Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe live

This year’s Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe will take place on October 2 at 3:00 PM CEST (2:05 PM BST/ 09:05 AM EST). Of course, this is just one of the day’s seven races. In this post, we’ll explain how to live stream the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe from abroad.

It’s important to note that we’ll only be recommending official sources for this event. Given this race’s popularity, unlicensed streams are almost inevitable. Despite this, we advise against using them. To start with, the video is often laggy and low-resolution; not ideal for a fast-paced sport. Further, unauthorized streams can be taken offline at any moment for copyright violation. Luckily, you can easily watch the 2022 Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe for free anyway, so there’s no need to resort to shady, unreliable streams.

The 2022 Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe will only be shown on geo-restricted platforms. As such, you’ll need a VPN to watch on your usual home services if you are traveling abroad.

How to watch the 2022 Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe abroad with a VPN

Most streaming services are region-locked, meaning they only work in specific countries. By connecting to a Virtual Private Network (VPN), you can spoof your IP address and trick sites into thinking you’re actually somewhere else in the world. This sounds complicated but it’s actually quite simple; just follow the steps below.

Here’s how to watch the 2022 Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe online from anywhere:

  1. Start by signing up for a VPN if you haven’t already. We recommend NordVPN, but ExpressVPN and Surfshark are both excellent alternatives.
  2. Next, download and install the relevant VPN app for your device.
  3. Log in and connect to one of your VPN’s servers, we recommend a UK server. This will grant you a UK IP address and allow you to use British streaming services like ITV Hub from abroad.
  4. Create an ITV Hub account. This is completely free and should only take a second. Note that during registration, you’ll be asked for your postal code, but there’s no verification in place so any valid postal code will work.
  5. Finally, try watching a live stream on ITV Hub. It should load instantly but if not, we’d recommend trying a different server or clearing your browser’s cache and cookies before trying again.

These races will be broadcast live and typically only last a few minutes. As such, we strongly recommend taking a few minutes to make sure your VPN works well ahead of time. This way, if you have any issues, you’ll still have time to get help from your VPN’s customer support team and won’t have to miss the start of the race.
