Why do I need PureVPN to watch the Rugby World Cup?
If you have followed the steps above you should be able to watch the Rugby World Cup online already. But, maybe you want to understand more what this is about, and why you need PureVPN and a subscription to watch the Rugby World Cup? Here it comes!
ITV is a TV channel that is located in the United Kingdom. They have rights to broadcast to people located in the UK, meaning that as they buy broadcasting rights to TV programs and events, they buy the rights to broadcast them in the UK. As they also broadcast on the Internet they need to limit who can watch such streams and programs, and that is why they use a so called geographical block, a geo-block. This is used as they check your IP address, and based on this they can find your location. If you are located outside England you will get an error message, but if you are located inside England, you will be allowed to watch the program or the live stream from the Rugby World Cup. So, what can be done for you to trick the ITV website and to be able to make them believe you are located in the UK? This is where PureVPN comes in!
PureVPN is a VPN provider with servers in more than hundred nations worldwide. As a subscriber you will gain access to all these servers and with their application which is available for Windows, Android, iOS and Mac. Using the application you can for example connect to a server in the USA, and then you will be able to watch CBS, NBC, FOX and so on online. As you connect to a server in the UK you will get a UK IP address, and thus you will be able to watch ITV and other channels online, because these websites will all believe that you are actually located in the UK.
That was the a little bit technical answer to the question as to why you need PureVPN to watch the rugby world cup online on ITV.
