From September 18th to September 27th, the World Weightlifting Championships is arranged in Pattaya in Thailand. Would you like to see the event online? Are you looking for a TV channel that will let you see all the action live on your computer at home? This is how you can stream the event online!
While most of the world are curious about the Rugby World Cup which will start on September 20th in Japan, there are a few devoted fans of Weightlifting that are willing to do anything to stream the World Championships online. So, to help you all out, here you will find some help and instructions telling you how it can be done!
TV Channels broadcasting the World Weightlifting Championships
There are quite a lot of channels airing the event, but many of those are pay-TV channels in nations, making it much harder. But, there are some TV channels that you can stream for free as well that will broadcast the Weightlifting Championships live from Pattaya, and here you have them.
The World Weightlifting Championships on German TV: ARD/ZDF
These are the most popular channels in Germany and they are awesome at broadcasting sports events. They normally broadcast both the Summer Olympics and the Winter Olympics, and they also show the FIFA World Cup, the European Championships in football, and so much more. Now they will also broadcast from the World Weightlifting Championships. I cannot guarantee exactly how much they will show and which channel will show what, but this should work out.
If you try to watch ARD outside Germany and ZDF abroad, you will get error messages telling you that the streams are only available to people residing in Germany. To avoid such geo-blocks, use the VPN services of PureVPN and stream all the content on ARD and ZDF immediately.
PureVPN can be used for 31-days without any risk, as they have a full refund policy valid for the first 31 days. You can use it to get an IP address in more than 100 different nations, and it works very well with ITV in England (if you want to watch the Rugby World Cup), with BBC in England, with American Netflix, and lots of other TV channels all around the world. You can use one PureVPN subscription at five devices at the very same time!
The World Weightlifting Championships on Russian TV: Match TV
The Russians are people of power, and they also seem to like people with a lot of power, but enough about politics for now. Match TV in Russia will broadcast the World Championships, and this is a completely free channel that you can stream all across the world, as long as you use the VPN services of PureVPN (which I told you more about earlier in the article). If you sign up for their VPN service, download their VPN client and connect to a server in Russia, you are ready to stream the Weightlifting event online immediately.
The World Weightlifting Championships at the Olympic TV
The Olympics TV might be the best option of all if you want to stream the World Weightlifting Championships online. Based on my experience so far, this seems to be a channel where you can watch the streams for free (mostly), meaning that you do not even need a VPN subscription. I cannot guarantee anything yet, but it looks promising!

I hope these instructions will help you get to watch all the highlights and the important events for you in the championships online. If you have any further questions or just want to share your thoughts or cheer for one of the contestants, write a comment!
In 2018, the World Weightlifting Championships were arranged in Ashgabat in Turkmenistan. But, if you are looking forward to the next World Weightlifting Championships already, you will have to wait until 2021. That is when the next event will be arranged, and then it will be held in Lima in Peru!
