How a VPN makes it easier to watch sports streams

A VPN stands for virtual private network. When you use one, you’re able to encrypt your traffic and browse with a different IP address.

It makes unsecure connections instantly safer–so you can stream your favorite sports wherever you are.

Catch El Clásico and other La Liga games with a VPN

There are lots of places to stream La Liga matches live online, but some sites may be better than others. 

Here’s ExpressVPN’s simple guide to getting around that with a VPN.

Stream La Liga games on beIN SPORTS (USA)

If you prefer a North American approach to Spanish “soccer”, beIN SPORTS is the broadcaster for you.  Lucky for you, watching on beIN is pretty easy when you have a VPN.

Here’s how to stream:

  1. Connect to one of 20 U.S. ExpressVPN servers.
  2. Sign in at www.beinsports.com. (A subscription may be required.)
  3. Get ready for kick-off!

Watch Real Madrid vs. Barcelona in La Liga live on Sky Sports (UK)

For football fans in the UK, Sky Sports is your gateway to enjoying the La Liga action.

Here’s how to stream Sky Sports’ Liga broadcasts with a VPN:

  1. Connect to a UK ExpressVPN server.
  2. Sign in at www.skysports.com/watch. (You’ll need a Sky Sports subscription or NowTV pass.)
  3. Start watching!

When are the best times to see La Liga games live?

Spanish football fans like a late kick-off. Some of the biggest televised matches start at 9.05pm Central European Time (CET) and don’t finish until 11pm.

But the whole weekend is good for watching La Liga. Typical kick-off times are:

  • Saturdays at 11am, 3pm, 5.15pm, 7.30pm, and 9.05pm
  • Sundays at 11am, 3pm, 5.15pm, and 7.30pm
  • Weeknights at various times from 7pm to 9pm (all times are CET)

Check the listings on your preferred sports service to find live match times.

Of course, you’ll only find games during the football season. The 2016/17 La Liga season started on August 19, 2016 and ends on May 21, 2017.

Will Barcelona win a three-peat?

Barcelona have been on a roll, winning the last two domestic titles and dominating the competition in European clashes. With Luis Suarez claiming the top-scorers crown last season after a 40-goal tally, Barca is yet again a side to be reckoned with.

Can league leaders Real Madrid end Barca’s streak on the throne? One thing’s for sure, the world’s top football league will continue to dazzle and delight. So tune in with a VPN to catch every sensational goal and euphoric win!

    1. Hi David,

      ExpressVPN does not block any sports streams but instead helps you watch it without throttling or blackouts.

      Just connect to a server corresponding to the broadcast country, and you’ll be set to access the stream!

    1. Hi Santhosh,

      Some of these broadcasters require a subscription. You can then use a separate ExpressVPN subscription to watch La Liga (and any football league/sporting event) from anywhere in the world, in HD quality too 🙂

  1. Hello
    I am interested in watching soccer online. You show the leagues I’m interested in. As a subscriber if I can not watch a game live do I have an option to watch a game at a later time?
    And what is your monthly fee?
    Thanks
    Jake

      ExpressVPN does not record or replay games. But by using ExpressVPN, you can access many of these game broadcasters, who show highlights and replays. That way, you’ll never miss a match 🙂
