How to watch NBC Sports Gold outside America



Chris, a UK-born media connoisseur, is an expert in watching international TV. Known as "The Global Screen Wanderer", he has travelled extensively across the globe with long stints away from home. With over 10 years of experience he has become the go-to guru for streaming content from home and abroad.

In this guide I’m going to show you how you can view NBC Sports Gold outside the US.

All it takes is the use of a small app called a VPN. This may sound more intimidating than it actually is. However it need not be, using a VPN from my recommended provider ExpressVPN you can be up and running in under 5-minutes.

Don’t worry if you’re not great with technology either as the VPN app takes care of all the technical side of things for you. All you need to do is click to connect and enjoy NBC Sports Gold outside America anywhere in the world.

Below I’ll show you how.

To watch NBC Sports Gold outside America you’ll need a VPN app.

VPN apps are offered by 101 different companies these days making it extremely confusing. Try typing ‘VPN’ into Google and you’ll end up with more choice than you know what to do with.

Lucky for you then that I’ve been testing them all and in my tests I found ExpressVPN to be the best for watching NBC Sports Gold outside America.

Not only do they have a massive 30-day money back guarantee making it totally risk-free. They also have 3-months free on their year package saving you 49% off the regular monthly price.

However, you’re likely to be a savvy shopper so will want to look around. In that case, my Top 3 VPN services for watching NBC Sports Gold outside America are:

NBC Sports Gold subscriptions

If you try and access the NBC Sports Gold website outside America then you’ll either be blocked entirely from accessing or you’ll have a severely restricted selection of packages to subscribe to.

If you connect to the United States with the ExpressVPN app you’ll be able to subscribe to all these packages and more:

  • Premier League Pass
  • Cycling Pass
  • Pro Motorcross Pass
  • Track and Field Pass
  • Figure Skating Pass
  • Speed Skating Pass
  • Rugby Pass
  • Blazers Pass

and many more.

If you’re not a United States resident then you can use a VPN from ExpressVPN to sign up to one of the packages and then stream the sports live in your country.

If you’re an American who already has a subscription or wants to get one but are outside the country then you can use the VPN to access, buy and watch all your favourite sports overseas.

How does a VPN work and is it legal

You’re probably wondering if a VPN is actually legal? The good news is VPN services are completely legal.

VPN apps are actually originally for privacy purposes so companies, the government and hackers can’t track you online.

They work by passing your data through another location. If for example you’re in Europe and you use a VPN, your data is first passed to the United States and then on to the NBC Sports Gold service.

NBC Sports Gold only see the request from the United States so rather than block you or offer up the reduced services, they offer the full service as if you were in America.

Recap: Stream NBC Sports Gold outside America

To watch NBC Sports Gold outside America either as a US Citizen or as a non-US Citizen you’ll need to get yourself a VPN app.

I recommend using ExpressVPN for this purpose because they’ve got a 30-day money back guarantee to allow you to test the service. If for some reason you can’t get it working then simply get a refund.

They’ve also got a deal today that lets you get 3-months entirely free if you take their year package. This saves you 49% off the price if you paid monthly so it’s well worth considering.

Visit ExpressVPN by clicking the pink button below and sign up for their service. Download and install their app on your device and then connect to the United States.

You’ll now be able to use the NBC Sports Gold website or open their app and watch from outside America anywhere in the world.

    HI Chris, I am in south africa. I have a couple of questions and any help would be greatly appreciated. I currently use a google chromecast app to watch on my tv. So if I get a VPN, would it then give me access to the google play store in the states? I ask this because if I search for the NBC gold app on my phone in the SA play store, nothing comes up. Secondly, do you know if the streaming service is chromecast compatible? Thats it for now. 🙂

      Hi Brett,

      Unfortunately it wouldn’t give you access to the US Google Play store. This is more based on your account location.

      However, once you have downloaded the app you’ll be able to use a VPN to watch it, otherwise it would be blocked.

      I’m not sure about the specific app and the Chromecast, although the VPN app itself probably won’t be compatible with the Chromecast. It would be easier using an Amazon Fire TV Stick, for example.

    Hi, I’ve done all this but my issue now is actually paying for a subscription because all my card details are registered in the UK so is there a way around this? It keeps saying something wrong everytime I enter my details.

    NBC GOLD requires location services ‘on’ so it detects you without regard to the VPN. I know because I returned recently to UK and tried to use my NBC subscription using NordVPN services..

    • Chris says:


      You should try watching on a laptop or computer, there are no requirements for locations services. Also works well on the Fire TV / Stick as there are no location requirements for that either.

      If you want to watch on a mobile/tablet it’s worth trying to put “Airplane Mode” on, then re-enable Wi-Fi and try again using the VPN.
