Eurosport and Ziggo got the official broadcasting rights to stream all Wimbledon Open games in the Netherlands this year. Both of these respective services have their own official apps (Eurosport Player is discontinued) that you can access if you are in the Netherlands territory.
In this guide, I will guide you on how to live stream Wimbledon Open 2023 online in the Netherlands for free.
Quick Steps to Live Stream Wimbledon Open 2023 Free in/outside the Netherlands
Since many online streaming apps around the world hold the channels carrying this Grand Slam event this year. For example, ESPN is the official broadcaster in the USA; and to access ESPN, Sling TV, huluTV, DirecTV Stream, fuboTV, and YouTubeTV would be your best options.
Similarly, BBC iPlayer brings you every tournament game for free in the UK.
But the issue with these streaming apps is that they are only operational in their local jurisdictions. For example, the US OTT platforms mentioned above are only operational in the US. Same stands for BBC iPlayer, as you can watch Wimbledon Open on this app while your stay in the UK.
To get rid of geo-restrictions, here are some steps to follow:
- Subscribe to ExpressVPN. A VPN allows you virtually change your location to anywhere in the world. It offers you the servers all over the world. When you connect to the respective server location, you can unblock the service of that specific region. That’s how it works, and it lets you use any app, website, or streaming service globally.
- After subscribing to the VPN, install it on your devices. Conventionally, VPNs are available for every smart device these days. Check out your VPN support team by raising a ticket or connecting to live support for more information.
- Launch the VPN and set your location to the country whose broadcasters you wish to unblock. In the present case, I suggest you connect to the UK server and log in to BBC iPlayer to watch the matches for free.
- Enjoy the games live free of cost.
