We're getting a bumper crop of Love Island in 2023, with two separate seasons taking place over the year, and kicking off in January is Winter Love Island 2023.

If you're keen to watch Winter Love Island 2023 online, this guide will help you, so you can keep up with all the gossip and drama from the new villa. 

The new Love Island host, Maya Jama, presides over the action of this season. Now we're into week three, we've dealt with all sorts of drama, including some tense recouplings and some make-ups and break-ups. Another recoupling is looming, and there are three more weeks left before we find out which couple will be joining the Love Island winners list. But until then, you're probably wondering where you can watch Winter Love Island.

Thankfully it's easy, whether you live in the US, UK or elsewhere, and here's how. (If you're abroad from home, we'd recommend a VPN like ExpressVPN (opens in new tab).)

How to watch Winter Love Island 2023 online in the US

If you live in the US, you can watch Love Island, but you'll be a little bit behind the actual series.

Disney-owned streaming service Hulu began airing the episodes beginning on January 30, with new episodes dropping daily. That means you're two weeks behind the actual events.

Hulu costs $7.99 per month for its ad-supported plan, though with the Disney Bundle you can pay just $9.99 to add in Disney Plus or $12.99 for both with ESPN Plus thrown in too.

How to watch Winter Love Island 2023 online in the UK

The first series of Love Island 2023 began at 9 pm on Monday, January 16 on ITV2. New episodes are currently airing on a daily basis at the usual time. 

If you're looking to keep up with all the latest gossip, you can either catch it live on ITV2 or stream live and on-demand for free via ITV's revamped streaming service, ITVX (as long as you have a valid TV license).
