How To Stream NCAA College Basketball Online

The 2014 NCAA Basketball season is currently underway. Will Kentucky roll through the rest of the country this season or will the always powerful but recently non-title winning Dukies gonna bring it home this year? How about Wisconsin, Ohio State, Kansas, Maryland or Rutgers? (Ok Rutgers isn’t going to do anything but an alumnus can dream!) So many questions, so much pressure, and so much excitement?

Looking for the best places to stream college basketball and how to use a FlashRouter to watch these games from anywhere? This post has you covered.

So if you are aching to watch your alma mater or hometown heroes rise up the bracket of the Big 12 or the Big East conference, but stuck outside of your home market or country, we may just have some solutions for you for the best college sports streaming services. Plus you may just learn how to unblock your favorite online sports streaming hubs from outside the US at any time. Plus out solution offers more clear streaming video, better WiFi range, plus amazing security/privacy features.

Not only will it benefit you for streaming the best college sports games online from now through March Madness but access Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Instant and anything else from anywhere!

Enough preamble, let’s get down to the games…

Best Sites for Streaming Live College Basketball

WatchESPN – As we usually do, we will start this list with WatchESPN, as it generally tends to be the best option for streaming live sports. If you are looking to stream college basketball, they do not disappoint, especially if you are interested in watching SEC, Big 12, and ACC teams. From Oklahoma to Kansas, UNC to Wichita State, WatchESPN has the largest array of college sports streaming online anywhere.

For an example, check out this list of games that are available within the next couple of days. Sure, you’ll need a cable subscription, so this is by no means a substitute for that, but if you want a good online supplement to your cable package while on the road or to share with family , getting this app is the way to go.

Fox Sports Go – Again, this is one where you’ll need a cable subscription. There’s also the issue that, if you don’t have a VPN (which we’ll explain the necessity of later in this post), you’ll only be able to watch local college basketball games. Still, there are plenty of games to watch, with Fox concentrating mostly on the Pac-12 conference.

Use WatchESPN to stream college basketball

WatchESPN – How to Stream College Basketball

Wiziwig – Less officially, we once again remind you of Wiziwig. We’re always a little hesitant to recommend something like this since sites like this are operating outside conventional bounds and could potentially include malware in the software that you need to download in order to use it.

Then again, free options for those looking to stream college basketball are hard to come by these days. Enter at your own risk. Back to the conventional choices with…

CBS ollege Sports Live –  We saved the best for last with this one. This is sort of in the spirit of NFL Game Pass in that you’re basically paying for a whole season to stream without the added hassle of needing a cable subscription. In that way, College Sports Live is far and away the best option for cord-cutters looking to stream college basketball.

Stream College Basketball Online with a VPN-Ready FlashRouter

FlashRouters

Of course, relying on streaming does have its drawbacks. For example, what if your router isn’t strong enough to handle a consistent live stream? Are you really going to be okay with non-stop stutters in your service and buffering? What if you’re out of the country on business or vacation and your streaming college basketball site of choice has some geographical restrictions?

This is where FlashRouters and our VPN service provider affiliates come in to save the day. Not only does FlashRouters offer the finest routers on the market to ensure that our customers get powerful, consistent performance from their wireless network, we’re aligned with some of the best VPN service providers out there to guarantee that your online safety, privacy, and freedom are protected at all times.

VPN services, as the link above explains in further detail, protect your WiFi network by tunneling all of your online information through encrypted servers and allow you to access any website from anywhere in the world, allowing you to stream college basketball from Korea, Brazil, Germany, or anywhere else you might happen to be.

FlashRouters provide you with the certainty that your network will never underperform by offering top-of-the-line routers flashed superlative replacement firmware like DD-WRT and Tomato. Featuring premium stability, superior performance and exceptional security options, using the Internet without a FlashRouter is like going out into the snow without a coat. Unprotected and asking for it!

FlashRouters and VPNs go hand in hand. If you’re subscribed to any VPN on our official supported provider list, we’ll send you your FlashRouter ready to work with your VPN service, allowing you to enjoy your new router without putting yourself through aggravating VPN-installation processes.

Better yet, hold on to your old router and enjoy our dual-router setup, which allows you to have one dedicated VPN router and one local router for more simple, day-to-day usage.

