How to get a Bundesliga Opening Day live stream and watch online in the US

ESPN has the rights to the Bundesliga in the US, and the lion's share of games will be aired on its ESPN+ streaming service, though some will also be on the traditional TV channels ESPN, ESPN2 and Spanish-language ESPN Deportes.

ESPN+ is seriously great value at just $5.99 a month . In addition being the US home of the many big soccer soccer matches, ESPN+ also features loads of games from the NBA, NHL, MLB and MLS, plus college sports, tennis, golf, cricket, rugby, Top Rank boxing, UFC and more.

ESPN+ is a streaming subscription service that's considered a complement to existing ESPN content. Think of it as an add-on to the standard ESPN app with live games, exclusive on-demand videos, and access to what was formerly known as ESPN Insider.

Previously, ESPN Insider offered subscribers exclusive written articles for a monthly $5 fee. ESPN decided to add video to the mix and created ESPN+ for a similar price, giving subscribers access to stories, live streaming, and on-demand videos.

For the ultimate value, grab a combined ESPN+, Disney Plus and Hulu bundle for just $12.99 a month, which gets you loads of great entertainment and family-friendly content in addition to all that sports action.

And you don't have to use cable to access ESPN. Over-the-top streaming services let you watch TV over an internet connection and can typically be had for a fraction of the cost of even the most basic cable package.

Sling TV's Orange package includes ESPN and there's a FREE trial period for a limited time only - the regular cost is $30 a month.

How and Where to Watch Bundesliga Opening Day Online in Germany

In Germany, Bundesliga broadcast rights are shared between Sky Deutschland and DAZN. DAZN will show three games every week and costs €11.99 per month (although your first month is free). This service has notoriously strict geo-blocking, however, so most VPNs won’t be able to unblock it.

If you are not in Germany, you can access the channel abroad using a VPN. ExpressVPN comes with a 30-day risk-free money-back guarantee, allowing you to try it and claim a full refund if you’re unsatisfied.

How much does DAZN cost?

DAZN costs $19.99 a month (you can cancel at any time, so if you wanted to sign up to watch just one boxing match or event, you’d only be charged for one month and could watch other fights and programming until your 30 days expire). You can also purchase the service at a discount if you buy a year-long subscription for $99.99. So, for under $20 you can try it out for a month and see if it works for you, or just wait until the platform has something you want to watch and give it a shot then.

DAZN is not a TV channel, so you will have to access it through the DAZN app, or through a browser on your computer. If you have a smart TV that is hooked up to wifi, or connected to the internet with an ethernet cable, you should have no problem downloading the DAZN app. If you don’t have a smart TV, but do have a streaming device, you can get DAZN by adding the app to any of the following streaming devices that you currently use to watch TV and movies:

  • Apple TV
  • Roku
  • Amazon Fire TV
  • Android TV
  • Xbox One on Xbox Series X
  • Playstation 4 or 5

You can also watch DAZN by using the app on your desktop computer, or with your internet browser by visiting DAZN.com.

If you also want BT Broadband, there are a number of viewing options, all of which you can see and sign up for here. There are options to save on its Sport or Big Sport offerings (the latter also bundles NOW's Sky Sports membership).

Contracts for these two packages are available at various price points and run for 24 months, with a £29.99 cost upfront.

Note that BT has also introduced more flexibility to a number of its TV packages, which means you can add certain channel packs (including Netflix, NOW and Amazon Prime) and turn them on and off on a month-by-month basis to fit with your budget.

The BT Sport Pack has four main channels – BT Sport 1, BT Sport 2, BT Sport 3 and BT Sport ESPN, and between them they show all the football mentioned above, plus FA Cup fixtures. BT Sport has also made a number of feature-length documentaries exclusively available to subscribers.
