On Sunday 27th February 2016 Liverpool takes on Manchester City in the Capital One Cup Final live from Wembley.
If like me you want to watch the final live but you don’t have access to an expensive cable subscription then your options are extremely limited.
I’ve been searching high or low and found the easiest method to watch live online from any country in the world and it doesn’t involve going to any illegal websites.
If you’ve tried finding a live stream that doesn’t involve paying then like me you’ve probably come across hundreds of illegal websites that are not only against the law but there is a good chance they’ll fill your computer full of viruses.
The great news is there is a website from the US called Fubo.tv that allows you a free 24 hour trial and who will be showing the Liverpool v Manchester City Capital One Cup Final live online. With a small workaround you can watch from anywhere in the world.
So let’s find out how it’s possible.
Watch the Capital One Cup Final Live
If you visit the Fubo.tv website in the US you get access to all the networks including beIN Sports who are showing the match live. If you’re outside the US then nearly every network disappears and you’re left with 1 or 2 sport news channels and none that show actual football.
If you’re outside the US you’ll see this:
Rather than this:
Fubo.tv is geo-restricted to the US and to bypass this geo-restriction you need to use a service called a VPN.
A VPN allows you to virtually reside in any country in the world. When you use a VPN you can appear as if you are in the US even though in reality you’re in the UK, Australia, Canada, France or wherever else in the world.
So let’s find out where to get a VPN and how to use it to watch the Capital One Cup Final on Sunday.
Where to get a VPN for the cup final
A VPN is a tool to protect your privacy online and one of the features is to let you virtually reside in any country.
As privacy online is a hot topic these days it means there are thousands of companies all selling VPN services.
If like me you don’t have time to be searching through thousands of options then I’ve put together a list of three of the best VPN providers that are all suitable to watch the Liverpool v Manchester City Capital One Cup Final.
The first thing to do is choose one of the three providers below by clicking on their name.
A good VPN service will cost around $5-$10 (£4-£6) per month and you’ll only need a 1-month service to watch the Capital One Cup Final. There are of course other uses for the service so take a look around our site after the final to see what else you can watch.
Once you’ve signed up read below to see how to use the service to watch.
What to do next
Now you’ve signed up to a VPN service you should download their VPN Software from their website for either your PC or Mac.
Install the software and run it.
You should now select the United States and press connect. As an example using IPVanish this can be found by pressing Server Selection and then US Media or Gaming.
Once the software has made connection you are now virtually in the United States and any website you visit will think you’re in the US.
Now visit www.Fubo.tv and press Start For Free.
You should now follow the sign-up process. You’ll need to enter your credit card details but as long as you cancel the service before 24 hours are up you won’t be charged anything. You can of course keep the service if you want.
Once you’ve signed up all you need to do is navigate to the Liverpool vs Manchester City Capital One Cup Final page and enjoy the match!
