How to watch NOS outside the Netherlands? (updated November 2019)

NOS is a great TV channel in the Netherlands with lots of great TV shows on their schedule. NOS is an abbreviation for Nederlandse Omroep Stichting, which in English would be Netherlands Broadcasting Foundation. The question is still how you can watch NOS from outside the Netherlands, from abroad?

Some of the most popular programs on NOS are different sports events such as Champions League matches, Olympics Games, Tour de France and similar shows. Unfortunately, the live streams of NOS are limited to people residing in the Netherlands surfing the Internet with a Dutch IP address, making it hard for people outside the nation to watch the live stream. But, there is a way in which you can easily see the live stream anyway, and if you keep on reading, you can watch the NOS live stream in 5-10 minutes from now.

If you try to watch NOS from outside Netherlands with a non-Dutch IP address, you will simply get a black screen like you can see on the screenshot beneath.
