Are you feeling feverish yet, because the World Cup is almost upon us. In less than 10 days, the greatest event in the world will be the talk of the town for an entire month. It is no doubt that a large number of football fans are already gearing up for the big occasion namely in purchasing the jerseys of the countries they support, flying to Russia to experience it firsthand or by subscribing to expensive services just to watch the games at home.
What if I tell you that you can still watch the 64 live games without paying $112.35? And no, it is not by feeding you free links on the web either. There will be some cost incurred, however, but it won’t be $100, it won’t be $50 and heck it won’t even be $30.
How does a very affordable $20 sound to you? Sounds awesome, yes? Read on as this article provides you with a good hack on how to enjoy Russia 2018 and still enable you to afford to pay for your meals daily.
1) SUBSCRIBE TO EXPRESS VPN
This is the very key to view all the 64 live matches for the World Cup. Once you have subscribed to Express VPN service, you can unlock some region locked websites and watch your favourite teams without having to pay any other additional cost.
Express VPN is my most favourite VPN service thus far. Not only it is stable, it has multiple servers across the globe for you to tap on. Costing only USD $12.95 (SGD $18.50), not only will this unlock some official websites that show free live matches but the VPN service will also protect your data and privacy whenever you log on to the internet. You can download the app on Windows, Mac, Android, IOS and even on Android TV
REQUIRED ITEMS TO SUBSCRIBE
a) Register to create an account on the website and follow the instructions. After you download and install the app on laptop open the app. Enter your account name and password to log in. Click here to register.
- Debit or Credit Card
- A valid email account
c) Press “ALL” as indicated on the picture below. You will get a list of continents. Press on “Europe”, followed by “UNITED KINGDOM”. You will then see a list of servers under “United Kingdom”. Choose any of it and press on it.
d) You will see something similar to the above picture. This means that you have successfully logged in to a UK server. Half of the battle is done. Do not quit the app. Just minimize it and ignore it for now.
2) LOG IN TO 2 UK WEBSITES
Assuming you are watching the matches on your laptop, you can either watch the matches on BBC IPLAYER or ITV. Both of these channels cover the 64 matches live for free. If a match is not on BBC IPLAYER, then it is on ITV. It is vice versa. You are required to create an account for both websites though. Go ahead and create your accounts.
b) You can find the full fixture of BBC Iplayer and ITV of Russia 2018 in this link. BBC means it is on BBC Iplayer and ITV means it is on ITV.com
3) REMEMBER TO CANCEL EXPRESS VPN SUBSCRIPTION
If you do not want to continue to subscribe to the VPN service, do remember to cancel it. All you need to do is to go to the Express VPN website and log in. Go to “MY ACCOUNT” from the top tab and look for Manage Settings as indicated in the illustration below.
Once you are on the Manage settings page, click on “Turn off automatic renewal” so that you won’t be charged for the next billing cycle. However, I strongly recommend not to unsubscribe as you can always use a VPN service when you are doing your online shopping or Internet Banking. A VPN service these days are more than necessary.
So that’s it folks. With these steps, you do not have to fork out that much money. Subscription for a World Event should be minimal, not a ridiculous amount that does not benefit you at all. Hope you get to watch your favourite teams go all the way to the finals! #germanyftw #russia2018 #worldcup2018
*Remember to also off the VPN service when you do not need to use it.
