Who isn’t a fan of Nets in Brooklyn? It seems that every family in the city is watching the NBA games when they are online.
There are for US channels streaming NBA Games: ESPN, ABC, TNT, and NBA TV. A cable subscription allows you to stream through their official portals.
But there are far more alternatives to watching the games without a cable subscription. What are they? Among the most popular streaming services in the USA are FuboTV, SlingTV, DirecTV Now, PlayStation Vue. Unfortunately, you’d face geo-restrictions with those platforms. But it’s possible to avoid them with VPN for watching sports games.
Without further ado, let’s dive into the details!
Why watch The Nets with VPN?
Consider these arguments if you are a true fan of The Nets:
1) Availability based on your location
It depends on your actual location, not your subscription, when you want to watch games through streaming services. Therefore, if your geo-location is in the US, what games you’ll watch will be defined by it.
2) No access to local streams when traveling
As it has been mentioned above, streaming services let you watch games available for your location. Therefore, if you plan a trip abroad, you risk missing a game stream. And don’t forget about online safety when traveling for which VPN is also a must-have.
3) Subscriptions are cheaper for different locations
If you want to save a few dollars on pricing, it would be useful to check the tariffs in other countries. You just need to try various VPN servers and compare prices.
How does VPN work?
A few words about this technology…
When you connect to a VPN server, you become a “citizen of a foreign country” (virtually, of course). Your true IP address is changed, which makes you invisible to ISPs and other websites you visit.
They do identify the IP address– not yours but, instead, the one assigned by the VPN provider.
Other benefits of VPN:
- encrypted connections;
- secure protocols like OpenVPN, IPSec or L2TP;
- IP/DNS leak protection;
- kill switch to avoid data leaks;
- double VPN and others.
What VPN to choose?
You may have your own preferences and know what VPN to choose, but such a VPN for sports streams must have fast speeds to watch with lagging of the Internet. Moreover, you’ll need a wide network of US servers if you travel a lot or want to watch local games.
How to watch any game online with VPN?
You don’t need to be a programmer, to do it:
- Obtain a VPN subscription and set up on your device.
- Choose a fast US server and connect to it.
- Open your browser and be sure your cache is clear (not to reveal your location).
- Go to the streaming site you use and log in.
- Now you are ready to watch NBA Nets even outside Brooklyn.
