In 2020, the world of sports changed. Because of that, some sports and leagues have gained interest and prominence, simply because of the lack of other options. That said, when people get interested in a sport, they often develop favorites. That is the case with the Korean Baseball Organization (KBO). This year, the regular season starts on May 5th and finishes up on October 18th. There are a few different broadcast partners showing the games, but if you connect to a VPN, you may watch it anywhere.
How to Watch Korean Baseball from Anywhere
As we mentioned, there are a few different providers you can use to watch the games. Those include KBS, MBC, SBS, SPOTV, and ESPN. In this case, we are going to use ESPN. As long as you have the credentials for ESPN, simply follow the instructions below.
- Sign up for ExpressVPN (includes a 30-day risk-free money-back guarantee).
- Download and install the ExpressVPN app on your device.
- Connect to a VPN server in the US so you can get coverage of the season.
- You can log in to ESPN Go app or website providing you have credentials.
- Enjoy the Korean Baseball Organization games and find a favorite team.
The Korean Baseball Organization League (KBO) was founded in 1982 with six different franchises. However, the league now has 10 teams. Unlike the teams in the US, 9 of the 10 teams are named after the business conglomerations or companies that own them. That said, one of them sold their naming rights. Currently, the KBO League is the most popular sports league in South Korea.
Of the multiple champions over the years, there is one team that has won the most titles (11). Those are the Kia Tigers (named for the Korean auto company). However, the Doosan Bears are the current champions. The question is which team will win this year? You will have to have to tune in to watch.
In 2020, the US sports network ESPN introduced South Korean baseball to the American public. That was due to the lack of live sports available to watch because of the Covid-19 pandemic. The KBO plays its games in empty stadiums with pictures of people in the stands. Whereas many would normally be watching American baseball, the 6 games a week that the network broadcasts have drawn quite a bit of interest.
There are a few things you need to know about these games, though. If you want to watch them live on ESPN, the games are played during the middle of the night if you are watching in the US. If you are not in the US, however, ESPN will restrict its broadcast. However, the way around that is to connect to a VPN server, there. The way to do that is to sign up for SlingTV, which includes ESPN. You will need to connect to a VPN server in the United States to sign up if you are outside the country.
Let’s take a look at the 10 teams in the KBO League in no particular order.
- Doosan Bears
- Hanwha Eagles
- Kia Tigers
- Kiwoom Heroes
- KT Wiz
- LG Twins
- Lotte Giants
- NC Dinos
- Samsung Lions
- SK Wyverns
