How to Watch French Open on FireStick 2019 from Anywhere
French Open will get coverage on TV channels around the globe. Each match will be delivered live and you can expect to see the action via the internet using live streaming alternatives offered by the TV channels.
ITV is one such broadcaster which allows you to enjoy live streaming over the internet. It’s quite convenient in comparison to cable TV as you can watch on the device of your choice. It’s simply a matter of signing up to use the service.
ITV recently announced that it has acquired the rights to free stream Roland Garros (French Open) until the year 2021. The deal is effective in starting the upcoming French Open 2019. ITV states that it will showcase a minimum of 90 hours from each tournament.
But there is one catch. Although ITV is free, it’s restricted to the United Kingdom. That means unless you reside in the United Kingdom, the service will remain inaccessible to you. There’s a way to get around that problem, and that’s through VPN.
One of the perks of using a VPN is the ability to use a private IP address. You could be sitting anywhere in the world and browse the web anonymously by borrowing an IP address from a server available in a different region. It is known as location spoofing and provides a convenient way to change your virtual location.
