The BRIT (often just called the BRITs or BPI) Awards are the popular music awards for the British Phonographic Industry and are thought to be the British equivalent to the Grammy Awards in America. This year, the 38th edition of the BRIT Awards will be held on February 21st, 2018 at the O2 Arena in London. If you will be in the UK, you can watch it online with the ITV Hub. For those that will be out of town or do not live in the UK, you will need to use a VPN to enjoy the show. Connect to a VPN server in the United Kingdom to watch.
Best VPNs to Watch the BRIT Awards
The BRIT (British Record Industry Trusts Show) Awards first took place in 1977 and was televised by Thames Television. The first live version of the show took place on the BBC in 1988. When ITV took over in 1992, they went back to a pre-recorded format until 2006. After that point, the show became live again.
Live coverage for this broadcast will start at 9:00 PM BST on ITV. If you want to watch the show, you can do so on ITV Hub if you have a TV license. You can also watch it live on the ITV Hub. If you won’t be in the UK at the time, using a VPN is a good idea. That is because ITV will block access to the stream based on where you are at the time. A VPN will take care of that by assigning you an IP address in the UK.
