FAQs

Let’s now look at some of the most frequently asked questions by sports fans out there. 

How to access a sports streaming channel if it is geo-restricted?

Most of these streaming platforms mentioned above are protected with geo-blocks, so it means you might not be able to view their live shows if you are in a restricted region. For example, ESPN+ is only available in the US only. But thanks to VPNs, you can unblock these restrictions, and stream your favorite sports events live from anywhere in the world. 

However, you should remember that not all VPNs are made for streaming, so make sure to choose the one that can actually unblock these streaming platforms for you. 

How does a VPN work?

With a VPN, you can connect to any country server you want to and unblock local sports channels. Let’s say you want to watch live EPL matches on Sky Sports, you can connect to a UK server and it will give you a British IP address. This way you can trick Sky Sports into thinking you are trying to stream it from somewhere within the UK, thus allowing you complete access to Sky Sports abroad. 

Not all VPNs have the capability of unblocking geo-restricted sports streaming platforms mentioned above. However, reliable VPNs such as ExpressVPN are equipped with advanced features that are capable of bypassing geo-restrictions.

Is VPN legal to use?

The use of VPN may go against the terms and conditions of some streaming platforms, but it is not illegal. So, even if a streaming service discovers you are using a VPN, the only thing they can do is block your access. However, the use of a VPN for accessing geo-restricted streaming services is perfectly legal. 

Conclusion

Thanks to the COVID-19 vaccines, the world is slowly going back to normal, and we will soon be able to watch our favorite sports live from the stadiums. However, if you still want to enjoy live streaming from the comfort of your home, there are plenty of sports channels that you can access using a VPN. With a virtual private network, you can watch any international sports event online from anywhere in the world.
