Use a VPN to Watch Surviving R Kelly
Surviving R Kelly will repeat on U.S channel Lifetime TV on Tuesday, February 5th at 10 pm. U.K. viewers should then be able to tune in by using a VPN tool.
U.S. channel Lifetime TV can be accessed so long as your VPN address appears to be in the U.S.A.
You can purchase a VPN tool for a few pounds per month, which will redirect your VPN to the U.S.A. Basically, you make it look like your laptop is in the United States when you’re actually in the U.K.
Here’s all you need to know about using a VPN tool to watch Surviving R Kelly online.
1. Pick a VPN Tool
There are a wealth of VPN tools out there but we recommend the likes of Express VPN, VPN Hub, Panda, Cyber Ghost, Nord VPN, Pure VPN, Vypr VPN and unlocator.com.
All of them will cost a little bit of dollar although some of the tools offer free 30-day trials.
There are also multiple packages depending on whether you want to hide ads or block privacy filters, etc.
However, the cheapest and simplest package is all you need to watch Surviving R Kelly from the U.K.
2. Download and Install
Simply sign up to your chosen VPN tool – usually via one, three, six or 12-month deals – and download the tool.
3. Follow the Instructions
Each VPN tool comes with different guidelines.
However, they’re all relatively easy to follow but may vary depending on whether you have a MacBook or Windows software.
The key is remembering to select ‘U.S’ when prompted to select where you would like your new VPN to be registered – this is rerouting your VPN from the U.K to the U.S.A.
3. Access Lifetime
With the VPN correctly setup you should now be able to access the Lifetime channel.
All three parts of Surviving R Kelly will be available through Lifetime shortly after they finish broadcasting.
