We all live for the next big fight. It’s what keeps life interesting during a lull, and gives us relief during times of tension. Lately, we’ve needed a lot of relief from everything happening in the world.
But there aren’t unlimited fights, and chances are you don’t have access to them all. Some fights are only available on networks in certain countries, while others require expensive contracts on local networks.
The good news is that there is a simple way to unlock fights from all over the world and plenty more boxing content that you can stream online.
Here is what you need to know.
Download a VPN
Downloading a virtual private network (VPN) can be quick and easy if you know what you're looking for. Essentially, a VPN is security software that hides your location and encrypts your data. In doing so, it makes it look like you are in the location of the server.
Therefore, if you use a server in a certain country, it looks to websites you visit like you are accessing the web from that country.
This is useful not only for live boxing matches, but for plenty of movies, series, and documentaries. You can use your VPN to see content that you wouldn’t know existed in other countries, ensuring you always have something to watch, even when there is no big game happening locally.
Here is what you need to do.
Find a VPN for streaming
The ability to stream content is, technically, an indirect consequence of using a VPN. They are primarily for important security concerns. For this reason, you need to choose a VPN that specifically works for streaming.
A few years back, services like Netflix, Prime Video, and more started banning the use of VPNs while streaming. The good news is that many VPNs have found a way to circumvent this ban. Not all have made this a priority, so make sure the VPN provider you choose specifically promises streaming capabilities. Read more on how to watch Netflix from restricted countries.
Buy a subscription
There are free VPNs, but they either don’t work or severely limit your bandwidth. A paid subscription should cost no more than $10 a month. If you choose to pay for a year upfront, you can get massive discounts of around 50%.
Most VPN providers do offer a 30-day money-back guarantee, so you can try it before you commit for good. It is worth taking some time to figure out how it works, whether it works for streaming the content you want, and whether it slows down your system
Locate the best shows
There are plenty of boxing series and movies on Netflix. However, many of them are available in different countries. While Netflix in the US may not have distribution rights to certain content, Netflix in countries like Japan, Hong Kong, and others often do.
How do you locate where these shows are available? You can use the unofficial Netflix global search, which will tell you exactly which countries you can watch certain content in.
