How to Watch the Champions League in the UK

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.

DAZN Canada and NBC Sport.

The catch?

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.

What’s Needed to Watch the Champions League in the UK Online

Two things.

  1. Make DAZN and NBC think you are either in Canada (for DAZN) or in the US (for NBC).
  2. Create an account for either of the platforms, which will require a card issued in either of the two countries mentioned.

That might sound hard...but it’s actually super simple and will save you a ton in the long-term.

How to Make DAZN and NBC Think You Are in the Right Region

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.

The issue?

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.

  1. Simply create an account.
  2. Download the app.
  3. Connect to either a DAZN or CBS server.

...But now you need an account.

Creating an Account to Watch the Champions League in the UK

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.

Changing the Region of Your App Store on Apple Devices

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.

Changing the Region of Your App Store on Android Devices

  1. On Android devices, first, connect to the right VPN server.
  2. Next, open up your Play Store, and click on the 3-bars on the top-left of the screen.
  3. Click on Account, followed by selecting to switch the region of your app store.
  4. Update your payment information.
  5. Go back to your Account, and confirm the changing of your region.
  6. Download either the DAZN or CBS app.
  7. Sign up for an account on your phone.

Can You Watch the Champions League in the UK on TV?

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:

  1. Connect your laptop to a TV via an HDMI cable. 
  2. Get an Amazon Fire TV Stick as it supports VPN services.

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:

  • In your web browser, go to your current Amazon account.
  • Press on Accounts & Lists, followed by Manage Your Account and Content.
  • Change your region to be either in the US or Canada.
  • Go to your Amazon Fire TV device and press on Settings and then My Account.
  • Deregister and sign back into your Amazon account.
  • Download either DAZN or CBS.

That’s How to Watch the Champions League in the UK 

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.
