TF1 and beIN Sports will broadcast the FIFA World Cup in France. How can you watch the streams online? Is it possible to stream the matches from abroad?
France is one of the big favorites to win the FIFA World Cup in Russia, but it will not be easy. Among the other favorites, we find Brazil, Germany, Spain, and Argentina. But, how can you watch the different FIFA World Cup matches online?
In France, the matches will be broadcasted by TF1 and beIN Sports. As you probably know already, TF1 is a free channel to stream online, while beIN Sports require a subscription. If you want to watch all the matches online, make sure to have an active beIN Sports subscription, and you should be ready to go.
But, how can you watch the FIFA World Cup matches online on French TV if you live outside France? That is a harder question, but it can still be solved.
As you visit the TF1 and the beIN Sports website, they check your IP address to find out where you are located. If they discover that you are outside France, you will be blocked from certain content, like the FIFA World Cup streams. To fix this, a French IP address is needed.
The best way to get a French IP address is by using the VPN services of ExpressVPN. They have several servers in France, and with an active subscription you can also watch BBC/ITV in England online, you can watch American Netflix, and you can use the subscription for lots of other cool stuff as well.
- Visit the ExpressVPN website.
- Download their program.
- Install the program, open it, and connect to a server in France.
You now have a French IP address, and you should be ready to watch the FIFA World Cup on TF1 and beIN Sports online, also outside France.
Do not forget that ExpressVPN has a 30-day full refund policy, meaning that you can get your money back if you do not like the program, or want to cancel your subscription.
