Watch the Roland Garros Final For Free

In some countries, the Roland Garros final is live-streamed for free, for example in the UK. Even if you are not in the UK you can access this live stream. To do this, you need a VPN to change your IP address to an IP address from the UK. With that IP address, you can then create a free account on the site itv, on which both the men’s and women’s finals will be broadcast live. If you choose a VPN with a money-back guarantee, you can get your money back after the event. This way, no matter where you are, you can watch the finals of Roland Garros for free!

Step-by-step plan: watch Roland Garros for free with a VPN

First of all, you need a VPN with servers in the United Kingdom. Also, it would be nice if you have a VPN with a money-back guarantee, so you can ask for your money back after the weekend and you don’t have to pay anything extra to watch the finals. The VPN we used to test the live stream on itv is ExpressVPN. It works great for this purpose and has a 30-day money-back guarantee. If you are interested in ExpressVPN, click the button below to go to their website.

Visit ExpressVPN

Once you’ve chosen a good VPN and signed up for a (temporary) subscription, you can follow the steps below:

  1. Download the VPN and start it up.
  2. Log in with the account you created if necessary.
  3. Connect to a VPN server in the UK. With ExpressVPN you can do this by pressing the three bullets under “Selected Location” and then search for United Kingdom.
  4. Once the VPN is connected you need to keep it running in the background.
  5. Next, go to the itv website.
  6. Click on “Sign in” at the top right and then on “Sign up now”.
  7. Fill out the form (doesn’t have to be any real data except your email) and search Google for a randomly generated UK zip code.
  8. Then click “Submit.”
  9. In the confirmation email you’ll get, click on the link to complete the sign-up. You now have an itv account. If you did not get an email, click on a live stream on itv and you will get a prompt that you need to verify your email, if you click on that button you will still get the email.
  10. At the time of the final, make sure you have the VPN turned on to a server in the UK and go to the itv website. The women’s final will be broadcast on itv 4, the men’s final on itv 3.
