Want to watch Premier League live in Ireland in the 20/21 season? Both Sky Sports and BT Sports offer what looks like outrageous packages for that. In this guide, we’ll help you watch Premier League live in Ireland, but we’ll also show you how to do it without breaking the bank.
Either DAZN must think you are in Canada, or CBS must think you are in the US.
There’s no other way around it.
Otherwise, the platforms will just place geo-blocks preventing you from watching.
When you make these platforms think you are in the right region, you then need to create an account, and that required a card issued in the right country, but we do have a simple solution for that.
When it comes to making CBS and DAZN think you are in the right country, it goes down to one thing.
Being there virtually.
...And you may already know that you need a VPN for that.
VPN services? They allow you to be somewhere virtually, with a click of a button.
With a catch...
...If you ever tried using a VPN in the past, then perhaps you noticed that just because you connect to a certain region, that it doesn’t mean that a service will be unblocked.
And that’s because platforms like CBS and DAZN also have measures in place against VPN services.
That’s because they have to.
...Otherwise, they would get in trouble.
And this is where PrivateVPN comes in as a service that isn’t going to charm you with thousands of servers, but instead focuses on quality and making sure that entertainment platforms like CBS and DAZN work.
And as far as unblock the platforms, that’s it. Now comes creating an account...
Right now, if you tried to create an account on either of these platforms, in most cases, this would not work.
As both CBS & DAZN have measures to prevent people with cards not issued in the right country to sign up.
We’ve searched for solutions and found a few, but by far the best one? It’s to sign up for CBS or DAZN via the mobile app of these platforms.
Why? As that will allow you to use Google’s and Apple’s payment handling, meaning that you will bypass the geo-blocks.
To do that, you will first need to switch the region of your app store to be able to download CBS Sports and DAZN in the first place.
And of course, if you wish, you can sign back into your previous account after you have done this.
PRO TIP: Make sure not to just change the region of your current account, as that would result in you losing everything.
Whether you want to watch the Premier League live in Ireland or whether looking to stream Hulu, BBC iPlayer, or one of the many platforms PrivateVPN supports, you’ll find out what you can do when you sign for a 7-day free trial with no need for a card.
