Are you a sports lover? Fan of football, basketball, baseball, hockey, and maybe even soccer? Wouldn’t it be good if you had access to all the content you’re craving? Obviously, it does; that’s a silly question to ask. But it can be tricky to watch all the sport you want. That’s why we’ve examined some of the most reasonable, and some that are just downright ridiculous, methods to help you achieve that.
The ultimate way for any sports nut would be to go and see every single game in person. Front row seats at your favoritesport would be even better. Imagine seeing the LA Lakers in action from the front, rubbing shoulders with celebrities; what better way to get involved? Although this would be the best way to get your fix, it’d be the most ludicrous as well. There would be so much traveling involved to get to all the games, especially if you’re watching lots of different types of sport. What kind of life would you have?A sport-fan nomad traveling from game to game to watch it firsthand.
Maybe if you were an eccentric billionaire, it’d be the type of thing you’d do, getting a chopper or private plane into the all the football matches. Add a global pandemic to the equation, and even this plan goes out of the window. Games are held behind closed doors, different states have different lockdown rules, so there’s no way this could happen. On to the next.
Similar to the previous method, this one is more achievable but would still cost a lot to set up. And it’s to buy any, and all cable and streaming services you can think of that have to do with sport. Even then, how would it work? You might not be able to set everything up to the TV in your front room. This means multiple TVs, devices clogging up space so that you can watch all your sports. You don’t want to look like some mad movie villain that’s keeping tabs on the world’s greatest sports stars. So why not go down another route instead?
Thankfully there is a cool little trick that lets you access streaming sports services from all over the world. All it takes is to use a VPN. It’s a piece of software that you can download to a device of your choice, whether it’s your cellphone or tablet. By streaming sport with a VPN, you’ll be able to access different content from all across the world. It’s also as easy as it sounds, which is another huge plus.
Though anything’s easier than traveling across the US trying to take in as many fixtures as you can.With a VPN, you can simply select a different location to access the internet. This can play out in different ways. You could choose to watch European soccer by logging via a server in London, and then you’d have access to live shows. Better than this, you’ll be able to get access to streaming sports services from different countries. You can check out the sports they have, the quality it’s delivered in, and you can watch it from the comfort of your own home.
The VPN is probably our preferred method of watching a whole load of different sports. Especially nowadays, when the only way you can get your hands on live footage of matches is by signing up to different streaming sites. These sites have their own monopoly, and it can be difficult to sign up and costly too.
Thankfully, with a VPN, you can get around this, and it’s a lot cheaper than having to sign up to a streaming site. You just pay for your VPN license and then download it onto your device. Once you’ve done that, you’ll be able to try out all the different streaming sites in other countries. This works well as you’re not restricted to what the US Google will give you when you look up ‘sports streaming sites’! Different countries obviously have different sites, some paid, some unpaid. Part of the fun is exploring to see what’s available (and then adding them to your bookmarks when you’ve found the best). You might even get into beach volleyball.
So there you have it. Yes, in an ideal world,we’d all be like Elon Musk, rocketing (maybe literally) to basketball courts and ice rinks across the country or world. But for us average joes, we can enjoy the benefits of a VPN – an easier method that’s less stressful, cheaper, and gives us more options.
