Change Your IP Address To Stream The 2014 FIBA Basketball World Cup
The 2014 FIBA Basketball World Cup is quickly coming up, and it looks like it will be an exciting competition. From August 30 to September 14, 24 teams will be fighting it out in Spain to work out who is the best basketball team in the world.
This world cup is always a highly anticipated event, and this year is particularly special because there won’t be another tournament for five years, instead of the normal four. The games should be exciting to watch,
For Americans, the tournament is a fantastic chance to get your basketball fix in, particularly as the regular season for NBA is quite some time away. It also offers the chance to see how the American team performs against the other teams in the championship – and it’s always exciting to see just who is going to come out on top.
The FIBA championships aren’t just relevant to people in the United States. Regardless of whether your team is in the championship, there is going to be some fantastic basketball games to watch and amazing playing.
After all, there’s always something amazing about watching the different play styles and approaches of teams from around the world. However, actually watching the games can be either really easy or really difficult depending on where in the world you are.
This is where changing your IP address can be very useful.
The thing is, your IP address acts as an identifier for who you are and more importantly, where you are. So, if you are trying to watch something from the United States, your IP address will let any website you visit know that.
Now, for the FIBA championships, being in the United States is a good thing, because ESPN streams a lot of the games, but if you are outside of the United States, you might not be so lucky. So, what you do is use a VPN.
VPNs are amazing programs and personally, I love them. A VPN will let you access content that you simply aren’t supposed to because of where you are in the world and it will let you do this even in the most turbulent of times.
It does this because a VPN is a secure network. It masks what you are doing online and keeps you private. Many people actually use them for privacy and security features alone – after all, if you have a government looking over your shoulder, you’d want all the security you can get too.
The beauty of the VPN is that by protecting you like this, it also hides your IP address. In fact, it masks over your IP address and anyone looking sees the IP address of the server rather than yours. This means that if the VPN server is in a different country, what you can (and can’t) do online is related to that country, rather than your own.
So, the trick for watching the FIBA championships from anywhere in the world is to choose a VPN server that is located in a place that streams the games, like the United States.
Now, there are a lot of different options for VPN providers, but my personal favorite is VyprVPN. It is a very fast and reliable service and I’ve seen it work even in situations when other VPNs didn’t work.
