How to watch the Bundesliga abroad
If you’re a British viewer who is currently abroad and want to watch using your existing package, you can use a VPN. This will mean you can still appear as if you’re in the UK and retain access to all the location-restricted content.
Nord VPN is one of our top recommendations, but you can check out our
best VPN chart, which shows you all of the top services for accessing UK content from abroad.
What about if I don’t want to pay?
Unfortunately, as it stands you can’t watch the Bundesliga for free. Your best bet is to check BT Sport’s social media accounts for regular clips, while highlights will be uploaded to
its YouTube channel.
