How to watch Wimbledon Open in Europe with a VPN
You can’t access Eurosport Player’s broadcast for Wimbledon Open in every part of Europe. Similarly, these streaming apps are also not accessible outside the USA. Both, Eurosport Player and OTT services are geo- restricted. But still there is a way to access Eurosport Player and these streaming apps in every part of Europe. You can use a VPN to bypass geographical restrictions.
A VPN works by hiding your IP address. Servers of different VPN services operate throughout the world. These servers are used to route traffic. Consequently, your location is hidden. So, you from anywhere in Europe, you can access all American OTT services and Eurosport Player and watch Wimbledon Open.
When choosing a VPN, keep these things in mind:
- It must have a vast network of servers
- Ensures data privacy
- It ensures fast speed at the time of load on the server.
- It should work on any device.
Confused about which VPN to opt for? My recommendation is ExpressVPN. As the service provider has more 3000 servers in 94+ countries. Further, you can contact support any time, as ExpressVPN offers live chat options. Also, you can test the services for 30 days. Because ExpressVPN offers a 30-day money-back guarantee. With a single-account VPN, you can connect multiple devices so everyone in the family can watch according to their choice.
Above all, ExpressVPN doesn’t record your activity i.e. it keeps zero logs.
You can install and use a VPN by using these simple steps.
- Choose a VPN provider. We suggest ExpressVPN.
- Create a VPN account and choose a plan that suits your needs.
- After you’ve purchased a VPN, download and install a VPN on your device.
- Select an American server, when connecting,
- Go to the streaming site’s website. (Choose a streaming service first like Sling TV, DirecTV Stream,Hulu + Live TV, and FuboTV)
