The Bay is a very popular TV series created by ITV in the United Kingdom.

They are currently recording a third season of The Bay, and hopefully, it will be released in 2022.

You would expect that the best place to watch The Bay online for free would be at the ITV website. But, that isn’t entirely true. Currently, you can only find the second season of The Bay on the ITV website. It is available for free, but it is still a bit complicated. There is a much better and a much easier method for those who want to watch The Bay online for free, and that is to watch it on the websites of the Norwegian TV channel named NRK. You can find both seasons of this TV series at the following URL: https://tv.nrk.no/serie/the-bay/sesong/1

Visit the website and check it out. Most likely, you will see an error message looking like this is you try to watch The Bay on the NRK website.

How can I get rid of the error message?

As I mentioned, it is completely free to watch the two seasons of The Bay on the NRK website. But, there is a slight problem. You have to reside in Norway for this to work. Considering that Norway is one of the most expensive countries in the world, that might sound very complicated. Luckily for you, it is possible to virtually reside in Norway, without actually moving there. The solution is to use the VPN services of NordVPN. This is a VPN provider based in Panama, with servers in nearly 60 countries, and it is fantastic for streaming.


You need a subscription to NordVPN in order to watch NRK with all its content outside Norway. They have a 30-day money-back guarantee, so in case you do not like it, you can always ask for a refund.

You can also use NordVPN to watch content on SVT in Sweden, PeacockTV in the USA, NBC in the United States, Netflix content in five countries, RaiPlay in Italy, and much more. It is also important to remember that a VPN is encrypting your data online. As a result, it will give you an extra layer of security when surfing the Internet and transmitting confidential information. It also keeps you secure when using open WiFi networks. It isn’t a coincidence that millions of people around the world use a VPN connection every single day in order to stay anonymous and safe online!

Here I am using the NordVPN application and I am connecting to a server in Norway.

When you have purchased a NordVPN subscription, download their VPN application to your computer, to your telephone, to your smart TV, or to your tablet.

Run the application and connect to a server in Norway, like you can see me doing in the picture above.

When you are connected to the server in Norway you have a Norwegian IP address. This means that all your Internet traffic is encrypted and running through a NordVPN server in Norway. When you return and visit the NRK website again, or if you open the NRK application on your mobile device, they will believe that you are in Norway, and you will be allowed to watch The Bay and all the other content on the NRK website.
