I am living outside Switzerland, but would love to watch the World Cup on Swiss television, on SRF, especially the matches where Switzerland will play. How can that be done?
That is a brilliant question, and a question that many other people have, and that they will be very interested in finding an answer to, especially during the World Cup 2014 in Brazil. The same question was valid earlier this year during the Winter Olympics, and the solution is the same during the World Cup as it was during the Winter Olympics… a VPN.
A VPN is a Virtuak Private Network, a tool that will connect your computer to a network somewhere else. This connection encrypts your online activity, and let us say you connect to a VPN server in Switzerland, then it will also give you a Swiss IP address, which is exactly what you need to watch SRF from outside Switzerland. The best VPN provider with servers in Switzerland is HideMyAss, so to watch SRF from abroad click the box, and then follow the steps.
