Leagues: Bundesliga

Watch Bayern Munich vs. Hamburg live stream from 2pm ET (US only)


Today’s Bundesliga 2015/16 season opener between Bayern Munich and Hamburg SV will be shown live on US television and Internet.

And, luckily for soccer fans (and, as we believe, is a direct result of Bundesliga fans getting up in arms about FOX’s original less than satisfactory programming plans), FOX Sports has decided to make the game available on YouTube for anyone in the United States whether you have a subscription with FOX Sports or not. It’s a small victory for cord cutters, but a big one for fans of the Bundesliga.

You’ll be able to watch the live stream of the game via the video below.

While today’s YouTube stream is a treat, this will be the first and last time FOX Sports will broadcast games for free. But FOX Soccer 2GO, FOX’s streaming product, is offering a free 7-day trial so you can watch every single Bundesliga game during the next week.

    I watched the youtube channel after the EPL game, I wanted to compare and contrast. The only real surprise for me was just how bad the in-game commentating was. I can’t remember the british guy’s name but I know that when I hear his grating harsh voice, I switch streams to the german channel lol; I really dislike that guy and his inane commentary. The german co-commentator was really really bad. Germany has literally millions of people who speak fluent articulate english AND who know and love soccer, they couldn’t find one of them to take the job?

    The Fox stuff was as poor as I expected, I don’t think even adding Ian can save it. He didn’t really add anything, just sort of played host to the three guys who shouldn’t be sitting there. The whole thing looked like it was thrown together quickly at the last moment, not even close to as decent as some of the women’s world cup coverage was. The segment with the Bundesliga players advertising the league was really weird, made them sound and look awkward, ugh.

    There is simply no comparison with the quality of the NBCSN team from earlier in the day, even though they had less time today. And even though I’m not really Arlo’s biggest fan, he is absolutely lightyears better than the guy doing the game commentary for Fox. The soccer itself was fun enough, some great goals and a few saves, Bayern certainly put on a much better show than Manchester United. I try to watch Bundesliga streams when I can, there are plenty of extremely watchable teams. But I’ll stick to the foreign streams and skip Fox.

    Although I doubt Fox will be stealing away any NBCSN EPL fans, I just wonder what the new casual fans who tune in will think. Will they know how crappy it is compared to what it could and should be, or will they think its just normal? I never watched Gol streams, their commentary was usually terrible, I’d rather listen to the german and see what I can pick up lol. Is Fox better than Gol?

    Good luck Fox on selling this uncompetitive joke league to Americans. No wonder they were desperate to win the EPL back. Unless you are a German fetishist and love everything German, this is a pointless league. Neutrals will never get into a league that is like Harlem Globetrotters vs the Washington Generals every week.

      I didn’t know Bayern had to play every team each weekend?

      One could have said the same thing about Serie A (Juventus has opened a gap between itself and the rest) and Ligue 1 (PSG has way too much Qatar money to buy any player it wants.)

      Until further notice, the Bundesliga is a one-horse race with Bayern Munich running away with the title by the end of November.

        The difference between Italian football and German football is the only reason Juve ran away with the league was because the other big Italian teams were in transition. Bayern dominate because they had a recruitment policy of buying the best players off their rival teams to remove competition. There form of dominance is worst because they are also in another league financially too.
