As the new season of the premier league is just around the corner, today I’ll show you how to watch EPL live in New Zealand. For those in the know, EPL stands for English Premier League and in New Zealand you’ve really only got one legal option.
The rights holder for the EPL in New Zealand is Spark Sports, who’ve got the licensing for the next 3 years.
Spark claim 2019 will be the best year yet, with a new app and more and more devices now being supported.
With the rugby world cup just around the corner too, and Spark Sports having rights to that tournament as well, they sure better have a good service up their sleeves.
In the last round of the 2018/2019 season, previous holder Bein Sports screwed up and no one could watch any games. Let’s hope Spark has got their act together and won’t be the next provider who fails to deliver on all those promises.
It’s clear these NZ apps are overloaded and under resourced.
How To Watch EPL Live In New Zealand
You can watch the premier league using the following channels:
- New Zealand: Spark Sports ($19.99/mo)
- Australia: Kayo Sports ($25/mo)
- Canada: DAZN Sports ($20/mo or $150/yr)
- United Kingdom: Sky Sports / BT Sport.
- You can also watch highlights on Match of The Day
The best and easiest platform to use for the 2019/2020 season is DAZN. Anyone can create an account, no sms confirmation required.
Step 1: Get A VPN Provider
To watch premier league live in New Zealand for free you’ll need to use the best VPN provider to pretend you’re in Canada.
There are many different VPN providers out there on the web, from our experience the cheapest and most affordable option is PureVPN.
You’ll be able to buy a VPN using your New Zealand credit card/Paypal.
Step 2: Download & Install VPN Application
You’ll need to decide how you plan on accessing DAZN. You could use your smart TV, Apple TV or just a computer web browser.
You’ll need to download the PureVPN Application to your device first. Login with the details you were provided via email during signup.
Step 3: Choose Canadian Server
You’ll now need to connect through to a Canadian based server. If you’re given an option of which city then I’d choose Vancouver.
You’ll be advised by the VPN app once your IP has changed and you’re routing your connection via Canada.
You’ll now be able to go to the DAZN website website/app and create an account and pay for the subscription.
Step 4: Start Watching EPL Games
Search for the games on the website search box, although it’s likely going to be on the homepage. All games are live and on demand.
You’ll now be able to play any of the on demand content available as well as any highlight shows.
Keep your account and watch again every weekend.
There you have it, four of the simplest steps ever to start watching the EPL live in New Zealand. You don’t need a satellite connection, an expensive cable plan or even a fully fledged VPN, with PureVPN you can get started for under a few dollars per month.
Your VPN can then unlock pretty much any channel in the world too.
