If you’re looking for a way to watch Hibs TV in Scotland or throughout the UK then this is the guide for you.
In this guide I’m going to show you the incredibly easy way you can watch Hibs TV in Scotland or the rest of the UK in just a few simple steps. Within minutes you can be set up and running and watching Hibs TV from the comfort of your home.
Watching Scottish football can be difficult. If you don’t have access to certain networks or you’re on the move a lot then finding decent coverage of Hibs matches can be almost impossible.
That’s why Hibs TV exists but unfortunately it’s restricted to watching from outside the UK only. If you’re in the UK you’ll only get access to audio commentary.
Below I’m going to show you how you can unblock Hibs TV and watch in Scotland or the rest of the UK.
Why is Hibs TV blocked in the UK
Hibs TV is blocked in Scotland and the UK for a variety of reasons. This means if you’re in Scotland or elsewhere in the UK you can’t watch the matches live.
Unlike those abroad who can watch actual live coverage of Hibs matches, you’ll only get access to audio commentary.
Strangely the price isn’t all that different with a Scotland / UK audio-only subscription costing £59.99 per year or £5.99 per month and the international video package costing just £89.99 per year or £8.99 per month.
Take for example the Hibernian vs Molde match. It states that there is live audio for UK subscribers and live video for international ones.
Thankfully you can unblock Hibs TV in Scotland and the UK. To do this you’ll need to get a VPN app. There are many different providers but my recommendation is ExpressVPN.
A VPN is a completely legal privacy tool that lets you disguise your location which can make you appear in another country. The result is unblocked Hibs TV allowing you to watch the matches live. Below I’ll show you how easy it is.
How to watch Hibs TV in Scotland and the UK
To watch Hibs TV in Scotland or the UK you’ll need to get a VPN app. These are offered by hundreds of different companies and cost a couple of pounds per month.
I recommend using ExpressVPN because they’ve got a 30-day money back guarantee and if you subscribe for the year you can get 3-months completely free on top. However, any of these three are suitable so just pick one:
Once you’ve selected one of the above providers just follow the steps below.
I’m using ExpressVPN in my example but it’s much the same with the other providers too, only their app will look a little bit different.
How to watch Hibs TV in Scotland and the UK:
- Visit the ExpressVPN website, choose a subscription length and sign up for their service.
- Download their Windows or Mac app from the Products area of their website or their Android, Apple or Amazon app from your regular app store by searching ‘ExpressVPN’.
- Open the app and login or activate it. The activation code can be found in the ‘My Account’ area of the ExpressVPN website.
- Press Choose Location and then press Netherlands*.
- Wait for the app to connect or press Connect if it doesn’t automatically.
- Visit the Hibs TV website.
You should now sign up for the International Package that’s available on the Hibs TV website.
Once you’ve signed up you’ll be able to watch any of the live matches shown on the Hibs TV website. You’ll need to connect to the VPN each time to watch.
* You should connect to the nearest location outside the UK. For example the Netherlands, France, Germany or any other nearby country. This will give you the best possible speeds so you don’t experience any buffering or lagging.
How does a VPN work and is it legal
VPN services are completely legal. Their intended purpose is to allow you to protect your online privacy.
Part of how a VPN allows you to protect your privacy is by letting you disguise your location to appear somewhere else.
This is how a VPN allows you to unblock certain services blocked in Scotland and the UK.
Hibs TV does state that it is against their terms & conditions to use any kind of VPN service while accessing their service and you may have your account banned for doing so.
That said, VPN use itself is not illegal and is a legitimate way of protecting your online privacy. This stops people from snooping on what you’re doing on the internet and also stops websites from tracking your activity online.
Conclusion: How to watch Hibs TV in Scotland and the UK
You can unblock and watch Hibs TV in Scotland and across the rest of the UK using a simple app called a VPN.
I recommend using ExpressVPN because they’ve got a huge 30-day money back guarantee. This gives you plenty of time to test the service to see it working. If you can’t get it working then just get your money back.
They’ve also got a promotion at the moment giving you 3-months free if you sign up for their annual package. That saves you up to 49% off the regular price which is well worth it if you want to watch the entire season of Hibs TV.
You can get ExpressVPN by clicking the button below. Once you’ve signed up, download their app for your device and open it. Press Choose Location and then select a country other than the UK, for example the Netherlands.
Once the app has connected head over to the Hibs TV website and sign up for their ‘International’ package. You can now watch all the Hibs TV games in Scotland or across the UK.
