How to watch the World Cup Final abroad
If you are a UK resident and want to watch the World Cup abroad, you can do so
using a VPN. BBC iPlayer and ITV’s online streaming services are geo-locked, meaning you can only watch them if you’re physically in the UK.
A VPN is a way around this if, say, you are on holiday and want to watch a match. A VPN lets you access geo-blocked content abroad by allowing you to connect to a server based in a different location – in this instance the UK.
NordVPN, an affordable and reliable VPN service.
