ESPN? It’s one of the top platforms for watching sports in the world. In this guide? We’ll show you how you can watch it regardless of where you are on the planet, and more importantly for you, how to watch ESPN in Spanish online.
To watch ESPN in Spanish online, first a few steps need to be completed.
And then, of course, you need to change your language to be in Spanish.
Sounds complicated? If you follow this guide, step by step, you will discover that getting ESPN in Spanish online is super simple.
Why does ESPN+ only work in the US?
It goes down to rights to content.
ESPN can’t show all of its content online, to everyone.
That’s because there are platforms in other countries that already have exclusive rights to show certain content ESPN shows in the US.
The result? ESPN doesn’t work outside of the US regardless of where you are on the planet.
This is where changing your location to be in the US, virtually, comes in.
What do you need for that? A VPN.
VPN services allow you to change your location to be somewhere else, without moving.
In this case, you need a VPN with American servers, but also with support for ESPN+.
Why? As due to the fact ESPN doesn’t have rights to show content outside of the US, it has blocks to prevent VPN services from working with ESPN.
And this is where PrivateVPN comes in as a service with focus on entertainment and support for the world’s most known and a little bit less known platforms, with that including ESPN+.
If you want to watch ESPN in Spanish online, and aren’t in the US, that’s the first step.
And PrivateVPN? It comes with a 7-day free trial with no need for a card so that you can test it out for yourself before making a decision on whether you want to keep watching ESPN in Spanish online or whether you perhaps should go for a service like DAZN.
To use ESPN+, you, of course, need an account, which will cost you $4.99 per month which is as great as it gets when it comes to streaming sports, as far as pricing.
...But unlike if you were singing up on Netflix, you need to have a card issued in the US.
There are several ways to go about it:
As far as the second option, here’s how to do it so that you can have an account that lets you watch ESPN in Spanish online.
When you have that done,download the ESPN app from your app store, and sign up or ESPN from there.
If you sign up for an account and a subscription from your phone, it will work because it will be Google that handles the payment, instead of ESPN.
Of course, when signing up for an ESPN account, remember to use an American zip code. (You can find a zip code generator with ease on Google.)
When it comes to Apple devices, instead of changing the location of your app store, you need to create a new account.
Of course, while doing this, make sure to be connected to a ESPN+ server via PrivateVPN.
Once you’ve done all of that, the obvious remains...
You need to switch ESPN to Spanish.
How do you do that?
With ESPN+ open, select the event you would like to watch, and when on it, you will see a small camera gear at the bottom right. If you move your mouse there, you will see an option to choose your broadcast. Now, you will be able to change your broadcast to be in Spanish.
And now, you can watch your favorite sports and leagues whether it be the Serie A, the Championship, or the UFC, in Spanish, online.
To watch ESPN+ on your TV, we recommend you either get an Amazon Fire TV Stick, or an Android TV device. Why? As if you are outside of the US, you obviously need a VPN to watch ESPN, and most TV platforms whether it be the Apple TV, the Chromecast, or even the Roku, do not support VPN services.
The Fire TV Stick does.
...Or you can get an HDMI cable and connect your laptop to a TV.
Really want to watch one of the platforms that don’t support VPN services? You can install a VPN on your router. It’s nothing we recommend as most routers aren’t able to handle VPN services, but it is an option if you really want to do that way.
