  1. I paid for something that won’t work in the Philippines, how can I claim my payment back? Im so disappointed, I even click Philippines as my location, it should have prevented me if I had known nothing will work here. I just paid for it to watch thr rygby world cup semi finals…

  2. I’m living in Auckland,
    New Zealand. By now,
    I have written the results
    of the Pool play of the
    past few weeks. Of
    course, I am following
    The defending
    Champions, NEW
    ZEALAND.

  3. Unfortunately ExpressVPN do not have enough bandwidth for big occasions like this.
    I am subscribed for over a year, with good results, but you need more servers

    1. Hi Justin,

      Rai Sport is the broadcaster for Italy. You can use a VPN to access the Italian stream, or you can connect to the UK and watch the ITV stream for every game.

  4. Hi I live in the Philippines and would like to watch the Super Rugby matches played between the teams in Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. I would also like to watch the world cup and other games. How would I be able to use the VPN service to watch these matches live? Will I be able to watch on the TV with YouTube app? Your advice would be appreciated.
    Many thanks

      1. Which ITV (UK) channel is streaming the RWC? There are 3 sports channels on ITV & I couldn’t see the RWC in the tv guide section. Thanks

  5. I’m vacationing in Costa Rica and would like to watch the six nations rugby. If I sign up for VPN will I be able to stream all the games starting with then Ireland Scotland etc?

    1. Hi Patrick,

      To watch the games, you simply need to know which country is the «home» team for the match. To watch the home games for France, Scotland, and Wales, head to TVPlayer or TVCatchup and select BBC. For the other nations, select ITV.

      If you any issues watching the streams, please contact Support here: https://www.expressvpn.com/support/#open-chat

  6. Hi I live in BC Canada and would like to watch the Super Rugby matches played between the teams in Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. Hwo would I be able to use the VPN service to watch these matches either live or delayed. Your advice would be appreciated.
    Many thanks

  7. Hi!
    Does ExpressVPN work with DSTVNow (https://now.dstv.com/) on my Windows 10 Notebook? I am from South Africa and reside in the California but would like to watch my Supersport Channels, etc on DSTVNow. I have a DSTV Account (ie: login).

    I also need to know if I can use the Chrome or Firefox ExpressVPN Extension to watch on https://now.dstv.com/ instead of the your main APP because I dont want it to interfere with my Amazon Prime Account in the US. In other words, I will be using Firefox with your VPM extension for DSTV and Chrome without your extension for US based accounts like Amazon Prime.

    Thanks!

    Regards
    Shafique

  9. Hi,

    I am planning to watch the Rugby League World Cup beginning in the next 2 to 3 days co hosted by Australia/NZ and PNG.

    I am in Micronesia (South West Pacific)

    I have downloaded the VPN express.

    What is the best sit to stream and watch? Can you attach their URL here. Thanks

    1. Hi Joe,

      With a VPN, you can view Rugby League World Cup streams from a variety of countries.

      We’ve listed 5 sites in the «How to watch the Rugby League World Cup with a VPN» section above. Check them out and let Support know if you have issues! (www.expressvpn.com/support/)

  10. I’m in India and want to watch the rugby. Do i also need subscription to SKY TV? Whats best way for me to get the rugby without having to pay for VPN and subscription to a broadcaster?

    1. Hi there,

      If you’re looking for a British broadcast, Sky TV is the way to go. We don’t advise watching free streams since they are almost always low quality and can present a range of internet risks. Besides, a VPN is perfect for watching any online TV show 🙂

        1. To watch everything yes. But sometimes broadcasters show matches for free (e.g. For showed the Super Bowl for American Football free of charge), so it would be a good idea to check the site of the broadcaster and see if they’re airing your favorite matches for free 🙂

    1. Hi John,

      Sounds like a case where ExpressVPN can help! Just use ExpressVPN and connect to an Irish server, and you’ll be all set 🙂

      1. ExpressVPN does not work with RTE, and has not been working for a while. I have been trying for weeks and missed a number of occasions. The website detects the proxy address, as I believe the IP is recognised. Will it work for the Japan Ireland game today?

    1. Hi Richard,

      No problem! ExpressVPN does not prevent you from connecting to any web service. In fact, ExpressVPN can help you access your favorite web services from anywhere in the world at high speeds and with added security.

      Just connect to an ExpressVPN server in a country where the service is available, and you’re all set!
