How to watch F1 from Anywhere

UEFA 2016, the US Open Golf Tournament, and of course 2016 Olympics in Rio, Brazil. Seems like summer 2016 was all about sports, excitement and international competition.

For some sports the excitement is still going strong.

On Sunday, September 4th, the Formula 1 Italian Grand Prix  will be held and soon after – on September 18th it’s Singapore Grand Prix and 6 more games after that.

The most loyal fans won’t want to miss the upcoming races.

Where can I watch F1?

If you live in the big western countries, with extended cable subscriptions, and special sports channels you’re probably covered. In the US, it’s through NBC Sports Live Extra, in the Baltic States through Viasat Sport Baltic, in Hong Kong through Fox Sports Plus, and so on. Of course, you’ll have to have a subscription as well.

There are however alternatives, which allow you to watch the games online :

TEN PLAY ( in Australia )

Channel 4 (in UK)

NBC Sports  (in USA)

Most will show the races live, with several summary/ exclusive videos to come later on. Trouble is, you have to live in those countries to access the service without interruptions.

Tough luck?

Not so quick. You can watch NBC, Channel 4, or Ten Play from anywhere in the world with the help of the powerful VPN technology.

A VPN (Virtual Private Network) is growing in popularity across the world—it allows users to connect to a server in another location, and have all traffic go through that server.

So you can be living in India and connect to a server in the UK, and you’ll be able to watch fast, smooth, and for free the Formula 1  races on Channel 4.

Too good to be true? 

It isn’t.  Just make sure you use the right type of VPN service, as free ones can have many problems. NordVPN’s has lightning fast speed and layers of encryption, so it’s one of the most secure VPNs in the business. Also, it doesn’t store communication logs, so you can be sure that it’s completely safe.
