What streaming services can I watch with ExpressVPN?


  1. To pay 7.26€ for 12 months is that a joke?
    Well I want to use my android smartphone to view this year’s formula 1 racing. Can I have more information on how to proceed?

  2. Hi guys
    I have paid for and downloaded your app for windows.
    I stay in South Africa and I am being blocked by YouTube TV and after trying to register an account I get the following message “VPN/Proxy Detected”.
    Can you advise? I specifically want to watch formula 1.

  3. While trying to stream on NOWTV the player states that I am using a VPN and therefor doesn’t allow it to be used,

  4. I’m from Brazil. I will buy the ExpressVPN to spoof my location and watch the F1.
    I can pay the F1 Pro TV with some credit card from Brazil? Its any problem with payment without USA credit card?

      1. Thanks. F1 tv works for multiple countries and multiple credit cards, Brazil is not one of them, unfortunately. I can watch it, as long as I am in the same country I have a credit card for (or use a VPN of course :))

  5. Hi

    I use a smart IPTV app on LG tv to watch IPTV which is a wired connection . IF I use the router express VPN does this still work ? And will the VPN slow down my wired connection?

  6. I currently have a year long subscription to ExpressVPN however I was looking at purchasing the new F1 Pro subscription that gives you love streams of all races and catchup. I have found it available in Luxembourg can you confirm that it will work to stream when I purchase the F1 Pro subscription. I believe it’s a fairly new thing..

    Many thanks

    1. Hi there,

      We have not encountered cases where ExpressVPN does not work with F1 Pro. Also, ExpressVPN comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee, so if you do have an issue with streaming that the Support team cannot resolve, you’ll get 100% of your money back 🙂

  7. I am not clear on the workings of VPN. I still keep my ISP, right? Do I need to make any changes to my current setup? How does this work?

    1. Hi Rick,

      A VPN does not replace your ISP. However, a VPN encrypts your traffic, so your ISP can’t see your internet traffic and stream providers won’t know where you’re browsing from.

      This means you can stream with anonymity and avoid blackouts and throttling. If you have further questions, feel free to get in touch with Support here:

  8. I am on holiday in France and want to stream the Australian grand prix on my laptop but only want to pay for this race as I will be back home next month. What are my Options?

    Cheers Arie

    1. Hi arie,

      You can use ExpressVPN for 30 days free. Just sign up, watch the race, and cancel before the 30 days are through 🙂

      Of course, we hope you’ll continue to use ExpressVPN. ExpressVPN helps you watch other great content without throttling or local blackouts and also secures your internet connection. So give it a go! We hope you’ll enjoy using ExpressVPN.

  9. Before purchasing i would like to know if i can receive SKy F1 in The Netherlands, and not just Ziggo. I want to watch F1 from SKY and not ZIGGO.

    1. Hi Rogier,

      ExpressVPN helps you access Sky and any other F1 broadcasters in HD, no matter where you are. The VPN does not block your access to any broadcaster but helps protect your traffic from being throttled by your ISP.

      You can give ExpressVPN a try for 30-days free, and contact Support at if you encounter any issues.

      Happy streaming!

  10. Before signing up I wish to confirm that I will be able to watch all 2018 F1 GP’s here in Australia. I’ve dumped Foxtel as they are a huge rip off & have no other way 0f watching the GP’s.
    Is there a way to record from your package as same races are run at fairly anti social hours.

  11. Will streaming to Europe / The Netherlands also be possible by Express VPN? Who will be the broadcaster for Europe or The Netherlands.

    1. Hi Rene,

      ExpressVPN can help you enjoy Formula 1 streams (and streams for other sports) no matter where you are. For the Netherlands, Ziggo Sport will be the broadcaster. To stream:
      1. See the list of broadcasters:
      2. Select a broadcaster and connect to an ExpressVPN location in the same country
      3. You’re done!

      Be sure to contact Support ( if you need assistance 🙂
