Don’t worry if you’re away during the game and discover that the streaming is geo-blocked, as you can still watch using a handy VPN. It’s really straightforward to do so in three very easy steps:

We’ve tested all of the major VPN services and we rate ExpressVPN as the absolute best. It’s compatible with all of your devices, supports most streaming services and ranks amongst the fastest. You can even install it on devices like an Amazon Fire TV Stick, Apple TV, Xbox and PlayStation. So for a one-stop shop, you can’t go too wrong with Express (and even if you do, its 24/7 support is excellent, too) – but there are more fantastic VPN options out there as well:
– ExpressVPN: the best all-round VPN for streaming, comes with 30-day trial and 3 months FREE if you sign up for a year
