How to Use a VPN to Watch the WBC from Anywhere

If you’re traveling outside your home country and want to watch the WBC, or just want an extra layer of streaming privacy, there’s an option that doesn’t require searching the internet for a sketchy website: you can use a VPN, or virtual private network.

With a VPN, you can virtually change your location on your phone, tablet, or laptop to access WBC broadcasts, which is handy if you’re unable to view the games locally. A VPN is the best way to prevent your ISP from throttling your speeds by encrypting your traffic. Using a VPN is also a great idea if you’re traveling and find yourself connected to a Wi-Fi network, and want to add an extra layer of privacy for your devices and connections.

If you can’t find a convenient opportunity to watch the WBC where you live, using a VPN with a US-based server should provide access to some or all of the streaming options listed below. Most VPNs, like our Editors’ Choice, ExpressVPN, make this very easy to do.

Using a VPN to watch or stream sports is legal in any country where VPNs are legal, as long as you have a legitimate subscription to the service you’re streaming. You need to make sure your VPN is set up correctly to prevent leaks: Even when VPNs are legal, the streaming service can terminate the account of anyone it believes is circumventing properly applied blackout restrictions. Check out our list of the best VPNs to learn more, and check out other great VPN deals going on right now.

Quick tips for streaming the WBC using a VPN

  • With four variables in play – your ISP, browser, video streaming provider, and VPN – experience and success can vary.
  • If you don’t see your desired location as the default option for ExpressVPN, try using the “search for a city or country” option.
  • If you’re having trouble getting the game after turning on your VPN and setting it to the correct viewing area, there are two things you can try for a quick fix. First, log into your streaming service subscription account and make sure that the address registered for the account is an address in the correct viewing area. If not, you may need to change the physical address registered in your account. Second, some smart TVs – like Roku – don’t have VPN apps that you can install directly on the device itself. Instead, you’ll need to install the VPN on your router or whatever mobile hotspot you use (like your phone) so that any device on its Wi-Fi network will now appear in the correct viewing location.
  • All of the VPN providers we recommend have helpful instructions on their main site for quickly installing the VPN on your router. In some cases with Smart TV services, after installing a cable network’s sports app, you will be asked to verify a numeric code or click on a link sent to your registered email address for your Smart TV . This is where having a VPN on your router will also help, as both devices will appear in the correct place.
  • And remember, browsers can often give away location despite using a VPN, so make sure you’re using a privacy-focused browser to connect to your services. We normally recommend Brave.
