelling the extraordinary story of this historic event, using news archives from around the world and NASA footage to recount the event and how it was covered internationally.

Moon Landing Live will broadcast on BBC America at 9 PM on July 20th, marking 50 years since humans touched the soil of the Moon.

How to Watch the Moon Landing Live Online?

Live TV platforms are great because they give you the chance to enjoy TV online, but if you happen to travel abroad, you will need new ways to access them because there are geo-blocks in place. This means that licensing deals prevent platforms from allowing broadcasts to happen outside of the United States. So, you're going to need to subscribe to a VPN service so you can change your IP and you trick the system. Here is what you need to do.

Can You Watch Moon Landing Live on BBC America's Website?

There is a live stream that you can access on BBC America's website, but you're going to need to log in to an account if you want to watch it. In order to do this, you're going to need credentials from your TV provider, which can be cable company or live TV service.

Live TV platforms are great because they give people a new way to enjoy TV. These platforms are much cheaper than cable plans are so you're going to save some money every month.
