How to watch UFC 248 outside the U.S.
ESPN+ blocks UFC pay per view content outside the United States. That doesn't mean you have to miss out if you're outside America, though. You can use a VPN to move your internet traffic to the U.S. so you're allowed to watch it.
Note that if you're watching the game on your phone (or streaming it to a smart TV), all you need to do is install it on the device. If you want to watch the game via an app on an Android TV, however, it gets a bit more complicated — you'll need a router that supports internal VPNs. Our recommended VPN is below.
