How to stream the game from anywhere
If you aren’t sure if you can access BT Sport where you are, then the best way to get around your issues might be a VPN. That’s because access to normal coverage might be geo-blocked – that is, you are prevented from watching outside your home country, usually due to rights reasons.
VPNs encrypt and anonymise your data and enable you to appear as if you are watching from your home country, so they are useful for much more than entertainment.

Derby vs Man United match preview
Following a closely contested tie between Tottenham and Norwich City last night, which was ultimately decided via a penalty shootout, the winner of tonight’s fixture will face Norwich in the next round.
United are huge favourites this evening but Derby have been re-energised since Rooney’s arrival in January. The former England captain has found the net several times as well as taking a leadership role and helping those around him bag their own goals.
Derby had a convincing win on Saturday too, bagging a 3-1 win away at Sheffield Wednesday. It’s the Rams’ only win in the last five fixtures though.
Conversely, United struggled in a 1-1 draw with Everton and needed an opinion-splitting VAR decision to get them out of hot-water in the closing moments. Overall though, United have found their shooting boots again of late, bagging nine goals in their last three games.
Derby will have to be organised in defence and take their chances when they can, but an upset is far from impossible. It’s well worth tuning in on BT Sport to see if they can pull it off.
