  • Which subscription to watch football in streaming in 2020 (Ligue 1, Champions League, Europa League…)?


Canal+, beIN Sports, SFR which becomes RMC… watching football in France in streaming, it’s not easy. Which subscription to choose? Which operator should be preferred? Can we have League 1, the Champions League and the Europa League in the same subscription? Our comprehensive guide to SVoD football 2019/2020 will answer all these questions.

After a relatively calm summer, marked by a few international competitions (Women’s World Cup, CAN and Copa America) and a restless but not too restless mercato (spoiler: Antoine Griezmann has signed for Barcelona, Neymar is still at PSG), the 2019/2020 football season has got off to a good start and the winter truce is coming to an end. After a remarkable boxing day in the United Kingdom, the championships are back on track. Ligue 1 makes its return on 10 January 2020, for example, but it won’t be until February to see Paris and Lyon in the Champions League.

Ligue 1, Ligue 2, La Liga, Bundesliga, Serie A, Premier League and, above all, the European Cups… there is always something to watch on television, but you need to have the right channels and the right subscriptions so that you don’t miss out on your favourite team or teams. A little guide to find your way between the offers of beIN Sports, Canal+ and RMC Sport, among other champions of sports rebroadcasting.

League 1 Conforama / Uber Eats

To watch all the matches of the Conforama League 1 (which will become Uber Eats from 2020/2021), or the Talent League for the purists, every week, several solutions are available to you. In fact, while waiting for the big upheaval planned for the start of the new school year in 2020, nothing has changed since last season and the offer is still shared between two broadcasters: beIN Sports and its seven live matches on one side (the others are delayed), Canal+ and its three big posters on the other (one per day from Friday to Sunday).

How much does it cost?

  • I am a TV Operator customer (Orange, SFR, Bouygues, Fransat, Canal, Free) : 15 euros per month, per offer, without commitment and excluding the pack ;
  • I want to use beIN Sports Connect: 15 euros per month, without obligation;
  • I want to subscribe to Canal+: from 19.90 euros per month, no commitment;
  • I want the beIN Sports + Canal+ package: 39.90 euros per month (instead of 49.90 euros), with no commitment ;
  • I want the RMC Sport + Canal+ + beIN Sports package: €38.90 per month (for SFR box-office customers).

Domino’s Ligue 2

League 2 resumed at the end of July and, as in the previous year, Canal+ and beIN Sports share the calendar. For the Qatari channel, we are talking about nine matches per day (including multiplex), plus the delayed match, first broadcast live on Canal+ Sport.

How much does it cost?

  • I am a TV Operator customer (Orange, SFR, Bouygues, Fransat, Canal, Free) : 15 euros per month, per offer, without commitment and excluding the pack ;
  • I want to use beIN Sports Connect: 15 euros per month, without obligation;
  • I want to beIN Sports + Canal+: 39.90 euros per month (instead of 49.90 euros), with no commitment ;
  • I want the RMC Sport + Canal+ + beIN Sports package: €38.90 per month (for SFR box-office customers).

The Champions League

Since last season, SFR has recovered the broadcasting rights for European competitions, which means that beIN Sports and Canal+ no longer offer the Champions League on their channels. To watch the most beautiful European games, you will have to go through RMC Sport and, luckily, you don’t need to be an SFR subscriber to be entitled to it.

How much does it cost?

  • I am an SFR customer (box or mobile): 9 euros per month (instead of 19 euros), with no obligation;
  • I’m not an SFR customer: 19 euros per month, no obligation ;
  • I want the RMC Sport + Canal+ + beIN Sports package: €38.90 per month (for SFR box-office customers).

Europa League

SFR also holds the rights to Ligue Europa. It is therefore the same as for the Champions League, even if some matches should be broadcast on DTT channels, as has been the case in recent seasons.

How much does it cost?

  • I am an SFR customer (box or mobile): 9 euros per month, no obligation;
  • I’m not an SFR customer: 19 euros per month, no obligation ;
  • I want the RMC Sport + Canal+ + beIN Sports package: €38.90 per month (for SFR box-office customers).

The Premier League

It’s the big change of the 2019/2020 season: the Premier League, considered to be the cream of the crop, has returned to Canal+ for the next three seasons. In its system, the encrypted channel promises to broadcast all 380 meetings (some of which will be offered on a deferred basis) and thematic programmes. Bon prince, it has agreed to a co-broadcast with RMC Sport, which will continue to offer English football to its subscribers (in exchange for some Champions League posters? ).

How much does it cost?

  • I am an SFR customer (box or mobile): 9 euros per month, no obligation;
  • I’m not an SFR customer: 19 euros per month, no obligation ;
  • I want to subscribe to Canal+: from 19.90 euros per month, no commitment;
  • I want the RMC Sport + Canal+ + beIN Sports package: €38.90 per month (for SFR box-office customers).

La Liga, Serie A and Bundesliga

Although Cristiano Ronaldo has left La Liga for Serie A, the Spanish league remains a stronghold of European football. To see Lionel Messi et al, go to beIN Sports. The same is true of the Bundesliga and Serie A.

How much does it cost?

  • I am a TV Operator customer (Orange, SFR, Bouygues, Fransat, Canal, Free) : 15 euros per month, per offer, without commitment and excluding the pack ;
  • I want to use beIN Sports Connect: 15 euros per month, without obligation;
  • I want the RMC Sport + Canal+ + beIN Sports package: €38.90 per month (for SFR box-office customers).

Women’s Football

Can we do more complex than men’s football at the TV broadcast level? Women’s football, which has finally gained the popularity it deserves thanks to the World Cup, is complex to watch in France – and don’t expect to see matches from other European divisions.

  • Les Bleues: M6 has the rights and broadcasts the matches of the French women’s team on W9. For 2019-2020, the group is considering switching to M6 to take advantage of the excitement of the World Cup. So it’s free.
  • D1 women’s: the French first division is broadcast by the Canal+ group, which has the rights until 2022-2023.
  • French Cup: the French Cup is broadcast by the France TV group. So it’s free.
  • Champions League: this league that only women win in France is divided into two audiovisual players. In 2019-2020, BeIN has the rights to PSG women’s home games. Canal+ had the rights for Olympique Lyonnais in 2018-2019. Contacted by Numerama, the Lyon press service has not yet come back to us.

The rest of football

In addition to all these competitions, we can also mention :

  • The matches of the French Team: TF1 and U6 ;
  • The League Cup: France Télévisions, Canal+ and Foot+ ;
  • The French Cup: France Télévisions and Eurosport ;
  • The Turkish championship: beIN Sports ;
  • The American championship: beIN Sports ;
  • FA Cup : beIN Sports ;
  • King’s Cup (Spanish Cup): beIN Sports.

Let’s summarize

  • Only the big League 1 posters interest me: I subscribe to Canal+ ;
  • I want to see a maximum of Ligue 1 without paying too much: I subscribe to beIN Sports ;
  • The European jousting matches are the only ones that I consider to be thanks to me: I subscribe to RMC Sport ;
  • I prefer to see Messi and/or Ronaldo every week : I subscribe to beIN Sports ;
  • I love the English championship: I subscribe to RMC Sport or Canal+ ;
  • I don’t want to miss anything: I subscribe to the Canal+ sports pack, including beIN Sports, and to RMC Sport (for a total of about 65 euros) ;
  • I don’t want to miss anything, but I’m an SFR box customer: I subscribe to the 100% football pack for 38.90 euros per month, which includes RMC Sport, beIN Sports and Canal+.
