How to watch the England cricket tour of New Zealand online

England’s 2019 tour of New Zealand will take place from October 27 to November 10 with matches typically taking place at 2 AM GMT (9 PM EST / 2 PM local time). The tour consists of two T20 practice matches followed by five Twenty20 internationals (T20I). You don’t need to travel all the way to New Zealand to watch the England cricket tour of New Zealand. In fact, a Virtual Private Network (VPN) lets you live stream every single match from abroad.

In this article, we’ll only be recommending official sources for watching the England cricket tour of New Zealand. We don’t advise the use of unlicensed streams for a couple of reasons. First, they tend to offer poor image quality and are frequently interrupted by lag and buffering. Second, unauthorized streams can be taken offline for copyright infringement. There’s simply no need to risk missing the New Zealand v England cricket because there are a number of quality official sources to choose from.

The England tour of New Zealand will only be shown on region-locked platforms. This means you’ll need a VPN to watch it abroad.

How to watch New Zealand v England cricket live online

Whether you’re not sure how to set up a VPN or how to use it to live stream the England cricket tour, we’ll take you through it all, step-by-step.

Here’s how to watch New Zealand v England cricket online from anywhere:

  1. Start by signing up with a VPN service. We recommend ExpressVPN. However, NordVPN and CyberGhost are two alternatives that offer great value for money.
  2. Download and install the appropriate VPN app or browser extension for your device.
  3. Open the VPN or browser extension and connect to a server in the UK for Sky Sports, the US for Willow TV, or Australia for Fox Sports. You’ll then have a UK, US, or Australian IP address for watching New Zealand v England abroad.
  4. Clear your browser’s cache and cookies. This ensures that your previous IP address and location are forgotten and that the new IP address of the VPN is accepted.
  5. Go to your preferred service (Sky Sports, for example) for watching the England cricket tour of New Zealand. If you haven’t already, you’ll need to sign up/subscribe.
  6. All content (including live streams) should be unblocked and ready to watch!

It’s a good idea to test your VPN in advance of a New Zealand v England match. You’ll then have time to contact the customer support of your VPN should any issues arise.

England’s tour of New Zealand will be shown live on Sky Sports Cricket. This means that existing Sky Sports customers can watch live online via the Sky Go app at no extra cost. If you’re not a Sky Sports customer, the complete Sky Sports package costs £23 a month on top of a Sky TV subscription.

Another option is a Now TV pass which lets you watch Sky Sports without signing a long-term contract. The following passes are available: Day Pass (£9.99), Week Pass (£14.99), and Month Pass (£33.99).
