What is the Premier League?

The English Premier League (EPL) is arguably the biggest and best football league in the world. It is certainly the most watched, with broadcasts entering an estimated 640 million homes across the globe. It doesn’t travel well though due to tight restrictions on broadcast rights. We’ve all been there, you pack your iPad for your summer holiday thinking “i’ll watch the game by the pool” and your Sky Go subscription blocks it.

Don’t worry, all is not lost, there are loads of ways to Watch the Premier League online.  But sometimes you may need to start using a VPN or even a DNS service.

Firstly, you need is a device of some sort such as a laptop, smart phone or tablet. Once you get your device ready you can unblock all of the premier league games from anywhere in the world.

This guide will not only tell you the best places to get 100% reliable online football streams but also give you reviews on the products you need. No more blind testing, this is the Number 1 guide on the internet for getting live premier league football streams cheaply, reliably and legally!

Firstly, here are a few things to remember. Outside of the UK and unlike the British Broadcasters Sky Sports and BT Sport, 3pm games do not fall under the FA’s black out rule. This means if you get a subscription from outside the UK, you are more likely to be able to get every single game in any one season, or at least 6 games a week including one 3pm game.

Step One: Get an Online Premier League Service

Before you do anything, you need to find a service that suits you. This year there are more services than ever, some that are just sports, but more this time around that offer other content you might like such as films and tv shows.

It important to stress that this guide relates only to Reliable, Online and more importantly legal EPL subscriptions available. We will never advise, recommend or comment on illicit streams on UnlockworldTV.

Lets take a look at 2017/18 Premier League Streaming Subscriptions. I’ve put them into a neat little table for you, but I’ve provided a more in depth rundown of each service after that.

^Eurosport is available in most countries. Sign up wherever and simply change the VPN region to Romania to Watch Premier League
*Minimum based on normal programming (126) plus at least 1 3pm game over the course of the season. 
**Minimum based on a guaranteed 6 games per week, plus addition of NBCSN. More games may be shown, but no less.

So before explaining each of these services, you should decide whether you want to:

1) watch football, cricket or any other sport the same way you do in the UK, or;
2) get a new and very much cheaper and more extensive subscription to a foreign (but english commentary) subscription package

If you fall into category 1 above, then life is pretty simple for you from here on in. First, download the Sky Go app (assuming you re already a sky subscriber) and set up your device with your account

If you are not a Sky subscriber you can get a [easyazon_link identifier=”B01HOZKYGS” locale=”UK” tag=”httpwwwunlock-21″ cart=”y”]NOW TV Box with 1 Week Sports[/easyazon_link]

from Amazon, of you can download the app on your device of choice and simply buy the gift cards. Like this one:

[easyazon_link identifier=”B00T6PNNIQ” locale=”UK” tag=”httpwwwunlock-21″ cart=”y”]1 Week NOW TV Sky Sports Pass[/easyazon_link]

If you don’t have sky and the game you want happens to be on BT Sport who you are a customer of, then you can get the BT Sport app on your device too.

If you are more of a Match of the Day kind of lad, then you already know about the BBC iPlayer app which is outstanding, but as a back up tvplayer is a good app for watching live UK TV.

If you are more about option 2 – that is getting a better and cheaper subscription then read on.

Watch The Premier League with UK providers or Alternative Providers from Outside the UK

With so much choice there is no point trying to find free online EPL streams or any other type of live football stream. They are normally unreliable and exclusively on the wrong side of the law. The BBC recently wrote an article stating as such. The options below are some of the more popular choices for people who want to have all the games, or even as a back up subscription. The cheapest streaming package costs less than a round of drinks for the WHOLE YEAR!.

Is there really any point to searching for a reliable stream two minutes before the big game? Just get your live football streaming from one of these official Premier League partners and save yourself a bundle of time and hassle.

