The X-Files is one of the most renowned cult TV shows in the world. Originally running from 1993 to 2001, The X-Files suddenly made a comeback in 2016, much to fans’ delight. Now, the infamous supernatural detective show is back once again for season 11.

Sadly for most people around the world, Netflix lost the right to show The X-Files as of January 1, 2018. For most people, that means an inability to watch The X-Files Season 11 online. The good news is that with a Virtual Private Network (VPN), anybody, anywhere, can pretend to be in the US to watch episodes of The X-Files Season 11 online live. 

When Can I Stream X-Files Season 11

X Files Season 11 premiered on January 3, 2018. Episodes of the new season air every Wednesday at 20:00 EST on FOX US.

How Can I Stream X-Files Season 11?

In order to watch FOX online, it is necessary to have a valid US cable subscription. If you are a US resident that is currently outside of the US on vacation or working, you can use a VPN to access your regular cable subscription via the internet.

Non-US residents who want to stream the new season of the X-Files from outside the US can do so using the online streaming service Sling TV. Sling TV is an awesome online US cable video streaming service. It can be purchased on a month by month basis for as little as $20. For that price, subscribers can access not only FOX but also to ESPN, Disney, AMC, Showtime, CNN, and up to 135 channels. 

Unfortunately, Sling TV is only available in the US – so you will need to connect to a VPN server to subscribe to the service. The good news is that Sling TV provides a free seven-day trial. That means you can watch one episode of The X-Files for nothing. For fans of US TV and sports, Sling TV is truly an outstanding service that is hard to beat.

The great thing about Sling TV is that there are no contracts. Subscribers can pay for one month at a time, without having to make any long-term commitment. That means you can subscribe just while the X-Files is airing, and then stop if you prefer.

How to Watch The X-Files with a VPN

Watching The X-Files Season 11 with a VPN is a walk in the park. To do so, follow these easy steps:

  1. Select a VPN service. To stream X-Files Season 11, we recommend ExpressVPN, because it has super fast servers in the US that are perfect for watching FOX.
  2. If you prefer a few more options, take a look at our 5 Best VPNs article.
  3. Subscribe to your chosen VPN, and install the software on your PC, laptop, Mac, Android or iOS device. ExpressVPN permits users to install the software on three devices.
  4. Connect to a server in the US.
  5. Navigate to Sling TV, make use of the free trial, and watch one episode of The X-Files for nothing!

Remember: A VPN also encrypts all of your data. That means nobody: not your ISP, FOX or Sling TV, will know that you are outside of the US. A VPN provides privacy at the same time as the ability to bypass geo-restrictions.

BestVPN.com does not condone copyright infringement. While we are aware that VPNs can be used to spoof your location to another country, and thus overcome geo-restrictions, their primary purpose is to provide you with online security and privacy. First and foremost, this is why we recommend using a VPN.

The X-Files Season 11 – What to Expect

So far, three episodes of The X-Files have aired on Fox. Those episodes are:

  1. S11 E01 · My Struggle III
  2. S11 E02 · This
  3. S11 E03 · Plus One

S11 E04 is called The Lost Art of Forehead Sweat. It centers around a phenomenon known as the “Mandela Effect.” In the episode, Mulder and Scully meet a group of people who remember an alternate history. Those people lead the two FBI agents to information about how the X-Files might have originated.

Wednesday, January 24’s episode is bound to be a thriller – so be sure to tune in and watch it using a VPN.

The Last Season Ever?

Despite the fact that Season 10 of The X-Files was the most watched season ever, it would appear that Season 11 might be the last. Sadly, Gillian Anderson has announced that this season will be the last one she stars in. For X-Files fans that means one thing: they must make the most of Season 11! And what better way to do so than to watch every episode as it airs on FOX!?
