How to watch PDC TV abroad
Lee is an avid 80's action fan classing 300, Predator and Terminator among his favourites. When he's not binging movies he can be found keeping fit, attending Comic Con and wearing Star Wars socks of all things.
There is no sport quite like Darts, it pulls in huge crowds to each event from all around the world.
PDC TV is the ultimate place to watch PDC Darts, but there is a problem. Unless you are living in the UK, it will be inaccessible to you, which is rather frustrating, to say the least.
Whether you are travelling and wish to access the channel from whatever country you are in, or perhaps you are an international Darts fan who wants to tune in and watch the latest World Championships, you will need some help to do either of these.
In this article I’ll be showing you how to unlock your PDC TV subscription from abroad in as little as 5 easy steps.
But first, let’s cover some of the basics.
What you will need
To access your PDC TV subscription in any country, you will need to use an app called a VPN.
A VPN (Virtual Private Network) is an online security tool that you can download onto your device that will give you the ability to connect to servers located all over the globe.
Why is this useful?
Well, say that you are on holiday in Spain, your PDC TV subscription won’t work due to regional restrictions.
However, by using a VPN, you will be able to connect to a UK server and trick the PDC TV website into believing you are still in the UK, giving you full access to your subscription and all the Darts content you want.
VPNs are excellent for unblocking content from all around the world.
Where to get a VPN
If you do a quick search for ‘VPN’, you will be overwhelmed by the amount of choices you have.
I’ve tested all the VPN apps recommended by the big sites and in my experience found ExpressVPN is the best VPN provider around.
ExpressVPN claims to be the world’s fastest VPN service, so I put their VPN through my speed tests, and they weren’t lying.
They offer high-speed connections that will allow you to stream the latest PDC Darts content to your devices in full 4K HD.
They also have a large amount of UK servers that you can connect to, so you’ll find a connection with no problems at all.
ExpressVPN have a very reasonable pricing structure, the best deal is their 12-month package which offers a significant discount compared to the monthly package. Plus it comes with 3 months completely free which is a bargain!
With dedicated apps that cover most of the popular devices such as iOS, Android, Windows, macOS, and others, you can stream PDC TV on all of your devices.
If for some reason you feel ExpressVPN isn’t the right VPN for you, they offer a 30-day money-back guarantee… but I doubt you will ever need to use that.
You may also want to check out NordVPN and CyberGhost VPN, both will solve your VPN needs, providing you with a great service.
The choice is yours!

What devices can I watch on?
In February 2019 PDC TV released apps for iOS and Android devices.
However, you can still watch the channel without the app by visiting the PDC TV website and logging into your account there.
As mentioned previously, VPNs have apps that cover all of the popular devices that you have, such as iOS, Android, Windows, MacOS, Fire TV, and Linux.
Will I need a PDC TV subscription?
To watch PDC TV you will need to have a subscription to their service.
They have multiple options that you may choose from, such as their FREE option that will give you access to all of the interviews and highlights from the darting world.
However, you may wish to pay a small fee to access all of the above and access to full coverage of the European and World Championships plus additional TV content. This will cost £4.99/month, which isn’t a bad deal at all.
Or, you may wish to pay for a year upfront for £49.99, this is a slight discount when compared to paying monthly (17% discount). As an additional perk, you’ll also receive priority ticket sales before they are released to the public.
What else can I watch with the VPN?
When using your VPN, you will be able to access geo-restricted content from services such as BBC iPlayer, Sky Go, and other sites and apps that you wouldn’t be able to access outside of the UK.
You can also access other regions Netflix libraries and Disney+ content while you are sitting on a beach abroad.
By using a VPN, you will take your devices to the next level, accessing content from around the world with the click of a button.
To watch PDC TV abroad, you will need to use a VPN.
ExpressVPN is my number 1 recommendation when it comes to VPN services, they have the fastest connections, world-class servers, great customer service, and a 30-day money-back guarantee.
