In this guide we’re going to show you the quickest and easiest way to watch BT Sport outside the UK.
If you’ve been searching for a way to watch your BT Sport account while abroad then your search is over. We’ve created this guide to show you how you can watch your BT Sport account anywhere in the world.
All you’ll need is a simple app called a VPN that will let you unblock BT Sport to watch from anywhere. Keep reading below to find out how.
BT Sport knows your location. When it sees you’re outside the UK it blocks you from watching even if you have a valid subscription.
It does this by checking your IP Address. An IP Address is a little like a phone number, it is unique to you at the time of connection and it also gives away your location.
A VPN service alters your IP Address to one from another country. When you connect to the VPN service your IP Address changes to one from the UK so rather than blocking you the BT Sport service thinks you’re in the UK and allows you to watch.
What VPN service should you choose
Choosing a VPN service can be incredibly difficult. There are now thousands of different providers.
