Premier League 2015-16 from outside the UK
Written by Chinmay Rastogi

August 8 marked the beginning of the 2015/16 season of the Premier League. The Premier League is at the pinnacle of club football, with people from all over the world following all the proceedings with the utmost interest and passion. It is not only the toughest football league of the world but also the most watched and the best of them all. It gives fans the perfect weekend getaway from work as they put on the jersey of their favourite club and either march on into the stadium or tune in the game from their televisions.

People in the UK have many options to watch their favourite team play. Various channels like Sky Sports, BT Sports or Now TV air the games on television. These channels also provide people the provision of streaming the games online without a hassle. Of course, they would need to have an account at whichever channel’s website they want to stream the game from.

But there is a problem that people face quite frequently. As soon as they step out of UK, they are unable to watch the games online despite having an account and having subscribed to the channel. They either get a message that the service is not available in the country they are in, or just an error message which does not explain much about the issue. The problem of being unable to watch the Premier League abroad is frustrating more and more subscribers by the day. Don’t worry, for in this article you will be shown how to watch the Premier League 2015/16 from outside the UK. The method discussed will only work if you have an account with any of the channels in the UK.

How to watch Premier League 2015/16 from outside the UK

Since the main cause of the issue we face here is the channel’s website denying the user access to the stream because it finds it outside of UK, the problem can be solved if the website was tricked into believing that the user is in the UK. There’s no need to scratch your heads with this, for achieving that is a piece of cake. All you need is a software that provides a VPN service.

VPNs, besides providing the data on your system while you browse the internet, help you to mask your identity and geographical location. They not only help you to mask your true location but allow you to choose which location you want to be viewed using the internet from. This service of VPNs is a simple way to watch the Premier League 2015/16 outside the UK. All you need to do is follow these simple steps:

  1. Download and install a VPN from the internet. Most VPNs offer a free version, but the paid versions are not that expensive either.
  2. You can easily find a Server or Location tab on the window of the VPN.
  3. Choose a server from the UK or change your location to the UK. The method varies slightly in all VPN services but it is pretty simple and the VPN is usually self-explanatory.
  4. After changing the location to the UK, open the browser and enjoy streaming!

Note: This method was only for users who have an account with one of the channels that offer the service of online streaming of matches and have a VPN as well. People who want to watch the Premier League 2015-16 abroad but don’t have a subscription with any channel have to subscribe to one of the channels in order to stream the matches online. Choosing a VPN has everything to do with speed, and VPNs like HideMyAss and PureVPN offer high connection speeds to their customers. You can try other VPNs as well.
