Where to watch Fleabag in the UK

Fleabag is a multiple award-winning TV programme, based on writer Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s one-woman stage play. The first season aired originally online on BBC Three, before being re-run on BBC2, in 2016. The second, and final, season was shown on BBC1 in 2019. Both received critical acclaim. 

Don’t worry if you missed this sharp tragi-comedy when it was originally shown: you can catch up on all 12 episodes right now. Read on to find out how you can watch Fleabag in the UK.

Fleabag - watch now on BBC iPlayer and Amazon Prime

How to watch Fleabag on BBC iPlayer

You’ll find both seasons of Fleabag on BBC iPlayer: you’ll need a TV licence to access it. You’ll be able to view it on the iPlayer website using any browser, or by downloading the iPlayer app on mobile devices, smart TVs, streaming sticks, Apple TV, and Android TV boxes. 

iPlayer states that all the episodes are available for ‘over a year’: there’s no exact date as to when they will be removed.

  • What broadband speed do I need to watch BBC iPlayer?

    BBC iPlayer recommends the following broadband speeds:

    • Standard quality recommended speed: 1.5Mb
    • High quality recommended speed: 5Mb

    Cheap ADSL broadband can be suitable for viewing iPlayer in high quality (though it may struggle if you try to stream more than one show at a time). For multiple HD streams, you will need fibre optic broadband.

    In general, we recommend a minimum broadband speed of 2Mb to comfortably use any streaming video service at the lowest quality. But higher-quality video will demand more bandwidth, and you also have to consider whether other people in your home will be using the connection at the same time.

    For further help see our guide to choosing a broadband speed and introduction to broadband speeds.

How to watch Fleabag on Amazon Prime Video

The first season of Fleabag is available on Amazon Prime Video. If you are a Prime member then you can watch all the episodes for free. If not, you can buy either individual episodes or the full series: you will need an Amazon account for this, however. 

Season 2 is on Prime Video but it isn’t currently available free. If you want to watch it, you’ll have to buy it, regardless of whether you are a Prime member or not.

You can watch Amazon Prime on any computer via a browser, or on smart TVs and mobile devices through the Prime Video app. Amazon Prime Video is also available on a wide variety of streaming TV devices including Roku, NVIDIA Shield, and Amazon's own Fire TV.

  • What broadband speed do I need to watch Amazon Prime Video?

    Amazon does not have official guidance on the speeds required for Prime Video. The following is a rough guide to what speed you'll need for streaming Prime Video:

    • SD quality: 0.9Mb
    • HD quality: 5Mb
    • Ultra HD/4K quality: 15Mb

    Cheap ADSL broadband can be suitable for viewing Amazon Prime Video up to HD quality (though it may struggle if you try to stream more than one show at a time). For Ultra HD video or multiple HD streams, you will need fibre optic broadband.

    In general, we recommend a minimum broadband speed of 2Mb to comfortably use any streaming video service at the lowest quality. But higher-quality video will demand more bandwidth, and you also have to consider whether other people in your home will be using the connection at the same time.

    For further help see our guide to choosing a broadband speed and introduction to broadband speeds.

How much will it cost to stream Fleabag?

BBC iPlayer itself is free to stream and download from but you will need to have a TV licence before you can watch its programmes.

Amazon Prime membership costs £79 per year or £7.99 per month, or £5.99 per month for Prime Video only. If you’re a member the first season of Fleabag is free for you to watch. If you’re not, or you want to watch season 2 (which is not yet free to Prime members), then it will cost you £1.89 per episode for an SD download, or £2.49 in HD. You can buy both seasons for £10.99 each (SD) or £13.99 (HD).

Will I like Fleabag?

Fleabag is a comedy-drama with acerbic black-humour and a main character who frequently breaks the fourth wall to include the audience in her thoughts. She initially presents as sarcastic and sassy but as the episodes progress, we learn more about the tragedy that underpins her every action and the vulnerabilities that she is trying to protect herself from. If you like witty, female-driven programmes such as Chewing Gum, Killing Eve (which Waller-Bridge was also involved in) and Russian Doll then you should give Fleabag a try.
