Watch Premier League on Hotstar Premium but PureVPN still Works
Today I did a little experiment with PureVPN. You may know that PureVPN added some Pakistan Servers for the Cricket Word cup. In addition ,they also recently added 10 new Indian Servers. All of these are suitable for streaming Star Sports India.
But how did it work in practice? after a few false starts and an as yet incomplete test (as in I have not tested every one of the servers) I had some fantastic results.
Take a look at the screen shot below. Its been a while since I saw a crisp Star Sports stream like this. The screenshot was taken on my iPhone so doesn’t do it justice but see for yourself
Interestingly, the way I got this connection going, (and you will need to take my word that the picture was crystal clear) did involve a little bit of manual work. Thankfully there is a full guide available which I recreated here with specifics around the server I used to get this excellent result. I will also provide some other servers, but bear in mind you will need to subscribe to the PureVPN service to access these servers.
First things first, in order to continue you need to sign up to purevpn
Access Star Sports with Pure VPN on iPad or iPhone
Step 1: Go to Settings
Step 2 Go to General
Step 3 go to VPN
Step 4 Go to Add VPN Configuration
Step 5 Go to PPTP
Insert in description “PureVPN PPTP”.
The server used for this test was star1.pointtoserver.com
|Channels||Connect Server||Paid/Free||Manual Address|
|Star Sports||UK, India, Ireland||Paid||star1.pointtoserver.com|
Use you PureVPN Username & Password. (these are NOT your sign in details!! which are different)
If you aren’t sure, check your email from PureVPN confirming your subscription
Now tap on “Save”
Remember enter the Description EXACTLY as shown “PurevpnPPTP” choose the server you require from the box in step 7
so there we have it. If you haven’t already download the star sports app on your iPad or iPhone (
here is a guide if you are not sure how)
