Use VPN to access closed door sporting events streamed in other countries

If you’re new to the idea of VPN services, we know that it can feel quite intimidating initially but – it’s actually really simple!

Suitable for a wide range of Window, Mac and Android devices including Fire and Android TV, our VPN and proxy subscription service hide your IP address. This means you can access geographically blocked websites and enjoy sports (as well as a wide range of other live streaming TV) from anywhere in the world.

For example, you could watch BT Sport in the USA, Germany, Ireland, Netherlands, France, Spain, Portugal, Australia, Dubai, Canada etc with a VPN. Without it, you will see an error message, often stating that the content isn’t available in your region – this is trigged when your IP address is detected for geo-blocked content.

However, with our VPN router and software subscription, your IP address remains hidden, data stays secure and you’ll be able to access the game of your choice from any device you like with just a simple five-minute download. Pretty nifty if you don’t want to miss a single second of the sporting action!
