    im sure this is 205, but I've been searching here and with Google, and cannot find a way to stream the rally stateside. There has to be an app, right? I'd love to stream live coverage as opposed to highlights, if at all possible. TIA

    AirVPN, connect to a UK server (or your other country of choice).
    Stream Eurosport (with a paid streaming account).

    Knowing how to download a file using Torrents will be helpful coming up.

    And if you're going the torrent route, it's always useful to use a VPN account for that as well.

    Thanks - this is over my head but I will google this and try to figure it out. Should I be able to do this on an iPhone?

    I don't know whether you can get it working or not, but I have gotten AirVPN to work on my Android, but it's far easier to do on a computer. There is also a Eursport player for your device, so it's certainly possible to do. Whether your tech ability can handle it, I don't know.

    I use this same method to watch all the F1 races live, via European coverage.

    There is a bit of a learning curve, yes...

    If you are using a tablet download an application called Mobdro. It streams all sports channels foc.
    Eurosport and nbcsport have 30 minutes of highlights each day.

    +1 on the VPN and PIA specifically. HOLA is not always reliable and it can do naughty stuff with your browsing history. see WIRED article below: https://www.wired.com/2015/07/proxy-services-totally-unsecure-alternatives/


    ++1 on PIA and Eurosport Player Subscription.

    I can't verify here in the US, but I found these two sets of satellite coordinates. Not sure anything about them other than noted as "Dakar"
    NSS 806 (47.5W) 3739L SR7200 8PSK DVBS2
    EUTELSAT (7 E) 11125 V SR7199 8PSK DVBS2
    Farthest I go is 60W :(

    I hope GoNOW will set up the internal thing once more again this year. In general is early for torrents yet but as the days pass they'll probably appear on torrent sites like the fishy one and rfm
