How to Watch Africa Cup of Nations 2019 Online?
Watching content over the Internet is quite easy to do, and even if we are talking about television. The thing with streaming platforms and live TV services is that they are all bound by licensing deals so you can’t watch anything if you’re traveling abroad because you will get blocked from accessing the platforms. In order to bypass the whole situation, you simply have to change your IP address, so the platforms believe you’re still live in the United States, so we suggest you subscribe to a VPN service. Let’s see how you can do this.
- The first thing you need to handle is which VPN you’re going to use. Quite a few years now and we can recommend you go with ExpressVPN, which is one of the best on the market. Visit ExpressVPN’s website and subscribe to the service in a few easy steps.
- Now it’s time to download the app and install it on your device. Follow up by launching the tool and logging into your account.
- Now that you’re all set, you can go ahead and look for a server that is located within the United States so you can connect to it.
- When the connection is established, your VPN will inform you and you can go ahead and load the live TV platform that you chose to watch the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, such as Sling TV. Tune in at the right time and enjoy the final games.

Would you suggest that you go to a live TV service however because it will help you get easier access to dozens of channels at the same time?

For many years now we have all become accustomed to watching loads of content over the Internet, so it makes sense that we also want to watch TV in the same manner. Live TV platforms are cheaper than cable plans are nowadays, and there are no contracts involved, so you get to unsubscribe to the service whenever you no longer feel that suits your needs. There is also the fact that you can watch your shows wherever you may be when they start airing even if that’s on the bus or at work as you simply need a smartphone and an internet connection.