Without further ado I give you…

The Best Premier League Subscriptions from around the world

ProviderLocationVisit ProviderAbout
Eleven SportsTaiwanEleven SportsTaiwans recently acquired offering. Eleven Sports promises cross platform streaming for the princely sum of £16 or $21.45 for the entire year! Thats not bad now is it! A minimum of 6 games will be streamed per week for this remarkably low price making this the newest and best value proposition on the web. Eleven sports is available in a few countries, most notably Singapore. If you happen to live in Singapore, make sure you sign up at the Taiwan site instead as it is 1/12th of the price. (You read that correctly).
HotstarIndiaHotstarIndia's offering can be had from an "all sports" package of 20 british pence per day, or for the simple price of £8.20 (depending on the currency rate) you can get all 380- EPL games streamed to your device of choice. For the 2016/17 season, the price has been increased to £2.40 per month. All games available with english commentary. You can pay with credit card only outside of india. I used Amex, no problem. All you need now is a DNS or VPN provider. There is no longer any delay but the football has moved from the Starsports site to the Hotstar site and app and site.
EurosportRomania^EurosportEveryone knows Eurosport they are huge all over the world. What people donÕt know id that in Romania, they acquire the rights to the Premier League. Eurosport is easy to get as you can sign up anywhere and use a VPN to switch region.
BeIN Sports MENAUAEBeIN Sports MENABased in the UAE this high quality sports provider offers full HD streaming of the Premier League amongst many other sports and competitions. As of November 2014, they have also had the ban lifted from the FA and can resume broadcast of someÊ3pm (or Mecca Time) games from the Barclays Premier League., normally around 3 You can pay via credit card or paypal and all games available have english and arabic commentary.
BeIN Sports NZNew ZealandBeIN Sports NZBased in the UAE this high quality sports provider offers full HD streaming of the Premier League amongst many other sports and competitions. As of November 2014, they have also had the ban lifted from the FA and can resume broadcast of someÊ3pm (or Mecca Time) games from the Barclays Premier League., normally around 3 You can pay via credit card or paypal and all games available have english and arabic commentary.
Fubo TVUSAFubo TVFubo TV started as a simple football streaming service and has now expanded to show pretty much all major leagues and as of the end of last season this also includes the Premier League. It has native apps on pretty much all platforms and will also allow you to stream on two devices simultaeously.
Sling TVUSASling TVSling TV was the original cord cutting service. Its ben through some iterations but Istl think its pretty cool. Again, this is not only a sports , but a general live TV pacakge. So you will be picking up a lot of sports and live US tv.
DirecTV NowUSAFuboDirecTV NowDirecTV Now is the latest comcast offering and I like it. Its quite expensive but for a full on streaming service its pretty sweet. I liked it more when I had the crrazy $35 bundle but hey, can't win them all!
Playstation VueUSAPS VuePlaystions underrated cord cutting service with a more a la carte style. I still think its criminal this isnt available outside the USA natively but, we are on UnlockWorldTV so lets not let that get in the way
Now TVUKNow TVNow TV is the UK streaming parter of Sky TV. Most (not all) tv can be streamed and its is very good value. Sports as always is expensive as you can see in the above table. The coverage however, is top notch. However, if you want large volumes of games, this probably isnt going to help you as it offers the lowest number of games per season at the highest cost

Step Two: Sign up with a VPN or DNS Provider

I already mentioned that some of the providers above are outside of the UK. As with most premium entertainment content on the internet, there are restrictions on where it can be viewed. This protection is called geoblocking. That same error message you saw at your hotel in Turkey whilst trying to watch Sky Sports 2, is the same message someone in India gets when they try to watch Star Sports in Jamaica. It just doesn’t work.

Unless that is, if you have a VPN Provider, or even a DNS provider. If you aren’t sure on the differences or their suitability, have a look here here. For most people the choice comes down to simply, do you want speed, security or both. Speed only means a DNS service would be better, such as Overplay, although PureVPN also offers a free DNS account with its VPN packages now too (called HDX streaming)). A DNS means your IP address is hidden but your own bandwidth is used. With a VPN you are hidden, encrypted and you use the bandwidth of the VPN provider instead. This means the further away you are from the source material, the slower the connection e.g. accessing BeIN Sports in New Zealand from England you would be lucky to stream 100 minutes of football error free.

Choosing a VPN or DNS

UPDATE 15 March 2015 see this link for excellent Pure VPN results

UPDATE 5 May 2015 see the following video for how easy it is to watch with IPVanish

Whichever service you choose, all good value ones are located outside of the USA and UK. So you will need a reliable VPN or DNS service. Below are some tried and tested providers.

Below is a summary table detailing recommended VPN providers for each football service as tested and/or verified by unlockworldtv.

Rank ProviderVisit

A DNS will also work for most of the services I mentioned but not all work with Hotstar. For Hotstar use SmartDNS proxy. For everything else, take your pick.

Rank ProviderVisit
1smart dns
2smart dns

Step Three: Download your Free VPN software

All VPN providers will supply free VPN software. The good thing about the ones mentioned above is that they all have software for iOS, PC, MAC, Android and even DDwrt routers. Just download the free VPN software direct from the VPN provider, install it, choose your server and click connect. Anyone can do it!!

All of the providers will give you software for all your devices and all the VPN providers I mentioned will also let you log in on more than one device at a time. I tested IPVanish recently and had Star Sports running on both my Mac and iPhone simultaneously.

Step Four: Download your Premier League Providers software

If you choose to go for BeIN Sports or Star Sports and with to use an Android device, then head on over to my APK pages and download the software for free. If you want to download the software on your iOS device then its simple and free too. Just follow my my guide here.. Remember to change the country to Egypt or India and make sure you follow it on a PC or MAC (not a tablet or mobile device) and you can get all the software easily from the App Store and you don’t even need a credit card. Just a valid email address.

The APKs

if you need them just google them! 60 second job!

Step Five: Go to your Fridge and get a beer

Enjoy your Premier League subscription with your VPN service and brag to your mate that you read it all here and saved a fortune on your monthly subs!!

Step 6: Think About Streaming it to that Big Ol’ TV!

