YLE, the Finnish TV channel, will broadcast from the World Cup 2014 in Brazil. This is the highlight of the year for sports enthusiasts, and many will want to watch the matches on their computers, laptops, tablets, smart phones and so. But, how to watch the World Cup 2014 on YLE.fi from outside Finland?
Like most other TV channels with rights to broadcast from the FIFA World Cup in 2014, YLE has to use a geographical block on their broadcasts, to ensure that only people located in Finland can watch the broadcasts on YLE live. That is a problem also in general, so if you try to watch YLE live streams or other programs from abroad, you will get an error message telling your that it is not available.

The solution to your problem (and mine), is to use a VPN provider which will provide me with an IP address in Finland. There are two different providers to choose from, which both are good and stable, and has good speeds, and those are IPVanish and VyprVPN. In general I prefer to use IPVanish, but I recommend that you visit both websites, and make a subscription to the one that seems best and easiest to you. After signing up, this is what to do.
- Download the VPN client of IPVanish/VyprVPN.
- Install the problem, add your username/password.
- Connect to a Finland server.
- Restart your browser.
- Visit yle.fi and enjoy watching the FIFA World Cup 2014 online.
