Free & Paid: 11 Recommended Services for Watching Soccer

Net TV

You want to watch a soccer game, but you often don’t have the time or the distance is too far to go to the venue. In such cases, we recommend watching the game live on TV or via free online streaming. If you stream it online, you can watch it at home or whenever you want. There are many recommended match streaming services. We will also introduce pricing plans.

DAZN

Recommended soccer watching service ranking

There was a time when it was common to watch soccer games on TV. However, in recent years, a service called VOD has appeared. VOD is a service that allows viewers to watch a variety of video content whenever they want to watch it, and it has become very popular in the 2010s. This service has now become mainstream.

Recommended ranking #1: Free service

No. 1 in the recommended ranking is, above all, a free service. On rare occasions, VOD distribution service companies on Yahoo and Youtube offer matches that can be viewed for free. However, from a viewer’s perspective, the disadvantages are that you may not always be able to watch the match you want to see, and that it is not held every week, so it is held irregularly. If you are a hardcore soccer fan, we recommend subscribing to a paid service.

Recommended ranking 2nd place: VOD

VOD is an abbreviation for Video on Demand. Typical examples of VOD are undoubtedly DAZN and Hulu. These services allow viewers to watch matches whenever they want, and they also provide missed broadcasts and rebroadcasts, so they are the paid services that are most in demand. VOD is a service that is familiar to young people because it can be viewed easily on smartphones.

Recommended ranking 3rd place: TV

The TV is an old-fashioned service, and you can watch soccer games mainly via satellite. Although we are entering the era of VOD, there is still demand for TV among middle-aged and older people who cannot keep up with the times. Although there are many disadvantages as it requires purchasing a TV, installing a tuner, and even installing an antenna, it is still a service that is in high demand.

Major soccer leagues broadcast on video streaming services

Next, we will introduce content that is popular among soccer fans. The following content has a large number of subscribers and the level of the matches is quite high, so it is recommended content.

La Liga

La Liga is the world’s top league, where Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo played. The league is based on possession soccer, and although it is inferior to the Premier League in terms of financial strength, it is a league that consistently ranks first in the UEFA rankings for its high quality soccer. Therefore, the quality of the matches is very high, so there are many fans.

Serie A

Serie A is an Italian league, but previously it was a strong European league centered on Juventus, Milan, and Inter. Although it can’t be denied that they are a little inferior now, the strong teams have representative players from each country, and you can see high-quality matches. In recent years, they have advanced to the top of the European Cup and are starting to gain momentum again.

Premier League

The Premier League is the most financially powerful league in the world. Therefore, the league is characterized by having representative players from each country, from the top teams to the bottom teams, and the league as a whole is very evenly matched, making it a fun league where you never know who will win. Also, since it is a league with a large number of matches, it is recommended for hardcore soccer fans.

Bundesliga

The Bundesliga is a league with many Japanese players. Perhaps because of the good compatibility between Germans and Japanese, many players are active. However, the league itself may not be very interesting since Bayern has remained the strongest team for a long time. There is a tendency for many teams to advance to the top of the European Cup competitions.

Ligue 1

Ligue 1 is a league that is less powerful than the top league. There is a strong team called Paris Saint-Germain, but other than that, the league is filled with up-and-coming young players, so the problem is that it is not very popular.

belgian league

The Belgian league is a league where the number of Japanese players has increased rapidly in recent years. Many promising young players belong to this league, where Japanese players are trying to step up.

primeira liga

Primeira Liga is the first division of the Portuguese league. Matches between regular UEFA Champions League teams such as Porto and Benfica will be the biggest attractions. In recent years, the league has been gaining momentum and has been trying to overtake France in the UEFA Country Rankings.

Eredivisie

The Eredivisie is a league that includes clubs such as Ajax, Feyenoord, and even PSV, who are regulars in European Cup competitions. Although they have not been able to win in European Cup matches in recent years, they still have many promising young players on their roster.

Scottish Premiership

The Scottish Premiership is a league in which a large number of Japanese players have been playing in recent years. Although it is a mid-tier league in Europe, Rangers and Celtic are regular players that often appear in the Champions League.

J league

J League is a Japanese soccer league. This league differs from major European leagues in that there is not much difference in the strength of each team, so the same lineup does not always win. It can be said to be a very exciting league as different teams advance to the top every year. Urawa has won the Asian Champions League many times, so their name recognition is increasing.

national team

Although the framework is different from club teams, there are also national team activities. In the case of national teams, there are tournaments to decide the champion of each continent, including the World Cup, and there are also friendly matches, so although they are held irregularly, it is a content that has a certain number of fixed fans.
