The new series of Fort Boyard starts on France 2 on Saturday (unless you’re in Belgium, then you get on Fridays for whatever reason) and as is usual I’ve set up a discussion page for it.
But if you’re reading this you’re probably not French. How can you watch it?
- Absolutely, if you’re serious about watching foreign free-to-air television, paying for a proper VPN is recommended. I pay for a subscription to Tunnelbear, other paid for VPNs are available. Windscribe has been recommended as a free limited alternative, we can’t be held responsible for what you do to your computer. The advantage of the VPN route is that you can also watch on catch-up if you miss it without too much effort. On the France 2 site, Direct is live, replay is catch-up. Which you probably worked out, but still. You may need to register with a Google account or similar.
- Dodgy live streams may be available, they’re usually heavy on ads so an ad-blocker is recommended. Try searching for France 2 live stream. Again, on your own heads be it.
- Somebody usually uploads them to Youtube a day or two after. Obviously these run the risk of getting taken down, so check early and often.
It’s scheduled to start at 7:55 UK time and will finish just after ten, although French TV timings can be pretty flexible so you’ll probably put it on and get five minutes of the hilarious Parents Mode d’Emploi first, probably. Anyway, there you are.
