Many users who sign up for ExpressVPN come back with great reviews on the service. One of the best praised features of ExpressVPN is the server speed and connection stability. Some users just signed up to watch the Olympic Winter games and the BAFTA awards. And they report that ExpressVPN is a great VPN for live streaming. Since the 2014 Oscars are on tonight, we thought we’d share their experiences.
Watching Live Events via ExpressVPN
Many users never thought to use a VPN to watch televised events like the Oscars. They know that most of the popular events that they want to see will be shown on their local channels. But they heard about how different watching the events live from their countries of origin can be. And when they signed up for a VPN trial to see for themselves, they were convinced. Using a VPN to access telecasted events as they were meant to be shown was a much better experience. Overall, they were able to get the coverage faster, with less advertisements, and with far better video quality. The most recent events that new users watched via ExpressVPN were the winter Olympics and the BAFTA awards.
When users watch via VPN, they can see the shows just as they are telecast. Most events are available in other countries, but they are shown late. They have to go through processes for licensing to be shown in other countries. Many times, the quality of the telecast will be lower than the original as well because the local broadcasting company does not have the same resources. It could also be because they have to make up for the costs involved in airing coverage of a foreign event. This often also means that the shows are overproduced and have too many advertisements inserted in between sections of the events. Ads cut up the show sometimes so much that viewers can no longer follow what is happening. The mood is severely affected, and it makes the shows drag on for far too long. The hosts are also sometimes different. This can further change the feel of the show.
When you connect to the country where the event is streaming live using a VPN, you get access the original telecast. This means the mood is maintained with the original video quality and mood. All the new ExpressVPN users who signed up to try watching the BAFTA awards and the Olympic Winter Games were thoroughly impressed by the huge difference it made. They were able to enjoy the events without all the interruptions and strange feeling created by having local hosts on a foreign show. With the ExpressVPN 30 day money-back guarantee, you can test it out as well. See how much better it can be to watch the Oscars as they were intended to be viewed. Unlike other VPN providers, ExpressVPN opens to you the full potential of the service when you sign up. You can’t lose with this offer since you can get complete access to their powerful servers and still get your money back if you are not satisfied.
