A VPN is also the best way to prevent your ISP from throttling your speeds on race day by encrypting your traffic, and it’s also a good idea if you’re traveling and find yourself connected to a Wi-Fi network and you want to add an extra layer of privacy for your devices and logins.

With a VPN you can virtually change your location on your phone, tablet or laptop to access the game. Most VPNs, like ours Editors’ Choice, ExpressVPNmake it very easy to do this.

Using a VPN to watch or stream sports is legal in any country where VPNs are legal, including the US, UK, and Canada, as long as you have a legitimate subscription to the service you’re streaming. You’ll want to make sure your VPN is set up correctly to prevent leaks: Even if VPNs are legal, the streaming service can terminate the account of anyone it believes is evading properly applied blackout restrictions.

Quick tips for streaming the FA Cup with a VPN

  • With four variables at play – your internet service provider, browser, video streaming provider and VPN – your experience and success streaming FA Cup matches can vary.
  • If you don’t see your desired location as the default option for ExpressVPN, try the “search by city or country” option.
  • If you’re having trouble downloading the game after enabling your VPN and setting it to the correct viewing area, there are two things you can try for a quick fix. First, sign in to your streaming service subscription account and make sure that the registered address for the account is an address in the correct viewing area. If not, you may need to change the physical address registered to your account. Second, some smart TVs, such as Roku, don’t have VPN apps that you can install directly on the device itself. Instead, you’ll need to install the VPN on your router or the mobile hotspot you’re using (such as your phone), so that every device on the Wi-Fi network now appears in the correct viewing location.
  • All of the VPN providers we recommend have helpful instructions on their main site for quickly installing the VPN on your router. In some cases, with smart TV services, after installing a cable network’s sports app, you’ll be asked to verify a number code or click a link sent to your email address registered for your smart TV. This is where having a VPN on your router will also help, as both devices seem to be in the right location.
  • And remember, browsers can often give away location despite using a VPN, so be sure to use a privacy-first browser to log into your services. We normally recommend Brave.
