Watch Copa America in Ireland on Eir Sport

In Ireland, you can watch Copa America on Eir Sport channel. Eir Sport is one of the best places to watch sport in Ireland.

Eir Sport (stylised as eir Sport; formerly Setanta Sports) is a group of Irish television sports channels operated by Eircom Sport Limited, a subsidiary of Eir.[1] In December 2015, Eir purchased original Setanta Sports operations in the Republic of Ireland, which the company rebranded as Eir Sport on 5 July 2016.

Eir Sport services are included in the cost of the Eir Sport package on Eir Broadband. Eir Sport services are also available through Sky Ireland, Eir TV and Vodafone TV.

The channels were previously available to the customers of what is now Virgin Media Ireland. In February 2010, the Setanta Ireland channel was available to entire subscribers of the cable TV provider as a basic channel in Ireland, around 1.3 million homes but actually in about 530,000. From August 2016, Virgin Media Ireland no longer has Eir Sport (and BT Sport) channels available to customers.

Can I watch Eir Sport on a mobile or tablet?

Definitely! ExpressVPN has support for all major devices.

As well as supporting Windows and Mac OS computers they also have really simple apps for Android and iOS mobile and tablet devices too. So if you’ve got some form of Android tablet or phone or an iPad or iPhone then you can unblock and watch Eir Sport on them.

ExpressVPN also supports Linux and Amazon Fire TV Stick devices. If you’ve got a Fire Stick then you’ll be able to use the ExpressVPN app and then possibly use the Firefox or Silk Browser app to visit the Eir Sport website. Although in theory this should work I haven’t tested it.

Watch Copa America in Ireland on BBC iPlayer

If you want to watch BBC iPlayer in Ireland, what can you do?

Well, the good news is you can use a VPN (Virtual Private Network) that will allow you to connect to server locations around the world (including UK server options).

You’ll be changing your virtual location (IP address), by connecting to a UK server and using a host of UK IP addresses to make it appear as if you’re in the UK.

One of the many benefits of using a VPN is you can watch BBC iPlayer in Ireland. So what are you waiting for? Let’s find out how.

When you try to access British TV content such as the BBC iPlayer website in the Republic of Ireland (or any other countries outside the UK) you’re blocked from watching. Instead of being able to access BBC TV content, you’re hit with an annoying block message that looks something a little like this:

That means you’re missing out on some of BBC’s best programmes such as Doctor Who, Fawlty Towers, Blue Planet, and many other great shows.

To avoid this block and access BBC iPlayer from Ireland you’ll need to get yourself a VPN from a provider like ExpressVPN.

ExpressVPN has a very large server base that you’ll be able to connect to from Ireland. Selecting a UK server has never been easier and in general, the user experience is great. You’ll have a UK IP address in no time and will be streaming BBC from their global iPlayer from Ireland in double quick time.

VPN apps are available for all types of devices from regular computers running Windows or Mac OS all the way through to phones and tablet such as Android and Apple (iPad & iPhone).

It’s even possible to watch on a Smart TV and you can read further down in this guide for details on how to do that.

A VPN is going to set you back a couple of Euro per month and nearly every VPN service charges in US Dollars.

However, if you’re a little sceptical you can just sign up for 1-month to try and most services offer a money-back guarantee if you can’t get it working.

ExpressVPN is one of the best VPN services you can use to access BBC iPlayer which has all of the BBC’s programmes from each of their live channels.

How to unblock BBC iPlayer in Ireland Step-by-Step

Just follow the 4 steps below and you can be watching one of the best streaming services, BBC iPlayer from Ireland in just a few minutes.

  1. Visit our recommended VPN provider ExpressVPN and sign up for their service (the most cost-effective service plan is their 12-month option). They offer a 30-day money-back guarantee if you’re not happy or you can’t get it working.
  2. Go to the Products area of the website and download and install ExpressVPN to your device. If you’re using a tablet or mobile device, you’ll find ExpressVPN in your app store.
  3. Open the app and from the server list select a United Kingdom (UK) server.
  4. Click the Connect button if it doesn’t automatically connect.

How to watch iPlayer on a Smart TV in Ireland

If you’ve got a Smart Television and you’ve wondered how to watch BBC iPlayer in Ireland on it then there are a few requirements. To do this you’ll need:

  • A Smart Television with the BBC iPlayer app already installed on it.
  • An internet connection (obviously).
  • The ability to change your ‘DNS Settings’.

To check if you can change the ‘DNS Settings’ on your TV you should search Google for the make and model of your TV plus the word ‘DNS Settings’ to see if you can find instructions on how to change them. Usually, these settings are under the Network Settings of your TV.

Most TVs such as Sony Smart TVs, Panasonic TVs and Samsung TVs allow you to change the DNS Settings.

Once you’ve confirmed you can change the DNS Settings on your TV just follow the steps below.

  1. Visit the website of ExpressVPN and sign up for their service.
  2. Once you’ve signed up use your account details to sign in the DNS Settings section of your account..
  3. Register your IP Address with their service and follow any further instructions.
  4. From the MediaStreamer section write down MediaStreamer IP #1 and MediaStreamer IP #2.
  5. On your, Smart Television go to edit the DNS settings and change the current settings to the numbers you wrote down and save them. You may want to copy down the current numbers already entered on your Smart Television in case you want to revert back to the originals.
  6. If required, restart your TV.
Watch Eir Sport outside Ireland

If you want to watch Eir Sport outside Ireland then the only way to do it is to get a VPN app.

A VPN allows you to pretend you are in Ireland which unblocks the Eir Sport website or app.

I recommend you sign up for ExpressVPN. They’ve got a huge 30-day money back guarantee. This allows you to test the service for an entire month. If you can’t get it working or for some other reason you don’t want to keep it, just get a refund.

It’s also worth getting their 12-month package because it works out 49% cheaper than paying on a monthly basis, they even throw in 3-months free giving you a total of 15-months for the price of 12.

If you want to watch Eir Sport outside Ireland click the button below to visit ExpressVPN. Sign up for their service and download their app.

Then connect to Ireland. Once it’s connected you’ll be able to use the Eir Sport website or their app and watch from anywhere in the world.
