RTÉ will be the channel in Ireland showing all the matches from the FIFA World Cup 2014. They have a very nice website where they also make it possible for visitors to watch lots of programs online and enjoy live streams. That is great, but if you try to watch them from outside Ireland, you will be blocked.
In the coming weeks and month there will be thousands of people who want to watch the FIFA World Cup online on RTÉ in Ireland, but due to the geographical block they will not be able to do so. The videos will not start, and that is due to the fact that you are located outside Ireland. The solution to your problem is therefore either to watch the FIFA World Cup on some other channel, or get yourself an Irish IP address to make the Internet believe that you are located in Ireland.
Maybe it sounds scary and complicated to get an Irish IP address, but luckily it is much easier than it sounds. All you need to do is to sign up for a VPN provider, and based on our tests and experience, PureVPN is one of the best VPN providers providing IP addresses in Ireland, and in addition they have the best prices available, especially if you sign up for six months or for twelve months. In addition they have a three day full refund policy if you use less than 500mb of bandwidth before you ask for a refund.
If you first have a PureVPN subscription you can also use it to watch the World Cup on other channels besides RTÉ in Ireland, so you can also watch live matches on BBC in the UK with a UK IP address and so much more. A good investment that you will not regret!
