The Grand National has become a part of British culture; the handicap steeplechase race started some two centuries and has since become one of the most celebrated horse racing events in the United Kingdom. As a matter of fact, it is widely known that many people who don’t regularly watch or partake in horse race betting attend the 3-day event.
The annual event takes place at Aintree, Liverpool and the 2020 edition will hold between the 4th of April and 6th of April. Grand National is not only the biggest event in the horse racing calendar, but it also offers the biggest prize fund (a feat that is unmatched anywhere in Europe).
ITV acquired the broadcasting rights of the event in a 4-year deal in 2017. The deal runs out in 2020, meaning this will be the last edition. For people living in the United Kingdom, they can watch the race on ITV if they own cable. Those who prefer to watch on their mobile devices can watch by streaming Grand National live on the ITV website or ITV player app. The ITV hub app is available on streaming services such as Amazon Fire and Roku.
The Grand National 2020 is watched by over 600 million throughout the world. Most of these people live outside of the United Kingdom, which means they won’t have direct access to watch the race on ITV.
Fans living outside the UK can use a virtual private network to get access to live streams of the event anywhere in the world. The VPN changes your IP address to a server in another region (this time UK) and gives you secured and encrypted access to live-action of the Grand National.
The best VPN to use for this is ExpressVPN. It is rated the best in the world and is compatible with several devices such as smartphones, iPads, Fire stick, PC, Mac and many more.
