Watch the Amazon Prime football live streams from abroad with a VPN

Even if you have subscribed to Amazon Prime UK, you won't be able to access the free Amazon Premier League football streams when outside the UK. Amazon will know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block your access when travelling away from home.

A Virtual Private Network (VPN) helps you get around this obstacle. A VPN creates a private connection between your device, enabling you to access geo-blocked websites and save money. What's not to love?
