How to Stream College Basketball Online & Unblock NCAA Basketball Outside the USA

How To Stream NCAA College Basketball Online

The 2014 NCAA Basketball season is currently underway. Will Kentucky roll through the rest of the country this season or will the always powerful but recently non-title winning Dukies gonna bring it home this year? How about Wisconsin, Ohio State, Kansas, Maryland or Rutgers? (Ok Rutgers isn’t going to do anything but an alumnus can dream!) So many questions, so much pressure, and so much excitement?

Looking for the best places to stream college basketball and how to use a FlashRouter to watch these games from anywhere? This post has you covered.

So if you are aching to watch your alma mater or hometown heroes rise up the bracket of the Big 12 or the Big East conference, but stuck outside of your home market or country, we may just have some solutions for you for the best college sports streaming services. Plus you may just learn how to unblock your favorite online sports streaming hubs from outside the US at any time. Plus out solution offers more clear streaming video, better WiFi range, plus amazing security/privacy features.

Not only will it benefit you for streaming the best college sports games online from now through March Madness but access Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Instant and anything else from anywhere!

Enough preamble, let’s get down to the games…

Best Sites for Streaming Live College Basketball

WatchESPN – As we usually do, we will start this list with WatchESPN, as it generally tends to be the best option for streaming live sports. If you are looking to stream college basketball, they do not disappoint, especially if you are interested in watching SEC, Big 12, and ACC teams. From Oklahoma to Kansas, UNC to Wichita State, WatchESPN has the largest array of college sports streaming online anywhere.

For an example, check out this list of games that are available within the next couple of days. Sure, you’ll need a cable subscription, so this is by no means a substitute for that, but if you want a good online supplement to your cable package while on the road or to share with family , getting this app is the way to go.

Fox Sports Go – Again, this is one where you’ll need a cable subscription. There’s also the issue that, if you don’t have a VPN (which we’ll explain the necessity of later in this post), you’ll only be able to watch local college basketball games. Still, there are plenty of games to watch, with Fox concentrating mostly on the Pac-12 conference.

Use WatchESPN to stream college basketball

WatchESPN – How to Stream College Basketball

Wiziwig - Less officially, we once again remind you of Wiziwig. We’re always a little hesitant to recommend something like this since sites like this are operating outside conventional bounds and could potentially include malware in the software that you need to download in order to use it.

Then again, free options for those looking to stream college basketball are hard to come by these days. Enter at your own risk. Back to the conventional choices with…

CBS ollege Sports Live –  We saved the best for last with this one. This is sort of in the spirit of NFL Game Pass in that you’re basically paying for a whole season to stream without the added hassle of needing a cable subscription. In that way, College Sports Live is far and away the best option for cord-cutters looking to stream college basketball.

Stream College Basketball Online with a VPN-Ready FlashRouter

FlashRouters

Of course, relying on streaming does have its drawbacks. For example, what if your router isn’t strong enough to handle a consistent live stream? Are you really going to be okay with non-stop stutters in your service and buffering? What if you’re out of the country on business or vacation and your streaming college basketball site of choice has some geographical restrictions?

This is where FlashRouters and our VPN service provider affiliates come in to save the day. Not only does FlashRouters offer the finest routers on the market to ensure that our customers get powerful, consistent performance from their wireless network, we’re aligned with some of the best VPN service providers out there to guarantee that your online safety, privacy, and freedom are protected at all times.

VPN services, as the link above explains in further detail, protect your WiFi network by tunneling all of your online information through encrypted servers and allow you to access any website from anywhere in the world, allowing you to stream college basketball from Korea, Brazil, Germany, or anywhere else you might happen to be.

FlashRouters provide you with the certainty that your network will never underperform by offering top-of-the-line routers flashed superlative replacement firmware like DD-WRT and Tomato. Featuring premium stability, superior performance and exceptional security options, using the Internet without a FlashRouter is like going out into the snow without a coat. Unprotected and asking for it!

FlashRouters and VPNs go hand in hand. If you’re subscribed to any VPN on our official supported provider list, we’ll send you your FlashRouter ready to work with your VPN service, allowing you to enjoy your new router without putting yourself through aggravating VPN-installation processes.

Better yet, hold on to your old router and enjoy our dual-router setup, which allows you to have one dedicated VPN router and one local router for more simple, day-to-day usage.

