How Can I Watch the Big 12 Men's Basketball Tournament When Traveling Outside of the United States?

If you happen to be traveling outside of the United States in the next few days, when the tournament takes place, you need to be aware that live TV services and cable platforms are all geo-blocked. Basically, this means that you cannot access them unless you appear to be in the United States, which you can do by changing your IP address. First of all, these things happen because they have to respect the licensing deals they agreed to in the contract, which means that they have to block anyone that's not inside the United States. We understand this can be extremely frustrating, but it's nothing that companies themselves can do about it unless they want to lose their deals.

As we already mentioned, however, the situation can be bypassed by changing your IP address so you appear to be in the United States rather than wherever you have traveled to. If you don't know which VPN to use, we can recommend ExpressVPN, which is really cool platform that has thousands of servers all over the world and some really great privacy features.

Here's how you can sign up for ExpressVPN:

Can I Watch the Big 12 Men's Basketball Tournament on the Network’s Website?

Well, this is certainly an option as well because ESPN has live streams for all of its networks. In order to access these live streams, you will need to log in to an account by using credentials from your TV provider. The TV provider can be a live TV service or a cable company in case you have not yet cut the cord. (Note: The ESPN live streams are geo-blocked, so if you're going to travel abroad you should keep in mind that you will need a VPN.
