How to live stream rugby union when you’re not in your country
If you’re outside your country of residence – whether that be the UK or anywhere else (see your other options below) – and try to start streaming the rugby via your native broadcaster, you’ll soon discover that you can’t as it is location restricted. Fear not, the action is still within your reach. All you need to do is download and install a VPN to effectively trick your computer into thinking that it’s back home. That way you can enjoy your home coverage (as long as you do so in compliance with the broadcaster’s Ts&Cs) without delving into the dangers of an illegal stream.
It’s really easy to get started with a VPN – simply download, install, open the app and select the appropriate location. For example, you would choose a UK server if you were trying to watch the Channel 4 coverage.
