How to watch Super Bowl using a VPN

Super Bowl 51 will be aired on Sunday February 5th, 2017

The New England Patriots and Atlanta Falcons, two strongest football teams in the country this year, are meeting in Houston, Texas. on Sunday for the biggest sporting event in America. There are many choices on how to watch the game from the U.S.: including FoxSports.com, Stream TV, SlingTV or NFL( Mobile app).

How to watch the game outside of the US?

The main issue is that when your are outside of the U.S., you are most often restricted from enjoying the streaming sites due to geographical content restrictions. Fox Sports is a good option to watch the game outside of the U.S., as this year they are promoting free live streaming, but it is unavailable from outside the US.

These geographical watching restrictions and geographical price discrimination (NFL apps) limit everyone’s ability to freely watch your favorite sports programs and/or TV shows.

The solution for borderless watching of sports games is a VPN (Virtual Private Network) that allows you to connect to the Internet by circumventing the said restrictions.

What is a VPN?

A VPN service links users computer to a server in a country of their choice via encrypted tunnel – for example, a person can appear to be in the U.S., while they actually are in Europe, and vice versa, simply by choosing a different VPN server location. A VPN service like NordVPN would allow you to substitute your current IP address with the IP address of the United States so you can watch the Super Bowl as if you were in the States.

VPNs also offer security by encrypting all data shared between the Internet and a user ’s system, so none of the data can be compromised.

Here’s how you connect to the U.S. streaming site with NordVPN:

  • Get NordVPN and download the app for your specific device
  • Set your connection to USA
  • Go to the website of your preferred NFL streaming site and log in.

Happy Super Bowl watching!
