Watching Soccer With FuboTV

If you are living in America and want to watch soccer online then FuboTV is the first site you should try.  They have all the channels you need to watch every league on the globe.  

FuboTV's Networks like beIN have 11 channels devoted to soccer and give extensive coverage of La Liga, Premier League, Bundesliga, Champions League, MLS, Liga MX, and international tournaments.

You also get some other channels dedicated completely to all things football: Fox Soccer Plus, GOLTV English, Chelsea TV.

FuboTV also has a package called Fubo Latino for $18 per month.  This will give you a great selection of spanish futbol channels like GolTV, TyC Sports (Argentina), Fox Deportes, Univision, Univision tDN, Galavision, and Unimas.  It also comes with the beIN network as well for extensive European League coverage.

Watching Soccer on SlingTV

Another great streaming service to consider for soccer is SlingTV.  Sling is very customize-able with over 40 different add on packages and many international channels to choose from.

Especially if you are living away from your home country, Sling's international packages can bring a nation's TV networks to you.

For example, if you only wanted to watch Spain TV channels you have the option to add a $5 Espana package with channels like tVE, SupereNe, Antena3, A3Cine.  Other add ons include Carribean, Central American, French, Chinese, Hindi, or Mexican channels to name a few.

Streaming Soccer with DirecTV Now

At the moment, DirecTV Now only has general coverage of soccer.  You'll get channels like FS1, FS2, ESPN, NBC, NBCSN, CBS Sports, the Olympic channel and Univision tDN.  The most basic package is $35 and includes ESPN, FS1, and NBC.  However to get FS2 you will need to upgrade to a $60 package.

Where DirecTV Now really excels is its business, news, and entertainment lineup; which has over 100 channels.  However for soccer it is not nearly as great as FuboTV or Sling TV.
