Networks that Stream Bundesliga Matches Live

Watching Bundesliga matches in the United States can be a bit of a challenge particularly as it’s only aired by Fox Sports 1&2, with a couple of games broadcast by ESPN. However, Fox Sports broadcasts games from the entire season along with highlights and live commentary.

Watch Bundesliga Matches Live Without Cable

Cable is no longer considered convenient by the vast majority of young people. So, obviously, Bundesliga fans don’t want to be stuck at home during the day because that’s when the majority of the league’s games are broadcast live. Fortunately, both Sling TV and DIRECTV NOW broadcast Fox Sports 1&2 in addition to ESPN live via their apps for iOS and Android devices. Also, because both services don’t require a long-term commitment Bundesliga fans can opt to only renew their subscription through out the soccer season.

The prices of both Sling TV and DIRECTV NOW vary on the package you choose. Though generally speaking Sling TV is cheaper starting at $20 a month and DIRECTV NOW starts at $35.

Official Network Streaming Apps for Bundesliga Matches

The Bundesliga does not yet have an official app. Though we did come across a few third-party apps for iOS and Android devices, but those merely rely on your cable subscription. Even then we didn’t find any that worked in the US except for the Fox Sports’ Go app which requires logging-in with your cable credentials.

Free yet Illegal Bundesliga Streams

We did come across many websites that offer free streaming. However, we can safely say that they were all illegal for use in the United States as they breach international copyright law an offense that attracts severe financial penalties. It is for this reason that we strongly advise that you use the legal methods of live streaming Bundesliga as mentioned above.
