Brighton vs. Man City Livestream: How to Watch English Premier League Soccer From Anywhere

Defending champions Manchester City need a win to keep the heat on their title-chasing rivals on Thursday as they travel to the south coast to take on Brighton.

Pep Guardiola’s side booked their place in the FA Cup final on Saturday with a win over Chelsea at Wembley. Their attention returns to the English Premier League today as they look to take advantage of their games in hand over title rivals Arsenal and Liverpool.

They now come up against a Brighton side that are in danger of letting what had been a promising season peter out. The Seagulls’ push for European qualification has been severely dented by a poor run of just one win from their last six fixtures.

Below, we’ll outline the best live TV streaming services to use to watch the game live wherever you are in the world.

How to watch the Brighton vs. Man City game online from anywhere using a VPN

If you find yourself unable to view the game locally, you may need a different way to watch the game — that’s where using a VPN can come in handy. A VPN is also the best way to stop your ISP from throttling your speeds on game day by encrypting your traffic, and it’s also a great idea if you’re traveling and find yourself connected to a Wi-Fi network, and you want to add an extra layer of privacy for your devices and logins.

With a VPN, you’re able to virtually change your location on your phone, tablet or laptop to get access to the game. So if your internet provider or mobile carrier has stuck you with an IP address that incorrectly shows your location in a blackout zone, a VPN can correct that problem by giving you an IP address in your correct, non-blackout area. Most VPNs, like our Editors’ Choice, ExpressVPN, make it really easy to do this.

Using a VPN to watch or stream sports is legal in any country where VPNs are legal, including the US, UK and Canada, as long as you have a legitimate subscription to the service you’re streaming. You should be sure your VPN is set up correctly to prevent leaks: Even where VPNs are legal, the streaming service may terminate the account of anyone it deems to be circumventing correctly applied blackout restrictions.
