All eyes on Murrayfield today where one of sport's oldest rivalries is resurrected as Scotland 'welcome' England for the second gameweek of the 2020 Six Nations. And you're in the right place to discover how to get a Scotland vs England live stream from anywhere on Earth by following this guide.

Although both of these teams come into the game having lost their first Six Nations encounters of this year's tournament, it's England that must feel the more heavily bruised (and we're not just talking about Lewis Ludlam's black eye). They were, not to put too finer point on it, thumped by the marauding French in Paris. Eddie Jones has responded by ringing five changes to the starting XV – suddenly England's remarkable run to last year's Rugby World Cup final seems a very long time ago.

Scotland, on the other hand, put up a spirited display in Ireland, leaving the field with a narrow 19-12 loss and a whole bunch of 'what ifs' – mostly from captain Stuart Hogg after his embarrassing try-line blunder. They make only one change, with Magnus Bradbury coming into bolster the back-row. But the most positive thing on Scotland's minds will be the incredible comeback 38-38 draw in last season's Calcutta Cup game, and the knowledge that England haven't won at Murrayfield since 2016.

4.45pm GMT is the time you need to be in front of your TV, laptop or mobile device and ready to watch England take on Scotland. So read on to discover how to get a Scotland vs England live stream for FREE – it doesn't even matter where in the world you happen to be.

BBC One is your destination of choice if you're in the UK and wanting to settle down for a Saturday evening of international rugby. The coverage for this game starts at 4pm GMT this afternoon, with kick-off due at 4.45pm.

How to watch the Six Nations from anywhere else in the world

Unfortunately, if you're outside the UK this weekend and try to watch that BBC coverage, then you'll be initially out of luck as it will be geo-blocked. That means you can't watch it outside of the home country due to rights reasons. But there's a handy little trick you can use to get around that, using a Virtual Private Network.

More commonly known as a VPN (you've probably already heard of them), the software allows you to virtually change your IP address to a server in another country so you appear to be in a completely different location. It's encrypted, making it also a safer way to navigate the web. We've tested hundreds of VPNs and can recommend T3 Award winning ExpressVPN as the best option currently available.

ExpressVPN has the benefit of a 30-day money back guarantee and is the #1 rated best VPN in the world right now. You can watch on loads of devices at once including Smart TVs, Fire TV Stick, PC, Mac, iPhone, Android phone, iPads, tablets etc and you'll also get 3 months FREE if you sign up to an annual plan.

Check out Express VPN

Once it's been downloaded and installed, open the app and select a UK server location (it's super easy) and then head over to TVPlayer.com from 4.45pm GMT / 11.45am ET / 8.45am PT / 3.45am AEDT in time to live stream the match.
