Despite records set by Kylian Mbappé and his teammates in Ligue 1, PSG still has not confirmed its status as a potential winner of the Champions League. Neymar’s teammates suffered a horrible defeat against Manchester United. A second reassada badly lived by the fans of French soccer who make, in spite of that, everything to follow the matches of the other teams still in the running.


The arrival of SFR in the audiovisual landscape of European football has not been well seen by all football fans. Saying that you have to pay nearly 20 euros to follow the European meetings in addition to BeIn and / or Canal + subscriptions for Ligue 1, it’s a little bad. Some users have simply decided to skip the Ligue 1 by canceling their subscription to subscribe to the RMC sports offer.

This offer at 19 euros/month (9 euros for subscribers SFR) still has the advantage of watching the games on all platforms: TV, smartphone or PC. But if you do not want to give in to the sirens of RMC Sport (without referring to Christophe Dugarry or Daniel Riolo, do you?), You have other free and more or less stable alternatives.


The broadcast of the Champions League on RMC Sport is a real boon for illegal streaming sites, because as we pointed out above, all football fans are not ready to spend 240 euros extra per year to follow the competition. They rush to streaming sites full of ads and potentially unwanted software, but you already know the song, so be careful.

Beyond the “classic” streaming sites known to all, a new phenomenon is gaining momentum: communities of streamers (users who share streams of sports events) have formed on Reddit.


In these communities, links are distilled per match. Quality streams are rated positively (upvote) and naturally go back to the top of the page. The strongest community has more than 350,000 members!

The links often refer to blogs funded again by advertising. Others are Acestream links, a software designed with the VLC backbone used to view P2P streaming content.

The hacking of sports content also goes through IPTV applications and box. Internet Protocol Television provides access to television channels via the Internet. Streaming sports content is not illegal if your service provider pays its broadcast rights.

The problem is that illegal offers unstable and unreliable swarm on the web. Individuals and organizations behind these offers illegally retrieve feeds and redirect them to their pre-configured apps and other Android boxes. Illegal TV packages are then offered in the form of attractive subscriptions (2000 channels for 2 days for less than 2 euros, or for one year for 45 euros).

Some sites also offer free trial offers ranging from a few hours to 3 days. The rights holders and the authorities have engaged in a merciless struggle to stop the phenomenon that is gaining momentum.