Grab a Chromecast and watch your mobile stream on your tellybox

Premier League Football Online Streaming Guide for VPN

Editor's Rating:

155 thoughts on “Watch Premier League live online”

  1. Hey, so Ive been looking into options for the new season.

    It looks like Hot Star is still only £11 for the year and £2 a month, amazing, and you get a lot of TV content.

    However I am concerned with the delay I keep reading about, some people suggesting there is up to 5 mins of delay?! that would be terrible.

    I can see in the comments this may have been addressed has there been any confirmation on this?

  2. we don’t deal with pirate streams on this site so any comments recommending any will never see the light of day here.
    However, you could simply get Hotstar app, subscribe and use SmartDNSProxy its costs around £2.50 per month but is legit, 380 games per season streamed from India using the world feed

  3. Hi
    I bought an Amazon, ‘fully Kodi loaded’ Firestick; and, I also bought a years IP vanish subscription.
    Like most of us here, I want to watch Premier league football, that’s why I was (badly?) advised
    to purchase the Amazon Firestick.

    Unfortunately, I’m not a technical person, I have not been able to watch EPL football matches
    because, there does not seem to be enough information around to enable novices like me to
    be able to set things up properly. Can anyone tell me where I can find an “idiot proof” set of
    instructions on how I can get my Firestick to allow me to watch Sky Sports and BT channels so
    that I can enjoy my footie, without being taken to the cleaners by aforesaid parties?


  4. If you like Fubo and the range of sports try different servers on your vpn or switch to a dns proxy.

    If it’s pure number of games and reliability hen this season seems to suggest BeIN sports MENA is the best.

    For price it’s Hotstar. But they have had some technical difficulties since the start of the season with their apps which is not helpful

  5. I’m looking for a subscription service to watch the EPL.

    Can anyone recommend the most reliable?

    I have tried FuboTV but even using a VPN it was buffering all the time and the quality was poor.


  6. HotStar seems easiest with VPN for me
    There is an app for iphone / ipad
    You can set up an India App Store ID and pay 200 Rupees a month on subscription through apple (£2.40)
    i got Indian itunes gift cards from the link below as the app store would not accept my credit card (UK card)

    [[spam link removed]]

    You pay a slight premium for the gift card vs face value but it is a premium of pennys not pounds
    $43 a year for the HotStar (Including premium on itunes card)
    +$7 a year for a VPN

    that $50 all in. every premiership game with English commentary

  7. Hi, Just a heads up. I signed up for the eurosport in Romania but it doesnt give you the option of switching to english commentary. So you end up stuck with the Romanian one.

  8. Hi, I’m trying to buy a subscription for this season – I tried hotstar but am struggling to set up via Google play gift card. Has anyone done this successfully?

    Also, bein sports connect doesn’t seem to offer that many of the games, has anyone tried this?


  9. Hi there. Last season I had Overplay with Beinsports. Found it was buffering constantly, and I had the VPN to Saudi Arabia. What’s the best setting for Bein? Anyone got any over VPN providers they could recommend, along with where I should point my VPN? Thanks

  10. hello,i am from srilanka.i want to watch epl matches.i use smartdnsproxy.but i try signup in hotstar premium account,error come.i am using visa card.but i dont have american or amex card.please help me how to get hotastar premium membership?

  11. Did you restart all your devices? I used smartdnsproxy just fine. If you were using a browser try in incognito mode. Lots of sites use more and more tricks to ascertain location

  12. fubo tv didnt work with Overplay’s DNS, I cant watch EPL matches using it, they register my IP address as UK

  13. Thanks so much for your guide.

    The solution in the end was to use entropay for bein- revolut simply wouldn’t work.

    Thanks again.

  14. Hi,

    Tried to sign up for Bein sports tonight using your method and it said there was a problem with my payment, It didn’t specify what the problem was. I have a Bein sports account but no active subscription, I was on an Egyptian server according to my VPN, Trying to subscribe to a full monthly pass and pay with a revolut card

    Any ideas please?

  15. Hi i have a friend with a bein sports box and his subscription has ran out and wants to renew it for this season how do i go about renewing it for him?

  16. Excellent News John, glad I could help. Please could you reply to this and let me know the method of payment you used and which VPN service or DNS service you used? That would help me write the guide to help others 🙂 Please feel free to share this site with your friends 🙂

  17. OMFG – I’m in and I’ve got the Derby pitch on my screen in glorious picture quality on channel 3 😀

    Thanks so much mate!!

    I hadn’t realised there was already a option when BeIn USA ask you for your provider!

    OK, now I’m happy – just need 3pts 😉

    Cheers! 🙂

  18. Fubo is excellent and yes you get Bein connect and all of its “overflow” programming. There are five championship games on today there too thanks to them not having to fill slots with EPL games

  19. Had a look at Fubo – they claim to carry BeIn USA but currently at least, they only appear to carry one BeiN English channel and the equivalent in Spanish.

