How to watch BBC iPlayer anywhere to see all the matches of the World Cup?

In England, BBC has the broadcasting rights to the whole World Cup. It means they broadcast live the 64 matches. You can't watch it online outside UK, but with the trick I'm going to show you, you'll be able to watch it.

Getting around this notice is fairly easy; all you need to do is obtain an IP address from the UK. Therefore, we will be able to watch the World Cup 2022 no matter where we are in the world.

Getting an English IP address is simple using a VPN (Virtual Private Network). CyberGhost is my go-to VPN service because they have dedicated UK servers just for streaming BBC iPlayer.

Using this VPN is as easy as clicking a button, and it works with any device. It has a lightning-fast connection, so the soccer matches will be streamed without interruption or delay.

How to watch all World Cup Games:

Step 1: Get CyberGhost VPN and open it

You can watch BBC iPlayer from any device with CyberGhost VPN, a quality VPN service. You get 7 simultaneous installs with just one account.

Step 2: Connect to the dedicated UK server for BBC iPlayer

If you want to use Cyberghost's streaming-ready server, all you have to do is double-click the BBC iPlayer icon in the "For streaming" section of the menu. Smartphones are the same in every way.

Step 3: Register on the website of BBC iPlayer

In the top left, select Sign in, and then "Register now." You must be over the age of 16 to continue. Please provide an email address and password.

Select "United Kingdom" as your nation and enter a London postal code there, such as CF83 8EN or CF83 8EX. In the end, sign up by hitting the "Register Now" button.

Other free foreign channels broadcasting the world cup

Like SRF, there are also other foreign TV channels that broadcast the World Cup matches free of charge. For example, the Belgian channel RTBF and the English channel BBC are broadcasting the games.

Which VPN should I use to unblock these channels and watch all the World Cup games?

The legal VPN that works best to unblock foreign channels is called CyberGhost VPN. Why this one? Because on its application, it has a category "For streaming" where you have a list of different TV channels that you can unblock. So you can for example watch the live stream of SRF and BBC which are broadcasting the whole World Cup.

NordVPN and ExpressVPN are two other trusted VPNs that manage to unblock almost as many live TV channels as CyberGhost. They also have a shorter warranty than CG (30 days vs. 45 days for CG) but are efficient and work on all devices.

Why not use a free VPN?

Free VPNs will unfortunately not allow you to watch a live channel because you will have a very poor quality and incessant video cuts. Moreover, most free VPNs are already blocked by the TV channels' websites.
