How to live stream Bellator 256: Bader vs Machida online
While VPNs can seem intimidating at first, they actually make it very easy to unblock geo-restricted sites and services. Just follow the steps below to unblock the Bellator live stream from abroad.
Here’s how to watch the Bellator 256 live stream online, from anywhere:
- First, sign up for a suitable VPN. We recommend NordVPN but Surfshark and ExpressVPN are both strong choices too.
- Download and install your VPN’s app, taking care to get the right version as most offer apps for several different operating systems.
- Decide which of the streaming platforms below you’d like to access abroad.
- Connect to a VPN server in the required country. For example, you’ll need an Australian server to unblock Fetch or a US server for DAZN. This will spoof your IP address and trick geo-blocked services into letting you use them abroad.
- Try playing a video on your chosen service. In most cases, it should begin instantly, but if you’re still having trouble, try clearing your browser’s cookies and cache and reloading the page.
This event will be broadcast live, so we strongly recommend making sure your VPN works (with the steps above) well before this event is due to start. This way, if anything doesn’t work as expected, you’ll likely still have time to get help from your VPN’s customer service team, and might not have to miss any of the preliminary fights.
How to watch Bellator 256 on US or Canadian TV
Showtime is the new home of Bellator in the US. This means that fans can stream Bellator 256 live via a number of different sources. For instance, you could sign in with a Hulu, Sling TV, YouTube TV, or fuboTV account, or with your cable provider details, assuming you already get Showtime channels.
The services above are all geo-blocked. As such, you’ll need a VPN to access them abroad. Don’t have one yet? NordVPN easily unblocks CBS and comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee so you can try it risk-free.
Where else can I watch Bellator 256 online?
Having left Sky Sports, Bellator matches will now exclusively be shown on BBC iPlayer. This service is completely free to use, although you will have to create an account first.
BBC iPlayer is geo-restricted, so you’ll have to be in the UK or using a British VPN server to watch anything. Additionally, UK law requires that you have a TV license to stream content as it’s shown on TV (although the BBC iPlayer website occasionally fails to verify this).
