How To Stream Chicago Blackhawks Matches Out-of-Market
One of the greatest obstacles and annoyances of cord-cutting can be blackouts and the differences in available channels from market to market. When it comes to sporting events it can be even worse. However, there is good news and that news is VPNs or Virtual Private Networks. VPNs can be installed on virtually any device (smartphones, tablets, smart TVs, etc.). You can also use a device such as StreamLocator that has software already built-in. Visit the StreamLocator website to learn more.
A VPN allows you to “mask” your IP address by connecting to a server in another geolocation. This means that if you live in on the west coast but want to see a team from the east coast, you can just set your VPN to that location and you will get the channels in that local market. This even works for international customers who want to see US TV and sports.
You may be thinking to yourself, “I don’t know, this sounds complicated.” But do not worry, VPNs sound complicated, but they are actually very easy to install and operate. Most VPNs only require just a few clicks to operate and you will never deal with local blackout restrictions ever again.
We recommend using ExpressVPN. ExpressVPN has thousands of servers across the globe, is one of the fastest VPNs, and is very easy to use. You can get ExpressVPN for 3-months free by visiting the ExpressVPN website.
Illegal Streams of National Hockey League Games
It is our policy to never recommend any illegal streams of NHL games or anything else. Many illegal “free” streams put you at considerable risk to acquire viruses and dangerous malware. Most illegal streams are terrible quality and frequently go dark in the middle of a game. Do you want to risk missing the game’s biggest moment because a stream went down? We do not believe it is worth the risk by any means just to save a few bucks.
