On August 17, the Spanish La Liga starts: for the first time, all matches will be streamed live by DAZN. Here's how it works
It will be Girona - Valladolid to inaugurate the 2018-2019 season of the Spanish La Liga. The Spanish league restarts on August 17 and for the first time Italian fans will be able to see all the matches of the Liga streaming sitting comfortably on their couch at home.
The television rights have been purchased by DAZN, the new online platform that will also exclusively broadcast some matches of the Serie A, Serie B and the entire Ligue 1. All 2018-2019 Spanish La Liga matches will be available on demand and streaming. DAZN works a bit like Netflix: you pay a monthly subscription (9.99 euros) and you have access to all the content on the platform. For the Italian market, accustomed to digital terrestrial or satellite TV, this is an epoch-making change: to see the matches you just need an Internet connection.
The Spanish La Liga 2018-2019 starts again without one of its main protagonists: Cristiano Ronaldo. The Portuguese striker has moved to Juve and will play in Serie A for the first time. Ronaldo's escape has not diminished the appeal of the Spanish league: Barcelona has bought Vidal from Bayern Munich, Real Madrid Courtois from Chelsea (awarded as the best goalkeeper of the World Cup), Atletico Madrid has renewed Griezmann (probable winner of the Golden Ball) and bought Lemar, a talent from Monaco. The final victory will be played by these three teams, with Barcelona the natural favorite after winning the La Liga last year.
Liga has also adopted for a couple of seasons the "calcio spezzatino" scheme: from Friday to Monday there will be a match for each time slot. It starts on Friday night, continues on Saturday with a couple of games, on Sunday there is the appointment with the game of 12:00 and ends with the Monday Night. Here's how to stream Spanish La Liga 2107-2018.
How to stream Spanish La Liga 2018-2019
All Spanish La Liga matches will be streamed live on DAZN. To access DAZN you need to subscribe monthly at a cost of 9.99 euros (the first month is free). The platform is accessible from any electronic device: computers, smartphones, tablets, smart TVs, consoles, Google Chromecast and Fire TV Stick (useful for those who do not have a smart TV).
To follow the Spanish Liga live streaming just access DAZN during the time of the games, and in the homepage of the platform you will find all the games broadcast at that time: clicking on the match that interests you will start streaming. The service is very easy to use and does not need an ultra-fast connection to work at its best.
How to watch the Spanish Liga streaming on Mediaset Premium
Mediaset Premium did not want to participate in the auction of television rights of the Serie A and remained without any exclusive event. To offer its customers the opportunity to see some soccer matches it has closed a deal with DAZN that allows Mediaset Premium users to subscribe for free to the new sports platform. To do so, just use your Mediaset Premium customer code during the DAZN subscription. In this way, customers of the Biscione TV will be able to see free streaming of all the matches of the Spanish Liga on DAZN.
How to see the Spanish Liga streaming on Sky
Also Sky has signed an agreement with DAZN, but the satellite TV has not managed to wrest the same conditions as Mediaset Premium. Sky users who want to subscribe to DAZN can do so by purchasing discounted tickets. The one-month ticket costs €7.99, the three-month ticket costs €21.99, while the nine-month package can be purchased for €59.99. After purchasing the ticket, it will be possible to stream the 2018-2019 Spanish La Liga with one of the devices supported by DAZN (support for the SkyQ decoder should also arrive in the coming months).
