Can I watch Euro 96 online if I'm out of the country?
Want to relive the magic but you're out of the UK right now? Not to worry, we’ve got you covered.
If you pay for your TV license but you’re abroad for this glorious nostalgia-fest, then annoyingly your domestic on-demand services won’t work – ITV will know where you are because of your IP address (boo!). You'll be blocked from watching it, which is not ideal if you’ve got a hankering to see England spank Netherlands 4-1.
But assistance is on hand. To get around that, all you have to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and won't automatically block the service you've paid for. All the info going between is entirely encrypted – and that's a result.
There are plenty of good-value options out there, including:
1. ExpressVPN (inc. 30-day, money-back guarantee)
FourFourTwo’s tech stablemates TechRadar love its lightning-quick connections, security you can trust, and the fact it works with Android, Apple, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, PS4 plus plenty more.
It also comes with that money-back guarantee, has 24/7 support, is currently available for a 49% discount and with three months free to make your away days even more profitable than Crystal Palace’s.
2. Nord VPN (inc. 30-day, money-back guarantee): a cheaper option; its cheapest package current averages at a mere £2.29 per month.
3. IPVanish (inc. seven-day money-back guarantee): slightly more expensive but supports up to 10 devices, and can be paid for every three months if required.
