How to Watch the World Cup Online

Football for asylum seekers

Are you frustrated with Norwegian commentary, or do you want to watch the football coverage from your home country?

Well, that's been quite the start to the World Cup hasn't it! There were massive upsets, more goals than expected, late winners, and heck, even VAR has been more exciting than expected.

However your home nation is getting on (if they're even in it, sorry Irish, Welsh and Scottish fans!), one of the frustrations of watching major tournament football online is watching the game you want, with commentary in the language you want. That's where a VPN comes in so handy.

Watching online in Norway

The 2018 World Cup rights in Norway are split between state broadcaster NRK and commercial operator TV2. While most people can pick up the channels through their TV, it's a different story online where only NRK is streaming the games for free. TV2 requires a subscription to their Sumo service.

How to use a VPN?

You can simply use a VPN to login to a country that is broadcasting the game for free, and with the language of commentary that you prefer. Best of all, it's super simple.

1. Download a VPN: PureVPN is compatible with all of your devices, supports most streaming services and ranks amongst the fastest available online. Right now there's some great deals on offer to tie in with the football.

2. Connect to the server location: Simply open the VPN app, hit ‘choose location' and select the appropriate location. Do you want to watch the BBC coverage? Then simply head to London/UK.

3. Head to the broadcaster's live stream: If you know exactly what station you're hoping to catch the game on, then head there and enjoy!
