You can stream practically any sports with a VPN, as long as you have access to the streaming platform that the game you want to watch is being streamed on. You can use Proton VPN to stream ESPN+ and other sports streaming channels, in order to watch live football streams, wrestling, boxing, F1 racing, baseball, and more. In some cases, this requires downloading an app that is only available in certain locations. For some streaming platforms, you may need to have an account or a paid subscription to access the sports streams.

How to stream sports with Proton VPN
Why use Proton VPN for streaming sports?
Using Proton VPN to stream on-demand and live sports means you get to watch your favorite sports events without annoying lags or buffering. We created Proton VPN to enable everyone to watch the sports games of their choice, from anywhere. Proton VPN also adds an extra level of security to your sports streaming by hiding your IP address and bypassing censorship.
We do not impose any data restrictions or network throttling on Proton VPN, so you can be sure your sports streaming will remain uninterrupted. You can continue streaming the game on all your devices with up to 10 VPN connections on a Plus plan.
High speeds from anywhere
Server speed and location are essential components to streaming sports via a VPN. Our streaming servers are located in over 60 countries around the world and deliver high-speed connections of up to 10 Gbps, so you can stream any sports from anywhere.
Proton VPN helps you to stream sports while remaining secure, using only the strongest VPN protocols: OpenVPN, IKEv2, and WireGuard. In addition, all connections are protected with advanced encryption ciphers, such as AES-256 or ChaCha20, both of which are extremely safe.
Fast and reliable sports streaming
WireGuard is a lightweight VPN protocol that gives improved VPN speeds, better performance, and drains less battery power than other protocols — perfect for when you are streaming sports games from your laptop or mobile devices.
If you do not use a VPN, your ISP is able to see your online activity and can slow down your internet connection while streaming, leading to buffering and loading issues. Proton VPN hides your online activity from your ISP, preventing them from throttling your stream.
Even if there is a large distance between your device and the VPN server you are connecting to, our VPN Accelerator provides lightning-fast VPN connections. So even when you are traveling, you can still stream your home team’s sports game.

When you use Proton VPN, your internet provider cannot see your online activity, so will be unable to throttle your speeds. With Proton VPN’s unique VPN Accelerator technology, you will also experience over 400% faster speeds — meaning no buffering during your sports games streams.
