Access abroad

I know this is a stupid question but I’m in Italy for 6 weeks and want to watch the Lions vs South Africa. Why does Virgin Media block access. I’m paying them £165 per month.

Re: Access abroad

What you're paying for your package has nothing to do with this. As per VM TV Go - "where can I watch"? , the app is only available whilst in the UK

Also, as per https://www.lionsrugby.com/broadcast/ , Sky Sports hold the broadcast rights for the UK only.

Re: Access abroad

Of course I know all this but Italy is not showing it so I’m denied viewing. Very frustrating

If you knew all this, what were you trying to establish by asking here?
