  1. I am an “oldie” with few technical skills who is trying watch the EPL from Australia where they have little time for real football. What can you suggest ?

  2. Hi I was intending on purchasing an Elevensports subscription via the taiwan location on express vpn as instructed as i thought that it shows all premier league games .However looking at the guide for next saturday on theit website it only seems to show a selection of games but i wish to watch the everton. Is this true that i can only watch certain games and if so, is there another streaming service i can use?

    1. Hi Keith,

      The schedule on the Eleven Sports Taiwan site appears to be wrong. For the coming weekend, they’re listing games like Spurs vs. Aston Villa and West Ham vs. Man City, but Spurs are playing Man City while Aston Villa are hosting Bournemouth.

      Eleven Sports should have all of the games available. But if you’re not feeling sure, you can use one of the free trial options above (e.g., fubo TV) to catch Everton vs. Watford.

      How are you feeling about Everton this season? The Toffees have made some top signings and should really fancy nabbing a European place! We’ll admit we’re excited to see how the Sigurðsson-Kean connection plays out!

  3. I am located in the UK and pay for Sky sports and BT Sports to watch English premier League football especially Arsenal matches. Any ideas what is the best way to watch without buffering.

  4. I’d like to know how I can use this with my LG Smart TV to watch IPTV which blocks all channels during English Premiership games?

    1. Hi there,

      We recommend streaming platforms like Fubo TV and Eleven Sports. Together, these services carry all of the competitions you mentioned. Try connecting to a U.S. VPN location before accessing Fubo TV and a UK location before visiting Eleven Sports.

  5. Hi,

    I have been using VPN express in Australia perfectly and am looking to setup VPN express for my family in the UK so they can watch the EPL. I have it working fine with an iPad or iPhone using the Optus app (and VPN express app) but when I try to use the Optus app through a 4th gen Apple TV I cant get it to work. Do you know if other customers have the Optus sport app working through Apple TV outside of Australia. Other Australian based apps (SBS or ABC) are working but not Optus sport (or some other Australia apps like 9now or 7plus).

    Thanks
    David

  6. Hello.
    I have ExpressVPN and I was going to watch English football, but somehow I can not watch football through VPN. I’ve tried to follow VPN setup information. As this does not work, I’m going to stop VPN and close it..Thanks.
    Erling.

  7. Hi, I have an Express Vpn subscription already and it is really excellent. As a UK based football fan, I would happily pay for a domestic subscription to Sky and BT Sports but the prices are just extortionate.

    I hate the idea of illegal streams so last season I paid for (month by month) access to a legitimate European supplier by using one of your servers in that country. Unfortunately, it became rather unreliable – laggy, freezing – so I am looking for a replacement. Do you have any suggestions?

    I have read some of your other articles on this subject but I am not sure if a Canadian or US server would cut it – plus I can’t possibly provide cable login details.
