Do you want to watch DAZN in France? If you want to save money on your bills while being able to watch more sports than ever, then you for sure do! DAZN is like Netflix of sports. NFL, NHL, NBA, Serie A, Premier League, Ligue 1, Bundesliga, Champions League, and many more, for around €15 per month rather than €70 per month. Or even better, for around €99 for a first year, pretty much paying for your yearly subscription within 2 months. Oh, and it works on pretty much any device meaning that you can watch regardless of where you are.
The problem? It doesn’t work in France.
This is where you have to decide whether you are willing to spend some time to save around €700 per year or if you are okay spending €700 extra per year on your TV subscription that does not offer you all the sports that you want to watch?
If you are willing to read a bit and are patient, keep reading.
Seems easy? Much harder in reality which is why we recommend that you read all of this post.
Firstly, you will neither be able to make a DAZN account or to watch DAZN in France until you complete step 2. Until you do, you will merely be greeted to a message about DAZN not being available in your country.
Making a DAZN account is actually not as easy as it seems. Firstly, your DAZN account needs to be Canadian as while DAZN has an American version now too, that version is only limited to fighting events meaning you are missing out on most of DAZN content.
To make a DAZN account though? You need a Canadian card, and that might be the biggest issue you will have.
Here are some potential solutions to your problem:
Apart from the card issue, making a DAZN account is pretty easy. Just make sure to fill things in to look like you are based in Canada.
Making an account is the hardest step due to the fact you need a Canadian card, but fooling DAZN is the most important step.
A step that will need to be in action, at all times in order for DAZN to work.
So what do you need to do to fool DAZN?
You need to use a VPN which will allow you to change your location without moving.
The problem? Most VPN services don’t work with DAZN.
If DAZN made it easy for users outside of the supported regions to watch DAZN, they would have to deal with enormous pressure from companies with rights to content. That’s why most VPN servers don’t work with DAZN.
That’s where PrivateVPN comes in as one of the only VPN services that work with DAZN, but also as the service that supports the most Netflix regions on the market, while also being one of the most affordable on the market.
By connecting to the right Canadian server, DAZN will see you as someone that’s in Canada. Depending on the app version that you use, you might have to try out connecting to all of them as not all work with DAZN. That will only take a minute though as there are currently 4 Canadian servers available. Otherwise, our new app will tell you which server you should connect to right away.
Doing that will allow you to watch DAZN in France. Except, only in your web browser on your computer. Mobile devices don’t currently support watching DAZN from the web browser which is why there’s also a third step to watching DAZN in France.
If you want to watch DAZN in France on your iPhone, Android, or the Fire TV Stick, you need to take some special actions for each device.
On Apple devices, you first need to sign out of iCloud. You can do that in your Settings. After that, you merely need to make a new iCloud account consisting of your location being in Canada.
That will allow you to download DAZN.
Downloading DAZN on Apple devices isn’t actually that hard, but you need to be careful. If you change your location in your current account, you will lose everything. That’s why it’s important to just make a new account if you want to watch DAZN in France.
On Android devices, you do in fact need to change settings in your account.
On the Amazon Fire TV Stick, you actually need to change your location to be in the US since Canada does not have a dedicated Amazon Fire TV store.
Go to amazon.co.uk assuming your account is based in the UK. Press on Your Account, and go to Manage Your Content and Devices section. There change your region to be in the US.
You then need to deregister your account on your actual device by going into Settings followed by My Account.
That should allow you to download DAZN, however, depending on your current payment method, you might be asked to add an American form of payment. Any virtual card or prepaid card will work.
You wanted to know how to watch DAZN in France, and that’s how.
It’s not that easy, but it’s not meant to be. DAZN makes it hard because they have to. How much is that €700 worth of savings worth to you? That could be an extra holiday.
PrivateVPN? It allows you to bypass those blocks, and with some patience, you will be able to watch DAZN in no time! And the best thing? PrivateVPN supports the most Netflix regions on the market so you are automatically unlocking the most Netflix content possible when you use PrviateVPN.
