Why use a VPN to watch the final of the World Cup?

With the final of the World Cup being hosted in Russia this year, fans around the world are in a dizzy to make sure they're not missing a single moment. For most of us back home, our best shot is to watch the games on TV, or stream them online. But for those of us on the move, we can't always be sure to get the best HD streams in the language of our choice, and can't always connect to international TV stations from where we are.

Here's where a VPN comes in. Connecting to your VPN allows your device to "appear" to be in a country of your choice, giving you complete access to the streaming options and media services of that country.
