Do you want to watch your favorite sports online? DAZN is the best way to do it. Except, it’s not currently possible to watch DAZN in Nigeria.
...Just as it’s not possible to watch the likes of Hulu or Disney Plus in Nigeria.
This guide on DAZN in Nigeria? It will help you unblock all of these, as the steps apply to all.
...And yes, that includes account creation, which so many guides out there miss out on.
But first, let’s talk about why DAZN in Nigeria is not a thing.
Rights to sports content cost.
They cost a lot.
Especially in countries with bigger populations.
And they are also quite hard to get because generally, when rights are acquired, a station or streaming platform acquires exclusive rights meaning the others can’t show it.
That makes it super hard for platforms like DAZN to launch in different countries, and why DAZN is currently at its best in Canada, Italy, Japan, and the US, with Canada offering by far the best experience.
The result of this? You have to search for how to watch DAZN in Nigeria, as when something is not available, the platform needs to make efforts to prevent people from watching. Otherwise, it can get in trouble.
You need to make DAZN think you are in a supported region like Canada, and then you need to create a DAZN account if you don’t have one, which will require getting the right payment card.
Example? If you are signing up for DAZN Canada, you need to get a Canadian card, and so on.
That makes things harder, but we do have a solution to that problem.
And the great thing about DAZN is that once you have an account, you can very easily switch between regions on that one account.
You will need to make yourself look like you are in any of the DAZN regions while, in reality, being in Nigeria.
For that, you will need to change your location virtually.
That’s where VPN services come in.
VPN services? They allow you to change your virtual location.
...However, it’s not quite as simple as connecting to a Canadian server and watching DAZN Canada.
That’s because just as DAZN needs to make it hard for you to watch if in the wrong region, it also needs to make efforts to prevent VPN services from working.
As a result, a lot of VPN services don’t work with DAZN.
And that’s where PrivateVPN comes in as a VPN service that focuses on entertainment, meaning services like DAZN work.
What do you need to do?
...Now the hard part. Creating a DAZN account.
To sign up for Canadian DAZN, you need a Canadian card.
To sign up for American DAZN, you need an American card.
...And so on.
That makes life hard.
To sign up for a DAZN account via your mobile phone via the DAZN app.
As if you do it that way, you will avoid DAZN’s payment blocks as it will be both Google and Apple that will handle the payment.
The catch? You will need to change the region of your app store to download the DAZN app in the first place.
Of course, feel free to sign back into your older account once you have the app.
Naturally, sports are best watched with friends on a big screen.
...But most smart TV platforms like Apple TV, Chromecast, and Roku, do not support VPN services.
To connect an HDMI cable to a laptop and a TV...
...Or get an Amazon Fire TV Device as it supports VPN services.
Just got an Amazon Fire TV Stick? Sign up for an account in a supported region.
If you do already have one, here’s what you need to do:
That’s how to watch DAZN in Nigeria, but it’s also how to watch many other streaming series in Nigeria.
It’s all about connecting to the right server with PrivateVPN and creating an account via the mobile app.