Best Router for Streaming Sports Video

Want to know which FlashRouters and VPNs are right for you? We recommend you start by looking at our most recent bestsellers list, which features the most popular routers and VPN service providers available on the FlashRouters website.

There’s everything you might need: terrific VPN service providers like PrivateInternetAccess, IPVanish, and CyberGhost, as well as dynamite routers from all price ranges like the excellent economy Linksys E1200 Tomato or the all-mighty Netgear R7000 DD-WRT.

 

We even have a brand new Wireless-AC model that costs half the price of most other Wireless-AC devices (the Netgear AC1450 DD-WRT Router).

Streaming college basketball has never been so easy, and with the right FlashRouter and VPN on your side, you’ll never have to worry about it again. And with the holiday season approaching very soon, a FlashRouter is the perfect last minute gift for any students abroad or military service people looking to stream college basketball.

How To Unblock Hulu Internationally - Best VPN Hulu

Popular Content on Hulu Plus

There’s plenty to celebrate about Hulu Plus (in fact, we’ve previously done it ourselves). For those of us who have cut the cord on our pricey cable package, the streaming service beats Netflix Instant by providing current shows the morning after their original air times.

Hulu Plus Helps Cut the Cord

But there’s more to Hulu Plus than the opportunity to catch last night’s Saturday Night Live, or Brooklyn Nine-Nine, or Community (and hey, they might be on the verge of saving that show from cancellation!). They have a movie selection that includes hundreds of Criterion Collection movies, perfect for helping aspiring film buffs fill in the gaps of their cinema knowledge.

Let’s not forget to mention their backlog of long-finished TV shows that live on in their libraries. Whether ’90s sitcom lovers prefer the erudite charms of Frasier or the silly slapstick of 3rd Rock From the Sun, Hulu Plus has got you covered. They even revived the cult anime series, Sailor Moon, a few months ago. And we haven’t even got to their terrific originals (but we will below).

Put another way, there’s no shortage of material for streaming media fans of all stripes. No matter your taste, Hulu Plus has plenty for you.

How to Watch Hulu Plus Outside of the US

Best VPN Hulu Plus - Unblock Hulu Plus from Outside the US

Best VPN Providers

Unfortunately, as it stands now, Hulu Plus is not available outside of the USA and Japan. But don’t fret, would-be streamers around the world; there are simple ways to avoid that problem. The simplest method for unblocking Hulu and watching Hulu internationally is VPN.

Using a VPN Service to Unblock Hulu

A VPN (Virtual Private Network) service is just what it sounds. It is a subscription-based service that acts as a virtual tunnel that transports all of your information through secure servers across the globe when you sign in.

The first of which is to protect your wireless network and all of your sensitive materials (e-mails, credit card numbers, etc.) with an extra level of high-grade encryption on your device. Ideal for use in WiFi hotspots in public places like cafes, hotels and airports.

The second purpose, for international Hulu Plus fans and travellers, is to allow users to unblock geographically restricted material all over the web. Using a VPN, those secure servers give your device an alternate IP address to your place of choice at a click of a button.

This effectively tricks your computer into thinking that it’s somewhere that it’s not. So if you want your computer to think it’s in America (where you can stream Hulu Plus freely), just log in to your VPN and pick a US-server. You’ll be watching last night’s The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon before you know it.

Top VPNs to Unblock Hulu

Recently, Hulu has attempted to block VPN services over what they claim as “piracy concerns” by blocking known VPN addresses. But vigilant providers that are proactive are constantly cycling addresses staying ahead of the curve.

That is why it is important to choose a provider with a varied amount of servers for when Hulu targets one area or one with a large pool of addresses. Here are a few providers that we have tested without issue for using Hulu. Just about every VPN service on our supported provider list offers US-based IP addresses, but we particularly recommend checking out

It is also ideal to pick a provider that offers fast server that will allow for the fastest HD streaming on your Roku, AppleTV, PS4 or SmartTV wherever you are in the world, whether you are travelling or an US expat, in the military or relocating for work.

