The best-of-seven 2021 MLB World Series got off to a thrilling start after Atlanta struck out Jose Atluve with a 100mph rocket. Atlanta fell 7-2 to Houston in Game 2, but the Braves pulled ahead in Game 3 thanks to a superb performance from rookie Ian Anderson. 

Atlanta took Game 4 with back-to-back 7th inning home runs from Dansby Swanson and Jorge Soler, leaving them 3-1 up and one win away from their first World Series since 1995. Houston took Game 5 to force a Game 6 on home territory. Can they go on to capture the crown?

These two teams have never met in Major League's World Series, but they both have plenty of history. Houston won its first World Series in 2017, beating the Los Angeles Dodgers. Things turned sour in 2019, however, when the Astros were accused of cheating by banging a garbage can to signal an off-speed pitch. The 'Trashtros', as they are now known, need a 2021 World Series win to secure their redemption.  

The Atlanta Braves, appearing in their first World Series since 1999, overpowered the Milwaukee Brewers in the NL Division Series before shutting down reigning champions the LA Dodgers for the second year in a row in the NL Championship Series. Can star batsman Eddie Rosario, currently batting .474, lead Atlanta to the title?

Astros vs Braves live stream from anywhere with a VPN

Even if you have subscribed to the relevant Astros vs Braves rights holders, you won't be able to access these streaming services when outside your own country. The service will know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block your access.

A Virtual Private Network (VPN) helps you get around this obstacle. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, such that the servers and services you’re accessing aren’t aware of what you’re doing. All the information passing back and forth is entirely encrypted.

There are many VPN providers out there, with some more reliable and safe than others. As a rule, we’d suggest a paid-for service such as ExpressVPN.

Try ExpressVPN risk-free for 30 days

1. Install the VPN of your choice. ExpressVPN is the one we recommend.

2. Open up the VPN app and choose the location of the service you wish to access. For the Astros vs Braves, you may wish to choose 'USA' to access Sling or FuboTV.

3. Then head over to Sling or FuboTV on your browser or device and enjoy an Astros vs Braves stream.

If, for whatever reason, you can't get it working, then do remember that you have the comfort of a 30-day money back guarantee with ExpressVPN. You could also try NordVPN, which also comes with a 30-day money back guarantee, and Surfshark which offers 24 hour assistance.
