How can I watch the Winter Olympics live online in Ireland?

I’ll be heading of to Ireland and to Dublin next week and I would really like to watch the Winter Olympics. But, as far as I can see RTE will not broadcast from the Winter Olympics. So, what can I do to be able to watch the Winter games live online?

BBC in the UK will broadcast a whole lot from the WInter Olympics, so if you stay in a hotel which has BBC Two among the channels available, then make sure to take a look at that, because there you will find a whole lot of goodies. If that does not work for you, then you can watch BBC2 in online, but you do need to have a UK IP address for that to work. That can easily be done, and you can read more about getting yourself a UK IP address here. Once you have that, feel free to enjoy and to watch the Winter Olympics.

Where can I watch the match between Ireland and Austria online on March 26th?

On March 26th Ireland will play against Austria in the World Cup qualification. The venue is the Aviva Stadium in Dublin and it will be packed with fans cheering for their heroes to bring three new points to the nation and hopefully bring the team all the way to the World Cup in 2014.

If you want to cheer for the Irish team as well, or maybe for the Austrians, but you do not have the chance to be in Dublin yourself to check out the match, you can still take a look at the match online. The match will be shown RTE2 in Ireland, and that channel can be seen online from all over Ireland. If you stay outside Ireland you will not get to see the match because of a geo-block, making the broadcast only available to those with an IP address in Ireland. But, there are some VPN services available that can easily give you an IP address in Ireand, and one such service is HideMyAss. If you head over to their page, make a 1 month subscription and download their software you should be able to surf the net with an Irish IP address in 5 minutes from now and you can also watch the live shows on RTE online. That means you can not only watch the match on March 26th from Aviva Stadium in Dublin between Ireland and Austria, but you can watch tons of other shows as well.

The program starts at 19.00 local Irish time on RTE2… Enjoy the match, go Ireland and if you have any further comments, just write!
