ESPN is a US based global cable and satellite television channel owned by ESPN Inc.. As of February 2015, ESPN is available to approximately 94,396,000 paid television households (81.1% of households with at least one television set) in the United States. But it's not open for all viewers, you will get blocked if you are physically living outside of USA.
To get rid of the annoying message you need to be in the USA and this can be done as you use VPN service. Connecting to a server in America will give you an American IP address, and thus you will no longer be blocked due to the regional reasons. When your VPN service is connected, only the server IP address can be captured while your real IP address and location is completely hide.
Once VPN has assigned you an American IP, you will be able to watch ESPN online from wherever you are in the world. Instead of getting the error message, you will now be able to sign up for the service and streams that you are interested in. You can sign up for the packages you are interested in and watch the action you are looking for online, without any special cable subscription. You can view recent hot sport events such as NFL.
