Can I watch a Liverpool v Shrewsbury Town FA Cup live stream in the UK?

Having wrestled the rights away from BT Sports, ITV now share live broadcast duties with the BBC for FA Cup matches in the UK. The great news is that eight Third Round ties will be shown live on free-to-air TV, but the bad news for anyone looking to watch Liverpool v Shrewsbury is that this game has not been selected by either network to be televised live. 

That means you won't be able to watch the action from Anfield unfold as it happens on TV in the UK... unless you already subscribe to an overseas streaming service that is showing the game, such as ESPN Plus. Make sure you use a VPN (opens in new tab), as described above, if you're a US citizen trying to access Liverpool vs Shrewsbury Town while in the UK.
