It’s easier than ever to watch the Rugby World Cup without subscribing to DSTv!

You need two things…

You set up your VPN, choose England as the location, create an ITV account and start watching.

How does it work?

You need a VPN. VPN stands for Virtual Private Network. Without going into the technicalities of how a VPN works, let me explain a little.

When you try to use certain online streaming services, like, you’re greeted with, “fuboTV content is currently not available in your location.”

But when you use a VPN, it’s like you’re using the site from a valid location.

So it’s as if you’re using fuboTV from the USA.

That’s what a VPN allows you to do. It hides your IP and your location so you look like an American user (or in this case, an English user) to the service provider.

It also works for other sites, like Netflix US.

So how do you set it up?


Sign up for a VPN service. Then connect to the internet through the VPN. Once you’re connected via the VPN, sign up for a free account at ITV.

Is it legal?

It’s not illegal. There’s nothing in South African law that prohibits you from accessing content through a VPN.

There you have it: how to gain access to the RWC without relying on DSTV.

Enjoy, Kouga!