    I think I saw a note on their site claiming to enable you to view BeIn Connect channels (presumably that means all of the BeIn USA channels rather than just one as now) from your Fubo login sometime soon but I can’t see evidence of that in reality yet …

    There’s no EPL games on there for sure but it’s chock full of Italian and Spanish games – again ………

    Picture quality on the other hand is super and trounces what BeIn Arabic are serving up and beats Eleven Sports too…

    I suspect there’s been a purposeful move by the EPL/EFL to scatter the rights all over the place so it’s an even bigger ballache than usual to see the games – rising demand meets tighter supply as is the usual British rip-off way …

    I’ll have a look at the Hotstar stuff but I’m almost onto two hands here for the amount of trial accounts I’ve got already …

  20. I had a look at – interesting as long as it’s not just a scam site, I’ve never heard of it …

    They appear to carry BeIn USA:

    That seems to have two EFL matches shown live today though the times are who-knows-what timezone but as they’re 2.5 hours apart, I’m guessing that’s one regular 15:00 game here and the Villa game at 17:30 …

    May be worth a punt …

  21. @ Jim – Yes, cheers mate – unfortunately Eleven Sports aren’t showing the Derby v Villa game live, they’ve chosen to show Serie A matches instead (really???) but they’re showing the recorded game at 10:00 our time on Sunday morning so that’s something at least …

    Presumably they’re only showing it at all because Sky have it as their 17:30 Saturday game (up against Leicester v Arsenal – thanks …) otherwise they’d be showing nowt as usual …

    Absolutely eff-all EFL stuff on BeIn as usual but perhaps that situation may change once the Olympics is over …

    All in all, it looks like Saturday 15:00 kick off EFL games are a total washout. We’re never going to see them but the games on at other times have a small chance of being seen although this week’s full mid-week schedule was completely ignored by both sites and even Channel 5 (assholes) in the UK too so that doesn’t bode well …

    Still mystified as to how these guys can’t recognise the demand from fans of clubs like Villa and Newcastle – it will actually have increased once we dropped out of the Plastic League and we’re all willing to pay for it but hey ……..

    If someone’s cracked how to get registered at Hotstar without an Indian cc then I’m all ears ………


  22. Try switching your VPN off after you have signed in to Eleven. I largely agree PLP was a gift and hard to get to that. The option I have not covered on the site yet is it’s $10 a month with an extensive coverage. Also Hotstar has all the games. Most of these cheap digital services are unfortunately optimised for mobile and tablet meaning large screen resolution is a Huge let down

  23. Kodi is woeful imo – typical “open source” carp but I’m a MS dev so … 🙂

    I’ve had English commentary for every game I’ve seen on BeIn but you have to select the audio option and understand that the studio coverage will always be in Arabic …

    Last weekend it looked like every game was on but I didn’t take that much notice and the schedule was split up Sat-Mon so perhaps not such a normal schedule if there is such a thing anymore in the era of the Plastic League …

    I’ve just looked at the MU game coverage now on BeIn via ExpressVPN and it’s the usual pixelated carp. I switched to ElevenSports via ExpressVPN and it’s somewhere between SD/HD broadcast quality, i.e. no comparison in PQ between the two …

    The problem with ElevenSports though of course is that there’s basically no channels, they’ve got one or two things showing at any one time (please feel free to enlighten me if otherwise) so unfortunately it’s, at best, a useful backup service to something else but I’m really not sure that BeIn is the premium service I’ll take cos the video is basically no better than a good public stream and at $20pm that’s not good enough …

    I can’t believe the *GULF* in content and presentation standard with these latest options vs PLP last season, it couldn’t be any wider, it’s such a backwards step …………

  24. Hi

    I’m getting confused!

    Messed around with various things through Kodi on Saturday and decided it was a waste of time and would be better to pay for streams. Went to get a Premier League Pass to find it had gone and started investigating the other options.

    Paid for a day of sport on BEIN Connect for Sunday as didn’t want to risk the full year and seemed to get a reasonable stream when tested for the games that were on. (I’m using the Getflix service to change my location)

    Doing this all through the web browser on a PC and it seems, of the 17 channels online, that only 11,12 and 13 are in English. The TV schedule for this weekend is (all on CH11 except one saturday 3pm game on 12):

    Friday: Man Utd/Soton (the only game)

    Saturday: (4 of the 7 games) The early game and late games (Stoke/Man City and Leicester Arsenal) at 3pm game (Watford/Chelsea and Swansea Hull).

    Sunday (both games): Sunderland/Boro and West Ham/Bournemouth

    So that’s not bad for the $150 a year, but to be honest I only want Spurs games, so unless they are showing all games it’s not going to be a service that works for me.

    Someone above mentions they got all the games on BEIN. If that is the case, how did you access the content?

    I guess it’s gong to be a week or two into the season before we get some clarity.


  25. Hi,

    Thanks for the great update, just for clarity, if I subscribe to Bein and a VPN, I can then stream via my android box if I download the bein apk?

    Anyone running bein from an android box?

