Watching the 3pm kick offs is becoming extremely difficult with ISP’s blocking traffic when trying to watch a stream or IPTV service.

By using a VPN, you can get around this annoyance and freely watch without the fear of the dreaded no picture.

Along with this added bonus, the main purpose of using a VPN is to keep your internet activity private and away from your ISP.

Below is an excellent guide showing how you can set up NORDVPN on your Openwrt/LEDE router to protect all devices automatically when connected to your home internet connection.

There is also sometimes a need to direct some devices such as a Smart TV you watch Netflix on away from the VPN as the service will be blocked. To do this you will need to create a Static IP address on the device and also add a rule in /etc/config/network to take care of this and route the device outside of the VPN and use your ISP Gateway. The below link is a good read on what’s needed.
