The 2018-2019 season has already started. Although we have played three LaLiga games, the truth is that the football offer continues to create confusion among users. But now that it's September and most of us are on vacation, it may be a good time to recap. So we are going to review the offer to watch football from operators and streaming services , both for LaLiga and to watch European competitions this season.
The first thing we should know is that Movistar has the rights to the Champions League until 2021 . Therefore, beIN Sports no longer broadcasts this competition. In addition, the open game that Antena 3 did last season also disappears. However, the platform of the Spanish company is not the only one that will offer the maximum European competition.
Regarding LaLiga, LaLiga 1 | 2 | 3 and the Copa del Rey matches, everything is still very similar to what we saw last season. Of course, the Second Division is once again available in Movistar . That said, we are going to review the offer to watch football from each operator and the commented online services.
As you can imagine, Movistar has become "the king of football" this season . As it has all the rights, it is one of the few platforms that offer practically all the matches, of any competition.
The Spanish operator includes LaLiga Santander, LaLiga 1 | 2 | 3, the Champions League, the Europa League and the best international leagues . As for the price, the best thing to do is to hire the Fusion + packages, since they include all services. For new clients, Movistar highlights two convergent offers:
- Fusion + with 100 Mb Fiber (Internet + Landline + 2 mobile lines + Football + Family TV) for 80 euros per month . But beware, this price will only be for the first 4 months. After the promotion it amounts to 130 euros per month.
- Merger + with 600 Mb Fiber (Internet + Landline + 2 mobile lines + Football + Family TV) for 95 euros per month . But beware, this price will only be for the first 4 months. After the promotion, it amounts to 145 euros per month.
The other operator that this year also offers all football is Orange . The French's clients are in luck, as they will be able to see all of LaLiga Santander, LaLiga 1 | 2 | 3, the Copa del Rey, the Champions League and the Europa League. The final price depends on the package we have contracted, but at least we have several options to watch football:
- All LaLiga + the Partidazo for 7.95 euros per month .
- If we have TV Cine y Series contracted, Orange includes LaLiga matches for free. If we want to include the Partidazo we will pay only 3 euros per month.
- All LaLiga + the Partidazo + Champions and Europa League for 22.90 euros per month .
As is logical, the prices mentioned are only for football . To these we must add the rest of the services. So that you can compare with Movistar, the Love Family Essential package (All football + 100 Mb Fiber + 2 mobile lines) has a price of 79.66 euros for 6 months, going to cost 93.85 euros per month afterwards.
If you have followed this year's "football soap opera" you will know that Vodafone has decided not to bid for television rights. However, this refers to European competitions. So if we just want to watch the national competition, we have another offer to watch football.
Specifically, they have the following channels:
- beIN Sports LaLiga (8 LaLiga Santander matches, always one Real Madrid or FC Barcelona match per day, Copa del Rey)
- LaLiga 1 | 2 | 3 (10 live matches and 1 delayed)
- GOL TV : 1 open game in LaLiga Santander
The price, as you can see in the image, is 5 euros per month . To compare with the rest of the operators, we can contract Vodafone One with TV and Soccer (100 Mb Fiber + Mobile with 12 GB + Total TV with Soccer) for 91 euros per month (48 euros per month during the first 3 months).
Jazztel reached an agreement with Orange to include its soccer offer in the service offered by the company. In other words, Jazztel fiber can be combined with Orange television .
Specifically, LaLiga Santander, the Copa del Rey and La Liga 1 | 2 | 3 are offered. The price is 5 euros per month if we only want beIN Sports and 7.5 euros per month if we want to add the Partidazo .
Although beIN has lost the rights to the Champions League, this year it continues to broadcast LaLiga matches . Specifically, it offers the channel beIN LaLiga (it broadcasts 8 LaLiga Santander matches per day), GOL HD (one LaLiga Santander match and two LaLiga 1 | 2 | 3 matches each day and LaLiga 1 | 2 | 3 TV (10 LaLiga 1I2I3 matches every day).
It also has the beIN SPORTS channel, which broadcasts the best matches of Ligue 1 and Serie A every day . All this has a price of 10 euros per month. In addition, beIN has an application for practically any device, so we can watch the games anywhere.
LaLiga 1 | 2 | 3
If your team is in the second division and the first division does not interest you, you have more offer to watch football. For example, you can hire Opensport for 8 euros per month. Another alternative is Sky TV, which also has the LaLiga 1 | 2 | 3 TV channel.
And so far the offer to watch football this year. As you have seen, if you want to see everything you will have to go to Movistar or Orange. If you are not interested in European competitions, you will have more options available. What is clear is that football continues to be one of the great demands for hiring the television operators.
