  1. Hi,

    What’s the best way to watch Champions League games free? I’m interested in getting your service but don’t want to pay extra for games.

    1. Hi Will,

      BT Sport is showing some of the games without requiring a subscription. Other ways to watch include the free trials on Fubo TV and Sling TV. However, you will need to input valid U.S. credit card details to use the free trial.

  2. Hi,
    Living in Asia so all champion league games are around 3am – do you have re-play service in your program, that way I can watch with my morning coffee…

  3. I am Telling You, It’s Barcelona’s Year. Fear the MSN. Visca el barca 😉 We will make history again by at least retaining the CL if not winning the treble back-to-back. Game’s ON!
