A guide to ‘Love Island’ in 2024: How to watch the UK and US versions, where to stream past seasons and more

The weather, and your television set, is about to start heating up. It’s not just almost summer time — it’s almost Love Island time! The steamy reality series that started in the UK has become a global phenomenon, with sexy singles from all across the world signing up for a season at the villa. Love Island UK, the show that started it all, is back with Series 11 — or Season 11 for those US fans — this Monday, June 3. Love Island USA will drop the following Tuesday, June 11. Are you ready to dive into the notoriously prolific reality series? There will be new episodes up to six nights a week this summer, so get ready to start streaming. Here’s your guide to Love Island in summer 2024.

Love Island kicks off the summer season with the UK series first, which premieres this Monday, June 3 at 9 p.m. BST (that’s 4 p.m. ET for US viewers, in case you plan on tuning in live with a VPN)

Season 6 of Love Island USA will drop its first episodes the following week on Tuesday, June 11.

Unlike its UK counterpart, which is broadcast in the UK on ITV2 and streams live on ITVX (and on a delay on Hulu for those in the US) Love Island USA only streams exclusively on Peacock.

(Peacock)

Love Island USA streams exclusively on Peacock, alongside all the Bravo shows and more. For $5.99/month, an ad-supported Peacock subscription lets you stream live sports and events airing on NBC, plus, you’ll get access to thousands of hours of shows and movies, including beloved sitcoms such as Parks and Recreation and The Office, every Bravo show and Hallmark movie, and movies like Five Nights at Freddy’s and the Super Mario movie. Right now, you can get a year of Peacock Premium for $19.99.

For $12 per month, you can also upgrade to an ad-free Premium Plus subscription which includes live access to your local NBC affiliate (not just during designated sports and events) and the ability to download select titles to watch offline.

And if you’re a student looking to catch the new season of Love Island, Big 10 basketball games and more, you can take advantage of Peacock’s student discount and get an ad-supported subscription for just $1.99/month for 12 months.

Love Island streams live free on ITVX in the UK. ExpressVPN offers “internet without borders,” meaning you can tune into anything on ITVX for free, just like a UK resident, as opposed to waiting for the new season of Love Island UK to drop on Hulu. All you’ll need to do is sign up for ExpressVPN, change your server location to the UK, and then find the show streaming live on ITVX

ExpressVPN’s added protection, speed and range of location options makes it an excellent choice for first-time VPN users looking to stretch their streaming abilities, plus, it’s Endgadget’s top pick for the best streaming VPN. New users can save 49% when they sign up for ExpressVPN’s 12-month subscription. Plus, the service offers a 30-day money-back guarantee, in case you’re nervous about trying a VPN.

(Hulu)

In the US, you will eventually be able to stream Love Island UK episodes. But the new season of Love Island isn’t set to drop on Hulu until a full week after its UK premiere, so you’ll have to find a way to avoid spoilers. Hulu’s most basic, ad-supported tier will get you access to plenty of other great reality shows, including The Kardashians, The Golden Bachelor, Bachelor in Paradise and more.

$8/month at Hulu

Love Island USA is a spinoff of the smash hit UK reality show. The main difference — beyond hosts, contestants, and the amount of prize money the winning couple is awarded — is which accents you’d like to hear as contestants get their chat on around the bonfire at the villa.

Love Island USA is getting a new host for Season 6. Vanderpump Rules star Ariana Madix will take over hosting duties from Modern Family’s Sarah Hyland.

In the UK, Maya Jama is back for Series 11 of Love Island.

For Love Island USA, new episodes will drop six days a week on Peacock starting June 11, 2024. Last season had 37 episodes over a six week period, and this season is anticipated to follow the same format.

The UK series typically lasts eight weeks, but ITV has yet to confirm the exact duration of the show this season.

You can stream every season of Love Island UK, Love Island All Stars, Love Island Aftersun, Love Island Games, Love Island Australia and all the Love Island reunions free on ITVX in the UK. If you’re watching from outside of the UK, you’ll need the help of a VPN.

You can also catch all of Love Island USA in the UK on ITVX. So if you don’t want to pay for Peacock or Hulu, and you definitely want to watch the UK series anyway, a VPN + free ITVX account may be your best (and cheapest) option.
