How to watch BT Sport in Australia



Chris has a passion for helping you watch your favourite TV abroad. When he isn't helping you he can be found watching football, browsing Netflix or watching a good documentary.

In this article I’m going to show you the easiest method to watch BT Sport in Australia.

If you’ve got a BT Sport account or know a family member or friend who has one in the UK and you’ve tried to log in online and watch it in Australia then you’ll find out like I did that you’re blocked from viewing.

If you’re trying to watch the football or any other sport then this can be pretty disappointing especially if you have no other way of watching while in Australia.

The great news is there is a really simple way how you can watch BT Sport online in Australia and it takes just a few minutes.

So let’s find out how to watch BT Sport in Australia.

How to watch BT Sport in Australia

When you visit the BT Sport website in Australia or anywhere out of the UK instead of being able to stream your favourite sport you’ll be hit with a message telling you it’s blocked.

An example of a block message you may see.

If you want to keep up with all the latest sporting action then the above message isn’t what you want to see.

Thankfully the method to watch BT Sport in Australia is really simple and all you need is a service called a VPN or Virtual Private Network to give it its full name.

A VPN is a tool that protects your online privacy and one of the features is it allows you to alter your online location and appear somewhere else.

With it you can pretend you’re in the UK so when you visit the BT Sport website it thinks you’re in the UK rather than Australia and streams you the sport you want to watch.

Some more good news is a VPN is really easy to use and comes as a small piece of software for your PC or Mac or even an app for your mobile or tablet.

Find out below where you can get a VPN and how to use it.

Where to get a VPN

There are many different companies offering VPN services as online privacy has become a big issue in recent years.

To stream video from BT Sport you need a fast VPN service and as they’re not all the same it can be costly trial and error trying to get a good service. Most VPN services cost between $6-$10 per month (approximately £4 – £8) so it could get expensive if you ended up trying different services.

Luckily I’ve been testing some of the better services to find out which works best for BT Sport and found that ExpressVPN works the best.

I’ve put together a list of three providers who all work well so feel free to pick any of the following or click the green button to go to my recommended choice.

  1. ExpressVPN – Recommended
  2. IPVanish
  3. NordVPN

Once you’ve visited and signed up continue reading below where I’ll show you how you can use the VPN to watch BT Sport in Australia.

How to use the VPN

Once you’ve signed up to a VPN provider you need to download their software or app depending on which device you want to use the service on.

You can find the software for Windows or Mac on the provider’s website or the app from the app store.

Once downloaded and installed select a United Kingdom server and connect. Once connected all you need to do is visit the BT Sport website and you’ll be able to stream all your favourite sports live.

Below I’ve put together a more detailed guide using ExpressVPN on a PC but the process is much the same with the two other providers too.

ExpressVPN :

  1. Visit the ExpressVPN website and sign-up.
  2. Download the Windows software from the Products area.
  3. Install and run the software.
  4. Sign-in when required.
  5. Press Selected Location and then United Kingdom.
  6. Press Connect.
ExpressVPN app connecting to the UK.

Watch BT Sport using ExpressVPN.

Connection will take about 15 seconds.

Once connected all you need to do is head over to the BT Sport website and log in to your account.

You can now select any video or live stream and rather than see the block message you’ve seen before you’ll now be able to watch without any problems.

Enjoying watching BT Sport in Australia.
