How to Stream Maharashtra vs. Karnataka T20 Finals Live with a VPN
Hotstar is only available for viewers who reside within Indian borders. As for expats and fans living abroad, you’ll be instantly blocking upon any streaming attempt.
The solution is pretty easy. I’ve been through this before when I got blocked from dozens of Indian cricket matches. All you need is to trick the channel into thinking that you’re within its area of coverage. Luckily, this can be easily done if you invest in a reputable VPN provider.
Once you operate with a VPN, you can spoof your online location by simply connecting to an Indian server provided within its server list. When you pick your server and hit connect, you’ll receive an Indian IP address and be able to stream Hotstar and more Indian-restricted content despite being abroad.
This is how I figured it all out:
- When I visited their page, I got this geo-error message: “Videos on www.hotstar.com are not available in your region.”.
- Then I found out about VPNs and invested in one. To be more precise, ExpressVPN.
- I downloaded and installed their client on my device. Apparently, they work with iOS, Android, PC, Mac, and Fire Stick.
- Went over to there server list. I found a lot since they have more than 128 locations. However, an Indian server was all I needed.
- I chose an Indian server and hit the connect button.
- Waited a few seconds for the connection to establish.
- Once done, headed back to Hotstar’s website and I got it just like that.
- Watched all the cricket matches in India and I’m more than ready to watch the Syed Mushtaq Trophy final.
ExpressVPN is one of the top VPN providers you can find on the market. If that’s not the case with you, check out other top VPNs for Hotstar in the table below.
