Summer is about to heat up, and so is your streaming schedule. A new season of Love Island (UK) premiered last night on ITV2 (and streaming on ITVX). Season 11 — or Series 11, for British folks — features a new cast of sexy singles searching for love in the Majorca villa. Maya Jama is back as the host of the prolific reality series — which will air new episodes six nights a week (Sunday to Friday) throughout the summer. Love Island UK will eventually stream on Hulu in the US, but if you don't want to dodge spoilers on the internet until you can catch up, we've got you covered. Here's how to watch Love Island UK live from the US tonight — or more like this afternoon, for US viewers. Plus where to stream all the new episodes before they hit Hulu.

And if you're looking for more info on Love Island USA, we've got a Love Island guide for you, too!

Love Island kicks off the summer season with the UK series first, which premiered this Monday, June 3. New episodes drop Sunday through Friday at 9 p.m. BST — that’s 4 p.m. ET for US viewers, if you plan on tuning in live with a VPN.

Love Island 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 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.

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

The UK series typically lasts eight weeks, but ITV has yet to confirm the exact duration of the show this season. The series will air new episodes Sunday through Friday.

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 want to watch the UK series anyway, a VPN + free ITVX account may be your best (and cheapest) option.
