Watch The Best

< Back to All

August 16, 2016

With every nation's athletes looking to improve their performance and beat the opponents, many people like to catch up with the day's events. What can you do if the event is not being shown by your local TV broadcaster?

If you miss sports commentary from familiar voices, or can't understand why the TV channels in your current country don't seem to care about Handball, there IS a solution!

Sport Cycling

With our partnership with IPVanish, you can not only keep your online experience secure from snooping eyes, you can also make sure you are able to watch the same programmes you do when in other countries.
Obviously you shouldn't take advantage of this unless you actually come from these countries (and in some cases have a TV licence or account set up), but if you come from the USA, then NBC Sports is working. If you're away for the summer, but relish the BBC's coverage with UK commentators, you're luck is in! Should maple syrup and confusion at "hockey" not involving ice be relevant, then Canada's CBC competition coverage should go down a treat. Australians will be happy to discover that Channel 7 will see your connection as being legitimate if you select an Australian server to use in IPVanish. Finally, if TV 2 or ZDF (Norway and Germany respectively) are your channels from home, we've had reports that these two are fully functioning once the VPN connection is made.

If you've multiple nationalities within your family, you could well find that no matter where the event is taking place, be it at the Olympic stadium, Sambódromo or Pontal, you will likely find what you're looking for.
