The Final of the Euro 2016 trails only the World Cup Final in terms of significance and global popularity in nation-level soccer. Like the World Cup, it only happens every 4 years, and there’s a reason ESPN shelled out a pretty penny in order to bring every match of the tourney to us. Now, the finals of Euro 2016 is nigh, with Portugal and France facing off. The Euro 2016 Final live stream will take place at 3PM Eastern on Sunday, July 10th, and there are no shortage of ways to watch if you’re a cord-cutter.
Thankfully, you won’t need cable to watch the Euro 2016 Final live stream. Keep reading to learn the best ways to watch Euro 2016 Final online.
See All Of The Euro 2016 Final Live Stream With Sling TV
The game will be broadcast by ESPN, which we normally associate with cable, and therefore contracts, cords and the inability to cancel, but you can watch ESPN, and therefore the Euro 2016 Final Live Stream, without all that crap that made us want to cut the cord in the first place.
Sling TV is a mere $20 a month for their Best of Live TV package, which carries ESPN, ESPN2, AMC, TNT, and over 20 more channels. There’s no contract to sign, you can cancel it any time, and you get a 7-day free trial just for signing up. Even better, they have additional niche packages for things like sports channels and Spanish channels. In particular, Their Best of Spanish TV add-on is just $5 a month and includes ESPN Deportes, thus enabling you to watch the Euro 2016 Final online in Spanish, if that’s your preference.
Probably the best aspect of Sling TV (read more here) is they always seem to have crazy gonzo deals going, several at a time. Like right now, you can get a free Roku 2 for paying in advance 3 months. Or substantial discounts for T-Mobile customers in ways that don’t count against their data plan. If you’re not subscribed to Sling TV, you’re missing out.
PlayStation Vue Lets You Watch Euro 2016 Final Online
Another fine option for watching the Euro 2016 Final live stream is PlayStation Vue. They have three packages (starting at $29.99 a month) and they all carry ESPN: Access, Core, and Elite. Access carries over 50 channels. Core has over 75 channels. And OMG, Elite has over 100 channels! This includes everything from bread-and-butter networks like CNN and MTV, to niche ones like Logo and One World Sports.
We go into more detail here, but the skinny on PlayStation Vue is essentially as follows: PlayStation Vue works on PS3, PS4, iPhone, iPad, Chomecast, and Amazon Fire TV devices. But for the most part PlayStation Vue can NOT be used for viewing live TV on-the-go: the only devices it works on towards that end is iPhone and iPad, and even then, only on a limited scale.
Still, though – if you plan to watch at home, Vue is a solid way to enjoy Euro 2016 Final live streaming without breaking the bank.
Not In The US? We Have Options For You, Too
Britishers from Newcastle to Portsmouth can also watch the Euro 2016 Final stream without having to resort to cable or satellite. In fact, since British rights to Euro 2016 are owned by both BBC and ITV, both BBC iPlayer and the ITV Hub app will have Euro 2016 coverage. If you don’t live in the US or the UK, you can simply sign up for a Virtual Private Network or VPN – Express VPN is the best one – and voila, you’re suddenly, as far as your network is concerned, in the UK by proxy.
