Watching the Spanish La Liga in the UK can be difficult and there aren’t many official sources online available. In this guide I’m going to show you the best way to watch La Liga in the UK live online using the easiest and most cost effective method.
If you’ve searched online to watch La Liga games then you’ll know like me that you’re faced with hundreds of dodgy streams on questionable websites. Even thinking about clicking on one of the links fills you with dread that your computer will be spammed with viruses, porn or even locker malware that can encrypt all the files on your hard drive and hold you to ransom to get them back.
So with this in mind I wanted to find an official stream of La Liga games to watch without viruses and without buffering, pauses or constant interuptions that plague the less than legal online offerings.
So let’s take a look at this tried and tested method to watch La Liga in the UK live online.
How to Watch La Liga in UK Live Online
In the United States there is an online sports streaming website called Fubo.tv, Fubo.tv show all the La Liga matches live online and they also show live matches from other leagues too.
If you try to visit the Fubo.tv website outside the US then the available channel list is restricted and you get access to none of the live football streams. Similar to the example image below:
The good news is there is a service called a VPN that allows you to appear in another location, in this case the United States.
A VPN basically re-routes your internet connection via another country and any of the websites you visit then thinks you’re in that country.
With a VPN you can appear in the US so when you visit Fubo.tv you can watch La Liga in the UK live online and all the other league matches they show too!
Fubo.tv offer a free 24 hour trial and then after that it’s only US$9.99 per month which is roughly £6-7. The great news is you can use your UK or other country credit or debit card and after the free trial you’ll be charged for your first month.
You can of course cancel before the free trial expires and you won’t be charged anything so if you just wanted to watch a big match like Real Madrid vs Barcelona then you could do totally free.
So you’re probably wondering where you can get a VPN and how to use it. Below I’ll take you through this extremely easy process.
Where to get a VPN for La Liga
The original purpose of a VPN is to protect your online privacy and stop others from spying on what you’re doing. One of the privacy features is the ability to appear in another location and this is what we’re interested in when streaming La Liga on Fubo.tv in the UK or anywhere else.
As privacy has become a massive topic in recent years it means there is a massive amount of choice when it comes to VPN services. Some VPN services aren’t fast enough to stream video such as the La Liga matches so it’s important you sign up to the right one.
I’ve tested a range of VPN providers to find out which is the best to watch La Liga in the UK on Fubo.tv and found the following three to be ideal.
A good VPN provider should cost between £4-£7 depending on how long you sign up for.
Once you’ve signed up to one of the providers above read below to find out how to use it to watch La Liga in the UK or elsewhere.
How to use the VPN for La Liga
It’s best to watch on a Windows PC or Mac system but it is possible to watch on mobile devices like Android and iOS.
In this example I’m going to concentrate on Windows PC using IPVanish but the Mac software is identical. If you signed up to one of the other providers then the process is the same too only the layout of the software will look different.
- Sign up to IPVanish.
- Click the VPN Software link on their website.
- Download their Windows software and install.
- Run the software.
- Click Server Selection.
- Click US Media or Gaming.
- The software will now make connection.
IPVanish US Media or Gaming
Once the software has made connection you can visit the Fubo.tv La Liga page.
Here you can sign-up for your free 24 hour trial. You’ll need to enter your payment details in case you want to keep the service after the trial has ended.
Once you’ve signed up and logged into Fubo.tv you’ll be able to watch all of the La Liga matches in the UK or anywhere else in the world.
