Match Game has been around for a long time, but it was only revived by ABC in 2016, with Alec Baldwin as both host and executive producer. Over the past six decades, since Match Game first aired on NBC, the show has made the rounds at all major networks, running on CBS for a few years, before landing on ABC for the latest revival.

The show features contestants trying to answer fill in the blank questions that have to match the answers given by celebrities invited on the show.

How Can I Watch Match Game When Traveling Outside of the United States?

Whenever you travel outside of the United States, you lose the ability to access the platforms you are accustomed to at home because live TV platforms and streaming services are geo-blocked. It means that, as soon as your IP changes to reflect your new location, you are no longer welcomed to visit the services you subscribe to. To bypass this problem, you need to change your IP address with a VPN so that you appear to be in the United States rather than anywhere else in the world. We use ExpressVPN because it's such a great tool, featuring thousands of servers over the world and some great privacy features.

Here's how you can use ExpressVPN to watch Match Game:

The TV provider in question can be one of the live TV services we've been discussing or a cable company if you haven't cut the cord yet.

If you want to watch Match Game with a TV antenna, that is also possible because ABC continues to broadcast over-the-air. To access the broadcast, you need one of these devices. They are pretty cheap, and they allow you to watch local channels for free.

Before you buy anything, however, you should look into a site like NoCable, where you can find out whether ABC broadcasts in your area or not, as well as what other channels are available in your vicinity. The site will also tell you how far the broadcast stations are, so you know what range your device needs to cover. Make sure you also check the devices we listed above in case any of them have the right features for you.
