If you live in the United States and would like to watch the World Cup, then maybe you have read our earlier article on how to watch the FIFA World Cup online already, where you can read that ESPN has the rights to broadcast from the World Cup. However, if you do not have a cable package with ESPN included, you will not be able to watch the World Cup, neither on TV, nor online.
So, what can you do to watch the World Cup 2014 in the United States, in USA? To watch the FIFA World Cup in USA you can either go and visit a pub nearby and watch it out together with others, or you can watch it using a VPN in your own home. Using a VPN will create a network connection between your computer and a server somewhere else. So, you can for example connect to a server in Canada, which will give you a Canadian IP address, and then you can watch the World Cup matches online on CBC in Canada. You can then connect your computer to a big TV using an HDMI cable, and thus you can watch all the World Cup matches on either your laptop or your TV, all this using a simple VPN connection which only costs about 10 USD a month.

Which VPN provider should you use? There are tons of VPN providers on the market, and you can decide mostly for yourself, but we recommend using either HideMyAss or IPVanish, as both providers have servers in 50 or more nations worldwide, meaning that you can watch live streams from the World Cup on lots of channels worldwide with one simply VPN subscription to any of these providers.
Visit both websites and make a subscription to the provider that sounds like the best to you. Once you have done so you can connect to a server in Canada and watch the World Cup on your computer live broadcasted to you by CBC, or you can connect to BBC or ITV in the UK after connecting to a server in the United Kingdom, and thus watch World Cup 2014 with a British accent.
There are several other ways in which you can use the same subscription to watch the FIFA World Cup in the USA as well, but you can read more about that in our FIFA World Cup 2014 online article.
