  1. 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:

  2. 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

  3. Hi!
    Does ExpressVPN work with DSTVNow ( 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 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.



  4. Hi I want to watch live rugby games on SuperSport (South Africa), i currently live in SA.

    Do i have to need a DSTV account to watch local Super sport games?

    Why do i need an account to stream when i can watch it on the decoder, please advise. I need clarity regarding the account?

    Awaiting your prompt respond.

  6. 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. 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!
