I dont have Sky TV or BT Broadband so cannot get BT Sport. How else can I watch it live?

Can I perhaps watch an online stream of a foreign channel? Maybe I will need a VPN to fool them into thinking I am in their country (I think foreigners cannot watch BBC iplayer so assume other countries may have a similar policy).

How are others planning on watching?

Thanks

if you are not too bothered by copyright, get a "kodi" box

Or even install Kodi on your PC

I have looked into kodi but apparently it is a real hassle finding a half decent feed for BTSport, I honestly don't mind paying off it means I get a good quality reliable feed.

if not bothered about live, it appears on their youtube channel quite quickly

It did in the previous cycle. Not any more. Not complete races.

Canal+ have posted full coverage of ACWS with around a 24 hour delay and French commentary. I am hoping they do the same for the AC. I actually like the French commentary but realise that's not to everyone's taste.

I believe you don't need to be a BT Broadband or Sky customer to subscribe to BT Sport. Minimum 1 year subscription and there's absolutely nothing on it of any interest to me except the AC for a couple of months.

Those who want to watch pirated BT Sport coverage don't seem to find it awfully hard to find ways to go about it.

only football and boxing "crash" on Kodi, you won't get issues with ACWS, you will need to install Kodi, then add "Pheonix" in video add ons, quite straight forward

Oh great - bt sport have brought in claire balding. I was happy with the previous tv format, and can go do summat else while she's filling time.
But will someone please get her/them to shut up at 2mins and handover to the proper commentators, rather than wittering over half the pre-start!!