Best Router for Streaming Sports Video

Want to know which FlashRouters and VPNs are right for you? We recommend you start by looking at our most recent bestsellers list, which features the most popular routers and VPN service providers available on the FlashRouters website.

There’s everything you might need: terrific VPN service providers like PrivateInternetAccess, IPVanish, and CyberGhost, as well as dynamite routers from all price ranges like the excellent economy Linksys E1200 Tomato or the all-mighty Netgear R7000 DD-WRT.

 

We even have a brand new Wireless-AC model that costs half the price of most other Wireless-AC devices (the Netgear AC1450 DD-WRT Router).

Streaming college basketball has never been so easy, and with the right FlashRouter and VPN on your side, you’ll never have to worry about it again. And with the holiday season approaching very soon, a FlashRouter is the perfect last minute gift for any students abroad or military service people looking to stream college basketball.

How to Access & Unblock Netflix Denmark From Anywhere

Use VPNS to watch Netflix Denmark from anywhere.

Watch Netflix Denmark from Anywhere

Luckily for those in the Nordic countries, Netflix’s recent European expansion managed to include Norway, Sweden, Finland, and Denmark.

And, as those of us who’ve traveled outside of the country on business or vacation have found out, what Netflix Instant offers varies wildly from country to country. Seems like every single country but America has Superbad available to them at any time on Netflix Instant. Doesn’t seem fair, frankly.

Denmark was in fact the champion of our battle of the best country for Netflix Instant Superhero movies. In fact, Denmark is the only country that offers all the Superman movies from Christopher Reeves until now.

Anyway, there are ways to right this great wrong. Why should you be limited to one catalog of movies with your Netflix subscription!

You can watch Netflix Denmark from anywhere in the world if you take the right steps, and it’s easier than you may think.

Watch Netflix Denmark from Anywhere

Best VPN Service Providers

FlashRouter-Ready VPNs

The answer to unblocking Netflix for any region including Denmark  is a VPN. A VPN service, or Virtual Private Network service, is a subscription-based service designed to protect your sensitive online information and allow to access a more open internet.

When you log into your VPN, all of your activity is tunneled through encrypted servers that VPN services have set up all over the world. This makes it untraceable and thereby protects you from snooping governments, hackers, and identity thieves.

VPNs also allow you to use geographically restricted areas of the internet. When you log in, you get to choose your server and whatever country you’d like that server to be in.

Best VPN Service For Denmark

When you choose, say, Denmark, you get an IP address from Denmark, which makes your computer (or tablet, smartphone, or whatever other internet-capable device you may be using) think that you’re in Denmark. Now you can access Denmark websites like Netflix Denmark with ease.

There are some great VPN services out there for Denmark IP addresses but the limitation of some low cost of free VPN options is the absence of a wide variety of country servers and/or slow speeds.

  • CyberGhost - The EU specialists with 7  servers in Denmark
  • IPVanish – 2 Tier 1 high speed servers in Copenhagen plus 69 other servers all over the EU and 40+ in the US & Canada.
  • HideMyAss – 4 Servers & 300+ IP addresses in Denmark.

Enjoy Netflix Denmark  a VPN-Ready FlashRouter

But if you really want to make sure that you have the best Netflix Denmark streaming experience possible, then you need to bolster your VPN with a VPN-ready FlashRouter.

As the video above explains, a FlashRouter is the best way to future-proof your wireless network. What we do is take already powerful routers and boost their functionality, speed, and power by flashing them with DD-WRT and Tomato firmware, which are replacement firmwares that far surpass stock firmware by every important measure.

A FlashRouter allows users the ability to access advanced security options, extend your wireless signal, and control how your bandwidth is allocated, which is especially handy for people streaming video overseas.

Best VPN Routers for Netflix Instant Denmark

To find the FlashRouter that best suits you, we recommend taking a look at our most recent best-sellers list, or even our list of the Best DD-WRT routers of 2014.

Asus RT-AC87U DD-WRT OpenVPN Router

Asus RT-AC87U DD-WRT Router

On these lists, you’ll find routers for all needs and price-ranges, from our top-of-the-line Wireless-AC devices (such as the the just released Asus RT-AC87U DD-WRT AC2400 DD-WRT Router, the monolithic Netgear R7000 Nighthawk DD-WRT or the Asus RT-AC66U Tomato), to lean, economy models that perform like a dream (such as the Linksys E1200 DD-WRT FlashRouter & the E2500 TomatoUSB FlashRouter).

