Although we have had a break of several months, the Champions League that will be played this summer is part of the 2019-2020 season. In other words, the television rights for this second part of the competition are still held by the same operators.

In the case of Spain, the Champions League can be seen through Movistar, Orange, Jazztel and MiTele Plus . In other words, like last year, there is no open game. So if you want to see the Champions League, legally, you will have no choice but to go through the box.

The television rights of the Champions League for the 19-20 season are owned by Movistar, so we can go to their television offer to see what remains of the competition. If we have contracted the corresponding package, we can watch the matches online through the Movistar + platform .

Orange also wanted its customers to see the Champions League this year, so it reached an agreement with Movistar for the transfer of broadcasting rights. In fact, Orange's channels are exactly the same as Movistar's. And if what we want is to see it online and we are clients of the French operator, we will have to resort to the Orange TV application .

The last option is to go to MiTele Plus . Mediaset surprised everyone this season by acquiring the rights to broadcast the Champions League matches through its MiTele application. The good news is that, unlike what happens with the rest of the options, if we opt for MiTele Plus we will not need any convergent Internet, telephone and television rates.

In fact, Mediaset has launched a special promotion for which we can see the end of this atypical Champions League. The platform offers us the possibility of making a single payment of 45 euros and having access to the entire Champions League and the Europa League until the end of August. Or, it is possible to make a payment of 50 euros and have it until the end of the year. Both options also include the MiTele Plus Basic package.

Finally, tell you that if you want to watch the Champions League but you do not live in Spain, on the UEFA website you can see a list of the operators that broadcast the competition in each country.
