The popular thought regarding soccer streams is that there are not enough matches out there that can be live-streamed, and definitely not enough platforms to livestream them.
While this used to be true, things are vastly different now. There are more soccer games available for legal streaming than there used to be. And more and more platforms are joining the soccer streaming services.
Listed below are five services with which you can watch your latest soccer streams. Ranking is based on personal experience with each service.
- ESPN +
ESPN + is perhaps the most affordable streaming service on our list. With only $4.99 a month, you get to enjoy your favourite league matches and cup ties. Among the options available for streaming on ESPN+ are the UEFA Nations League, EFL Championship, League One, Danish Superliga, Supercoppa Italians, FA Cup, and much more.
You also get to enjoy ESPN analysis and a high quality stream at affordable prices.
- Fubo TV
Fubo TV is one of the most popular sports streaming services out there. And this so not only because they boast of a wide array of sports, networks, leagues, and competitions, but also because they offer a high quality streaming experience. Among the broadcasts available on Fubo TV are Premier League, La Liga, World Cup, Women’s World Cup, MLS, UEFA Champions League, Europa League, Copa Libertadores, among others.
The major drawbacks to streaming with Fubo TV is the absence of ESPN, and lack of availability in certain locations.
- Sling TV
Sling TV is an online streaming service operated by the DISH company. The service offers numerous channels and networks at the relatively reasonable price of $25 a month. Unlike Fubo, Sling does have ESPN, and a large array of cups and league matches. The platform has also been around for a long time, and has managed to garner an amazing reputation for itself in the soccer streaming world.
- YouTube TV
YouTube TV is fast becoming a reliable go-to service for sport streaming, and soccer streams are not exempted. Its strengths are its high-quality streams, ultra-convenient interface, and a 14-day free trial. What it does not have going for it, however, is the lack of beIN Sports, and non-compatibility with Amazon Fire Stick.
- PlayStation Vue
The PlayStation Vue offers a solid streaming service with a high quality broadcast, but tends to be sometimes unreliable with constant changes in available network rosters. It used to have beIN Sports, which is a great channel to have for soccer streams, but the channel was removed alongside some others, which meant access to certain top-calibre competitions, such as La Liga and Copa Libertadores, was lost.
Other Decent Platforms
You can also find your favourite soccer streams on platforms such as Direct TV Now, which offers a unique and beautiful program guide, B/R Live, belonging to Bleacher Reports and great for Champions League and Europa League streams, NBC Sports Gold, which may be a little bit expensive, and DAZN, a new but promising platform which plans to take the streaming service industry by storm.
