From the 4th until the 15th of April, 2018, the Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia, will host the XXI Commonwealth Games. It will be the 5th time Australia hosts the prestigious sporting event. Athletes from 70 nations will be participating in the games. In the guide below, you can find instructions on how to watch the Commonwealth Games 2018 on PC, Mac, Android, iOS, FireStick, Apple TV, Roku, Smart TV, PS4, or Xbox One.
How to Watch Commonwealth Games 2018 – Stream Gold Coast Live
As a British expat, I prefer watching the Gold Coast Games live online on BBC iPlayer for two reasons. First of all, BBC iPlayer provides excellent English coverage of the event. Additionally, BBC iPlayer apps are available on any streaming device you can think of. Hence, you can watch Commonwealth Games on PS4, Xbox, Apple TV, Roku, Android, iOS, and Smart TVs. The only issue is that BBC iPlayer, like the rest of the free streaming channels listed above, is geo-restricted outside the UK. Thanks to VPN, I can bypass these regional restrictions and watch the Commonwealth Games 2018 live online anywhere in the world.
If you have not yet subscribed to a VPN service, sign up with a VPN provider that has VPN servers in the country of the channel you wish to unblock.
In the case of BBC iPlayer, connect to a UK VPN server. This allows you to obtain a UK IP address. Thus, unblock BBC iPlayer outside the UK.
Besides bypassing geographic restrictions, VPN also encrypts your Internet traffic. Your online privacy is well-protected as long as you are using the VPN connection.
VPN applications can be installed on PC, Mac, iPhone, iPad, and Android.
Use ExpressVPN to watch GC2018 live online. They have VPN servers all over the world including the United Kingdom, USA, and Australia. ExpressVPN offer a 30-day money-back refund period as well. Obviously, you can use other VPN providers to stream the Commonwealth Games online, too.
