Wolves vs. Nottingham Forest Livestream: How to Watch English Premier League Soccer From Anywhere


Nottingham Forest travel to Wolves on Saturday, looking to arrest a run of four straight defeats and save the job of manager Steve Cooper.

The Tricky Trees suffered a crushing 5-0 defeat away to Fulham on Wednesday, heaping further pressure on Cooper amid reports that the Forest hierarchy could fire him if they fall to another defeat today.

Hosts Wolves will meanwhile be aiming for a third consecutive win at home in the Premier League after edging Burnley in a 1-0 victory at Molineux on Tuesday. 

Below, we’ll outline the best live TV streaming services for watching all of the action live wherever you are in the world.

Wolverhampton Wanderers vs. Nottingham Forest: When and where?

Wolverhampton Wanderers host Nottingham Forest on Saturday, Dec. 9 at Molineux. Kickoff is set for 3 p.m. GMT (10 a.m. ET, 7 a.m. PT in the US and Canada, and at 2 a.m. AEDT on Sunday, Dec. 10 in Australia)

How to watch the Wolves vs. Nottingham Forest game online from anywhere using a VPN

If you’re unable to view the game locally, you may need a different way to watch — and that’s where a VPN can come in handy. A VPN is also the best way to stop your ISP from throttling your speeds on game day by encrypting your traffic, and it’s a great idea if you want an extra layer of privacy for your devices and log-ins while you’re traveling and connecting to Wi-Fi networks. 

With a VPN, you’re able to virtually change your location on your phone, tablet or laptop to get access to the game. So if your internet provider or mobile carrier sticks you with an IP address that incorrectly shows your location in a blackout zone, a VPN can correct that problem by giving you an IP address in your correct, non-blackout area. Most VPNs, like our Editors’ Choice, ExpressVPN, make it really easy to do this.

Using a VPN to watch or stream sports is legal in any country where VPNs are legal, including the US, UK and Canada, as long as you have a legitimate subscription to the service you’re streaming. You should be sure your VPN is set up correctly to prevent leaks: Even where VPNs are legal, the streaming service may terminate the account of anyone it thinks is circumventing correctly applied blackout restrictions.

Livestream Wolves vs. Nottingham Forest in the US

Sunday’s Wolves-Nottingham Forest match is streaming on Peacock. You’ll need a Peacock Premium or Premium Plus account to catch the game live. 

NBC’s streaming service, Peacock, offers access to all the matches of this season’s Premier League that aren’t shown on cable. You’ll need to have a Peacock Premium or Premium Plus account to stream games live, which costs $6 a month or $60 per year.

Can I livestream the Wolves vs. Nottingham Forest game in the UK?

No broadcaster has the rights to show this game live in the UK, due to the traditional Saturday 3 p.m. kick-off blackout, which prohibits matches being shown in the region at that time in order to protect attendances throughout the English football pyramid.

That also means that if you’re in the UK traveling for pleasure or for work, you’re unlikely to be able to watch the game like you normally would at home, thanks to geo-blocking.

There is one option to get around this, however. By using a VPN, as explained above, you can set your location to a country where the match is being broadcast and go from there.

Quick tips for streaming the Premier League using a VPN 

  • With four variables at play — your ISP, browser, video streaming provider and VPN — your experience and success when streaming EPL matches may vary.
  • If you don’t see your desired location as a default option for ExpressVPN, try using the “search for city or country” option.
  • If you’re having trouble getting the game after you’ve turned on your VPN and set it to the correct viewing area, there are two things you can try for a quick fix. First, log into your streaming service subscription account and make sure the address registered for the account is an address in the correct viewing area. If not, you may need to change the physical address on file with your account. Second, some smart TVs including Roku don’t have VPN apps you can install directly on the device itself. Instead, you’ll have to install the VPN on your router or the mobile hotspot you’re using (like your phone) so that any device on its Wi-Fi network now appears in the correct viewing location.
  • All of the VPN providers we recommend have helpful instructions on their main site for quickly installing the VPN on your router. In some cases with smart TV services, after you install a cable network’s sports app, you’ll be asked to verify a numeric code or click a link sent to your email address on file for your smart TV. This is where having a VPN on your router will also help, since both devices will appear to be in the correct location. 
  • And remember, browsers can often give away a location despite using a VPN, so be sure you’re using a privacy-first browser to log into your services. We normally recommend Brave.
