    Using NBC Sports to watch Premier League games (including ours)


    0 Not allowed!
    So does anyone know if there's anything stopping us from signing up to the $50 Premier League pass and using the NBC Sports app behind a VPN in order to watch Premier League games you can't otherwise get over here, such as today's game at Leicester?

    Obviously you're not MEANT to do it, but seeing as they accept PayPal payment, which doesn't require an address, and you can fool their site into thinking you're in the US with a VPN, is this a pretty cost effective way of getting the games?

    $50 works out at 39 and it's a one off payment for the whole season so way cheaper than a Sky Sports or BT subscription, plus you get more games.

    Anyone tried this?

      I believe you need an existing cable sub, no?

      Oh balls.

      So you need to find a friendly American with cable.

      Been a while since I checked in with my cousin in Atlanta. Must be time for a catch up...

      I can confirm you do NOT need a cable sub. It's a streaming service.

      So Sqid, your plan might work

      You're right. It DOES work.

      It's up on my TV right now, super smooth. Just waiting to see how much delay there is

      Is it still 0-0 on your TV? Happier times.

We've got dogs on the field, we've got Hereford fans coming across to attack the Brighton players, we've got riot police, we've got stewards, we've got everything here that football shouldn't have. The Brighton players have gone across to their fans, and Albion remain in the football league"

      Hey, need some help regarding NBC and Paypal.

      1. I created a PayPal account and added $50 to it.
      2. I signed up at NBC
      3. Now I want to pay and I choose that I live in the US and entered a US Zip code (Denver)
      4. Now I choose Paypal as payment and a new window comes up (from PayPal) and it asks me to enter my CC info.....

      Will the money be taken from my CC? I thought it would be taken from my PayPal account?

      Confused. (never used PayPal before)

      I have US VPN.

      You should have an option to sign in to your own PayPal account. Because you're behind the VPN it isn't recognising you so isn't directing you to your account page and instead assumes you want to set up a new payment through PayPal. Look for the option to sign in to your own account

      I am logged in, it even says smth like "securely logging in" for 5 seconds and then I can see the fields to enter my credit card info and I also see my billing address.


      Edit: I haven't added CC info in my Paypal account - if that matters.
      I used bank transfer.

      Im also using different email addresses for NBC and paypal

      Will they cover every BHAFC PL game on the PL pass that SKY/BT are not?
