Why choose a VPN to watch F1 on Sky Sports outside UK
A UK VPN gives access to all geo-restricted content, keeps the user’s data safe from threats, and provides anonymity. By creating a secure encrypted tunnel, VPN secures user location and data ensuring no one knows what you are doing when connected. You IP address is masked and replaced with one from the United Kingdom.
We tested Sky Sports without VPN using our local IP address which immediately displayed a geo-restriction message with our location clearly marked in the message.
We used Ivacy VPN to mask our IP address& location and then connected using the Hong Kong based provider. We had finally unblocked seamless HD streaming on Sky Sports and were also able to register an account for the ongoing Formula 1 Grand Prix.
