Why use a VPN to watch the CrossFit Games?

A VPN stands for virtual private network. It’s a simple way to encrypt your traffic and provide extra security.

When you connect to a VPN server location, you’re able to take on the server’s country’s IP address—giving you access to all the websites and content available in that area.

ExpressVPN has more than 140+ VPN server locations in 90+ countries and counting. That’s a lot of options and a lot of new ways to watch sports.
