  1. Sign up for a suitable VPN. We recommend NordVPN, however, Surfshark and ExpressVPN are two great alternatives to consider.

  3. Open the app or browser extension and connect to a server in the UK to receive a UK IP address. This will trick websites into thinking you’re in the UK, allowing you to watch the UK Snooker Championship abroad.
  4. Now visit your preferred streaming service and try watching something. It should begin as normal, but if you’re still having trouble, we recommend you clear your browser’s cache and cookies.

The UK Snooker Championship will be broadcast live. You can avoid missing out by testing your VPN in advance. This then gives you enough time to contact your VPN’s customer support if there are any issues.
