How to watch Euro 2016 on Sling TV with this step-by-step guide


From June 10 to July 10, ESPN will be televising all 51 matches of Euro 2016 live across television to sports fans across the United States.

That’s all well and good if you subscribe to ESPN. But if you don’t or your TV provider doesn’t offer access to WatchESPN, you can watch every single game of the European Championship with Sling TV, the legal streaming alternative where you can watch games on your computer, smartphone, tablet, video game platform, smart TV, Roku, Amazon Fire or connecting your stream to your TV via Google Chromecast.

Sling TV is currently offering a free 7-day trial.

Here’s the step-by-step guide of how to sign up for Sling TV. Sign-up just takes a few minutes.

Step 1: Visit the Sling TV page via this link.

Visit the Sling TV page via this link. Then click on the blue “Watch now 7-days free” button (see screenshot below).

Note: If you live outside the United States, you’ll need to sign up for a free trial with a VPN service in order to log in as a USA user. Once you’ve signed up for a VPN free trial, return to step 1 here.



Step 2: Enter your e-mail address and a password to create a Sling TV account.

After entering your e-mail address and password, click on the blue “Next” button (see screenshot).



Step 3: Choose between the Best of Live TV or Best of Live MultiStream packages

With Sling TV, you have a choice between the “Best of Live TV” package (pictured below on the left) or the “Best of Live TV Multistream” package (pictured below right).

For Euro 2016, where every game is featured on ESPN, you’ll want to click on the button on the left. The Sling Multistream package includes FOX and FOX Sports 1 but doesn’t include ESPN.

For the complete list of channels available, there’ll be a “See more” link underneath the TV station logos.

For Euro 2016, go ahead and click on the left button.



Step 4: Select add-on packages, if you want

Sling TV offers a variety of add-on packages that you can include such as ‘Sports Extra’ that includes beIN SPORTS, while “Best of Spanish TV” includes Univision and UniMas. There are other add-ons too including HBO and other entertainment/news programming.

If you want just ESPN to watch Euro 2016, then skip the add-on packages.



Step 5: Enter your billing information

With the free 7-day trial to Sling TV, your credit card won’t be charged. But you still need to enter your name and payment details in case you decide to continue the Sling TV service past the 7-day free trial (canceling your free trial is easy and can be done online).



Step 6: Don’t forget the age verification check-box

If you’re over 18 years old, click on the black check-box to the right of the blue-button. And then click on the ‘Finish and Submit’ blue button.



Step 7: Download the Sling TV app for your device

If you’ve made it to this step, congratulations. You’re now in the Sling TV free trial. To get the most out of your free trial, download the Sling TV app for your favorite device from   The Sling TV app is available for Mac, Windows, smartphones, tablets, Amazon Fire, Xbox One and several other devices.

After selecting the app, go ahead and follow the installation instructions.



Step 8: Load your Sling TV app

After downloading the Sling TV app, go ahead and load it and you’ll then see a login screen similar to the one shown below. Click on the “Sign-in” button



Step 9: Watch your favorite programming

You’re in! Browse through your favorite channels on Sling TV and enjoy your soccer.



Bonus: Watch streams via WatchESPN

With your free trial to Sling TV, you also can access all of the additional ESPN programming on WatchESPN that isn’t already available on Sling TV.

First, visit and you’ll see the drop-down menu. Select “Sling TV” from the list and then click the red “Continue” button.



Next, enter your e-mail address and password you used to sign up for the free trial to Sling TV and click on the blue “Sign-in” button.



Once you’ve logged in to WatchESPN with your Sling TV credentials, you can then select from a range of programming including the different types of tactical cams that are available for each Euro 2016 game (see screenshot below for examples).

    You blacked out the one main Euro game I wanted to watch.
    I bought sling for the purpose of watching them.
    I bought espn & espn2…the 40.00 package.
    You better not block out the Final Game that’s on this channel Sunday or you will lose a neighborhood of buisness.
    WE cut the cord so we can’t watch it even if this happens again.

    Soon to be a happy customer I hope

    Do you think we can find a way to use this outside of US also? I’m trying to do that from Europe and sling doesn’t appear to work here. Thanks!

      Try a VPN?

        More info about VPNs can be found here – but you’ll need a credit card with a US billing address for it to work with Sling.
