To watch the Bundesliga season 2023/24 in the United States, you’ll need access to the broadcasting services that hold the rights to air the games. As of my last update, here’s how to watch Bundesliga season in the U.S.:
1. Check the Broadcast Rights Holder
- The rights to broadcast the Bundesliga in the U.S. may change from season to season. Usually, major sports networks or streaming services acquire these rights. As of the last update, ESPN held the rights to broadcast the Bundesliga in the U.S.
2. ESPN and ESPN+
- ESPN Channels: Some Bundesliga matches may be aired on ESPN’s television channels. These can be accessed through traditional cable or satellite TV providers that include ESPN in their package.
- ESPN+: This is ESPN’s streaming service, which typically airs the bulk of Bundesliga matches. ESPN+ is a subscription-based service, separate from a traditional ESPN cable subscription.
- If you don’t already have access to ESPN channels or ESPN+, you will need to subscribe. You can subscribe to ESPN+ independently without needing a cable TV package.
4. Streaming Services
- If you prefer not to subscribe directly to ESPN+, consider live TV streaming services that include ESPN channels in their package. Services like Hulu + Live TV, Sling TV, YouTube TV, and others often include ESPN in their offerings.
5. ESPN App and Website
- If you have an ESPN+ subscription, you can watch Bundesliga matches through the ESPN app, available on various devices (smartphones, tablets, smart TVs), or on the ESPN website.
6. Additional Options
- Bars and Pubs: Some bars and sports pubs may broadcast Bundesliga games, offering a social environment to enjoy the matches.
- VPN Services: If you’re facing regional restrictions, a VPN can help you access content from different regions. However, ensure that this complies with the terms of service of the broadcasting service.
7. Stay Updated
- Broadcasting rights and platforms can change, so it’s a good idea to check the latest information before the season starts. The official Bundesliga website or ESPN’s website can provide the latest details on how to watch the games in your region.
- Check the match schedules in advance to know when your favorite teams are playing.
- Some streaming services offer free trials, which can be useful if you want to test them out first.
Bundesliga can vary, so it’s always best to check the most current information as the new season approaches.
