How to Watch the Rugby World Cup Online – Essential Software

VPN for streaming world cup 2015

  • Use a VPN – Streaming is a legal grey area in some countries. Many of the links above are restricted based on geography (meaning you can only watch ITV within the UK, for example). I recommend Cyberghost VPN to protect your privacy and get around geo-restrictions. It’s a premium service that is well worth paying for.

adblocker

  • Adblocker – I recommend uBlock Origin. Many streaming sites are plastered with annoying ads. Block them with this software. Free.
  • Livestreamer software. Instead of watching in your browser, you can instead stream to VLC or other media players of your choice. This is for more advanced users, involves using a command line. Free and open source.
  • Acestream. Best quality, HD streams with minimal lag. Here is my guide to setting up Acestream for rugby gamesFree.
Use Acestream Securely

Acestream involves using peer-to-peer (P2P) services. Sometimes these are in a legal grey area depending on your geographic location.

I recommend using Cyberghost VPN to use Acestream securely (disclosure: affiliate link. If you liked this guide and found it useful, consider using this link to sign up!)

You can read about their privacy policies here and a further review here. You can use them on your mobile devices and use their worldwide servers to unblock geo-locked broadcasts from different countries.