How about a budget Wireless-AC model? Check out the Asus RT-AC56U DD-WRT OpenVPN FlashRouter, which brings you Wireless-AC speeds without breaking the bank.

Each FlashRouter includes a complete setup guide tailored to your VPN provider and setup including troubleshooting tips, 3 months of direct support with our expert Netflix-loving team, and at least a 90 day warranty. Contact us any time.

How to Unblock Hulu Outside the US & Most Popular Content on Hulu

How To Unblock Hulu Internationally - Best VPN Hulu

Popular Content on Hulu Plus

There’s plenty to celebrate about Hulu Plus (in fact, we’ve previously done it ourselves). For those of us who have cut the cord on our pricey cable package, the streaming service beats Netflix Instant by providing current shows the morning after their original air times.

Hulu Plus Helps Cut the Cord

But there’s more to Hulu Plus than the opportunity to catch last night’s Saturday Night Live, or Brooklyn Nine-Nine, or Community (and hey, they might be on the verge of saving that show from cancellation!). They have a movie selection that includes hundreds of Criterion Collection movies, perfect for helping aspiring film buffs fill in the gaps of their cinema knowledge.

Let’s not forget to mention their backlog of long-finished TV shows that live on in their libraries. Whether ’90s sitcom lovers prefer the erudite charms of Frasier or the silly slapstick of 3rd Rock From the Sun, Hulu Plus has got you covered. They even revived the cult anime series, Sailor Moon, a few months ago. And we haven’t even got to their terrific originals (but we will below).

Put another way, there’s no shortage of material for streaming media fans of all stripes. No matter your taste, Hulu Plus has plenty for you.

How to Watch Hulu Plus Outside of the US

Best VPN Hulu Plus - Unblock Hulu Plus from Outside the US

Best VPN Providers

Unfortunately, as it stands now, Hulu Plus is not available outside of the USA and Japan. But don’t fret, would-be streamers around the world; there are simple ways to avoid that problem. The simplest method for unblocking Hulu and watching Hulu internationally is VPN.

Using a VPN Service to Unblock Hulu

A VPN (Virtual Private Network) service is just what it sounds. It is a subscription-based service that acts as a virtual tunnel that transports all of your information through secure servers across the globe when you sign in.

The first of which is to protect your wireless network and all of your sensitive materials (e-mails, credit card numbers, etc.) with an extra level of high-grade encryption on your device. Ideal for use in WiFi hotspots in public places like cafes, hotels and airports.

The second purpose, for international Hulu Plus fans and travellers, is to allow users to unblock geographically restricted material all over the web. Using a VPN, those secure servers give your device an alternate IP address to your place of choice at a click of a button.

This effectively tricks your computer into thinking that it’s somewhere that it’s not. So if you want your computer to think it’s in America (where you can stream Hulu Plus freely), just log in to your VPN and pick a US-server. You’ll be watching last night’s The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon before you know it.

Top VPNs to Unblock Hulu

Recently, Hulu has attempted to block VPN services over what they claim as “piracy concerns” by blocking known VPN addresses. But vigilant providers that are proactive are constantly cycling addresses staying ahead of the curve.

That is why it is important to choose a provider with a varied amount of servers for when Hulu targets one area or one with a large pool of addresses. Here are a few providers that we have tested without issue for using Hulu. Just about every VPN service on our supported provider list offers US-based IP addresses, but we particularly recommend checking out

It is also ideal to pick a provider that offers fast server that will allow for the fastest HD streaming on your Roku, AppleTV, PS4 or SmartTV wherever you are in the world, whether you are travelling or an US expat, in the military or relocating for work.

How to Unblock Hulu Outside the US on Any Device – Roku Internationally With a FlashRouter

At FlashRouters, we take great routers and enhance them, improve their functionality, speed, and versatility. By flashing every router we have with DD-WRT or Tomato firmware, we make sure every customer of ours receives a dynamic, powerful machine that allows them to extend their wireless range, watch and divide their bandwidth, and even access advanced security options.

As the video above demonstrates, if you want to get the most out of your Hulu Plus streaming experience, as well as your VPN experience, you’re going to need a FlashRouter.

Better yet, users who subscribe to a VPN service on supported provider list can order a router that arrives ready to work with your VPN right out of the box! No futzing around with a tricky VPN installation process on our watch. Hold on to your old router and use our popular dual-router setup, enabling you to switch between your local network and your VPN with ease.

