There are many ways to watch the Champions League in the UK. Some are super expensive methods, some more affordable methods, and then there are those free un-safe methods that can be risky nor that offer the comfort of smooth playback in HD.
In this guide, we are going to share the best way to watch the Champions League in the UK. It will offer you the highest quality stream possible at the most effective price.
There are two services that allow you to do this.
That neither of these platforms are actually available in the UK.
...Well, at least until you apply the 2 steps we share in this guide.
That might sound hard...but it’s actually super simple and will save you a ton in the long-term.
There’s only one way to do it if you plan to stay in the UK.
It’s by going to either the US or Canada, virtually.
Something you will need a VPN for.
Never heard of VPN services?
They allow you to change your location virtually, thus on paper, allowing you to access both DAZN and NBC.
That most VPN services don’t actually work with entertainment platforms because platforms like DAZN and NBC need to make efforts against VPN services.
As if they don’t, they can get in trouble for not making efforts.
That’s because both DAZN and NBC both only have rights to show the content they show, in their own region.
And that’s where PrivateVPN comes in as a service with a focus on entertainment and making sure that services like DAZN work.
But that’s something you’ll be able to find out when you sign up for PrivateVPN’s 7-day free trial.
...But now you need an account.
There are a few ways to go about the issue of having to have the right card.
The best and simplest one?
By signing up for either of these platforms directly from your phone.
As both DAZN and CBS have card payment blocks on their website, with these blocks not being present in their app due to the fact that both Apple and Google handle the payments on these platforms.
The only thing you will need to do for this to work? To change the region of your app store.
On Apple devices, first, sign out of your iCloud account.
Next, create a new iCloud account with your settings corresponding to either a Canadian account or to a US account, depending on which platform you are going for.
When you have done that, download either the CBS or DAZN app, and lastly, simply sign up for a subscription from your mobile device via the app, while of course, connected to the right VPN server.
Yes, yes, you can.
...But there’s a catch.
See, most smart TV platforms, whether smart TVs or platforms like Apple TV, Chromecast, or Roku, don’t support VPN services.
...And that’s a big problem.
That’s where these 2 solutions come in:
The first option is the quickest, so if you want to watch the Champions League in the UK on a TV right away, it will allow you to do it right now.
...But getting an Amazon Fire TV Stick is the best option in the long-term.
If you just ordered a Fire TV Stick, sign up your account for either an American or Canadian region, and you will be able to download either of the apps.
...If you already have a Fire TV Stick, here’s how to do change your region:
The very best thing about this guide? It also will allow you to watch the Premier League.
But you’ll find that out when you sign up for a 7-day PrivateVPN trial.
