Since the Ligue 1 is one of the five most popular football league in Europe, there are several channels and broadcasters which live stream the matches, year long. However, since most of these are only available in a few countries, many viewers have trouble finding the right one for them. So, to help you choose which channel you can access, here is a list of all the broadcasters and their operating countries.

Channels Streaming Available in
beIN Sports,TV5 Monde Etats Unis USA Only
BT Sport UK Only
BeIN Sport, DAZN Canada Only
beIN Sports Australia
Sport 1,VGTRK Russia Only
Sony ESPN India Only
FOX Sports Italy
Sport 1 Germany

From outside France

You don’t have to miss out on Ligue 1 fixtures and can stream all live matches no matter the country you are in. The problem is, you can’t stream your home TV coverage if the service is region-blocked in your current location. This is where a VPN comes to the rescue and allows you to virtually transport to your home country.

Use a VPN app to access Ligue 1 action live from anywhere in the world. In short, you can stream BT Sports outside the United Kingdom, beIN Sports outside Canada and the United States, as well as any French online channel abroad. All of that is thanks to a VPN app which will help you change your IP address and convince the streaming service that you reside in France, even if you’re somewhere else, Purevpn noted.

Here's how:

  1. Subscribe and sign up for the PureVPN app.
  2. Install the VPN app on your computer, laptop, tablet, Roku, or smartphone.
  3. Create a new account.
  4. Sign in with your username and password.
  5. Connect to France from the server list.
  6. Log in to Canal+ or your premium streaming service.
  7. Stream all Ligue 1 matches online from any country.
