Today is the first day of the 2014 Premier League season. Don’t miss a second of the action as your favorite teams work their way toward the Barclays Premier League championship. The English league is without a doubt the highest level of competition. However, if you live in other areas of the world it can be hard to gain access to all the excitement. That’s where a good VPN comes in. Providers like IPVanish will help you gain access.
To celebrate the start of the season IPVanish is offering a Premier League Sale. Save 15% off any of their VPN plans. With prices starting at just $5.52 a month for a full year of unlimited VPN access. Once you sign up for service you’ll be able to watch matches from anywhere in the world. Select the country you want to watch from. For example you can connect to a server in London and watch BBC coverage of the games.
Watch Premier League Matches with IPVanish
After signing up the first thing you’ll want to do is download the VPN client. IPVanish offers free client software for Windows, Mac and Linux. Want to watch matches on your phone or tablet? If so IPVanish members have free access to iOS and Android apps.
Once you’ve had a chance to download and install the client you can go ahead and connect. Open up the IPVanish software and select a server. We’ll walk you through step by step using the Windows client.
- Select a server location. We chose Auckland which is perfect if you want to sign up for the Premier League Pass. IPVanish has a large network of servers located around the world.
- We recommend you select OpenVPN (TCP) or (UDP). For streaming videos from sites like YouTube we use OpenVPN (UDP). They also support PPTP and L2TP. We still recommend OpenVPN for the best privacy protection.
- Click connect. After a few seconds you’ll see the button at the bottom change to “Disconnect”. You’ll also notice the server location and IP address show up at the top of the client.
- We’re now located in Auckland as far as anyone can tell online. As such we can reach any site as if sitting in Auckland. The same would be true if we connected to a server in the US, UK or anywhere else in the world.
That’s all there is to it. Now that you have an IP address from the IPVanish server in Auckland you can browse the Internet as if you were there. Including the Premier League Pass site. The same is true from any country. Connect to a server in the UK for BBC coverage or a US server to watch US coverage of the matches.
