France’s premier soccer league, Ligue 1 (officially named Ligue 1 Uber Eats), is underway and continues into May. In the USA, beIN Sports has exclusive television rights to Ligue 1 matches through the end of the 2023/24 season. Read on, and I’ll explain how you can get beIN Sports and watch Ligue 1 for French soccer fans living in the US.
Most Affordable Way to Stream Ligue 1 Live: Subscribe to Sling TV’s World Sports Package. It’s only $10 per month,, and they still provide a 1-week free trial. This will provide you with beIN Sports and beIN Sports Connect, allowing you to watch through the app.
Watch Ligue 1 on beIN Sports Connect
Once you subscribe to one of the services above Sling TV, FuboTV, or Vidgo, you can watch Ligue 1 live and on-demand through the beIN Sports Connect app on your streaming device. You just download the app to your device, open it, and prompted for a TV provider, use your username and password from one of the streaming services you chose. Bein Sports Connect is supported on iOS, Android, and Roku. Below are the steps I used to set up beIN Sports connect on Roku, but the steps are similar for other devices.
- Sign up for a streaming service with beIN Sports Connect- Sling TV (free trial) FuboTV (1-week free trial) or Vidgo (sign up)
- Go the channel store or app store on your device. On Roku, it’s called the “Channel Store.”
- Search for the beIN Sports Connect app, add it to your device, and then open it.
- In the app, select “Sign in” from the apps home screen
- Your Roku device will then show you an activation code and a URL.
- Using a computer or mobile web browser, go to https://www.beinsports.com/bundles/beinwebauth/webauth/index.html, chooce the streaming service you use and enter the code.
- You will then be asked for a TV provider and a username/password. I’m entering the username and password.
- Once you sign in, your TV screen will refresh. You should now have access to all the Ligue 1 matches through the beIN Sports Connect app.

I wanted to provide a bit more detail on the 3 streaming services that carry beIN Sports. Below you will find more detail on each of the streaming services where you can watch Ligue 1 matches.
Sling TV is easily the most affordable option for beIN sports. Sling TV offers live beIN Sports, beIN Sports La Liga, and beIN Sports Connect in their $10 per month World Sports package.

FuboTV originally started as a streaming service catered to soccer fans before expanding their channel roster to compete with the top live streaming service. However, they haven’t forgotten their roots and still carry beIN Sports, beIN Sports en Español, beIN Sports La Liga, and beIN Sports Connect in their starter package for $64.99 per month, but offer a 1-week free trial for you to try. The starter package includes:
- Live channels like AMC, A&E, USA, and more

- a cloud DVR
FuboTV supports Android smartphones and tablets, iOS devices, Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Chromecast, and more. For full detail on what FuboTV has to offer, check out our guide to FuboTV.
Also, Spanish Speakers may want to look into fubo Latino quarterly, as it offers beIN Sports, beIN Sports en Español at a significant discount to the standard package.
Vidgo is a newer Streaming service that offers fairly competitive pricing over other live streaming services. The only catch is they do not currently offer a DVR. Hopefully, that will change in the future.
beIN Sports in English is available as a part of their Core package along with over 60 other channels. New customers can sign up for the Core Plan for $55 per month. (They offer discounted promo pricing for new customers.) Vidgo doesn’t force you into a contract so you can cancel any time.
Vidgo is available on Android, iOS, Roku, Apple TV, Fire TV. You can also stream the service on up to 3 devices at the same time. We have the full details in our guide to Vidgo’s live streaming service.