    Many Thanks

  26. John – if you pick this message up – elevensport Singapore/Taiwan are advertising that Derby v Villa game is being streamed this weekend.


  27. Hi Jim.

    Yes – all sorted now that download firefox browser re audio.

    Also – now on firefox the buffering has stopped via server in UAE on purevpn.

    Picture quality is bit ropey but £15 for prem games, fa cup and champ league is pretty tidy.

    Good luck to villa – been there many times as a gooner – big club, your chairman f**ked you right up.

    Eleven sport singapore/tiawan showing many football league game this season – perhaps check them out. tiawan stream works out pretty cheap each month.

    Thanks for help – take it easy mate

  28. I’m watching in a browser on a PC mate – dunno about you but if I hover the mouse over the video window then options pop up in the bottom right to change the audio as described …

    BeIn was rubbish for me, pixelated and buffering, initially on Overplay SmartDNS but after switching to Getflix and back to Overplay it was improved with slighty better quality and virtually no buffering.

    I took the ExpressVPN trial yesterday and BeIn is the same on that via their Egypt server – just about watchable video and no buffering to speak of …

    I’m watching the Cit£h game and listening to the Villa game via radio ffs – at least we’re winning again lol though that probably makes it worse …

  29. Hi Jim – downloaded fire fox ( opposed to chrome) and now have english commentary option. Perfect – as talk sport two minutes in front was not great.

    Thanks for all you help – well happy now have prem/champ league at affordable price.

    Advice on purevpn servers/speed would be great.

    Warm regards and thanks again


  30. Hi John,

    Thanks – I am paying $20 a month package. looked into what you stated – unfortunately unable to find any audio options . Advice ? Got talk sport on on the TV – but its two minute in front. F**king annoying.

    Also using paid version of purevpn and connected to server in UAE and boy its slow/buffing. Any advice on faster server ?

    Thanks for all your advice


  31. Jim – assuming you’re talking about BeIn Sports, the studio/pre-match/interval stuff is always in Arabic but hover over the video window and there’s options for Audio: ENG and Audio: ARA …

    During the game, it should switch as you change that but outside of the game it won’t make a difference, it’ll always be in Arabic 🙂

    Be advised that changing the audio language often makes the player crash in my experience – it’s best, again, in my experience, to change it when it is initially buffering but before the video actually shows 🙂

    That’s on the “full” ($20pm) package – I can’t answer for the lesser “Sports” one (that actually loses you channels 12+ !!)

    HTH lol

  32. Finally – does Beinsport Uae showing premiership games. If so – how many does it show as not coming on on their Tv guide ?

    Thanks for advice previously .

  33. Hi All.

    Thank for advice – switched server in Egypt and payment was accepted. Happy days. Last question (hopefully) is it it possible to obtain English commentary. Currently on channel four to watch man city game but its in Arabic. Is there channel in English or a way of switching commentary in their website ? If i put the radio on – its normally one minute in front which makes it highly annoying – as you know the goal before the stream ?

    Any info would be much appreciated


  34. If I’m being a tard and it’s there but I just can’t spot it then happy days but all I see is recorded EPL games and a sprinkling of other live stuff – perhaps they’ll have their act together in the coming days/weeks …

    Fingers crossed – I repeat the point though, how can nobody see the yawning gap between supply and demand here??!!

    EPL is everywhere but EFL is nowhere lol – I know the EPL is the shiniest by far but it’s not like there isn’t money in everyone else’s pockets too – I couldn’t give a toss about commentary, just stream the video ffs! 🙂

  35. I’m literally watching Eleven Sports right now and they just advertised EFL 2016/17 “All Season Long” their words not mine lol I don’t know whats going on

  36. Already looked mate – nothing there apart from last weekend’s EPL games :/

    You’d think some bright spark somewhere would realise there’s 100,000s of AV & NU fans alone who are being starved of what they’ve been used to and would fork out cash to see the games eh??

  37. IIRC, I couldn’t use my Capital One card to sign up for BeIn but my (main) HSBC card did work – I have no idea why that would be unless I’d told my bank to allow foreign usage on the card when travelling abroad (SE Asia) …


    PS: A full EFL Championship roster playing tonight and all I can watch is the zzzzzzzz-worthy plastic “CL” with the even plasticer Man Cit£h as usual ffs – heartbreaking … This is gonna be a very long season for 100,000s Villa and NU fans – there’s absolutely fook all out there, not even a highlights show from Channel 5 ffs!

  38. OK – Will give it a try. Thanks for speedy reply. Warm regards. Ps – to confirm starsports is a no go this season for EPL ?

  39. UnlockWorldTV – great website mate many thanks for sharing this great information. Wonder if you could help me with BeInsport uae. Able to access the website so know that my vpn is getting through their filters but when I go to pay monthly subscription – its stated problem with payment. I made up a address inTunisia but as there is no paypal option – wondering if they are sussing me out with my billing address on my credit card. Any info would be appreicated. Jim

  40. OK, well I couldn’t wait so I took the ExpressVPN 30-day trial and bagged the Eleven Sports “Premium” package that supposedly includes EFL content for less than £20 (lol) and that appears to work real well.

