Luckily, there is a way for those of us that want to ditch Cable TV yet can't live without our local sports teams. By using a VPN, or virtual private network, your home's exact location is masked. Teams then cannot determine if you are within their blackout "range", thus allowing you to watch whatever sports team you want.
Our favorite VPN service — and one of the most respected — is ExpressVPN. I personally use ExpressVPN, so I can vouch that they work for this exact use-case.
A VPN hides where you actually are on the internet. After purchasing their service, you get an IP address that is registered from some far-away place (think Germany, Italy or Seattle), and that IP is either entered into your home internet broadband router or via their downloaded "VPN app". This IP address acts as a disguise to the various major sports teams that attempt to "blackout" their streaming services for those of us that can simply watch it on our TVs or computers.
There are many different VPN services available,and you can view a more complete list here.
