LAPD homicide detective Harry Bosch is the fictional hero of the bestselling novels by Michael Connelly. Bosch was turned into a hugely popular Amazon Prime show starring Titus Welliver. The seventh and final season was released last June. The new spin-off show, Bosch: Legacy, picks up the story as Bosch retires from the police – but not crime-solving.  

Madison Lintz will return as Harry's daughter, Maddie, alongside Bosch's one-time adversary, defense attorney Honey "Money" Chandler (Mimi Rogers). We won't spoil it for you but Bosch: Legacy season 1 sees Maddie follow in her father's footsteps and join the LAPD as a rookie patrol cop, only to uncover a dark secret...

The first four episodes of Bosch: Legacy debut on Friday 6th May, only on Amazon Prime's Freevee app. Make sure you know how to watch a Bosch: Legacy live stream from wherever you are.

Good news: Bosch: Legacy is exclusive to Freevee, Amazon's free (ad-supported) streaming service so you won't have to pay a penny.

Watch Bosch: Legacy from abroad with a VPN

Even if you have subscribed to the relevant Bosch: Legacy rights holders, you won't be able to access them when outside your own country. The service will know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block your access.

A Virtual Private Network (VPN) helps you get around this obstacle. VPNs are a doddle to use and create a private connection between your device and the internet. All the information passing back and forth is entirely encrypted.

There are many VPN providers out there, with some more reliable and safe than others. As a rule, we’d suggest a paid-for service such as ExpressVPN which offers a 100 percent risk-free money back guarantee. If you're not happy with the service any time within the first 30 days, then you can cancel with no penalties at all.