How to Unblock Hulu Outside the US on Any Device – Roku Internationally With a FlashRouter

At FlashRouters, we take great routers and enhance them, improve their functionality, speed, and versatility. By flashing every router we have with DD-WRT or Tomato firmware, we make sure every customer of ours receives a dynamic, powerful machine that allows them to extend their wireless range, watch and divide their bandwidth, and even access advanced security options.

As the video above demonstrates, if you want to get the most out of your Hulu Plus streaming experience, as well as your VPN experience, you’re going to need a FlashRouter.

Better yet, users who subscribe to a VPN service on supported provider list can order a router that arrives ready to work with your VPN right out of the box! No futzing around with a tricky VPN installation process on our watch. Hold on to your old router and use our popular dual-router setup, enabling you to switch between your local network and your VPN with ease.

We’d hate to pick favorites to recommend, so you can always head over to our most recent best-sellers list and see if something suits you (or our best and most popular DD-WRT routers of 2014 list).

Oh, what the heck. Here’s a few of our top choices:

Top Original Hulu Plus Shows To Watch

Watch Moone Boy on Hulu Plus

Moone Boy: Only on Hulu Plus

Moone Boy – If you can’t get enough of the lately omnipresent Chris O’Dowd, then Moone Boy is the perfect Hulu Plus original for you. O’Dowd co-stars as the imaginary friend of a lonely kid in 1989 Ireland, and their relationship creates the heart of this warm and witty show.

The Awesomes – Though Hulu Plus offers plenty reruns of Saturday Night Live as well as episodes of Late Night With Seth Meyers the morning after they air, you can still get even more Seth Meyers in your streaming diet. The Awesomes, co-created by Meyers and Mike Shoemaker, follows a group of second-rate superheroes as they work together to stop a supervillain. Unsurprisingly, the show features first-rate voice work from lots of talented comedic actors in Meyers orbit (Bill Hader, Rachel Dratch, Taran Killem, Rashida Jones).

Misfits – When a freak electrical storm hits their town, strange things begin to happen to 5 teenagers and they soon realize they’ve turned into superheroes. Each of them possess a power they didn’t choose or want, a power which reveals each of their deepest, darkest insecurities.

Doozers – If cutting the cord on your cable package seemingly left you without much programming for your child to enjoy, don’t worry: Hulu Plus offers you Doozers. And if you’re worried you’ll have to suffer through an annoying kids show, you should know that Doozers is the long-awaited spin-off from Jim Henson’s beloved Fraggle Rock.

Deadbeat  – Here’s one for the late night cult crowd. Deadbeat, about a stoner who makes his money as a medium for ghosts, is a great showcase for star, Tyler Labine, who some of you might recognize from the underrated Tucker & Dale Vs. Evil.

American Ninja Warrior – If you’re worried that Hulu Plus can’t fill your need for competitive reality shows, here’s American Ninja Warrior to the rescue. Watch everyday folks compete for the chance to win $ 500,0o0 by learning to pull off incredible acrobatic feats.

postheadericon What to Watch on CTV & How to Watch CTV Outside of Canada?

Meet Canada's top channel, CTV, and learn how to watch it outside of Canada

CTV: How to Watch It Outside of Canada

When it comes to online streaming sites, the United States has its fair share of options. We’re the home of Netflix Instant, Hulu Plus, and Amazon Prime, among many others, so it seems fair to say that we have to no call to complain about a lack of streaming material.

But our neighbors to the north have something we don’t have; something we are most certainly envious of, and that something is…

CTV: Canada’s Best Source for Online TV

CTV has been a standby in Canadian households going back a long ways, and they’ve done a more than admirable job adjusting to the changing ways in which we get our television. Since being one of the first Canadian broadcast networks, CTV has since modernized to become one of the cornerstone of Canadian television content. There are…

CTV’s American Favorites

That’s right. Late night shows on CTV include

  • Late Night Talk Shows: The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon Late Night with Seth Meyers, Conan, and The Daily Show,
  • Daytime Talk Shows: Bethenny, Live! With Kelly and Michael, and Dr. Phil,
  • Beloved dramas and sitcoms like Orphan Black, Two and a Half Men, and Marvel: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

But that’s not all you can get streaming on CTV.

CTV’s Popular Web Exclusives

CTV web exclusive Guidestones.

