Can I watch the Euro 2016 on ARD/ZDF from outside Germany?

I am a big fan of Germany and hope for a German victory in the Euro 2016. But, since I am outside Germany I can not watch the Euro 2016 online on German TV since I am abroad. Is there anything I can do to watch the Euro 2016 online on German TV from abroad?


ARD and ZDF will broadcast the Euro 2016 on German television. These are free TV channels which can be watched by everybody, but you will need a German IP address for the live streams to work. If you are located outside Germany then you will have an IP address in the nation you are currently in, so to get access to the live streams showing the European Championship in football online on German TV you will need to get yourself a German IP address. Luckily that is something that can be fixed easily and to get a local IP in Germany you should use the services of HideMyAss.HideMyAss

Visit the HideMyAss website and get yourself a subscription. Download the HideMyAss program. Connect to a server in Germany.

That is it. If you have followed the steps above you now have a German IP address and with your new IP address you will be able to watch all the Euro 2016 matches live on German TV online from all across the world.

We hope you will try this and that it will work just as fine for you as it does for us. If you are not satisfied HideMyAss has a thirty day full refund policy.
