    1. Hi Lane,

      A VPN is useful for people who watch sports via the internet. Even if you’re in the U.S., a VPN allows you to stream with no ISP throttling and helps you secure your internet connection for whatever you choose to do on the net. Watching sports in HD is only the tip of the iceberg 🙂

    1. Thanks Dilshan!

      ExpressVPN is not a broadcast partner of the Super Bowl so we cannot provide any streams, unfortunately 🙁

      The good news is, you can use a VPN to watch the stream from any country’s super bowl broadcast partner! 🙂

    1. Hi Harold,

      That depends on which country you want to watch the Super Bowl from. If you would like to watch a U.S. broadcast, you’ll need a Fox Sports subscription. For a UK broadcast, you’ll need BBC iPlayer.

      You can then use ExpressVPN to make sure you can access the stream (and any web service) with no throttling and blocking. Game on!

  1. Thanks to express vpn i never have to worry about my personal data getting in the hands of hackers.
    and i have been using Express VPN on my android device for the past 15 days.
