In this guide? We go over how to watch ESPN+ in Poland, but also over how to create an ESPN+ account as the chances are that if you are reading is, then that you don’t have an American card. And that’s what you need if you want to watch ESPN in Polska.
Before we get into how to do it, let’s explain why that is.
It’s because there are companies in Poland that already have the right to show a lot of the content ESPN has.
...With sports content typically being sold under an “exclusive” package, that makes it very hard for platforms like ESPN+ to launch in other countries.
The result? ESPN+ is not available in Poland, and since it is not available in Poland, it has to make efforts to block VPN services.
And that’s why you are here searching for how to watch ESPN+ in Poland.
You need to look like you are in the US.
Otherwise, ESPN+ is going to put blocks that will prevent you from watching.
What do you need to look like you are in the US?
A VPN service.
VPN services allow you to change your virtual location, so it looks like you are somewhere else than where you actually are.
Is that it, then?
ESPN+, of course, knows VPN services exist and that it has to make efforts against them to not break rights agreements.
That’s why most VPN services don’t work with it.
And that’s where PrivateVPN comes in as a VPN service with a focus on entertainment, meaning fewer servers than of the competition, but instead servers that work with services like ESPN+.
If you already have an ESPN account, that’s it because the ESPN app which ESPN+ is in is available around the world.
...But most people don’t have an account, which is where the next step comes in.
To sign up for ESPN+, you will need an American card.
That’s because ESPN+ has a card block that prevents people from signing up with other cards.
...In the past, it has worked with Revolut, but there is a far easier method of making it work.
It’s to sign up for ESPN+ via the mobile phone.
Due to the fact that when it comes to mobile devices, it’s both Apple and Google that handle payments meaning that they won’t impose the blocks that ESPN+ has on the website.
The only catch? You will need to change the location of your app store, even though the ESPN app is available worldwide, and we’ll show you how to do it below.
Feel free to sign back into your old account after that is complete.
Have a smart TV? That’s great, except most of them do not support VPN services.
The same applies to most smart TV platforms like Apple TV, Chromecast, and even Roku.
Connect your laptop to a TV via an HDMI if you want to watch ESPN in Polska on a TV.
...Otherwise, get an Amazon Fire TV Stick as it does support VPN services.
Just ordered a Fire TV SticK? Just in case the app was not to be available for download, sign up for a US Amazon account and then download the ESPN app.
If you already have a Fire TV Stick and the ESPN app doesn’t show up, here’s how to change the region of your app store:
That’s how you watch ESPN in Polska, but that’s also how you unblock many other streaming platforms in Poland.
The right VPN server + knowing how to create an account is the key.
