With a VPN, you can stream any country’s DAZN library from anywhere in the world. This will give you access to all the sports that are blocked in your location with just one subscription. In this comprehensive step-by-step guide, we show you how to use a VPN with DAZN.

DAZN is available in over 200 countries, but every country has its own library of sports and competitions. Depending on where you’re streaming from, you’re likely missing out on NFL Game Pass, the NBA, the Premier League, and heavyweight boxing.

With a Virtual Private Network (VPN), you can mask your IP address and replace it with one from another country. This will change your DAZN region and give you access to a much wider catalog of sports and competitions.

You can’t just use any VPN service, though. DAZN enforces the strongest VPN blocks we’ve seen. Out of all the 69 VPNs we tested, only five worked with DAZN Canada (the country with the most DAZN content) and only one worked in all regions.

Quick Guide: How to Watch DAZN from Anywhere

  1. Register for, download, and install a VPN service. We strongly recommend Windscribe VPN.
  2. Connect to a server in the US or Canada and sign up to DAZN. Depending on your true location, you may have to use a gift card for payment.
  3. Launch DAZN and start streaming sports events. Simply change your VPN server location to access a different DAZN library.

Read on to find out how to sign up for DAZN from abroad, which VPNs can be used to access specific sports and competitions, and troubleshooting tips for common DAZN error codes.

How to Sign Up to DAZN with a VPN

In order to access multiple DAZN libraries with a VPN, your DAZN account must be registered in one of the following countries. The best countries for watching DAZN are:

  • Austria
  • Canada
  • Germany
  • Italy
  • Japan
  • Spain
  • Switzerland
  • USA

If your account was set-up anywhere else, such as the UK or Australia, you will be blocked from streaming any DAZN content not available in your home region. As a result, no VPN will be able to unblock DAZN from your account.

This is why it’s essential to download a VPN before signing up to DAZN. With a VPN, you can hide your true location and create an account from any country.

That said, the way to sign up for DAZN varies depending on whether you reside in one of the eight countries listed above. If you don’t, the process is slightly more difficult. We’ve outlined the two different ways to sign up for DAZN in the instructions below:

Create a DAZN Account Outside of Your Region

  1. Sign up for and download Windscribe VPN.
  2. Open the Windscribe app and connect to a VPN server: We recommend Canada as it comes with a free trial and a cheap annual subscription. But don’t worry, you’ll still be able to access all DAZN regions, no matter which of the eight countries above your account is registered in.
  3. Buy a gift card to use for payment: Use Amazon for Canada, or view this DAZN article for stores in other regions.
  4. Go to the DAZN website and create an account: We suggest signing up for the annual subscription plan.
  5. For payment, enter the gift card code that you’ve received.
  6. Click ‘Add a payment method later’ when prompted to provide additional payment details.
  7. Click ‘Start Subscription’.
  8. You now have full access to DAZN: You’ll also get a 30-day free trial, unless you signed up via the US or Italy.
  9. To lengthen your subscription, repeat step (3) and enter the code in your account settings.

If you want to know why we recommend Windscribe as the best VPN for DAZN, read our dedicated section in this guide.

Sign Up to DAZN from Your Home Country

  1. Make sure you are currently located in, and have a payment method registered in, one of the eight countries listed above.
  2. Go to the DAZN website and create an account: We suggest signing up for the annual subscription plan.
  3. Enter your preferred payment details: You can choose between your credit and debit card, or PayPal account.
  4. Click ‘Start Subscription’.
  5. You now have full access to DAZN: Plus a 30-day free trial (if your account is not based in the US or Italy).

Note:
If you sign up for an account from your home country of Austria, Italy, Germany, or Spain, you will be subject to the EU cross-border portability regulation. This means you won’t be able to stream the DAZN library of any other EU country. This same restriction does not apply to accounts outside of the EU or any created using gift card codes.

What You Can Watch on DAZN with a VPN

DAZN shows different sports and competitions depending on your country. Even with an existing DAZN subscription, you won’t be able to access all the available content.

The amount of content available in each region varies wildly, too. For example, the US DAZN library contains just 19 major competitions, while the German library has 94.

No DAZN library contains all sports and competitions, so you will have to use a combination of regions to access everything. You do this by using a VPN to geo-spoof your location to whichever DAZN library contains the sport you want to stream.

To make this easy for you, we’ve collected the major competitions from four of the most popular DAZN libraries along with the VPNs that unblock them. We’ve summarised this in the table below:

DAZN Region
Sports & Competitions
Compatible VPNs
Canada Combat Sports: Boxing, UFC, WWE
Cricket: England, Pakistan & West Indies home matches
Darts: UK Open
Football: NFL Game Pass
Soccer: Premier League, Serie A, Champions League, Europa League
ExpressVPN, NordVPN, PrivateVPN, Surfshark, Windscribe
Germany Baseball: MLB
Basketball: NBA
Combat Sports: Boxing, UFC, WWE
Ice Hockey: NHL
Soccer: Champions League, La Liga
Tennis: Australia, French & US Open
ExpressVPN, Surfshark, Windscribe
Japan Baseball: NPB
Combat Sports: Boxing, UFC
Motorsport: Formula One
Soccer: J1 League, Premier League, La Liga, Serie A
PrivateVPN, Windscribe
Spain Combat Sports: Boxing, UFC
Darts: UK Open
Soccer: Premier League, Copa del Rey
Tennis: US Open
NordVPN, Surfshark, Windscribe

As you can see from the table, DAZN Canada contains the most popular sports and competitions. This includes every game from the NFL, all Premier League matches, and most boxing fights. It’s also the most accessible library, with five of the VPNs we tested able to unblock it.