We’d hate to pick favorites to recommend, so you can always head over to our most recent best-sellers list and see if something suits you (or our best and most popular DD-WRT routers of 2014 list).

Oh, what the heck. Here’s a few of our top choices:

Top Original Hulu Plus Shows To Watch

Watch Moone Boy on Hulu Plus

Moone Boy: Only on Hulu Plus

Moone Boy - If you can’t get enough of the lately omnipresent Chris O’Dowd, then Moone Boy is the perfect Hulu Plus original for you. O’Dowd co-stars as the imaginary friend of a lonely kid in 1989 Ireland, and their relationship creates the heart of this warm and witty show.

The Awesomes – Though Hulu Plus offers plenty reruns of Saturday Night Live as well as episodes of Late Night With Seth Meyers the morning after they air, you can still get even more Seth Meyers in your streaming diet. The Awesomes, co-created by Meyers and Mike Shoemaker, follows a group of second-rate superheroes as they work together to stop a supervillain. Unsurprisingly, the show features first-rate voice work from lots of talented comedic actors in Meyers orbit (Bill Hader, Rachel Dratch, Taran Killem, Rashida Jones).

Misfits – When a freak electrical storm hits their town, strange things begin to happen to 5 teenagers and they soon realize they’ve turned into superheroes. Each of them possess a power they didn’t choose or want, a power which reveals each of their deepest, darkest insecurities.

Doozers - If cutting the cord on your cable package seemingly left you without much programming for your child to enjoy, don’t worry: Hulu Plus offers you Doozers. And if you’re worried you’ll have to suffer through an annoying kids show, you should know that Doozers is the long-awaited spin-off from Jim Henson’s beloved Fraggle Rock.

Deadbeat  – Here’s one for the late night cult crowd. Deadbeat, about a stoner who makes his money as a medium for ghosts, is a great showcase for star, Tyler Labine, who some of you might recognize from the underrated Tucker & Dale Vs. Evil.

American Ninja Warrior – If you’re worried that Hulu Plus can’t fill your need for competitive reality shows, here’s American Ninja Warrior to the rescue. Watch everyday folks compete for the chance to win $500,0o0 by learning to pull off incredible acrobatic feats.

Wireless-AC Compared to Wireless-N

Haven’t upgraded your router in 2 years or more? It is more than likely that this fact alone can be hindering your entire network performance.  The list of things that hammer your router and require performance increases everyday.

Most likely you have heard the terms Wireless-N & Wireless-G. Wireless-AC is the latest wireless draft for exponential signal capacity in WiFi market. Where Wireless-G tops out at 54 Mbps and Wireless N ranges from 450-900 Mbps, AC can more than doubles the top end capabilities of Wireless-N.

Now that Apple has cracked the seal across their entire product line with Wireless-AC, most new gadgets shipped during the rest of 2014 holiday season will want to keep up by integrating the Wireless-AC Gigabit Wireless capability a standard. Make sure your 

Combine that power with the DD-WRT added perks of being able to manage wireless transmission power, block ads with Privoxy, embedded OpenVPN & PPTP integration, manage access restrictions, a built-in SPI firewall, a bevy of graphing, logs and monitoring features.

Wondering what the importance of these mumbo jumbo specifications? We’ll break it down for you and why certain specifications are important.

Processor

Processing is the key to high performance routing and this one has room to burn and grow as streaming video demands become iincreasinglymore intensive.To handle the increased pressures of our multitude of connected activities having ample processing power to burn is ideal.

For VPN users, having a large processor is imperative for the constant encryption and decryption the router will perform in this process. The better the processor, the faster the VPN encrypted information can get to you.

Router USB PortAUSB 3.0 port for best-in-class high speed data transfer (up to 10x faster than USB 2.0) and network sharing. Use these integrated USB port to attach a backup storage device, Network Attached Storage (NAS) backup,  or for creating a network printer. The faster the USB ports, the faster you can do network backups, transfer & share files between devices.

High Powered External Antennas

External antennas are utilized for maximum wireless reach and performance. since they are external. With minimal effort, they can be easily upgraded to even more powerful antennas for extended reach if you wish. DD-WRT allows you to control the transmission power of these antennas as well.

Wireless-AC Speed, Wireless-N Compatible

Getting a Wireless-AC device means you are future-proofing for network needs and staying ahead of networking demands rather than just playing catchup. Even though it is AC compatible, it will be Wireless-N and Wireless-G compatible as well.
