The World Cup is upon us and I’m planning on watching every single match!
This is sometimes tricky, as I’m not always at home with cable tv, so I have to look at ways to watch it on the go.
And it’s even more tricky, because I’m spending some of the time in Russia & Italy. This means my domestic streaming service is geo-blocked and I’m forced to watch it with foreign language commentators.
So I did some research on the best way to stream the World Cup. I had two requirements:
- I have to be able to watch it from anywhere
- It has to be English commentators
The solution turned out to be a combination of streaming the matches from TVPlayer.com and using Express VPN to get an English IP.
TVPlayer shows all the matches from BBC for free, so I only have to spend money on the VPN (which I already do anyway). It’s a pretty good combo that will work in any country and from any device.