If you want to use a VPN solely for DAZN Canada, we recommend using ExpressVPN over Windscribe. In our tests, ExpressVPN was able to stream DAZN in buffer-free HD from its Canada servers. While Windscribe was the most reliable VPN we tested for Canada, its speeds were often slower.

That said, you will need access to several catalogs to stream all of DAZN’s popular sports events. For example, the Candian library misses out on Formula One, the NHL, La Liga, and Grand Slam tennis. If you want to access all of this content, you’ll need to use Windscribe, as it was the only VPN to work in every region we tested.

Don’t worry though, you only need one VPN subscription and one DAZN subscription to access all those libraries. You can change between them as often as you like.

EXPERT TIP:

Visit DAZN’s Wikipedia page to see a full list of where each sports competition is available.

How to Watch DAZN with a VPN

Here’s how to stream DAZN with a VPN:

  1. Make sure you have an active VPN and DAZN subscription: We recommend Windscribe VPN and a Canadian DAZN account. You can find out how to get both here.
  2. Open your VPN app and connect to a server in your chosen DAZN location: For example, to unblock DAZN Canada, connect to a Canadian VPN server.
  3. Launch DAZN: This can be accessed through the website on desktop or the app on mobile or streaming devices.
  4. Start watching DAZN: To stream more DAZN content, simply change your VPN’s virtual location and refresh the DAZN website or app.

If the above method doesn’t work, or you encounter any error codes, try our workarounds below.

We’ve also created a video tutorial to show you how to unblock DAZN with a VPN. We’ve used Windscribe as an example, but the process is similar for all other VPN services.

Windscribe: The Best VPN for DAZN

After testing 69 VPNs with DAZN, these are the reasons why we believe Windscribe is the best VPN for DAZN:

1Unblocks the Most DAZN Libraries

To make sure we recommend only the best and most reliable VPNs for DAZN, we conducted the most comprehensive investigation to date into which VPNs work with DAZN in each country.

We tested 10 of the most popular VPNs in nine of the best DAZN regions. To make our results more accurate, we tested each of these VPNs on Windows, iOS, Amazon Fire TV Stick, and Chromecast with Google TV. In total, we performed over 360 manual tests, and continue to verify these results each week.

We found that Windscribe unblocks the largest number of DAZN libraries. It worked in all of the nine regions we tested, including Canada, the US, and Japan. By comparison, top VPNs like ExpressVPN and NordVPN only worked in four regions.

We’ve collected the full results of our DAZN VPN research in the table below:

2Fast Enough Download Speeds for HD Streaming

With the added encryption and connection routing, every VPN will slow down your internet connection to some degree. As a result, it’s not enough for a VPN to merely bypass DAZN’s geo-blocks, it also has to be fast enough to stream the content in a high-resolution without any buffering or lag.

Here are the download speeds that DAZN requires:

  • 2Mbps for Standard Definition (SD) quality
  • 8Mbps for High Definition (HD) quality

Our tests found that Windscribe is fast enough to watch DAZN content in HD. To ensure you’ll be able to stream this content from all of DAZN’s libraries, we tested Windscribe’s speeds when connected to servers from around the world.

Using our 100Mbps test line, Windscribe’s speeds fell to 87Mbps when connected to a nearby server, and 85Mbps when connected to a server in Canada. Our speeds dropped to 59Mbps when connected to a Japan server, which is quite disappointing for a top VPN service. That said, our speeds always remained well above the 8Mbps threshold needed for HD DAZN streaming.

You can see our full results from Windscribe’s speed test in the table below:

Server Location
Download Speed
Speed Loss
Distance (miles)
No VPN
100Mbps

USA
87Mbps
13%
4,484 mi
Japan
59Mbps
41%
5,870 mi

These are certainly not the fastest VPN speeds we’ve seen and simply don’t match those of other top VPNs. Our findings are backed up by our automated speed testing tool. When connecting to Toronto from New York, our tool also shows Windscribe to be an adequate, but not extremely fast VPN.

VPN Speed Performance Comparison Chart

Overall, Windscribe’s speeds are more than fast enough for streaming DAZN in HD. If you instead want a faster VPN that’ll work with fewer DAZN libraries, we recommend ExpressVPN.

Note:
DAZN does not yet support 4K UHD, so you only need a relatively slow download speed to be able to stream in the highest resolution.

3Windscribe Free Works With DAZN

Windscribe Free is the best free VPN for DAZN. The other 100% free VPNs we tested, like ProtonVPN and Hide.me, failed to unblock DAZN on any server.

