Where to Stream the Italian Serie A Opening Day Online

There are multiple ways you can get your Serie A fix. The domestic Serie A TIM TV partners are Sky Sport and Mediaset Premium, both available as digital platforms offering live and on-demand replays.

In the US, beIn Sports broadcasts the Serie A on beIn Sports English and Spanish channels, also available to subscribers of FuboTV, Sling TV and DirecTV Now. Additionally, you can tune in Rai Italia America for several matches a week.

How much does beIN SPORTS cost?

There are three ways to subscribe to beIN SPORTS – a monthly plan, a yearly plan or through another streaming service that offers beIN Sports.. If you choose to use another platform, the cost will depend on their individual subscriptions or bundles available. If you choose to subscribe to beIN SPORTS CONNECT, a monthly plan will set you back $19.99 a month, with the yearly plan costing $179.99.

Both the monthly and yearly plan also come with a two-week free trial, meaning you can try before you buy. Just be sure to cancel after your free trial though, or you’ll be automatically rolled onto a recurring plan.

Payment can be made by credit and debit card, with both Visa and Mastercard accepted.

Similarly, beIn Sports, beIn Sports Connect, fuboTV Canada, Rai Italia America as well as Bell TV and Shaw Direct stream the Serie A games in Canada.

In the UK, you can check BT Sport 1, BT Sport 2, BT Sport 3, BT Sport ESPN and BT Sport Extra for your Serie A fix. For live streams, install the BT Sport app.

BT Sport on Sky

Sky TV customers who want to access BT Sport through their Sky box have a couple of options available.

People who already have or switch to BT broadband can add BT Sport to Sky TV for less. Customers who don't have BT broadband can still add BT Sport to Sky, but it costs a little more. The Sky TV only option mentioned above is for a 12-month contract, but there is also a 1-month option with a larger upfront fee. It's only available in SD though.

Sky TV and BT Broadband

Customers who have Sky TV boxes, but who take broadband from BT, can add the BT Sport pack to their viewing card.

It costs £20 a month with no activation charge. It's an extra £6.50 a month for BT Sport in HD, but HD is currently offered free for the first three months.

Customers can sign up via the BT website with their 9-digit Sky viewing card number.

Australian soccer fans can find their Serie A streams through beIn Sports and beIn Sports Connect.

Also, DAZN streams the games in Austria and Germany and Eurosport in select European countries.

Overall, Serie A is broadcast throughout the world, with Serie A Tim TV, bwin and Bet365 being its official international streaming partners.

Serie A TIM TV streams three matches per week live in HD. A single-match pass costs € 1.99 while a three-match pass will set you off € 3.99.

bwin streams six Serie A games a week in Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Romania, Portugal, Greece, Poland, the Netherlands, Belgium, and Cyprus. Although the sports streaming feature is free of charge, you need to have a deposited account. The conditions are similar with Bet365.

As is always the case, international streamers apply blackouts for regions where national broadcasters cover the games.

In case you’ve been looking for free live streams of the Serie A games, your best bet would be to try the 7-day free trial of fuboTV and Sling TV – combined, that’s two weeks of HD streams. Other than that, the gambling providers could be a viable option, but those aren’t entirely free since you need a deposited account (circa $10).