Guidestones: A CTV Online Exclusive

CTV users have access to web exclusives. Lots of them.

From the thrilling espionage-fueled charge of Guidestones, to the additional world-building of Arrow: Blood Rush, CTV: Extend gives TV fans the opportunity to get even more out of their favorite shows by loading them up with all the extras they can consume.

Watch CTV Outside of Canada with a VPN

Best VPN Service Providers

FlashRouter-Ready VPNs

But there’s a problem, at least for those outside of Canada: CTV is only available online within Canada.

No worries, though; it’s an easy enough problem to circumvent. All you need to do is subscribe to a VPN.

A VPN service is a subscription-based service designed to protect your online identity and allow you greater online freedom. VPNs accomplish the former by tunneling all of your internet activity through encrypted servers that are set up all over the world, safeguarding them from hackers, identity thieves, and the nosy folks at the NSA.

As for the internet freedom part – and this is the part that really comes in handy for streaming geographically restricted material – VPNs allow you to trick your computer into thinking that you’re somewhere that you’re not. When you log in to your VPN, you’re given the option of choosing your encrypted server. Once you choose the server, you’re assigned a new IP address that comes from the server’s location.

So if you’re in the United States, and you want to watch CTV, all you have to do is log in to your VPN, choose a Canadian server, and voila! Your computer will be have as though it’s in Canada. It’s that simple.

At FlashRouters, we’re affiliated with so many VPNs that we had to go ahead and make an official supported provider list, and any VPN service providers on that list are absolutely recommended. That said, if you’re looking for the best VPNs for Canadian servers, our top recommendations are HideMyAss, IPVanish, and EarthVPN.

Enjoy CTV with a FlashRouter

As the video above explains, the best way to experience CTV, and any streaming media, is with the high-performance power of a FlashRouter on your side.

Our DD-WRT and Tomato routers give users a networking experience they could only dream of. With a FlashRouter on your side, you can access advanced security options, extend your wireless range, and even control how your bandwidth is allocated, which particularly comes in handy when you partake in a lot of streaming media.

But the best part about it is that you can even improve your VPN experience.

Use a FlashRouter in a Two Router Setup - Local & VPN

How To Use a FlashRouter in a Two Router Setup

That photo is an illustration of our popular dual router setup, which helps users improve their VPN usage. All you have to do is hold on to your old router, and now you can use it as a dedicated local router while using your powerful new FlashRouter as your dedicated VPN router.

If you’re subscribed to a VPN on our official supported provider list, we’ll send your FlashRouter ready to work with your VPN subscription right out of the box!

Best Routers for Unnblocking & Watching CTV

We don’t like playing favorites around here, and ordinarily we’d just tell you to take a look at our best DD-WRT routers of 2014 list and pick out whatever seems right for you, but we’ll give you a few recommendations anyway…

If you want a complete overhaul of your network, a full-scale amplification of your current network’s speed and power, then you can’t go wrong with the Asus RT-AC66U Tomato FlashRouter. If that’s a little too intense of a change, than one of our sleek, excellent, economy models, like the Linksys E12oo DD-WRT or the E2500 Tomato may be just what you need.

But if it’s the best of the best you want, the grandaddy of them all, then you go with the Netgear R7000 Nighthawk DD-WRT FlashRouter, or you go home.

Watch DramaFever From Anywhere With A VPN

How to Watch DramaFever From Anywhere

If you’re in the market for television and movies geared towards lovers Korean & Spanish soap operas/drama, you’re in luck. There’s an online video site that’s devoted to free streaming of Korean dramas, feature films, and music videos named DramaFever.

What Is DramaFever?

At the moment, if you’re looking for Korean dramas streaming in the US and Canada, DramaFever is the only game in town. This online video distributor is making a big name for itself by offering premium foreign content in North America, and they’re only getting bigger.

As we said, their purview is mostly limited to Korean dramas and kid shows, though they’ve expanded into Spanish-language programming like telenovelas, and their content is expected to become more multicultural as the company grows. Importing foreign streaming content into the US and Canada is paying off for DramaFever, and they’ve kept themselves accessible by offering free, ad-sponsored content, as well as premium memberships that allows viewers to stream without commercial interruption.

