If you travel regularly, you may have already noticed that your streaming apps don’t always follow you. Some streaming services offer a limited service depending on the country you’re visiting while others don’t work at all. The best way to circumvent this while abroad is to use one of the best VPNs. That way, you can still watch the Formula E live stream that you’ve already paid for. We recommend signing up for NordVPN. From there, all you need to do is pick a US-based server and you can persuade your internet connection that you’re back home. You also gain better security and privacy so you won’t have to worry about hotel Wi-Fi being unsafe to use. There isn’t an official NordVPN free trial but with a 30-day money-back guarantee, you can give it a go risk-free. It’s good enough that you’ll stick around and sign up to one of the many great NordVPN deals around.
