Don’t live in one of these places? Don’t worry, you can still stream as you do using a VPN. A VPN (virtual private network) helps protect your data, can mask your IP address, and is perhaps the most popular because it is especially useful in the streaming age. Whether you want to watch Friends on Netflix (which left the US version of the streamer in 2019) or tune in to the F1 race this weekend without a cable package, a VPN can help you. Want to try a VPN for the first time? This guide provides an overview of the best VPN options for every type of user.


ExpressVPN offers ‘borderless internet’, meaning you can tune into an Austrian or Australian live stream this month, instead of paying for Peacock and the Tennis Channel for US tennis tournament coverage. All you have to do is sign up for ExpressVPN, change your server location, and then find free livestream coverage on 9Now or ServusTV.

ExpressVPN’s extra protection, speed, and range of location options make it a great choice for novice VPN users looking to expand their streaming capabilities. Plus, it’s Endgadget’s top pick for the best streaming VPN. New users can save 49% when they sign up for ExpressVPN’s 12-month plan.

After a week of qualifying matches, the 2024 French Open officially started on Sunday, May 26, 2024. The Roland Garros tennis tournament lasts two weeks and ends with the men’s final on June 9.

Unfortunately for American fans, the games start bright and early at 5 a.m. for those in the Eastern time zone (and even earlier – or later, depending on how you look at it – for those in Pacific Time).

This year’s American coverage of the French Open will be divided between NBC Sports, Tennis Channel and Peacock. This Sunday and Monday, the French Open matches will be broadcast live on NBC and Peacock, before the action moves to the Tennis Channel this week. Then the semifinals and finals return to NBC/peacock.
