Watch Premier League OnlineWatch Premier League Online (with VPN)

The Premier League is the most-watched football league in the world, but if you find yourself abroad and unable to find the matches you want to see on local television, VPN services can be used in conjunction with an internet connection to make sure you never miss a single kick. This guide outlines how VPN providers work and how their services can be used alongside other internet-based services to ensure you can watch Premier League football online, from anywhere in the world.

Step One: Identify an online Premier League service

The first step to watching Premier League coverage whilst abroad is to find an online service which offers live streaming of football matches. There are various completely legal options available to you, although most will require you to pay a subscription fee.

If you wish to view live football coverage exactly as it would be if you were in the UK, your best options are SkyGo, BT Sport’s live streaming and the BBC iPlayer. This is because Sky Sports, BT Sport and the BBC own the British broadcasting rights for the Premier League.

If you are a Sky subscriber, who is abroad temporarily, SkyGo should be included in your package. However, if you are not a Sky customer, you can still access SkyGo by purchasing the SkyGo Monthly Ticket. BT Sport streaming is available to BT customers, while the BBC iPlayer is free and available from

Alternative services are available in other countries, offering access to a huge amount of Premier League football. Sometimes you will have to compromise on having non-English commentary, but a few services, such as the New Zealand-based, even manage to supply English commentary for their coverage.

Step Two: Sign up with a suitable VPN provider

During step one, you may have noticed that many of the options available to you are geo-restricted and cannot be accessed from outside the country where the product is based. This is because websites and software are able to detect where you are located, using the IP address you have been given by your Internet Service Provider.

To get around this problem, you can sign up with a Virtual Provide Network service, which will encrypt your internet traffic and provide you with access to servers in other countries, effectively giving you the IP address of that server.

The best 3 VPN Provider to unblock Premier League

To make use of the PremierLeaguePass website in New Zealand, Overplay is one of the best VPN providers with servers in New Zealand. If you wish to make use of UK-based services, popular VPN providers with British servers include Express VPNHideMyAssIPVanish and many others youll find on this page. VPNs with servers in multiple countries will allow you to use a combination.

Express VPN offers a 30 days, no questions asked money back guarantee. If you just want to unblock Premier League while you are on holiday – this might be the smartest choice. If you dont need it anymore within 30 days, you can return it.

Step Three: Install software and log in

Most VPN providers will require you to install client software onto your computer, mobile phone or tablet in order to use their service. Follow the individual instructions given by the VPN provider you chose in step two and install the software. Similarly, if the Premier League streaming service you have chosen requires the installation of software, make sure the software is installed onto the device you wish to watch it on.

Once all of the relevant software is installed, open up the VPN client software, log in and connect to a server of your choice, in the country you require access to. Different VPN providers will utilise different software, so you may need to refer to their specific user guide, but this process should be relatively easy.

Step Four: Watch Premier League football online

Upon connecting to a server supplied by your VPN provider, your internet connection should appear to be originating from the country that server is located in. This should work to bypass any geographical restrictions. From there, you should be able to access SkyGo, BBC iPlayer, PremierLeaguePass or whichever service you opted for in step one and start watching Premier League football online.
