The North Carolina Tar Heels made the Final Four after a 20-point win over tiny Saint Peter's in the East Regional final, ending the underdog's Cinderella run and any hope of a March Madness miracle.
UNC might be the lowest seed to make this year's Final Four but they have made it to the Final Four 21 times – more than any other school in college basketball history – and are +4 favourites to progress to the 2022 championship game
Fellow blue bloods Duke (-4) powered their way to the semis with a 78-69 win over Arkansas in the Elite Eight on Saturday at the Chase Center. Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski, now in his 47th and final season, will be targeting a fairytale finale when he attempts to turn the Blue Devils into 2022 NCAA national champions but it won't be easy.
The stage is set for the ultimate college basketball rivalry, but who will make it to the final of the big dance on Monday 4th April? US fans can watch a Duke vs UNC live stream with a Sling TV $10 discount (opens in new tab). We'll show you how below...

Watch Duke vs UNC from abroad using a VPN
Even if you have subscribed to the relevant Duke vs UNC rights holders, you won't be able to use them 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 (opens in new tab) which offers a 100 per cent risk-free money back guarantee. If you're not happy with the service any time within the first 30-days, then you can cancel with no penalties at all.

ExpressVPN hits it for six with a 30-day money back guarantee with its VPN service. You can use it to watch on your mobile, tablet, laptop, TV, games console and more. There's 24/7 customer support and three months free when you sign-up. Try it – it's easier than you think.
How to use a VPN
Using a VPN is incredibly simple.
1. Install the VPN of your choice. ExpressVPN (opens in new tab) is the one we recommend.
2. Open up the VPN app and choose the location of the service you wish to access. For Duke vs UNC you may wish to choose 'USA' for Sling TV.
3. Then head over to Sling TV (opens in new tab) on your browser or device and enjoy the Duke vs UNC live stream.
If, for whatever reason, you can't get it working, do remember that you have the comfort of a 30-day money back guarantee with ExpressVPN (opens in new tab).