    I’m getting the recorded Arsenal v Liverpool game in decent quality (sub SD broadcast quality but better than a public stream by far) with no buffering at the moment – have to wait and see what it’s like when streaming a live game of course …

    I had a scoot through their schedule for the week and I see zero EFL content, including this weekend coming so that doesn’t bode well but for £20pa it looks a good backup at the very least to BeIn at that price though you’ve gotta factor in the ExpressVPN cost too of course …

    Out of interest, I tried BeIn via the ExpressVPN Egypt server (there’s no UAE/Saudi server options …) and it worked fine – same quality as before, i.e. not quite as good as the ElevenSports recorded game …

    Oh and BTW, before all that I tried switching my Overplay SmartDNS to USA for my Arabic BeIn sports and got region locked – bugger 🙂

    Cheers for all the help and different options here – I guess we’re all going to have to suck it and see for a month or so and see how they all shape up …

  41. Hmm, no Eleven Sports coverage on Overplay’s SmartDNS but I’ve emailed em to get it sorted ASAP – fingers crossed 🙂

  42. Hey.

    OK, I’ll try switching to USA on Overplay’s SmartDNS and see if I get different content on BeIn, or get locked out instead lol

    Blimey mate, that sounds too good to be true re the EFL?? Why would Eleven Sports show those games when they’re not even covering all the PL games?? That said, the EFL has more eyes on it than ever with two big hitting teams down there this season so it kinda makes sense …

    Hey, if it’s true I’ll take it lol – perhaps Eleven Sports is the ideal backup to BeIn in that case …

    Cheers 🙂

  43. thats good to hear John! I would suggest you test BeIN Sports out directly yourself. Just log into your overplay account and see if it has multiple regions. Im sure what you say would work as I think it works the same as netflix i.e. the service is the same but the content differs between regions. In other News. I felt so bad for you being an Aston Villa fan that I found a way for you to watch them. Eleven Sports are showing both the EFL league and cup and all will bein English from this coming weekend. Last week being in chinese (mandarin) was a one off

  44. Well I’ve switched back to Overplay SmartDNS tonight for the Chelsea vs West Ham game tonight and there’s a definite improvement on BeIn Sports since the weekend …

    Buffering is completely gone – great.

    Picture quality is slightly improved. Still nowhere near broadcast (SD) standard, more like a decent public stream but it’s watchable at least.

    Perhaps Overplay have tweaked something to account for the mild improvement or it’s because there’s only one game on at the moment – time will tell …

    I note that Overplay have a USA DNS option for BeIn Sports – is it possible to sign up for BeIn Sports USA to get American/English analysis at halftime etc rather than the Arabic studio as I get currently? 🙂


  45. its per month, INR199 so fluctuates around £2.30 although it may go up as the pound isn’t worth a crap anymore. I have unlocked this channel now and have a workaround in place. Will post the guide soon I’m drafting it now but they sometimes take a while to write depending on how distracted I get!

  46. hi John, sorry to hear about that. I hope some others in the community will back this information up as that is far from ideal if people like you are struggling with reliability. Whenever I have used BeIN i have had great results to be honest, but I haven’t tried this season yet. PLP is a massive loss to be fair! I don’t think a service like that will ever come up again, full HD, quad play, all english!! it was the dream! Have you asked Overplay via their support to look into optimising? there may be a genuine problem they are unaware of. BeIN is officially supported by them so I highly recommend you do so. I can’t say anything for Getflix as I have no experience of them though

  47. So I went with:
    Eleventsports taiwan 690 TWD -> 20€ for the year ! so 1,66€ a month
    pureVPN 2 year subscription -> 66€ -> 2,75€ monthly …
    Totalling 4,41€ a month.

    Probably the cheapest.
    Quality is perfect.
    (I only used the vpn for the subscription, live is working with my 100 MB connection…)
    But the commentary is Taiwanese…

    I will probably give a try to Foxsport Australia next.

  48. PS: If anyone has sussed out the best option for seeing EFL games too I’d much appreciate it – Villa fan here 😉

  49. I’m trying out BeIn Sports (Arabic) from the UK now and it’s awful.

    PremierLeaguePass streamed authentic HD quality games flawlessly but BeIn’s web site and browser player are woeful and always crashing plus the quality of the stream (I have 200mbps cable …) is more like a standard 500kbps stream – very pixellated and always buffering …

    If you can even get signed up on their terrible web site it’s a miracle – *tip* keep pressing the buttons and eventually you’ll get a “hit” …

    I had to use IE to make their video player work at all and I had to add their domain to my trusted sites to make it do anything at all. Then you have to realise that there’s often a hidden “display mixed content” message that you have to answer yes to (try Alt-Tab to make it show up) regardless of the security changes you’ve made in the browser …

    Oh and when you change the language to English it nearly always crashes the player even after you’ve negotiated all of the above …

    I’ve tried it with both an Overplay and Getflix DNS spoofer and it’s always the same – pixellated/buffering video even when you eventually get it working …

    Avoid BeIn imo …

    I’d like to hear of the best option other than BeIn for people in the UK – PLP was simply amazing and I’m looking for reliability rather than uber HD quality but will happily pay for both …


  50. Thanks for looking into this – will wait for your guide. What would you say the second best option is for people in the UK?

