This will be the 18th edition of the competition. 

We know that a particular portion of the community is slightly bummed that it could not witness both the FIBA and FIFA World cup together. 

However, there is no reason to get upset as at least one of the tournaments will soon get going. 

All you need to do is to get yourself ready for streaming HD sports content online. 

China will host the latest edition of the Basketball World Cup. 

The tournament will officially start on 31 August 2019. 

It will finish on 15 September 2019. 

If you are having a hard time waiting for such a long time then know that you are not alone. 

There are many people who want to watch the FIBA Basketball World Cup as soon as possible. 

In this guide, we will explain the current FIBA world cup TV rights and also show you how to watch the FIBA World Cup 2019 live and online. 

List of official broadcasters FIBA basketball World Cup 2019 edition

So, where exactly can you watch the 18th edition of the FIBA World Cup live and online? 

watch_FIBA_online

FIBA may not be as big of a deal as FIFA but this is how you watch it online and free.

Well, we will tell you that in a bit with the help of a list of premium channels that will broadcast the whole FIBA tournament. 

Before that though, we would like you to know that any channel that is showing the FIBA 19 World Cup is doing so only for a specific country as FIBA has different TV rights deals with each country. 

In other words, don’t assume that a channel with FIBA TV rights in Russia also has them in your country as well (given you don’t live in Russia).

For all we know, the channel might replay some old golf tournament at the same time when the rest of the world is busy watching FIBA World Cup tournament. 

This is where you need to learn more about geo-restrictions. 

Streaming services including online channels regularly make use of geo-restrictions in order to limit what online users can and cannot watch. 

So how do streaming services know where a user is located? 

Well, they first examine the IP address of the visitor in question. 

Then streaming services use that IP address to determine the location of the user. 

If the streaming service detects that the user lives abroad, it moves forward by blocking the user without any warnings. 

So how will you know if a streaming service has blocked you? 

Well, most of the times you wouldn’t know. 

The content on a given streaming site would simply refuse to play. 

Other times, you will get a notice which will inform you ‘the reason’ why the given channel has blocked your access to its content.

To take an example, let’s consider ESPN.

All of us know that ESPN is the greatest channel on earth for people living in the United States for the simple reason that they are crazy about sports. 

ESPN, for one reason or another, only allows users to have access to its sports content who live in the United States. 

Any user who comes to the official website of ESPN with an IP address that does not belong to the US gets whacked with an error message instead of the video that the user request. 

The error message informs the user that the content is blocked outside the US.

That is why our list is not only going to include the channels which are broadcasting FIBA Basketball World Cup but also the country in which the channel is broadcasting the tournament.

The only way to watch the FIBA world cup 2019 is with premium subscription services that cost money, but if you don’t currently have one of these accounts then don’t worry as we will show you how to watch the FIBA world cup for FREE further down the article.

If you already have a current paid subscription to the following streaming services AND you live in that country, then you don’t need a VPN, you can just log on and stream all the FIBA world cup you want.

FIBA World Cup TV Rights USA: ESPN+
FIBA World Cup TV Rights Russia: Match TV
FIBA World Cup TV Rights Italy: Sky Italia
FIBA World Cup TV Rights France: Canal+
FIBA World Cup TV Rights Canada: DAZN
FIBA World Cup TV Rights China: CCTV
FIBA World Cup TV Rights Australia: Fox Sports
FIBA World Cup TV Rights UK: livebasketball

It’s not all doom and gloom if you don’t want to shell out for a paid subscription to one of the services above. 

With the techniques that we’ll mention here you will have the ability to not only unblock ESPN+ and other sports channels but almost all streaming services no matter what your position is on the map. 

So get scrolling and keep reading.

 

How to watch the FIBA World Cup basketball 2019 live and online outside your country.

Of course, even though the channels that we will mention are only showing the FIBA World Cup basketball tournament in only a selected number of countries, that in no way mean that you have to go to those specific countries physically in order to access the content that you want to access. 

So how can you bypass all the restrictions and watch FIBA Basketball World Cup 2019? 

Well, you need a solid solution. 

That solution is a VPN or Virtual Private Networks. 

VPN services represent the only tools that you can use online in order to change your location and make it appear to other sites as if you are accessing their content from a place other than your original physical place/country/location. 

All that you have to do is to sign up for a VPN service and then perform a few clicks on the VPN app and off you go. 

As far as the virtual world goes you can become a temporary resident of any country that you like. 

So how does a VPN do all this magic? 

Well, it is not that difficult. 

VPN services change your location by rerouting your online traffic via a dedicated VPN server. 

