How to watch the 2018 World Cup in Russia using a VPN
If you are abroad, you will soon realize that you cannot access part of the content of Mitele.es, since the World Cup matches are restricted with a geolocator due to a broadcasting rights issue.
The solution to this small inconvenience are the famous VPN connections, which will allow you to cheat and make the platform believe that you are really connecting from Spain. To do this, you only need to choose a Spanish server.
It is very easy to install a VPN on your smartphone or tablet Manzana. Simply download the corresponding application from the App Store and create, if necessary, your own account. Remember that some VPNs are paid and will need your bank details.
From Macworld Spain, we especially recommend NordVPN, although there are equally good free options such as TunnelBear. Discover what other similar services are on the market in our article on best VPN for iPhone or iPad.
How to watch the 2018 World Cup in Russia from your iPhone or iPad
The trick that we will detail below will be useful to those who are abroad and, therefore, do not have access to any Mediaset channel from their television, but who still want to be able to watch it on TV with Spanish commentators.
If this is your case, you will need to have the Mitele.es application downloaded to your iPhone or iPad, as well as the VPN connection of your choice. At the same time, you should have access to a TV with an HDMI port and a Lightning Digital to AV adapter.
On the one hand, you should connect one end of the HDMI cable to the adapter and the other to an HDMI output of your TV. On the other hand, you should connect the adapter to the Lightning port of your iPhone or iPad, which we recommend is connected to the power.
If you do not have access to a TV with HDMI or an adapter of these characteristics, do not worry. In this other article we explain other forms of power connect device to TV and so enjoy any game with a big screen.
