  1. All I want is to be able to watch the college bowl games broadcast New Year’s Eve and New Years Day. I live in Mexico and am connected to ExpressVPN through Dallas with a US ISP. I don’t have TV. Only my laptop. What can I do to see my games? Thanks

  2. All i have is a desk top computer windows 10,, NO TV or SUBSCRIPTION.. I was told i could watch the COLLEGE BTN FOOTBALL games on my computer,, Do i need any other hookups> I already paid $$$$ to another site than found out i could only watch REPLAYS,, So if i join can i watch the college games live in the big 10 ? Thanks

    1. Hi Joey,

      For live college football streams, YouTube TV should be your best bet. YouTube TV has the core ESPN channels as well as the Big Ten Network. Between these two networks, you should be able to watch all B10 football games.

      How are you feeling about the upcoming Big Ten season? Is this the season Michigan finally returns to the big time? We have a few Michigan fans here in the office who are hoping so!

  3. I am an american living in Germany. I have an ExpressVPN account. I signed up for Youtube TV and it worked for one day. I guess Youtube figured out I was logging in with a VPN because I got a pop-up box telling me there was a VPN proxy and I needed to turn it off. I’m really disappointed because I thought I had finally found a solution to the German cable service (Kabel Deutschland/Vodafone) where they advertise a sports package only to remove the entire sport (ex. NFL) when the price is not cheap enough to carry out the entire season. That just happened this year with NCAA football. We got two or three games each weekend up until the Bowl season and playoffs. I missed both games (Alabama vs Oklahoma and Clemson vs Notre Dame). Needless to say the final will not be broadcast. Does anyone out there know if there is a way to get Youtube TV in a reliable fashion? Any comments would be appreciated. Thanks.

    1. Hi Johnny,

      For the best experience, you should enter a Zip code that matches the VPN location you’re connected to.

      For example, if you’re connected to New York, try googling “New York zip code” and enter what you see. (e.g. 10001, 10005, etc.)

  4. Hi,
    I am ex Military living in Germany and would love to watch some SEC Football here online. Is there going to be a problem with the Germany NTSC signal and the USA PAL system with streaming here in Germany??

    Roll Tide!

    1. Hi Don,

      You should have no problem using ExpressVPN to watch streams in NTSC or PAL since the VPN does not discriminate between the video standards you use. Rather, ExpressVPN helps you encrypt your traffic and avoid ISP throttling. If you run into any issues, please contact Support at http://www.expressvpn.com/support for assistance.

      p.s. Congrats on that Tennessee win. Brutal!

  5. Hi
    I live in Australia, have FOXTEL but get very few College Games or ESPNU. I have not heard of SLING; will it allow me to watch the games that are not televised on FOXTEL and will I get access to ESPNU?

    Many thanks
    Ross

    1. Hi Ross,

      Sling provides a comprehensive package of channels, including ESPN. Sling TV customers get ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPN3 with the Sling Orange service. If you get the Sports Extra, you’ll get SEC Network, ESPNU, ESPNEWS and ESPN Buzzer Beater.

      You’ll need a U.S. IP address to access Sling (including its free trial). For that, you can use a VPN. If you run into issues setting up, feel free to contact Support at http://www.expressvpn.com/support

    2. We live in Australia and do not have cable. My husband ants to watch the Georgia Alabama game. Ho would we do that?

      1. Hi Patti,

        ExpressVPN can help you watch national championship game streams no matter where you are.

        Just fire up the ExpressVPN app then head to ESPN, YouTube TV, or Sling (you may need a subscription for these services but many offer free trials) and you’ll be able to watch in HD, with no throttling or blackouts!

        If you run into a problem, please contact Support at http://www.expressvpn.com/support/#open-chat

  6. A person living in the UK. Can NOT log-in using his dad’s AT&T universe account but can’t watch anything. Could this be due to his IP address being in the UK? And if so, the VPN would be able to bypass that problem?

    My comment: I though you were hidden and therefore no one would know where your at. Does any website know my current IP address?

  7. Hello,

    I am from the US but am currently living in the UK. I have the log-in info for my dad’s AT&T uverse account but can’t successfully watch anything. Could this be due to my IP address being in the UK? And if so, the VPN would be able to bypass that problem?

  8. Hi there,
    My husband is a HUGE NCAA college football fan, as he went to high school in the states. For 5 years we have tried countless ways to try and stream Oregon Ducks games live, with no success, and unfortunately a few computer viruses that resulted from sketchy sites. We live in Edmonton, Alberta – Canada. I have researched and found that Sling TV offers the Pac-12 Network with their package, and you don not require to have a cable subscription to their provider which is Dish – but it’s only available to US residents. My question: If we get the VPN service, will this allow us to subscribe to Sling TV and finally get to watch the games?!

  9. I am traveling in France and want to watch the OU/OSU game tomorrow (11:30 CST) that is being aired on FOX. Can i do this on your system? If I use your product, can I buy it for just the game I want or do I need to buy and month and then just cancel after I use the service?

    1. Hi Darrell,

      You can try ExpressVPN for 30 days free. So do give the app a try, bowl season is coming and there’s going to be a ton of football to watch!

    1. Hi Mike,

      Yep! No matter where you are, simply connect to one of ExpressVPN’s U.S. server locations and you’re set to enjoy college football games on your streaming subscription!

    1. Hi Sandy,

      A VPN is needed because Sling subscriptions only work for U.S. IP addresses. By using a VPN, you’ll be able to stream on Sling and access any other online media site you want!

  10. Can I watch Clemson University football games on ESPN via your service. I have Time Warner internet, but no cable service.
    Also, can I download torrents and seed torrents?