The location of your VPN server is dependent on your need. 

Once you have connected to a VPN server of your choice and preferred location, the VPN service changes your IP address to the IP address of the region that you have selected. 

Our research has found that NordVPN is the best VPN to use to unlock the FIBA basketball championship as they have some of the fastest servers, have a 30-day money-back guarantee and they are one of the cheapest VPN’s on the market. Check out NordVPN here.

  1. First, you need a VPN service.
    Here you need to choose a VPN with great care because if you don’t then you might end up with a VPN service that does not work with the FIBA website.

Again, if you are looking to sign up for a credible VPN service which will not only elevate your online browsing experience but will also protect you then you need to click here and read more about the best VPN service providers in the market today. 

Generally speaking, you should be looking for a VPN service provider that is not only fast but also secure. 

Moreover, the VPN service should not cause noticeable VPN speed drops even if provides good encryption.

shutterstock_1446662747Apart from that, you also need to make sure that you sign up for a VPN service that has servers in most of the countries that we have mentioned above. 

Now, if privacy is something that bothers you a lot then you need to sign up for a VPN service that has a genuine zero-logs policy. 

A no-logs policy means that the VPN service that you are interested in does not record any of the user’s data for any kind of future use. 

With that said, it is also true that there is no single VPN service provider that will fit all your needs. 

You will have to read a bit and then mix and match based on what you think you need the most.

Do you want to become a cord-cutter in the US? 

With the number of options that you now have, it is not that hard to do. 

So why should you become a cord cutter? 

Well, you should become a cord-cutter if you do not like long-contract cable subscriptions. 

There is a much easier way to watch the latest edition of the FIBA World Cup if you are in the US. 

Here are the top options, 

Sling TV

Sling TV is probably one of the most popular online streaming services. 

Many believe that Sling TV actually started the revolution that all of know today as cord-cutting. 

Now, the first feature that will attract you towards Sling TV is its price. 

Sling TV is fairly cheap at $20 per month. 

This may not sound too cheap to you if you are reading this in 2019 but the fact is when Sling TV started, such a price for such a platform was not common at all. 

However, Sling TV didn’t just sit on its initial success. 

It kept on growing. 

Now, it is an in-demand streaming service even though people have access to the likes of Netflix and Amazon Prime Video. 

With Sling TV, users have the option of accessing over a dozen different channels that offer quality content in the US. 

The list of channels includes ESPN. 

And since that is exactly what you would want if you want to watch the FIBA World Cup, Sling TV is more than a capable streaming service for you. 

With that said, please keep in mind that the channels you actually get access to are based on the subscription package that you subscribe to. 

Sling TV has an Orange and Orange+ Blue package. 

The Orange package costs $25 and the Orange + Blue subscription package costs $40. 

So why didn’t we mention the Blue package? 

Because the Blue package does not come with access to ESPN. 

If you sign up for Sling TV right now you will probably have to pay around $15 for the first month and then $25 per month after that. 

As mentioned before, if you have the Orange + Blue package you will have to pay $40 per month. 

The good news is that Sling TV has a free trial for each and every new user. 

You could technically watch a small portion of FIBA World Cup for free if you sign up for the free trial and then cancel your subscription after you are done watching your content. 

Currently, Sling TV offers support for the following list of internet-enabled devices, 

  • Roku
  • Samsung Smart TV
  • Xbox
  • Chromecast
  • Amazon Fire Stick
  • Android TV
  • Apple TV
  • Mac
  • PC
  • Android

PlayStation Vue

Just like Sling TV, PlayStation Vue is also a great option if you want to replace your cable subscription. 

It offers a good variety of high-quality channels on different platforms. 

With PlayStation Vue, you can access channels such as, 

  • ESPN 2
  • ESPN
  • CNN
  • CNBC
  • Cartoon Network
  • Bravo
  • Animal Planet
  • AMC

As for the pricing, users usually have to pay, 

  1. $44.99 per month for the Access package
  2. $49.99 per month for the Core package
  3. $59.99 per month for the Elite package
  4. $79.99 per month for the Ultra package

Of course, you want to hear about the free trial as well. 

PlayStation offers users a 5-day free trial. 

Hence, you should check out the service first before you try it.

  • Unfortunately, ESPN along with many other streaming services are now using location features on phones and tablets to identify physical location of the user. This info is sent to the content provider prior to a VPN signal, thus, making the use of a VPN unworkable in many situations. 

    • Hi there Jim.
      Thanks for the comment.
      There are GEO-spoofing apps on Android that can take care of that problem.
      Get Googling.
