  1. So, are you saying that even with an ExpressVPN account, I will need to have a cable subscription in order to live stream any and all of the events I wish to watch?

    1. Hi Billy,

      Not necessarily. This past season, Yahoo Sports offered free streams for the playoffs. Amazon offered free Thursday Night Football, while services like Sling TV showed regular season games and come with a free trial. With a VPN, a cable subscription is nice but not necessary 🙂

  2. I’m from Philadelphia, but will be in Israel for the Superbowl. The hotel that I’m staying at says that they don’t have Fox Sports, so I need to live stream the event to my devices–my iPhone 7 plus and my pad, which is an Android. For the latter, I was going to use ExpressVPN and YouTube TV, which is what you were saying a few days ago. But now you are saying to download TV player and have a TV license. Do I really need a licence? How do I get one? If I have to download TV Player, do I have to select a UK server thru ExpressVPN? Will the option that you were originally suggesting NOT work, i.e., ExpressVPN, selecting a US server, and using YouTube TV?

    As a back-up, I was going to use ExpressVPN on my cell phone, select a US server, and download the Yahoo Sports app. Will that work?

    Please advise on both matters. Thanks!

    1. Hi there,

      ExpressVPN helps you access the various networks used to watch the NFL. However, you will need a cable subscription in order to watch the actual games. If you need guidance with which ExpressVPN servers to use, please get in touch with the support team at 🙂
