It is possible to watch the Team relay and U23 Male (Michael Harris)/Female on Swiss broadcaster SRF but it is geo blocked so you will need to use a VPN provider, so they think you are in Switzerland. See the bottom of the page for details how to obtain a VPN provider. Elite Women and Men will be covered as normal on Redbull TV.
An exciting week of racing is coming up!
Obtaining a VPN Provider.
Its seems most VPN Providers allow month by month plans so you can sign up and then just cancel.
You need to find the deal that states that you can unsubscribe after a month. If you go for the cheaper options, you are potentially signing up for a year’s subscription. Please read all the fine print to ensure you can cancel after a month.
https://secure.vpn4all.com/add-plan-options-50/?m=alt7&c=360 – Choose the basic “1 Month USD9.95 option. No need to add any other options.
Order the one-month option, follow the registration and setup payment.
If you pay with PayPal you can cancel the re-occurring payment in PayPal or just email VPN4ALL directly and ask then to cancel the subscription once the weekend is over.
Once registered you will end up getting an email with a shortcut to download the program on your computer and a product key to active the program once running.
When the program is running on your computer you enter the product key and then select any of the Swiss servers on the list and connect. Once the program states it has connected go back to your browser and you should now be able to watch the live streaming of “SRF Zwei” - - https://www.srf.ch/play/tv/live
A few of us have used this service for a couple of years to watch the U19 and U23 World Cup races in Czech in 2016 & 2017 and just cancelled the subscription after the event.