  51. turns out you need the Hotstar app for this. Will write a guide ASAP. just confirming something first. I won’t be able to do it for tomorrow but basically you need to subscribe to Hotstar premium which is an app only. All HD content is free but Sport and HBO is ‘premium’. Looks brilliant ai just wish they mentioned it on their site before the start of the season!

  52. @UnlockWorldTV, under Football > EPL > Matches I only see last season replay. No game from today.
    We’ll see tomorrow…

  53. yes they have the broadcast rights until the 2018/19 season. the games should be under Football > EPL > Matches. Its a terrible tabbed menu I grant you that! il have to check tomorrow to see if they have altered their setup. Normally game links appear shortly before kick off and and delayed by around five minutes. The repay links are all there now but I didn’t view the site earlier to see if there was any specific issue

  54. I think I have correctly configured SmartDNS proxy for Starsport as I can see cricket but I don’t see any link for the EPL. Is this me or there is no live EPL on Starsport anymore?
    Thank you!

  55. Hello

    So I have taken up the free two week trial with smart DNS proxy with the intension of signing up if everything works.

    After registering and then setting up my laptop. I followed this BeIn Connect link under their service page. The BeIn Connect website was in Arabic so I managed to change it to read English.

    Long story short – I registered with BeIn and even subscribed to their annual package. But when I click the channels to watch, it just says loading and nothing actually loads. So at the moment I can’t watch anything.

    What am I doing wrong or what should I be doing?

    My IT knowledge is minimal. So please break it down.

    Also I already subscribed to the the sports packagae, based on what I’ve read above I need the full package to access the English Sports Channel. Does anyone know how to change the subscription?


  56. How can I get the apps to use the site if I can’t download them because I’m not in that country? Even with a vpn it doesn’t work

  57. From oz: signed uop for bein mena using getflix. they do not accept locally issued credit card. so need to use virtual credit cards. Also make sure you choose the full package as the sports package only carries arabic channels.

    For address as long you mention the road name its passes through and you do not need to fill up the phone section.
    apparently getflix supports star sports india, as in their dash board lists star sports india.

  58. Great guide on setting up BeIN Sports but after entering address etc. I cant get to the next page, it says theres a problem and I should contact support. Tried several addresses and servers and always the same error. Any ideas? Thanks

  59. Anyone having problems processing payment on BEIN, I used SMARTDNS and also overplay and I am able to get to the subscription section but payment fails on all of my UK bank cards, any suggestions

  60. Hi, its not officially supported by Netflix but thats not to say it won’t work. I recommend you contact them and if it doesn’t work they should be able to set it up!

  61. I am able to sign up to BEIN here in London as have vpn etc all set up.
    Only problem seems to be when i have to enter an address. What is best way around this?

  62. I have bought PureVPN and using it to watch Premier League live online. It has been superb and I am enjoying different matches at a time on different devices through multi login feature.

  63. Ok but remember you need to change the store itself rather than the server. I.e go direct to the Egyptian store not go to the uk store whilst connected to Egyptian server

  64. Thanks for your advice.
    Got the service using the Egyptian server and signed up ok. Streaming working fine on my laptop, but no joy on iPad – because I can’t download the app.
    Will make do with laptop access for moment.
    Would really like the Bein boxes & satellite reception, but don’t know how the box and subscription card would reach me as I have a UK address in reality.
    In other words I pretend via VPN to be located in Egypt and can therefore access streaming on line, but I can not then purchase and have delivered the satellite hardware and viewing card…which I would prefer.

  65. Have you checked with purevpn support? they may be able to assist. Did you try different encryptions i.e openvpn rather than PPTP. Also, if you have DNS service also, I’ve found them to not play nice together

  66. Still no joy…
    Logged in th Bein Connect, but screen asks me to download iOS app (for my iPad)…
    However, using the link to that app returns’ it available in Saudi store’?
    Nothing in uk iTunes store

  67. My link to that Egypt server is now allowing a connecto Bein sports and I have registered for a (test) monthly package; however, when I came to pay I was asked to fill in street name, city, and country…..there us not an option for the UK to be shown there….then I get the ‘error with your payment’ etc…presume the Egypt country address is causing the card provider (Amex) to reject the payment request…

  68. I have the same problem as Fraser above. It was working fine through PureVPN to watch Star Sports and now always an error message on star sports. Did you find a fix Fraser? Anyone else got an idea? Cheers.

