RMC Sport is the new broadcaster of the Champions League for the 2018-2021 seasons. However, due to a lack of agreement with Orange, Bouygues Telecom or Free, football fans who are not SFR or CanalSat subscribers are obliged to watch matches in streaming. You will be told how not to miss out on C1.

The Champions League is now broadcast on RMC Sport instead of Canal and beIN Sports for the 2018-2021 seasons. The problem is that many football fans who are not SFR subscribers are forced to use streaming to watch the matches. Free, Orange, Bouygues Telecom and Canal+ are still negotiating to broadcast RMC Sport on their boxes (an agreement has been reached for CanalSat).
To begin, of course, you have to subscribe to RMC Sport, we explain how to do so in this file. You have to select the digital offer to be able to watch the channels of the bouquet and therefore the Champions League matches in streaming. Once this step has been completed, you can then log in to your account via the official application or the RMC Sport TV site for viewing on PC, tablet or smartphone. To watch on television, however, you have to be cunning. Here are some solutions:
Go through a Smart TV or a Xiaomi Mi Box or Nvidia Shield
If you have an Android TV and Apple TV compatible device, you can install the RMC Sport application to watch the games with ease. This is the ideal solution, but not everyone has a Smart TV or Box TV on hand.
Casting matches from your smartphone on TV with Google Chromecast
This is another alternative, necessarily less practical than the previous one. It consists in going through the Android RMC Sport (or iOS) application, launching the viewing of a channel on your smartphone and then caster it to your TV via a Google Chromecast type device.
Box Connect TV, efficient but rather expensive
SFR offers this Android 4K box for 69 euros. However, it allows access to Google Play like other products of the genre while providing easier access to Altice-SFR content, including Altice Studio and RMC Sport. Another solution for all those who do not subscribe to SFR.
Go through the RMC Sport application on PS4
RMC Sport and the Champions League from its PS4, it is now possible. Sony and Altice have partnered to offer an RMC Sport application on the PlayStation Store. All you have to do is log in to your account from your console connected to the TV to watch the matches and programs of the package without any problem.
Go through Molotov
Since the beginning of February 2019, RMC Sport has been available on Molotov at 18.99 euros per month. This can be another alternative, rather convenient if you are already used to using this application. This new possibility is not surprising given that Altice-SFR is taking control of Molotov with a majority stake in the capital.
SFR subscribers have a promotion and can take out a subscription for 9 euros per month. The same applies to CanalSat subscribers following an agreement with Altice. But in the case of CanalSat, this is only a tariff for existing customers, new customers will have to pay 19 euros. For all others, who have to use the digital package, the rate is 19 euros per month with no commitment period. It is also possible to pay at once directly for one year against 168 euros, or 14 euros per month. The price to be paid to legally watch all Champions League matches without being an SFR subscriber.
