How does a VPN work?
If you are wondering how ExpressVPN is able to unblock Kayo Sports in the UK, it is actually very simple.
Kayo Sports knows whether you are in Australia or not by looking at your IP Address. This is a small bit of code which is transmitted whenever you visit a website from your home internet connection.
But a VPN changes your IP Address when it reroutes your data through one of its servers. And if that server happens to be in Australia, it will give your internet data an Australian IP address.
So, when Kayo Sports receives your data, it sees an Aussie IP Address and assumes that you are in Australia. It therefore lets you watch everything as usual.
