ESPN is a really interesting and cool sports channel which broadcast a whole lot of interesting sports events, including basketball, American football and sports that are extremely popular in the United States. That is why it is not strange that expats overseas and other sports enthusiasts really want to see ESPN also when outside the United States. But, how can that be done?
There are several ways in which you can fix this so that you can be able to watch ESPN online. We have already written about one of these ways, and that is by far the easiest, so if you want to watch ESPN easily online and not only watch ESPN, but also lots of other TV channels, then the number one solution is called Sling.tv. Read more about how you can enjoy and watch ESPN together with other live streams at sling.tv in this article.
Despite the fact that it is easy to watch ESPN online on Sling.tv, you might want to watch ESPN online on the actual ESPN website, and for that to work you will need to get yourself an American IP address. An ideal service for this purpose is VyprVPN which can be used easily as you want to get an American IP address and in that way watch ESPN online. Because, what will happen if you reside in Spain (for example) and try to watch ESPN online and visit their website? You will see an error message looking something like this:
To get rid of the message you need to reside virtually in the USA and this can be done as you use the VyprVPN program and connect to a server in the United States which will give you an American IP address, and thus you will no longer be looked upon as someone located outside the United States, but you will get rid of the mentioned error message and instead you will be able to sign up for the service and streams that you are interested in.
Watching ESPN from abroad
As you have your American IP address you will no longer get the message that ESPN Player is not currently available in your region, but instead you will see something like this.
As you can see you can then by special passes for the activities you are interested in such as NCAA College, IndyCar, X Games, NASL and so much more. You can sign up for the packages you are interested in and watch the action you are looking for online, without any special cable subscription. Once you have signed up you will be able to watch ESPN online from wherever you are in the world easily and without problems.
As mentioned earlier you can also watch ESPN on Sling.tv, so read that article for more information if you do not want to watch ESPN on the official ESPN website.