  69. Thanks for the brilliant advice on your unlockworlftv site.
    To try to buy a Football package I purchased Earth VPN but I am not clever enough to understand and follow the setup instructions for my iPad. As I already have vpn4all working fine I tried the only Egyption Server they off ( but although I Connect successfully the Bein site states ‘
    ‘not available for my location’…

    Maybe some Egyptian iOS are not allowed.
    Any advice appreciated.
    Thank you

  70. Hi, this is a query that needs to go to PureVPN direct. They can test the service directly and trouble shoot if its network specific to you. Out of interest, when I have had trouble int he past it was because I also had a DNS service in use. Not sure if you have overplay or similar but if you do it might be it.

  71. Just updated to the newest version and still won’t work, I get the same error. Can you confirm its still working for you on laptop version of PureVPN? Really gutted as it was working perfectly! Could it be my PureVPN account?

  72. Hi, do you have the latest app version? they may have blocked an older version. I used star sports yesterday on iPhone and it worked perfectly. I used Overplay yesterday though, didn’t test purevpn I’m afraid. Hopefully other site users will let you know

  73. I have been using Star Sports with PureVPN successfully until recently where I just get the “This service is temporarily unavailable” message. I’ve tried it on various different streams and with different servers but nothing changes. Is anyone else having this issue?

  74. Hi, i think maybe you mean Star Sports. Its changed in terms of it no longer requires a paid subscription, so if you try to sign up you will get an error relating to packages. But you do not need to sign up at all.

  75. I had successfully used the India Sky Sports to watch , but now it doesn’t work! It says it is temporarily unavailable. Did something change?

  76. At those speeds I would probably go for DNS . Most services u might subscribe to allow monthly so there is little to lose even if you do get booted. But there is no security in a DNS at all other than hiding ur country of origin. If you genuinely need security then it’s a VPN every time

  77. Great website! I can’t believe I’ve not found this sooner.

    I live in the back o’ beyond in UK and we get 4mbps here 🙁 Its enough to comfortably stream Netflix and Now TV etc, just wondering if you have any idea how it would hold up using a VPN or DNS?

    The DNS appeals because I wouldn’t lose any speed but I’ve read that the VPNs are more secure so you’re less likely to be booted? Is that true? Which would you recommend?

  78. the ping is quite high but the bandwidth is fine. Perhaps leave it connected a while to let it settle. It may be worth trying a DNS service depending on where in the world you are.

  79. hi there, thanks for the review 🙂

    just have a couple of questions. I have now installed IPVanish and subscribed for Premier League Pass but there is still a lot of buffering when I want to watch any type of video even with the worst quality. Do you know why this could be? Is it my internet? The speedtest I have made, gave me the following result:

    Download: 10.51 Mbit/s
    Upload: 1.07 Mbit/s
    Ping Zeit: 12.07 ms

    Are these good results? Or is this not enough for streaming? I do not know anything about that. I hope you may help me.

    Thank you :-).

  80. I’ve heard of them but not used them. It is possible to get banned from PLP I guess but there is no contract so u could either cancel your payment or even cancel your card if u needed to so I wouldn’t worry about that

  81. hey, i was thinking of using unotelly as a vpn or dns? have you heard of this site? also, if i get premier league pass, do you think the chance of getting banned is high? and if so do they still deduct money per month?

  82. Hello

    Managed to get the Star Sports iOS app working this morning, bit of a faff but easy enough. Where can we obtain an android .apk for Star Sports?

  83. Thank you for the quick responses I had a quick look at Permier League Pass last night but using VanishPVN I don’t seem to be able to get onto the Philipines website. Says it is not a valid country. Going to check out your F1 page.

  84. Hi Darren, yes PLP is the best and it also has quad play for the 3pm / end of season games! For f1 you could pay and use star sports (Europe rather than India) but I have an f1 guide on the site which shows the free channels that broadcast it from Australia UK USA etc

  85. Hello

    Premier League Pass sounds like the best for image quality is that correct? I would also want to watch the Formula one as well so would one of the other channels work?

    Thanks for your guides very informative

  86. They’ve migrated their system and now I get (error 3222) and can’t watch anything. Before them migration is was fine.

    Any thoughts on how to fix?


  87. I haven’t used a VPN. As you have said previously the drawback of them is that the speed is massively reduced.

    I used SmartDNS proxy, Unotelly and Getflix.

    I am still in the process of testing but all seem equally as good so far.


  88. Thanks for the guide. Signed up for star sports and PLP. Works fine. Star sports looks ugly on a 50″ TV of course (great on tablet).

    PLP is better but still not up to broadcast quality (even at 4500kbps)

    Not tried BEIN HD yet.

  89. Really? It should email u and ask you to confirm your address and once you do that it emails you out links to the files. Have you had just one email? If so just confirm and then you should be good to go. You need to fill the form in from those links rather than the general one on the top right of the page. Apologies if it was confusing! If it still doesn’t work let me know and il try and get the apk over when I get a spare minute later

  90. thanks for this, im nowrocking both star and premierleaugepass

    i can now resume my Saturday traditions on a budget! 😀
