There isn’t much diversity when it comes to the Telecom Egypt Premier League streaming options. You have dmc Sports, the state-owned Nile Sport, and ON Sport airing and streaming the matches domestically.

There are no international broadcasters licensed to air the league’s games outside of Egypt. The good news is On Sport and dmc Sports live streams are available on YouTube from almost anywhere for free.

Although streaming the Egyptian Premier League might not seem much of a problem, there’s a catch – censorship. If you’re in the US, UK, or Europe, you should have no issues streaming the matches live or watching the replays of the Egyptian Premier League on YouTube.

But what if you are in one of the few countries that have banned the platform? Considering that YouTube is currently blocked in China, Iran, and North Korea, chances are some of you Egyptian soccer buffs are completely locked out of your league streams. Bummer.

Not helping is the fact that many other countries have a track record of blocking YouTube. Afghanistan, Armenia, Bangladesh, Brazil, Eritrea, Finland, Germany, Indonesia, Libya, Malaysia, Morocco, Pakistan, Russia, Sudan, South Sudan, Tajikistan, Thailand, Tunisia, Turkey, Turkmenistan, and United Arab Emirates – all these countries have blocked YouTube at some point in the past few years on one or several occasions.

It doesn’t get any better since Internet censorship is at an all-time high in 2019. Russia, for instance, just banned Telegram and a ton of VPNs, and there’s no guarantee YouTube doesn’t get banned again. More so if you look at the political situation in Pakistan, Thailand, Afghanistan, and other countries on the list, where free speech isn’t welcome.

That’s when a VPN saves the day. A Virtual Private Network is a service running VPN servers across the world. It enables you to pretend to be in a different country, digitally speaking. When you connect to a VPN server, you anchor your Internet connection to its location, get an IP address pertinent to that area, and appear as if coming from there.

To stream the Egyptian Premier League from a country that blocks YouTube, you need to connect to a VPN server in any country where YouTube is not banned.

Thankfully, YouTube is available in a lot of places, which means you can connect to a VPN server that’s geographically close to your current location and avoid significant speed loss.

Let’s say you’re in Iran looking to get your daily fix of soccer – connect to a VPN server in Cyprus, Egypt, or Israel, and watch your Egyptian Premier League to your heart’s content.

If you are in China, connect to a VPN server in India or Japan – problem solved.

Let’s not forget a VPN is the most efficient way of protecting your sensitive data from snooping Internet Service Providers, state surveillance agencies, and hackers due to the robust encryption it uses to obfuscate your data. With a VPN encrypting your traffic:

  • Your ISP can’t spy on your online activities or throttle your bandwidth when you stream or play online.
  • You bypass state firewalls and evade mass surveillance.
  • Hackers can’t decipher your information and steal your credit card or PayPal details.
  • You can watch Netflix, buy region-restricted Steam games, access US gaming servers, and more.
  • You can shop online gaining access to geo-restricted deals and discounts.
  1. Subscribe to a VPN service and install its client on your device.
  2. Launch your VPN and connect to a server in the country of your choice.
  3. Clear your browser’s cache and cookies.
  4. Go to YouTube and stream the Egyptian Premier League matches without the annoying restrictions.

​Egypt itself deploys draconian Internet censorship, having banned the OpenVPN protocol altogether. If you’re interested in bypassing your state’s firewall, check out my guide on the Best VPNs to Bypass Firewalls.
