If you find yourself unable to watch the game locally, then using a VPN can come in handy. VPNs are also the best way to stop your ISP from limiting your speed on match days by encrypting your traffic, plus it’s a good idea to provide an extra layer of privacy for your device and login when you find yourself connected to a Wi-Fi network while traveling and you want to add it.
With a VPN, you can pretty much change your location on your phone, tablet or laptop to access the game. So if your Internet provider or mobile carrier provides you with an IP address that incorrectly shows your location in a blocked area, a VPN can correct the problem by providing you with the correct IP address in a non-blocked area. Most VPNs, such as our Editor’s Pick ExpressVPN, make this very easy.
It is legal to use a VPN to watch or stream sporting events in any country where VPNs are legal, including the United States and Canada, as long as you are legally subscribed to the service you are streaming. You should make sure your VPN settings are correct to prevent leaks: even if the VPN is legal, the streaming service may terminate the account of anyone it believes is circumventing the properly applied blackout restrictions
