Why wont Eleven sports app work on Android
There is a two factor type of regional protection on the Eleven Sports android app this is to stop you trying to bypass the Eleven sports region lock.
- the eleven sport app checks to see where you are in the world based on your IP address. Your VPN is sufficient enough to get around this
- the eleven sports app also checks what region your android phone is in.

Work in progress. Will update when i get an actual android device to check the specific menu items.
In the Android Settings Menu, navigate to general (Settings > Language and Keyboard)
Next, set your country to Taiwan.
