Football on TV with remote

In this guide I’m going to show you how you can watch Eleven Sports outside Taiwan.

If you’re looking for a cheap and reliable way to watch the majority of English Premier League Football matches then Eleven Sports from Taiwan is definitely worth considering.

Unfortunately accessing Eleven Sports is restricted to users in Taiwan but in this article I’m going to show you the extremely easy way that you can access and watch all the football action from anywhere in the world.

Eleven Sports costs NT$759 per year in Taiwanese Dollars which is roughly US$24 or £20.

That’s a great price especially as you get access to most EPL matches and also the FA Cup, League Cup, EFL, Scottish Premier League and the Italian Serie A.

So let’s find out how you can watch Eleven Sports outside Taiwan from anywhere in the world.

How to watch Eleven Sports outside Taiwan

If you’ve tried to access the Eleven Sports website outside Taiwan then you’ll know you’re blocked from viewing and instead of being able to stream the sports you want to watch you’re faced with the following screen.

Eleven Sports website blocked

If you’ve already got an Eleven Sports account then the above screen will stop you from logging in and if you don’t even have an Eleven Sports account yet then you won’t be able to sign-up.

The good news is there is a really simple product called a VPN (Virtual Private Network) that allows you to alter your online location and when using one you can trick the Eleven Sports website into thinking you’re in Taiwan. Rather than see the above screen you’ll be able to access the site like normal.

When you visit the Eleven Sports website it checks something called your IP Address and from this IP Address it can determine your location.

A VPN allows you to get an IP Address from another location. So if you’re in the UK you can use the VPN to get an IP Address from Taiwan and Eleven Sports will then stream you all the EPL action.

So let’s find out where you can get a VPN from.

Where to get a VPN for Eleven Sports

There is tons of choice when searching for a VPN service which can leave you confused and it’s not simply a case of signing up for any VPN service or even just the cheapest one.

The first thing to look out for is they need to offer a Taiwan “Server” and the second is that they’re fast enough to stream video.

I’ve tested some of the best VPN services that have Taiwan “Servers” and are fast enough to stream video and the following three are my recommendations to watch Eleven Sports outside Taiwan.

  1. ExpressVPN
  2. VyprVPN
  3. HideMyAss

All you need to do is click one of the names above or click the green button to visit my number 1 recommended provider and sign-up.

A VPN service will cost you around $10 per month or less depending on how long you sign-up for.

Once you’ve signed up keep reading below where I’ll show you how to use the VPN to watch Eleven Sports outside Taiwan.

How to use the VPN

Using the VPN service is really easy.

First you need to decide what device you want to watch on. All three providers offer software for Windows PC and Mac and apps for Android and iOS mobile and tablet devices.

You can switch between devices no problem but first you should decide which you want to watch on initially.

Download the software from the provider’s website or the app from the relevant app store.

Install and run. Login when required. Next select a Taiwan “Server” and press connect.

Once it has connected you can visit the Eleven Sports website and stream live football without an issue.

When you’ve finished simply disconnect.

Below I’ve put together a step-by-step guide using my recommended provider ExpressVPN.

ExpressVPN:

Visit the ExpressVPN website and sign-up.

Download the Windows software from the “VPN Apps” area of their website

Install and Run the software.

Login when required.

Press “Select Another Location“.

Press “All Locations“. Double Click “Asia Pacific“.

Double click on “Taiwan“.ExpressVPN Taiwan

The ExpressVPN software will now make connection.

Once connected all you need to do is head over to the Eleven Sports website.

If you already have an account you can login like normal.

If you don’t have an account then you can proceed to sign-up. Once your account is active you can log in.

When you finished watching the football all you need to do is disconnect from the VPN. You can reconnect at any time and watch from anywhere in the world.

    There is something to add here and it is that sometimes you get some slowness from VPN’s. In order to avoid that slowness , you can just use the Vpn to connect to Eleven Sports and click on watch live, after that you can disconnect from VPN getting the whole speed from your ISP without any problem to be discovered outside the Taiwanese territory. I did it and is working perfect (Actually some minutes ago could watch West Bronwich vs Brunley) 🙂
