The best football clubs in Europe will battle it out over nine months in the UEFA Champions League, with all the action kicking off on Wednesday, September 15 (AEST). This is The Roar’s guide to live streaming the UEFA Champions League.
How to live stream the Champions League online in Australia
Stan Sport have bought the comprehensive rights to the UEFA Champions League competition, meaning that you can stream live coverage of every single match over the coming months. They will also provide highlights and replay packages in case you can’t make the earlier kick off times.
To access Stan’s coverage, you need to subscribe to Stan itself and then add Stan Sport to your existing subscription.
Stan subscriptions cost either $10 (basic package, one screen at a time), $14 (standard package, three screens) or $19 (premium package, four screens and Ultra HD streaming) per month. The sport add-on costs an additional $10 per month, regardless of which standard Stan subscription you have.
More information and sign up instructions can be found on the Stan website. Stan offers a 30-day free trial to new users, so it’s worth moving quickly.
Once subscribed, you can stream coverage on a range of devices including in a web browser, on your mobile or on your TV (as long as it has the required functionality).
As well as the Champions League, you will have access to the UEFA Europa League and UEFA Europa Conference League, as well as the UEFA Super Cup and select matches from the UEFA Youth League, for the next three seasons.
How to watch the Champions League on TV in Australia
Champions League matches have not been shown on broadcast television in Australia for a number of years. While Stan is owned by Channel Nine, opening up the possibility of matches being broadcast on Channel Nine or 9Gem, no announcement has been made just yet as to whether they will broadcast any matches on television.
However, given most matches take place overnight or very early in the morning, streaming is likely the best way to watch Champions League action anyway.
