Are you outside Austria? Have you just tried to watch ORF online, but instead of watching what you wanted to, you instead got an error message telling you that whatever you want to see, cannot be broadcasted to you because of copyright reasons (restrictions)? In this guide, I will show you how to watch ORF abroad. It doesn’t matter if you are in Sweden, France, Canada, Australia, or the United States – You are about to find the help that you have been looking for.
To watch ORF outside Austria you will need to use a program/service provided by ExpressVPN. It might sound strange, but ExpressVPN is a VPN provider which will let you connect your computer to a server in Austria (and in more than 90 other nations). As you connect to a server in Austria you will get an Austrian IP address. As a consequence, you will bypass all restrictions from TV channels that require you to have an Austrian IP address to watch their live streams and other content, meaning that you will again be able to watch ORF abroad.
ORF has one of the best live services!
ORF is a great channel, and on their website, you can enjoy live streams of ORFeins, ORF2, ORF3 and ORF Sport+. All this is available as you use ExpressVPN to get an Austrian IP address. In other words, you can enjoy watching ORF online a few minutes from now as you follow these instructions.
As always I am writing based on personal experience, and at the time I am writing this article it is time for the semifinal in the European Championship in Handball, and Denmark is playing against Croatia. At first, when I tried to watch ORF Sport + I got to see the following error message (see above). I then used my VPN connection provided by ExpressVPN to connect to their server in Austria, giving me an Austrian IP address. After the connection was made (it takes a few seconds), I restarted my browser and opened the live stream again. What happened then? I got to see the match instead of the error message! Just take a look at the following picture taken by me as I watched the match on ORF online outside Austria.
If you want to try this yourself click the button above to visit the ExpressVPN website. Do not worry, they have a 30-day full refund policy, meaning that you can ask for your money in return if you do not like the service or if it doesn’t work for you.
If you want to do some background work, then read my ExpressVPN review before you continue.
It might be nice to know that ExpressVPN can be used on five devices at the same time. As a result, you can use the same subscription on your telephone, TV, tablet, computer, and one more device simultaneously. Or you can split the cost with a friend and use the same subscription together.
Go for it and enjoy watching ORF online all across the globe.
