How to stream UFC 248 even if you're outside the United States

You could be excited for UFC 248 but worried you won't get to watch because you'll be on holiday abroad this weekend. Streaming U.S. based sports like the UFC live can often be limited if you're outside of the country. That's because streaming services often block their feeds if you're not in America. However, your streaming subscriptions don't have to lose their value.

One way to get things working like you are used to is by using a VPN, which is short for "Virtual Private Network". It sends your internet traffic from far away through a specific set of servers, then pops it back into the United States. It can also give you security and peace of mind on open WiFi connections, because a VPN protects you against snoopers on any network.
