In order to view content with regional restrictions, such as the American NBC or the English BBC, we will need a VPN connection.
If we are looking for a quick solution, we just have to install some free application, such as TunnelBear, available for both PC and mobile devices and connect to a US or UK server.
The process to establish the connection is very simple:
- We install TunnelBear on our phone or computer.
- We open the application and select the place of connection (USA or UK).
- Once the connection is established, we just have to open the app or page of the NBC or BBC to see the games live.
TunnelBear offers a maximum of 1GB of free connection. If we want more, we will have to contract the paid version.
Another alternative is to use one of the most popular and consistent VPN services of the moment, NordVPN. Its operation is practically identical to that of TunnelBear, and for less than 10 euros per month we will have access and private browsing to watch the Winter Olympics from start to finish.You have Telegram installed?
