Bypass the Eleven Sports Region Error on iPhone or iPad

So you signed up to Eleven sports and made a new iTunes account in Taiwan. You followed my guide on How to Watch Eleven Sports Outside Taiwan and you basque in the delight of your new found knowledge.

You got your shiny new Eleven Sports app, started up your VPN and FAIL the “this content is not available in your region” error pops up!

I know how you feel.  Lets skip straight to it, you want to know how to bypass the Eleven Sports iPhone error or the Eleven sports iPad error.

Why wont Eleven sports app work on iPhone or iPad

There is a two factor type of regional protection on the Eleven Sports iPhone or Ipad app this is to stop you trying to bypass the Eleven sports region lock

  1. 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
  2. the eleven sports app also checks what region your phone is in.

How to change the region on your iPhone or iPad

As with most things on the iPhone or iPad. Start in the Settings Menus and navigate to general (Settings > General)

Next, go to Language and Region and select Region from the sub menu (Language & Region > Region)

From here you can select Taiwan, don’t worry your phone language is independent of the regional setting so it will stay in your native language, in my case my region is set to taiwan and the language is set to English.

Your phone will now reboot and the apple logo will pop up. Once complete your region is changed.

Pro Tip Bonus For Best Quality Streaming of Eleven Sports on iPhone or iPad

The BEST thing about Eleven Sports is that only access to the content is behind a regional lock, but the content itself is not.  So, follow this tip for the best possible streaming experience with Eleven Sports on your iPad or iPhone.

  1. Connect your VPN to Taiwan (don’t worry about how fast the connection is as it does not matter as long as you can connect
  2. Once your phones region is set to taiwan, start the eleven sports app
  3. Once the app is open and you can see the list of content DISCONNECT the VPN

You read that last part right.  Once you have connected to the app and can see the content menu you no longer need the VPN.  This means that anything you stream will be as fast as it is served from Eleven Sports or as fast as your ISP bandwidth whichever is lower.
