How to use a VPN to unblock any restrictions

  • When it comes to finding a VPN, you should make sure you find the best one that's suitable for your chosen device, with VPN providers offering compatibility for a ton of devices, including VPN for MacVPN for Android smartphones, an iPad VPN, and even a range of fairly nifty free VPNs.
  • Once you've made the decision for the most suitable VPN for your device and your means for using a VPN, sign-up and install it
  • To live stream the Canelo vs Saunders, all you need to do is select a UK server from its list of available servers and connect. You'll then be able to hop over those geo-restrictions with DAZN opening its online gates to you.
