How to watch the final games of the 2020 Premier League season

The English Premier League is the most widely watched league in the World . Fans all over the world are eagerly awaiting the restart following the COVID-19 lockdown. All the action starts again on Wednesday the 17th June.

In this guide, we’ll show you several options for using your Vanished VPN subscription to watch every game of a packed schedule. With Liverpool almost certain to lift the trophy in the early rounds, the battles for Champions league places, and safety from relegation in a busy foot of the table will take centre stage

NBC Sports Gold

Our 1st recommendation is bar far the easiest, and will give you access to live streams, Full match replays (available for 30 days) highlights and analysis. NBC Sports is offering its Gold Premier League pass for just $9.99 to cover all the remaining games (normally $64.99 per year, which is also great value). To access this offer:

  1. Sign up for a Vanished VPN subscription if you don’t have one.
  2. Connect to our USA VPN
  3. Go to https://www.nbcsports.com/gold/premier-league and sign up for the gold pass at $9.99
  4. Go to the Premier League section of their site and enjoy the streams

You can also access the streams on your mobile device or tablet by downloading the NBC Sports Gold app. For this , you will need to be signed onto a USA play or iTunes account.

You will see which games are available live in the schedule. All games will be available as a full match replay after 9pm ET on the day of the match for 30 days.

BBC iPlayer

For the 1st time in Premier League history, some games will be broadcast on free to air BBC. These streams will also be available on BBC iPlayer. Just connect to our UK VPN to access BBC iPlayer . Check out our full guide here if you get stuck.

Hotstar

Hotstar is one of our favourite streaming sites. It carries all of the premier league live streams & highlights. To access the Live streams you will need a Premium account. If you have one, you’re lucky, as they have made it increasingly difficult to sign up from outside India. New Hotstar premium accounts now require an Indian credit card and mobile number. If you have a friend in India, maybe they can help. Alternatively, you can find Premium accounts for sale by searching Instagram (try something like #hotstarpremiumaccounts). We have tried some of these, and they do work, but we cannot guarantee or recommend specific sellers.Once you have a Hotstar premium account, just connect to our India VPN, and the streams will be unblocked.

Other options

Fubo.tv & Sling.tv (blue package) both give access to NBC Sports and show most of the matches. They both have free trial periods , and can be unblocked by connecting to our USA VPN. After the trial , Sling.tv is the best value at $30 per month compared to $59.99 for Fubo.tv. Both have recording included.

The Mola TV app is also another option. This provides free access to the streams on your mobile device, and can be unblocked by connecting to our Indonesia VPN. We have found availability of streams to be a bit unreliable, so if you’re looking for a solid solution, NBC Sports is still our #1.

Schedule

Here’s the initial TV schedule with links to some of the USA streaming sites (which you can access by connecting to our USA VPN). Currently , the season is expected to run until the end of July 2020, with FA cup matches to follow into August. All times are USA Eastern.

How to stream Bundesliga for free from anywhere in the world

This guide will show you how to watch Bundesliga football from anywhere in the world.

Its the moment that sports fans all over the world have been anxiously waiting for while in isolation. Competitive sport is set to return to our screens from the 16th May, with Germany’s Bundesliga taking the 1st step.

Because of the risk of COVID-19, these games will be played in empty stadiums, but clubs are filling the empty seats with cardboard cut outs of pictures of fans to try and create some kind of atmosphere.

There are several options for streaming Bundesliga, which we’ve detailed below. For each of these, you will need a Vanished VPN subscription , and set up on your device of choice.

How to watch

Here’s our recommendations:

  1. Get Vanished VPN
  2. Connect to our Russia VPN
  3. Check the TV guide to find out what’s on , then access the live stream.We recommend using a chrome browser as it can translate this site, and also allows you to chrome cast to the big screen.

FuboTV and Sling TV

Price: 45 USD/month and up

Channels: beIN Sports, FS1, FS2, ESPN, ESPN 2

Looking for an easy way to get started? You can catch the action on beIN SportsFox, or ESPN. The the easiest way to watch these channels is via fuboTV and Sling TV. Both offer a free trial.

Our final recommendation is Hotstar.com (connect via our India VPN). They have live streams available for all Bundesliga matches in HD (up to 720p). To view, you will need a premium membership (which is approx $3 per month, and has a 30 day free trial). This will allow you to view all premium content on the site including the latest films (in HD) and HBO (including GOT, Silicon Valley, Modern Family etc). Awesome value.

Note – This site is normally restricted to India residents, but we have unblocked it for you.

Once you are signed up, we recommend that you check out a few of the streams, and perhaps work out which device you will stream from , and how you will share to your TV if that’s what you intend to do.

How to watch India V Australia ODI Cricket

This guide shows you how to watch the India V Australia in the one day cricket series.

Big Picture

For the first time since being pumped by England in the World Cup semi-finals, Australia return to ODI cricket as they begin plotting their path for the next three-and-a-half years. India are both the hosts in 2023 and where Australia’s rejuvenation as a one-day side kicked into gear last year as they made a late sprint to be World Cup contenders with a memorable come-from-behind 3-2 series victory.

While some senior figures have been retained there is a fresh feel, particularly in the batting, with Peter Handscomb and Ashton Turner – both of whom starred on the last India tour before being squeezed out of the World Cup – back in the mix alongside the uncapped Marnus Labuschagne, who will be looking to transfer his stunning Test form into the one-day arena.

The ‘big three’ of the Test attack – Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins and Josh Hazlewood – are also back together while there has been an interesting decision to move away from a number of allrounders for a variety of reasons: Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis and Mitchell Marsh are currently lighting up the BBL.

How To watch

Here’s how to watch the streams legally & cheaply wherever you are in the world:

1 Get a VanishedVPN subscription if you don’t already have one (we have a 7 day money back guarantee so that you can try risk free).

2 Connect to our India VPN

3 Go to Hotstar.com, and sign up for a Hotstar premium account (follow our guide here if you need help with this).

4 Go to Cricket section of Hotstar & enjoy the cricket. Note, you may need to change the language settings to English (just click the settings icon in the bottom right corner of the screen)
