Soccer Board How to Watch Guide
With more new people coming to the board thought a lil how to guide would be helpful with all the leagues. If im missing anything please post and I will update the OP.

For those who stream a VPN or Hola extension is a must have so you can jump around hoops.

Champions League - TV Foxsports and Sky/ITV for most people on this board. You can stream ITV matches off their website once you change your IP.

EPL- NBC Sports/overflow channels and Sky/BT. NBC Live extra(which is awful but it is what it is). Anyone who uses XMBC there is a NBC Sports EPL add on which actually works better than the live extra app. For it to work if you are living abroad make sure you have a US IP.

La Liga - BeIN Sports and Sky

Bundesliga - GolTV . In the UK usually ESPN or BT. Soon to be Fox in the US

Serie A - BeIN, ESPN UK/ BT, so if you are streaming look for those broadcast. They show lots of matches each week.

Ligue 1 - BeIN in the US, usually ESPN or BT in the UK.

MLS - ESPN/Watch ESPN, Fox, NBC Sports and now Sky

FA Cup- Foxsports in the US, BT/BBC in the UK. For anyone wanting to stream. Change your IP to a UK one and use the BBC iplayer for a HD stream for any match being shown on BBC. Usually 2 a weekend. For example United Arsenal on that monday night will be on bbc. For using UK stream if it ask for a post code using something like SW1A 2AA and if it ask if you have a tv license say yes.

For everyone who is pretty tech savy using something like XBMC is pretty awesome to find any match from anywhere. If anyone needs help I can give some tips. They also added an MLS streaming app. All of this stuff is free. When looking for English streams of non EPL/MLS matches Sky/ESPN UK are the ones to click on if posted somewhere. BeIN is in like 8 different languages

There are also usual streams posted in the soccer subreddit in the match threads or go to the soccer streams subreddit.


I have a thin client type PC dedicated to my tv that I use for Slingbox, WatchESPN, XBMC and other streaming.

DirecTV has extra channels I think in the end of the 500's or 700's that show all other EPL games that aren't on NBCSN or NBC.

re: Soccer Board How to Watch Guide
Should list an example UK postcode in the original post so people don't ask each time it is needed. (SW1A 1AA, SW1A 0AA, or SW1A 2AA)

Also could mention to go to r/soccer, pull open desired match thread, and hope theres a good link there.

Comcast's overflow method is shitty. There's no overflow channel per se, but every game is put on it's own "ON Demand" listing. Which sounds awesome, except if you forget to start the game on time or come into the game late, you are forced to watch the entire pre-match events and everything else as there is no fast forward. Want to watch that replay.. go ahead rewind it, but you'll have to rewatch everything again, b/c there is no fast forward.

You would think for a company that owns the channels the content is broadcast to, they would have a better method.

Also where's the info for those of us who want to watch the A-league? jk

I've had good luck finding Everton Europa League games on Fox Sports this year, and through the app as well. Hope it continues, but I think you can add that to the Champions League section.

Great thread.

I know everyone complains about NBC live extra and the fox sports app but I have literally never had an issue with either of these on my iPad. Always work like a charm.

Maybe it's user error

XMBC is media hub/server

You can get add ons which can let you stream live tv or get access to just about every tv show on earth. Its a great way to catch up on series or watch a new one with out downloading or buying it.

I've had serious problems w/the Fox Sports app and the NBC Live Extra app occasionally crashes when I watch using my iPad, but I don't really think that there's much room for user error on the iPad.
