Some of the broadcasters listed above require a paid subscription, others are free. If you already have a paid subscription, you can probably watch it in your home country. If you find yourself outside of the region where you have your paid subscription, you can use a VPN to still get access. If you don’t have a subscription, it might be hard to come by one, seeing as a lot of broadcasters require your credit card to verify your country of origin. If you don’t have a subscription and don’t want one, you’re best off using a VPN to gain access to a free Champions League stream.
Watch Manchester City – PSG Abroad
If you have a subscription to one of the broadcasters mentioned above, but you’re currently abroad, you can use a VPN to change your IP address and still get access. If you change your IP address to one from the country where you have your subscription, you can actually go around the geo-block and watch your regular stream. You can also use this same method to get access to free streams, no matter where you are, meaning you can stream the Champions League from anywhere in the world, even for free. Just install a VPN, pick the right server, connect, and you’ll be watching Manchester City vs. PSG in no time.
Watch Manchester City – PSG For Free
Using a VPN to change your IP address can give you access to free Champions League streams. There are two legal free streams that we know of, the Dutch KIJK.nl and the Irish RTÉ 2. KIJK has Dutch commentary and RTÉ has English commentary, but RTÉ might be harder to access. We could only get it to work with specific servers of a specific VPN: CyberGhost. KIJK seemed to work with all the VPNs from our top 5, so if you don’t mind the occasional Dutch commentary, KIJK might be the way to go! To watch Manchester City vs. PSG on either KIJK or RTÉ, check out our quick guide below.
Using a VPN to Watch Champions League (for Free)
First off, you’ll need a VPN. As we’ve said, RTÉ seemed to work with a couple of CyberGhost’s Irish VPN servers, but not all. This means that there are probably some servers with other VPN providers that work just fine, we just had the most success with CyberGhost. KIJK seems to work with almost any VPN, so you could always just go for CyberGhost and if RTÉ doesn’t work, go for KIJK instead. CyberGhost is also a very cheap VPN with a 45-day money-back guarantee, meaning you can watch City – PSG for cheap, or entirely for free by getting your money back after the match. These are the steps to take when wanting to watch Champions League with a VPN:
- Subscribe to a VPN provider. In this case, we advise CyberGhost:
- Very user-friendly
- High quality for a low price
- Torrents and Netflix possible
- Download the VPN.
- Install the VPN.
- Log in to the VPN.
- Select which server you want to connect to. For RTÉ, you might have to try a few Irish servers, for KIJK, use a server in the Netherlands. If you want to watch a stream you already have a subscription to in your home country, pick a server that’s in your home country.
- Connect to the VPN.
- Keep the VPN running in the background.
- Go online and visit the streaming service of your choice. For RTÉ, visit www.rte.ie/player/onnow and click the ‘RTÉ 2’ symbol on the right. For KIJK, go to www.kijk.nl/programmas/uefa-champions-league/MjFizcPiVVn and click on the appropriate match when it starts.
- Enjoy the match!
Tip: test the VPN with your streaming service before the match. Some servers don’t work with some streaming services, so you might have to look for a server that works with your streaming service. To connect to a different server, expand the server list in your VPN provider’s software and select a different server in the same country and reconnect to the stream.
Disclaimer: This article provides tips on how to watch the Champions League from abroad using your favorite streaming service, which you may already have a subscription to. However, each region and streaming service has different rules regarding VPN use, so always make sure you act according to the agreement you may have entered into with the streaming service in question.