Windscribe Free’s apps are also ad-free, user-friendly, and the VPN does not log user data like some other free VPNs. The VPN retains only a minimal amount of logs, which are used solely for maintenance purposes.

Importantly, Windscribe Free unblocks the Canada, US, Germany, and Switzerland DAZN libraries. This will get you access to many sports events and competitions, including games from the NFL, NBA, and the Premier League. This is impressive for a totally free service, but it doesn’t come close to unblocking the same number of regions as Windscribe’s paid product.

However, the main drawback to using Windscribe Free for DAZN is that you can only use 10GB of data per month. We’ve found that this equates to approximately four hours of HD streaming. This will be ample if you want to stream the occasional game without paying for a full subscription. But if you want to regularly unblock DAZN, it’s worth paying for an unlimited Windscribe plan.

4Compatible with a Wide Range of Devices

You can use Windscribe to unblock DAZN on mobile, desktop, and TV. In all, Windscribe has apps for Windows, MacOS, Android, iOS, Amazon Fire TV, and Google TV. All of these apps are easy-to-use and backed by strong security features, including AES-256 encryption and a VPN kill switch.

Sadly, no publicly-available Smart DNS feature currently works with DAZN, so you won’t be able to unblock DAZN on your PS4 or Apple TV.

Windscribe does have an upcoming DNS-only solution, called ControlD, which regularly unblocked DAZN Canada in our tests. However, this is currently still in beta and is separate from the Windscribe subscription.

How to Bypass DAZN Error Codes

DAZN attempts to block VPNs in order to comply with its territorial licensing agreements. With live sports, these restrictions are strict, so the streaming service prevents access from any IP address that is known to belong to a VPN service.

Here’s how to bypass the two most common DAZN error messages:

“DAZN Isn’t Available in This Country”

The error message that DAZN displays when it detects you are using a VPN

DAZN displays this error message when it detects you are using a VPN. To get around this, use one of the VPNs we recommend. You can see which VPNs unblock each DAZN region in our summary table.

DAZN Error Code 50-006-403: “Your DAZN Account Is Not Available in Your Current Location”

The error message displayed when you try accessing another country's DAZN library, after registering your account in an unsupported region

You will be shown this message while attempting to unblock DAZN with an account registered outside one of these eight countries. If you set up your account elsewhere, such as the UK, you will only be able to access the UK DAZN library.

To fix this, create an account from one of the eight working countries. You can see a step-by-step guide on how to do this here.

DAZN Error Code 50-075-403: “We Believe You Are Accessing DAZN Using a VPN”

The error message that is displayed when DAZN detects a VPN at registrationYou will see this message if DAZN detects you are using a VPN when purchasing a subscription. This happens because, unlike other streaming services, DAZN uses additional VPN checks when you are making a payment.

This is stricter than the standard geo-blocks placed on content. So even VPNs that regularly work with DAZN sometimes fail at this stage.

To bypass this error code, we recommend using Windscribe. We found that Windscribe is the only VPN that regularly worked when signing up for DAZN in another region.

If you don’t want to change your current VPN, just use Windscribe’s free tier to register for DAZN, then switch back to your usual VPN service once your account is set up.

DAZN VPN FAQs

Can I get DAZN for free?

Yes, with a combination of Windscribe Free and a DAZN free trial, you can stream DAZN free for 30 days.

You will have to be currently located in a region in which DAZN offers a free trial, as signing up with a gift card requires an initial payment.

Here are the countries where DAZN currently offers a free trial:

  • Austria
  • Canada
  • Germany
  • Japan
  • Spain
  • Switzerland

After registering for DAZN in one of these regions, sign up to Windscribe and verify your email address to get 10GB of free monthly storage. Then, you can connect to a server in Canada, the US, Germany, or Switzerland, and stream DAZN for free during the trial period.

Yes, using a VPN with DAZN is perfectly legal. There is no law anywhere in the world that will prevent you from changing your virtual location to access different DAZN regions.

It’s also not against DAZN’s Terms of Use, as the use of VPNs is not mentioned anywhere in the document. The streaming service does have a separate article dedicated to VPNs, but this simply states that you will see an error message when it detects you are connected to a VPN server.

In short, you will not face any punishment from law enforcement or DAZN for using a VPN.

What devices can I unblock DAZN on?

Our method for unblocking DAZN with a VPN works on all major devices. This includes Windows, MacOS, iOS, and Android. It also works on some streaming devices, such as Amazon Fire TV Stick and Chromecast with Google TV.

Sadly, though, no Smart DNS services currently work with DAZN. This means there is no easy way to unblock DAZN on devices that don’t allow VPN apps, such as Apple TV and PS4.

Instead, you’ll have to set up a VPN on your home router. This will ensure every device on your network can stream DAZN, but we only recommend it for advanced users.

How many devices can I use with DAZN?

DAZN only allows you to stream on up to two devices at one time. All of the VPNs we recommend on this page allow at least five simultaneous devices, so you can watch DAZN on two screens using the same VPN subscription.
