10 Best Free Websites to Watch La Liga in the US
You cannot watch La Liga 2023 matches on official TV channels, or Livestream in your country because of copyright issues. Don’t worry, there are tons of sites and ways to watch that are completely free.
How to Watch La Liga 2023 in the USA: TV Channels
If you’re viewing the La Liga games from the other side of the pond, don’t panic – all games will be available to watch on TV or on subscription services.
Disney-owned ESPN will show La Liga until the conclusion of the 2028/29 campaign, having agreed on an eight-year deal worth $1.4bn ($175m per annum).
Games will be shown in English and Spanish on ESPN+ with a very select number of games expected to be televised too. Even the televised games will be streamed live on ESPN+ too.
♦ beIN SPORTS and beIN SPORTS Español have exclusive television rights for La Liga matches through May 2024.
While beIN SPORTS Español is a Spanish-language network, the programming on that channel is usually slightly different than the English-language beIN SPORTS channel. There will be games shown on beIN SPORTS Español that won’t be shown on beIN SPORTS, and vice-versa. Your best bet is to review our La Liga TV schedule, which is updated throughout the season.
beIN SPORTS, the relatively new sports channel (created in 2012), won the contract to air the Spanish league’s matches here in America in 2012, as the Qatari-based company outbid ESPN, FOX Sports, and GolTV in the process. And in the summer of 2015, beIN SPORTS renewed its agreement to continue broadcasting La Liga for five more seasons in both English-language and Spanish-language through 2019/2020. Surprisingly, given concerns about distribution, LaLiga in August 2019 extended its TV rights agreement with beIN SPORTS for four more years, which will ensure that LaLiga will have been on beIN SPORTS for 13 consecutive years by the time the contract ends in 2024.
On a typical weekend, the Real Madrid and Barcelona games are shown on both beIN SPORTS and beIN SPORTS en Español, while the games featuring Atletico Madrid are almost always televised on beIN SPORTS. Elsewhere, the majority of the games from La Liga each weekend are shown across beIN SPORTS Connect, beIN SPORTS and/or beIN SPORTS en Español.
While La Liga’s coverage is pretty comprehensive on the TV thanks to beIN SPORTS and beIN SPORTS en Español, not everyone has access to those channels. Or other people prefer to watch games online, on the go via mobile, or not subscribe to TV (i.e., a cord cutter).
