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 guide I’m going to show you how to watch MatchTV.ru outside Russia from any country in the world.

If you’ve ever visited the matchtv.ru website you’ll know that outside of Russia it blocks you from viewing. Rather than seeing whatever show or sport is being shown you just get a blank screen.

There is every reason to want to watch MatchTV.ru outside Russia and if you’re a sport or Football fan in particular then you’ll love the selection they have available.

Quite often MatchTV.ru show football matches from competitions like the English Premier League, UEFA Champions League and the UEFA Europa League plus others such as the English FA Cup and many more.

The great news is the online stream from MatchTV.ru is completely free.

The only downside is if you’re not in Russia then it’s blocked but below I’m going to show you how you can avoid those blocks and watch MatchTV.ru from anywhere in the world.

How to watch MatchTV.ru outside Russia

If like me you’ve tried to watch something on MatchTV.ru outside of Russia and you’ve visited the website you’ll know that rather than being able to stream live TV you get an error message in Russian.

I’d love to tell you what the error message says but as I don’t speak Russian I can’t. I’ll sum up that it basically says you’re unable to watch because you’re outside the territory of Russia. You’ll see a screen like the one below:

MatchTV Blocked

When you visit the site the MatchTV.ru website checks your current location and when it sees that you’re not in Russia it blocks you.

Thankfully there is a really simple tool that will allow you to disguise your online location and virtually reside somewhere else. In this case, Russia.

This tool is called a VPN or using its full name, a Virtual Private Network.

A VPN is basically a service provided by a company that allows you to protect your online privacy and disguise your location. It comes in the form of a small piece of software that you can download for your PC or Mac. They’re also available for mobile and tablet devices too running Android or Apple iOS.

My recommended VPN service is ExpressVPN because they’ve got a huge 30-day money back guarantee, but there are others available too which I’ll cover below.

So keep reading below to find out the best place to get yourself a VPN service and how to use it to watch MatchTV.ru outside Russia.

Where to get a VPN for MatchTV.ru outside Russia

These days VPN services are available from thousands of companies. With the primary purpose of a VPN to protect your online privacy and online privacy being a huge concern for many users these days it means the choice of VPN services can be overwhelming.

The first and most important feature to consider is the provider must offer a Russian connection, also known as a Russian Server. This is what will enable you to watch MatchTV.ru outside Russia, without one you won’t be able to.

The second most important feature to consider is the speed of the service. Streaming video requires good speeds but unfortunately you can’t tell how fast a VPN service is going to be until you’ve signed up.

I’ve been testing a range of providers and unfortunately many do not support Russia but three that do are:

  1. ExpressVPN – Recommended
  2. NordVPN
  3. VyprVPN

Just click the orange button below to visit my recommended provider and sign up.

How do I use the VPN service to watch MatchTV.ru

In this example I’m going to show you how to watch MatchTV.ru using ExpressVPN but the process is exactly the same with other providers, just their app looks a little different. Basically all you need to do is connect to the Russian server on your VPN service’s app and then visit the MatchTV.ru website.

Let’s take a look how to do that using ExpressVPN.

  1. First visit the ExpressVPN website by clicking here and sign up for their service.
  2. Download the ExpressVPN Windows or Mac software from the Products section of their website. Or grab their app from your regular app store by searching ‘ExpressVPN’.
  3. Install the software and open it.
  4. Now press the Choose Location button.
  5. Then press All, then Europe, then scroll down and press Russia.
  6. If the app doesn’t automatically connect, press Connect.

ExpressVPN Russia

The ExpressVPN app will now make connection to Russia. It should take no more than 15-30 seconds.

Once it shows as connected any websites you visit will now think you’re in Russia and because of this you’ll be able to stream any sport or show from the MatchTV.ru live stream.

So head over to the Match.TV On Air section and watch what you desire!
