Watch Copa America in US and Anywhere in the World via VPN service
With travel restrictions slowly easing out in the UK because of the accelerated vaccination programme and lower daily corovanirus cases, it’s likely you could be travelling abroad during the month-long tournament. If that’s the case, then you don’t need to worry because you’ll be able to access BBC iPlayer from abroad by simply using a good VPN service.
A VPN basically tricks your device into thinking that it’s based anywhere in the world that you want. You can then use this to stream content that geo-blocked in your location. Apart from accessing content that’s not available where you live, a good VPN service also protects your device by encrypting all your browsing traffic so that no one - not even your ISP - will know what you do when you go online.
While there are many free and paid-for VPN services, not all of them will give you access to BBC iPlayer from abroad. We’ve narrowed down our two favourite VPN services that do this regardless of where you live.
Four Steps to Watch via VPN:
- Get ExpressVPN.
- Connect to a server location in the UK.
- Sign up for BBC iPlayer. You may need to enter a valid UK postal code (e.g., WC1X 0AA).
- Start watching for free.
ExpressVPN: Among all the VPN services we’ve reviewed, ExpressVPN is the fastest and safest, providing speedy access to severs based anywhere in the world. One VPN subscription covers five devices and you get great features including 24/7 customer support, a strict no-logs policy and even a 30-day moneyback guarantee as standard.
NordVPN: Our second-best VPN shares many of the same features as ExpressVPN, including thousands of servers spread across the globe, 24/7 customer support and a strict no-logs policy. The PC app has a nice map-based interface letting you choose whichever server you want and you even have a 30-day moneyback guarantee if it doesn’t meet your expectations.

|Copa America 2021 Preview |
Like so many events in 2020, the Copa America had to be postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In March of that year, CONMEBOL, South American soccer’s governing body, pushed the tournament back a year from June and July 2020.
That’s not all CONMEBOL has altered about the event’s 47th edition. On May 20, 2021, the organization announced Colombia would no longer serve as an event co-host, due to ongoing protests against President Iván Duque Márquez. Ten days later, CONMEBOL stripped the other previously selected host nation, Argentina, of hosting duties, citing issues with COVID-19.
A day after that, the organization revealed Brazil would hold the event, which drew criticism from the nation’s team.
After the Selecao bested Ecuador 2-0 in World Cup qualifying on June 4, captain Casemiro suggested he and his teammates, along with manager Tite, opposed Brazil’s hosting the Copa America.
The nation, which is in the midst of a vaccine shortage, has lost 480,000 lives to COVID-19, more than any country other than the United States.
“Everyone knows our position in the Copa America in Brazil,” Casemiro told reporter Germán García Grova, according to a translation from Goal.com. “It could not be clearer. We want to express our opinion more after the game against Paraguay [on June 8].
“It’s not just me, not just the players who play in Europe. It’s everyone, including Tite. All together.”
In a statement released on June 9, the players condemned CONMEBOL’s actions but announced they’d still play in the tournament.
“When a Brazilian is born, a fan is born,” the players’ statement reads, according to Marca.
“For the more than 200 million fans, we write this letter to express our opinion about the Copa America outcome.
“We are a cohesive group, but we have different ideas. For many reasons, humanitarian or professional, we are not satisfied with the conduct shown by CONMEBOL ahead of this Copa America.
“All the recent events have led us to believe that there has been an inadequate process.
“At no point did we want to make this a political discussion. We’re aware of the importance of our position and we follow what is published by the media and what is on social media. We also try to prevent fake news from coming out with our names or with untrue facts.
