Read on to find out how to live stream Croatia vs Spain from anywhere in the world.
While there will be plenty of unauthorized streams of this Euro 2020 match, we don’t advise you to use them. The low resolution and possibility of being taken offline for copyright infringement mean they’re just not worth the risk. We’re only recommending official sources for streaming Croatia vs Spain. In fact, some of these streams are available for free. In this post, we’ll cover multiple options so you can watch the game from anywhere.
The majority of platforms showing Croatia vs Spain are region-locked. Traveling abroad means you’ll need to use a VPN in order to watch via your usual home streaming service.
How to watch Croatia vs Spain live online with a VPN
So what exactly is a VPN and how does it work? A VPN is a service that encrypts your device’s internet traffic, keeping it safe from hackers and snoopers alike. Connecting to a VPN server provides you with a change of IP address, allowing you to spoof your location and access geo-blocked websites from anywhere in the world.
Here’s how to live stream Croatia vs Spain using a VPN:
- Start by signing up with a VPN provider. We recommend NordVPN. However, Surfshark and ExpressVPN are also fast and reliable unblockers of content.
- The next step is to download and install the VPN app on your streaming device. Indeed, the above VPNs let you connect multiple devices simultaneously.
- Log in to the VPN app (or browser extension) and connect to a server in the same country as the streaming platform you’d like to unblock.
- Go to the streaming platform (via its website or app) and select a live stream. This should now play without restriction in your location.
- Is the content still blocked? You may need to clear your browser’s cookies. Another potential fix is connecting to a different server.
With Croatia vs Spain airing live, it’s a good idea to test your new VPN with your chosen streaming platform ahead of time. Doing so ensures you have time to troubleshoot any potential issues with your VPN’s customer support (and avoid missing out on the match!).
