I made this page originally to help people looking for a way to watch SVT online from abroad. So far many people have followed my advices, and I am glad that I could help. Now the World Cup 2014 is coming within shortly, and thousands of people will again look for help and advices on how to watch SVT online from outside Sweden.
SVT will broadcast from the World Cup 2014 together with TV4 in Sweden. While SVT is a free state owned channel, TV4 is private and commercial, meaning that you also need to pay extra to watch their live streams online. But, the SVT live streams are available to anyone, the only requirement is that you have an IP address in Sweden. So, to watch the World Cup 2014 on SVT from outside Sweden you will need to make all Internet sites, especially the SVT website (SVTPlay.se) believe that you are located in Sweden. The best, easiest and safest way of doing so is by using the VPN services of HideMyAss.
Click the button beneath the text, visit their website, sign up for their service and download the HideMyAss program to your computer. Run the program and connect to a server in Sweden, and you will at once be able to watch the live streams on both SVT and TV4 from outside Sweden (notice though that TV4 requires that you have a subscription in addition to watch their streams). However, this solution will remove the geographical problem, and make it possible for you to watch the World Cup matches sent online on SVT from wherever you are in the world. And, if you have a TV4 subscription you can watch the matches broadcasted there as well!
If you wonder what matches are played when, you can see different World Cup 2014 schedules here.
