Use a VPN to watch a Champions League live stream from outside your country

We know, we know, this has crept up on you a bit. So what if you have a Bonfire Night break and you're out of the country for the first Champions League week of the season?

We can help. If you're out of the country for those Champions League fixtures, then you're on your way to work – do not work – the broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address, and you'll be blocked by watching.

But assistance is on hand. To get around that, all you have to do is Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster's T & Cs. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can not work out. All the info is completely encrypted – and that's a result.

There are plenty of good-value options out there, including:

1. ExpressVPN (30-day, money-back guarantee)

The recommended VPN of choice. FourFourTwo'S brainy pals TechRadar love ExpressVPN's lightning-quick connections, security you can trust, and the fact it works with Android, Apple, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, PS4 plus plenty more. It therefore comes with that money-back guarantee, has 24/7 support, is currently available for a 49% discount and with three months FREE. Grand.

2. North VPN (inc 30-day, money-back guarantee)

A cheaper option; its cheapest package current averages at a titchy £ 2.29 per month.

3. IPVanish (inc., Seven-day money-back guarantee)

Slightly more expensive but supports up to 10 devices, and you can pay up your hard-earned every three months if required.