Keep an eye out for this new streaming video site. You might start hearing your friend going on about binge-watching programs like the very popular Running Man on DramaFever anytime.

How to Watch DramaFever From Outside the US

As is the case with most streaming video sites, DramaFever is not available everywhere, and their content is only viewable from an IP address located in North or South America. Good news for those in the US and neighboring countries, and bad news for those trying to watch Substitute Princess, Gu Family Book, Nail Shop Paris, and other Korean programs from everywhere else.

Fortunately, there are simple solutions to this problem, and to simultaneously increase your online security/privacy at a time when it’s most needed, a VPN provider.

A VPN service, or Virtual Private Network service, is a subscription-based service, the primary function of which is to protect your online information and habits. Logging into a VPN means that all of your web activity is tunneled through secure servers that VPN services have set up all over the world.

Doing so keeps hackers, identity thieves, nosy advertisers, even snooping governments at bay. Prevent them from poring over your sensitive e-mails or even accessing your credit card numbers!

That alone makes VPN practically a necessity in today’s world. But a VPN provider can also help you watch DramaFever from anywhere in the world: Asia, Africa, the UK, the Middle East, or Australia.

Since logging into a VPN service means running your activity through a new server set up somewhere you aren’t, you can change your IP address with a VPN, which also allows you to access geographically restricted websites. Want to watch US-only content on DramaFever from the UK or Singapore? Log in to your VPN provider account, pick a US-based IP address, and your computer will behave as though it’s in the US. It’s that simple.

Using a VPN will not grant you access to the ad free subscriber version of DramaFever, which also offers HD quality, streaming on devices like Roku and iPad, and full access to the latest programs. However, switching your IP to a US address will grant you the ability to watch hundreds of television programs, feature length films, and music videos on DramaFever- so that is definitely a bonus.

Popular VPN services for US-based IP addresses include  IPVanish, IVPNPrivateInternetAccess, and Proxy.sh, or compare VPN service features on our official supported provider list.

Watch DramaFever From Outside The USA With A FlashRouter

Aside from pointing you in the direction of top-quality VPNs, FlashRouters can also improve your DramaFever streaming experience. How, you ask? Watch this video and learn:

 

In case you didn’t watch the video: simply put FlashRouters takes already powerful routers and boost their functionality by leaps and bounds. This is accomplished by flashing them with DD-WRT or Tomato firmware.

Even if you are located in the United States and therefore have access to DramaFever, purchasing a FlashRouter will still be beneficial as these replacement firmwares serve to make devices faster, more powerful, and more versatile. Use a FlashRouter to extend wireless range, access advanced security options & protections, or control how your bandwidth is used. Allowing you to prioritize video streaming content is perfect for viewers trying to watch DramaFever or Netflix from outside the US. All these enhancements are courtesy of a little dash of DD-WRT or Tomato firmware.

A FlashRouter will even make VPN usage to be able to watch DramaFever from outside the US much easier. If you subscribe to any VPN on our supported provider list, we can send you a device that works with your VPN account right out of the box!

Gaiam TV: Alternative Streaming Videos

Admittedly, at the end of the day, we’re more likely to default to Netflix Instant and throw on some episode of 30 Rock that we’ve seen hundreds of times, rather than put on a documentary or a Criterion Collection movie or really anything that’s potentially educational.

It’s one of those habits you have to work to change, and changing it may just have gotten a lot easier with the help of Gaiam TV. If you’re eager to expand your mind and boost your mental and bodily health, then Gaiam TV may just be the streaming media service you’re looking for.

While accessing the web through a VPN service, online activity is tunneled through encrypted servers that your VPN has set up all over the world. This makes your sensitive data (e-mails, credit card numbers) untraceable, and keeps it out of the hands of identity thieves, hackers, snooping governments, and other nefarious forces that unfortunately populate the web these days.

One of the other benefits of subscribing to a VPN is that you can access geographically restricted material from whatever country you happen to be in. When you log in to your VPN, you’re allowed to choose which server you want. So if you’re in, say, Australia, and you want to access an American-based service like Gaiam TV, all you have to do is pick an American server and voila! You’ve effectively tricked your computer into believing it’s in the United States.
