ITV will be broadcasting the 2013 Community Shield between Manchester United and Wigan Athletic at Wembley Stadium this afternoon. Although streams are limited to UK only address, that can easily be bypass-ed with the help of a couple of quick add-ons. Read on to find out how.
As is tradition, last year’s Premier League champions face the winners of the FA Cup, and with the Latics having been relegated to the Championship last term they will enter this match as huge underdogs – despite Owen Coyle taking the helm over the summer months and making several additions to the squad.
Singapore Starhub users got to wait till 17th August before the Mio Stadium channels come online. But thanks to ITV, you can watch it live on the Internet with the following method below.
First, use Hola Unblocker on either Chrome or Firefox.
It’s an addon that lets you access websites blocked or censored in your country, company or school with the free Hola Unblocker VPN service. ITV is one such service. Alternatively, you could use a UK VPN if you have access to one, but Hola works very well.
Next, head over to iTV page and load up the stream. It’s a pity that they wouldn’t be streaming the rest of the BPL matches though, because live streaming sure beats having to pay S$59.90 to watch the game, or resorting to illegal methods such as the dreambox, or FYHD units for Starhub channels.
Enter the following postal code to bypass the iTV location check: EX4 3RX, and off you go. Enjoy the match!
