How to Watch the Bundesliga in Canada

Bundesliga is one of the best leagues in the world and the home of the current Champions League winners, but it’s incredibly hard to watch the Bundesliga in Canada, and matter of fact, in a lot of other places online, around the world.


In this guide...We’ll show you how to make it work⬇️⬇️⬇️.



How to Watch the Bundesliga in Canada

Bundesliga in Canada?


For a very long time, no streaming service had rights to it.


The options were non-existing.


...Even with the help of other streaming services.


Even in regions like the UK, the options were quite limited, requiring the likes of BT Sports, which offers streaming at a hefty price.


But as of the 20/21 Bundesliga season, that is changing. 


In 2019, ESPN+ acquired rights for the Bundesliga. Rights that were set to put Bundesliga on ESPN+ from the end of August 2020. However, due to the current pandemic situation, this is now, of course, slightly delayed. 


...But there is now a way to watch.


The catch?


ESPN+ is only available in the US.



Want to watch the Bundesliga in Canada? Here’s how to get ESPN+ to work in Canada: 



How to Unblock ESPN+ in Canada

ESPN, in a way, makes it easier for you due to the fact ESPN+ doesn’t require you to have unblock the ESPN app as ESPN+ is part of the ESPN app that’s available around the world.


When it comes to services like DAZN, you need to change the location of your app store to be able to download it.


That leaves just two steps.


  1. Make ESPN+ think you are in the US.
  2. Create an ESPN+ account using the right payment method (not as simple as just creating an account.)



Making ESPN Think You Are in the US

To watch the Bundesliga in Canada on ESPN+, you are going to be in the US, virtually.


You may already know that for that, you need to use a VPN.


VPN services? They allow you to change your location virtually, with a few clicks.


But if you ever tried using a VPN, then you know that it’s not as simple as connecting to the right server, because platforms like ESPN+ also have blocks against VPN services.


Why?


As if they don’t, then they can get in trouble.


That’s because the ESPN+ only has the rights to show the Bundesliga in the US.


...And this is where PrivateVPN comes in as a service that focuses on quality rather than quantity, coming with hundreds rather than thousands of servers, meaning it’s able to unblock services like ESPN+.


  1. Sign up for PrivateVPN’s 7-day free trial with no need for a card.
  2. Download the app.
  3. Connect to an ESPN+ server.


And that’s the first step to unblocking the Bundesliga in Canada.


...Now let’s create an ESPN+ Account.



How to Create an ESPN+ Account to Watch Bundesliga in Canada

A method we used to mention a lot in the past was Revolut. 



...But by far, the easiest way to get ESPN+ is simply by changing the location of your app store and signing up for ESPN from the ESPN app, while connected to the right VPN server.


Why does this method work? As it allows you to bypass the card blocks of ESPN’s website.


...As both Apple and Google have their own payment platforms that don’t utilize such blocks, provided you change the region of your app store.


Let’s go over how to do it⬇️:



Creating an Account on Apple Devices

  1. Sign out of your iCloud account.
  2. Create a new account based in the US.
  3. While connected to PrivateVPN, turn on the ESPN app.
  4. Sign up for an ESPN+ account.


Of course, if you wish, you can sign back into your previous account after you have done this.


PRO TIP: Make sure not to change the region of your current account, as that would result in you losing everything.



Creating an Account on Android Devices

  • On Android devices, first, connect to an ESPN+ PrivateVPN server.
  • Open up your Play Store and press on the 3-bars on the top-left of the screen.
  • Click on Account.
  • You will see an option to change your region to be in the US.
  • Update your payment information.
  • Go back to Account and select your new region.
  • Sign up for ESPN+ via the ESPN app.



How to Watch Bundesliga in Canada on a TV

Of course, sports are best enjoyed on the big screen.


Whether you rock a projector like the BENQ TK850 or whether you watch on a TV.


...The issue? That most Smart TV platforms as entertainment systems like Apple TV, Roku, and Chromecast, don’t support VPN services. 


The easiest solution is to simply connect a laptop to a TV via an HDMI cable.


The best method? To get an Amazon Fire TV Stick, which supports VPN services.



That’s How to Watch the Bundesliga in Canada

Want more than just the Bundesliga?


The great thing about this guide that this exact method will allow you to unblock many other services with the help of PrivateVPN.


...But you’ll find that out when you sign up for PrivateVPN’s 7-day free trial.
