How to stream soccer to your TV

Here is how to stream soccer to your TV, finally summarized in the modern era.

The past 12 months have seen dramatic changes in the way that we watch soccer games in the United States. With the launch of NBC Sports Gold, B/R Live and ESPN+ — just to name a few — the number of games that are only available via streaming has skyrocketed.

With all of the changes and options available via streaming services, we can still watch these great games on our TV set even if the matches are only being streamed.

But how? We explain in the video below with step-by-step instructions.

    I haven’t had many issues with ESPN+ either.

    One thing that does not seem to be supported on the streaming services is SAP. Many La Liga games are on the BeIN Spanish channel, and while no commentary or language I don’t speak is better than someone that just drones with zero enthusiasm, there are still some decent announcers on the world feeds. It seems that SAP is supposed on BeIn connect on the extra channels, but some of us call that BeIn disconnect for a reason.

    As far as I know, there is no SAP for Spanish speakers on these services either… say a UEFA CL game on B/R Live that is not on Univision. Would be nice for all to have options.

    Nice video, BUT it is not true at all you will forget you are watching streaming. The quality is NOT as good as a true cable or satellite signal. You will definitely tell the difference. Streaming is an inferior signal, period.

      Your streaming quality is totally dependent on how fast your internet service is and the hardware you use (modem, router, and player).

        Not the case for live sports. Streaming to my TV for the 1st time via ESPN+ for Serie A (Fire Stick) and the picture is clear, but there is greater motion blur and the players seem to skip at times (not sure for the technical term). Think it has to do with the refresh rates used by the service.

        This is not accurate. I have an excellent internet modem and fast speed. I have learned you are at the mercy of how the internet platform you are using wants to act that day. MLB.TV buffers a lot. I turn on games and it can be in the 4th inning on the TV but in the 5th inning in real time. There can be 1 to 2 minute delays with internet streaming compared to actually watching via satellite or cable feed. When you get alerts on your cell phone before the play actually happens on your internet feed, it shows that true live TV can’t be topped.

          To be fair, even live TV is not live. There’s usually anywhere from a 7 second to 20 second delay. Sometimes for games we’re watching, it can even be up to a minute (we’ve seen this when FOX has tried to squeeze too many commercials in before a game starts, and then broadcasts the game “live” even though they’re a minute or more behind).

            Thank you for these details, I’ve wondered endlessly how networks broadcasts work. So much change

        I have never had any issues using ESPN+ on my Roku 4K or my Chromecast 4k. I have also never have issues with it is probably the best streaming service.

      It’s upsetting that games are being put behind the streaming pay-wall but that doesn’t mean streaming is inferior these days. It’s come a long way. Cable/sat tv resolution has not improved in nearly 15 yrs for 98% of the channels. The bar is set so low by cable/sat (720p or 1080i resolution) that streaming is equal if not superior these days with a decent internet speed. I’ve streamed games on my iPhone and casted them onto my 150” 4K Projector screen and they’ve looked better than the Directv broadcast!

    Please do not send anything about this thing you call football here, My game is the real Football,…the one invented by the Brits, and is played all over the World. This game here you can call it anything you want but to me that’s not Football. I imagine you speak English right?,…what the hell is soccer!, ..You just like the name FOOTBALL,..WELL IT’S PLAY WITH THE FEET, NOT WITH THHANDS AND JUST PUSHING AND PUSHING LIKE IDIOTS. I came here fifty yrs ago,..went once in L A to watch a ” football game, the Rams vs Cow Boys, my God, what a bored, I left 15 mins after the game started. There is nothing to it, not beauty, not fines, nothing to me that justified the screaming and of all those Idiots there. It’s just the media with all that make this game interested to this idiots. The real Football in the other hand has beauty, spectacular plays, etc, etc….I have American born friends that have gone once to a World Football match and get hook to it and love it. Just look at the crowds in Seattle, Portland, Atlanta and tell me what do you see in the crowds, nothing but American young people. Ok, thank you for reading…bue.
