Everyone loves Ted Lasso—the hilarious comedy starring Jason Sudeikis as the title character, an American college football coach that is hired to lead an English soccer team.

Streaming on Apple TV+, the show is not only a fan-favorite but a critical success: Ted Lasso won big at Emmys 2021. The series scooped up some of the top prizes during last year’s run of award shows, actually becoming the most nominated freshman comedy in the history of the Emmys (Jason, Hannah Waddingham and Brett Goldstein also won for their performances). 

So what are you still waiting for? If you haven’t yet caught up on Ted Lasso, it’s time to do so now (there are two seasons to watch!). If you’re already a fan, we suspect you’d like to re-watch all the episodes in preparation for the premiere of season 3, which is currently filming. 

HOW TO WATCH TED LASSO SEASON 1 AND 2 IN THE US

The only way to watch Ted Lasso in the US is with an Apple TV+ subscription. There are a few ways to get one. If you buy an Apple device, you'll get to enjoy the service for free for three full months. You can also opt for a monthly subscription at $4.99 (it includes a free 7-day trial!) or purchase Apple One, which comes with a free one-month trial. If you go for the latter option, you'll basically get to bundle Apple TV+ with up to five other services for a single monthly price.

HOW TO WATCH TED LASSO SEASON 1 AND 2 OUTSIDE THE US

Given that Ted Lasso is an Apple TV+ exclusive production, the only way to watch the show outside of the US is with an Apple TV+ subscription. In the UK, the financial model is the same as it is in the US: you'll get three free months of the service when buying an Apple device. A monthly subscription will cost you £4.99 per month after a free seven-day trial and Apple One plans, which bundle up to five other Apple services into a single monthly subscription, start at £14.95 per month.

If you’re outside of the US and UK, you won't be able to watch the show as you normally would at home, thanks to regional restrictions. Thankfully there’s an easy solution and you can use a VPN to continue watching the hit show. This is a handy bit of software that changes your IP address so that you can access on-demand content or live TV just as if you were at home.
