Removing Blackout Restrictions

Luckily, there is a way for those of us that want to ditch Cable TV yet can't live without our local sports teams. The technology is called a VPN, and it allows you to mask the internet's IP address (how the teams determine if you are within their "range" or not) of your home.

Our favorite VPN service - and one of the most respected - is ExpressVPN. I use ExpressVPN, so I can personally vouch for them.

Removing Blackout Restrictions

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 or Italy), and that IP is entered into your home internet broadband router. 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 TV. Now, this is not a problem for most unless 1) You don't have cable, or 2) You don't want cable.
