If you’re looking for a way to watch Blues TV in the UK so you can follow Birmingham City then this is the guide for you.
Usually, Blues TV will only allow you to watch the matches live if you’re outside the UK but there’s a really simple way you can join in and watch from within the UK.
For this, you’re going to need an app called a VPN from a provider like my recommend one, ExpressVPN.
Although they may sound complicated they’re really not and within just a few minutes you can be watching Blues TV in the UK. I’ll cover this in more detail below though.
The benefit is obvious, you can watch all 3 pm kick-off matches and any matches that Blues TV show live. This includes home and most away games. So read on to find out how you can watch Blues TV in the UK.
How to watch Blues TV in the UK
To watch Blue TV in the UK you’ll need to get yourself a VPN service. A VPN comes as an app you download for your phone, tablet, laptop, computer or even the Amazon Fire TV and Firestick.
A quick search of Google will throw up hundreds of different companies selling VPN services. Not all are suitable for streaming video because they’re too slow. My three top choices for watching Blues TV are:
30-Day Money-Back Guarantee
I recommend you sign up for ExpressVPN. They’ve got a 30-day money-back guarantee so if you can’t get it working, your money is safe – just get a refund.
They’ve also got an offer currently allowing you to get 3-months free on their 12-month package. This saves 49% off paying monthly which allows you to watch the entire season cheaper.
Just choose one of the providers above and then follow the steps below to watch Blues TV in the UK.
How to access Blues TV in the UK:
- Visit the ExpressVPN website, choose a subscription length and sign up for their service.
- Once signed up head over to the ‘Products‘ section and download their app for your device. You can also search your app store for ‘ExpressVPN‘ and install directly that way.
- Open the app and login or activate it when required.
- Click the ‘Selected Location‘ option and then click ‘Netherlands‘.
- Wait for the app to connect or press ‘Connect‘ if it doesn’t connect automatically.
- Once the ExpressVPN app has connected visit the Blues TV website.
If you don’t already have a subscription then you’ll need to sign up for one of the ‘International Passes’. Either the monthly one or the more money-saving annual one which allows you to watch the entire season.
To watch every Birmingham City match on Blues TV then it’s worth taking the 12-Month ExpressVPN package and the Blues TV Annual Pass because doing it this way will save you the most amount of money.
Once you’ve signed up or if you’ve already got an international pass you’ll now be able to log in and watch the matches.
You will need to connect to the VPN every time you want to watch a match. I recommend connecting to the Netherlands but any nearby country outside the UK such a France, Germany or Spain will also be suitable.
What about using iFollow?
If you’ve heard of iFollow then you’ll know it’s the official online streaming service for almost all Championship teams. It’s also used by many League One and League Two teams too.
It isn’t however a requirement for your team to use the iFollow service and Birmingham City has opted not to.
They have instead introduced their own TV service called Blues TV. It essentially works the same as iFollow in that if you’re in the UK you can listen to audio commentary of most matches and if you’re outside the UK you can live stream them.
Using a VPN from ExpressVPN you can unblock the live streams and watch anywhere in the UK.
The beauty of this is you can watch any games played between 2.45 pm and 5.15 pm known as “3 pm kick-offs”, any games that are shown by Sky and any games which fall on holiday days like bank holidays. Ordinarily, you wouldn’t be able to.
To watch Blues TV in the UK you’re going to need one thing;
- A VPN service from a provider such as ExpressVPN
A VPN allows you to alter your location and make it appear as if you’re outside the UK. When using ExpressVPN you will be able to sign up for and watch the International Passes available on the Blues TV website.
This means you’ll then be able to watch any of the Birmingham City games live online on the Blues TV website.
Just click the orange button below to sign up for ExpressVPN. Then download their app and connect to a country outside the UK, eg; the Netherlands.
Once connected head over to the Blues TV website, sign up for an international pass and then enjoy watching all of the Blues games from the comfort of your home in the UK.
