Premier League Live outside the UK: a legal and easy way to stream EPL

The English Premier league has millions of fans from every corner of the globe. For those most devout fans, watching the EPL every weekend is a ritual that simply must be observed regardless of work, school, plans or geographical location. Yet when you're travelling or living abroad, finding a reliable (and legal) live stream of the Premier League is not always easy, especially for those looking for UK commentary despite being based outside of the UK. If you are looking for a good quality and reliable way to stream the Premier League online then your best option is to use a VPN. Read on to find out more about how this works, plus some advice on how to find the best EPL live stream for you, depending on your location.

Using a VPN to stream the Premier League live

Anyone who has tried to legally stream the EPL will be aware that most streaming services such as BBC iPlayer, Sky Go or NBC Sport have geographical restrictions, meaning that their content is blocked to people out with the country they are based in. A Virtual Private Network (VPN) is a type of software you can download to alter your IP address and keep yourself private online. The way this works is that your VPN provider will give you a new IP from one of their servers that are based in locations all over the world. So whichever server location you choose is the location that it will look like you are trying to access the web from. At ZenMate we have locations in over 23 countries including the UK, US, Germany and Australia. So essentially with just one click you can watch the Premier League on any streaming service by tricking it into thinking you are accessing the live stream from the country it is being broadcast in.

Stream the UK coverage of the Premier League from anywhere in the world

These days you can find live TV coverage of the Premier League all over the world, but for British expats and holidaymakers it's just not the same as watching Jeff Stelling nearly give himself a heart attack on Soccer Saturday, followed later that evening by a roundup from Gary Lineker on Match of the Day. In the UK, broadcasting rights to the Premier League are split between Sky Sports and BT Sport, so in order to use a VPN to watch these games you will need a subscription to one of these services (or have a generous friend who's willing to share their Sky Go password with you). On the other hand Match of the Day is broadcast on the BBC and a lot of international games are split between the BBC and ITV Player, both of which's streaming services you can access for free.

4 Steps to Streaming the UK Coverage of the Premier League

  1. Create your account with ZenMate and download our app to the device of your choice.
  2. Change your location to the UK on your ZenMate app.
  3. Visit the site that your game is being broadcast on (i.e. for Sky Sports games visit Sky Go and sign into your Sky Go account).
  4. Enjoy watching the Premier League online!

EPL live streaming from other countries

Of course not all Premier League fans come from the UK or have access to a Sky Go account. Maybe you're a Man U obsessed Aussie who wants to watch the football while travelling, or perhaps you're a Brit who's lived in the US for so long that you cancelled your Sky subscription years ago. No need to worry - chances are there's a cable service in your own country who has broadcasting rights to the Premier League. In that case, all you have to do is follow the same steps as above but instead change your location to the country of the streaming service that you are trying to access. Below we've made a list of just some of the EPL broadcasters you can access using ZenMate:

So basically if you or your loved ones have a subscription to any of these cable services (plus many others) you can use a VPN to find a legal and good quality live stream of the Premier League when you are travelling or living abroad.

Extra benefits of using a VPN to watch the Premier League live

The best thing about using this method to stream the Premier League live is that there are so many extra benefits that come with downloading a VPN. Of course it's not just the football that you can unblock with a VPN - by changing your IP address you can also unblock any website on the web, meaning you can now watch the BBC iPlayer from outside the UK, unblock YouTube videos and access the entire US Netflix library. Moreover, a VPN also encrypts your data and keeps you private and secure online. Therefore by using this software you are significantly less likely to become a victim of cybercrime (i.e. by having your credit card details stolen on public wifi) and your personal information will also be protected from overzealous advertisers and spying governments. At ZenMate we offer both a free and premium service of our product, so why not download it now and see what you think for yourself.
