How to watch football matches for free on your mobile phone streaming

Now it’s time to get to the heart of the topic and show you what the streaming platforms that broadcast the main European football tournaments and championships are and how they are used.



DAZN is currently the only streaming platform that owns the rights to broadcast the entire Serie A football live and on which you will therefore be able to watch the 10 matches that make up a championship day.

To watch the championship comfortably on your mobile phone, the only thing you will have to do is install the DAZN app , which is available for Android (also on alternative stores ) and iOS/iPadOS .

The DAZN Standard subscription , at the time of writing, has a price of 40.99 euros/month , 34.99 euros/month with annual billing or 359 euros/year . With this plan you will be able to watch DAZN on 1 home Internet network and on a maximum of 2 devices connected to this network at the same time.

Then there is the Plus plan , with a cost of 59.99 euros/month , 49.99 euros/month with annual billing or 539 euros/year , with which you can watch DAZN on 2 Internet networks simultaneously and on 2 devices even if they are connected to different networks.

As for football, both the Standard and Plus subscriptions include: Serie A TIM , Serie BKT , LaLiga EA Sports , FA Cup , Carabao Cup , the best of Liga Portugal Betclic and women’s football . More info here .

Finally, you can choose the DAZN Start subscription which has a price of 14.99 euros/month , 11.99 euros/month with annual billing or 99 euros/year , but which only includes the women’s Serie A football (not the men’s ) and other.

To subscribe to DAZN, simply follow the instructions I have provided in my dedicated guide . If you are looking for information on how to watch DAZN for free , you should know that the platform offers members, even if they do not have an active subscription, the possibility of watching some matches completely free of charge. Generally, these are European football and not big Serie A matches. Only starting from the 2024/2025 season will DAZN have the right to broadcast 5 Serie A matches for free.

To see the free football matches that DAZN makes available to its subscribers, all you have to do is launch the app, then tap on Explore , then in the Free Content section tap on any of the match preview images . Subsequently, press on Register and watch , then type your email and tap on Next , then fill in the fields with your personal information and in the Password field type what will be your password to access DAZN, then press on Next again , finally tap on Continue for free and press on Watch now .

Once registered, to see the titles that DAZN makes available for free, you will simply have to open the app, log in with the email and password chosen during registration and then select the preview image of the match. You can find more information by consulting the guide in which I explain how DAZN works.



To watch football matches in streaming on your smartphone you also have the option of using Sky GO , the app that Sky makes available to anyone with an active subscription, or, alternatively, using NOW , the streaming platform that broadcasts all Sky content.

The Sky Go app is free and involves no additional costs for those who have an active Sky subscription. As for the subscription costs, these depend on which football tournament or championship you want to watch. In fact, if you choose the Sky TV plan (this package can never be excluded from the subscription) + Sky Calcio , which, at the time of writing, costs 30.90 euros/month , except for promos, you will be able to watch: 3 matches on 10 of each Serie A round, all Serie BKT and Serie C matches , plus the best Premier League , Bundesliga and Ligue 1 matches . More info here .

If, however, you are interested in European competitions, you will need the Sky TV + Sky Sport plan , which costs 45 euros/month , except for promos, and includes: 185 of the 203 matches of the Champions League , Europa League and Europa Conference League , together to Formula 1 , MotoGP , tennis , NBA and much more. More info here .

Once your trial is activated, to watch football matches on your mobile you will need to download the Sky Go app, which is available for Android and iOS/iPadOS . After starting the app, type your Sky ID email and password and press Sign in , while if you don’t yet have a Sky ID simply press Sign up , at the top right, and then fill in all the fields with your personal information. In case of difficulty I have a dedicated guide here that explains exactly how to do it.

After logging in, if you have an active Sky subscription you will be able to watch all the content included in your plan. You can find more information in my tutorial dedicated to how to register for Sky Go .

Alternatively, you can download the NOW app , which, as I mentioned, is none other than the streaming platform that broadcasts all Sky content. The NOW app is available for Android and iOS/iPadOS , however, at the time of writing, it does not offer free trial periods of the service.

Specifically, to watch football you will need the NOW Sport subscription plan , which has a starting price of 14.99 euros/month or 9.99 euros/month with annual billing, and gives access to both the contents of the Sky Calcio package that Sky sport, therefore both Serie A and European competitions. More info here .
