Forest's first competitive meeting with Liverpool since 1999 is shaping up to be a cracker, with both teams in scintillating form. Earlier this week, the Tricky Trees came from behind to beat Huddersfield 2-1 in the fifth round and progress to the last eight of the FA Cup for the first time in 26 years.

Liverpool have been on something of a run, too. The Reds beat Arsenal 2-0 in the Premier League on Wednesday to record their ninth consecutive win and close the gap to League leaders Manchester City to just one point.

Sunday's showdown will be the first FA Cup meeting between the Liverpool and Notts Forest since the 1988-89 semi-final, which LFC won 3-1 en route to winning the trophy.

Kick-off is on Sunday 20th March at 6pm (GMT) and 1pm (ET). Read on to find out how to watch a Nottingham Forest vs Liverpool free live stream, wherever you are in the world.

ITV has the rights to air Nottingham Forest vs Liverpool in the UK, and it's worth remembering that you can enjoy the coverage for free from abroad too as a UK national using a VPN (opens in new tab) (full details below).

Nottingham Forest vs Liverpool will be available on UK TVs via ITV, STV (Scotland), UTV (Northern Ireland) or through the ITV Hub (opens in new tab) which you can view on a smart TV, tablet, smartphone or through your browser.

Watch a Nottingham Forest vs Liverpool live stream abroad using a VPN

Even if you have access to ITV, you won't be able to watch ITV Hub (opens in new tab) when outside the UK without a VPN. 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.

Try ExpressVPN risk-free for 30 days (opens in new tab)
ExpressVPN offers 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 – you'll be surprised how simple it is.

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 the FA Cup, you may wish to choose 'UK' to access ITV Hub.

3. Then head over to ITV Hub (opens in new tab) on your browser or device and enjoy a Nottingham Forest vs Liverpool live 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 (opens in new tab). You could also try NordVPN (opens in new tab), which also comes with a 30-day money back guarantee, and Surfshark (opens in new tab) which offers 24 hour assistance.
