Preface:

The 67th UEFA Champions League is underway and it’s getting better and better and we’re already waiting for surprises to happen. The Premier League teams have performed outstandingly and now we’ll see how they’ll fare in the coming rounds.

The Champions League is no doubt one of the biggest football club games in the world. However, the pandemic resulted in travel restrictions and certain movement limitations around the world. If you’re a football club enthusiast, and couldn’t make it to the stadium, fret not because we’ve got you covered!

In this guide, we’ll tell you how to watch all the Champions League matches on Firestick for free at home. There are free as well as paid methods to watch on Firestick and both methods work fine on Firestick. Moreover, these methods are compatible with all Fire TV types.

The UEFA Champions League - Our Two Cents:

Chelsea is defending its Championship this year and the competitions are in full swing! The league started on September 14th this year with 32 teams dreaming of holding the trophy on May 28th, 2022. The knockout rounds will begin in February and in May the Final will be a single match that will be played in the Krestovsky Stadium in St. Petersburg.

The first weeks of the Champions League have given us awesome soccer action, but there are more twists to come. If you have already missed the matches, don’t miss the upcoming ones as the league is getting even hotter! Let us take you to the ‘How to Guide’ for watching the Champions League matches on Firestick for free.

What are the Live Streaming Platforms to Watch UEFA League?

Live Streaming Platforms to Watch UEFA LeagueNo football fan wants to miss the UEFA champions league! Thus, FIFA, which owns the UEFA Congress, made sure that the football club is telecasted worldwide. You can watch all the matches live on those channels that have the streaming rights to broadcast the Champions League.

In the U.S, CBS got the streaming rights to broadcast the tournament. So any live streaming service that has a CBS channel or OTT can air the League matches on the Firestick. Similarly, every country has a different channel that has got the streaming rights. For example, in the U.K, it is BT Sport and Sky Sport.

These days no one looks for free streaming platforms on the web to watch their favorite teams battle on the ground. Also, the U.S. and EU have taken all the measures to block those platforms that stream the matches illegally. So, watching a complete match for free is a difficult thing now. However, worry not because we’re here to help you watch the game live, legally, and free.

So is there a way to Watch UEFA Champions League for Free?

The rights to air the Champions League have been given to limited paid platforms in different countries. You can get the official apps from the Amazon app store to watch through them on Firestick. These official apps are accessible from the Amazon app store and you don’t even need to sideload them on your mobile or any device. There are a plethora of streaming options in the U.S that include the CBS family of channels, and they come with different catalogs and pricing structures.

The majority of these official apps are available in the U.S. and a few other countries. But if you live in another country, don’t worry because you can use a VPN service and surpass geo-blocking. For example, you can use ExpressVPN to install the official apps that are specific to the U.S. and run them on Firestick. So yes there are ways to watch the UEFA Champions League for free, and we’re going to discuss them in the next section.

UEFA Champions League Free Streaming with Official Apps

The Official apps that are streaming the Champions League provide a free trial too for first-time subscribers. So if you’re a first-time subscriber, you can enjoy the free trial for a few weeks. However, if you aren’t a first-time subscriber, you can enjoy this free offer too. You can create a new email ID (different from the previous one with which you subscribed earlier), and then use the free service to watch the League matches. Following are the highlights of the free trials offered by the official apps:

  • You can sign up for a 7-day free trial at CBS’s Paramount+ service.
  • Start watching Champions League coverage on fuboTV by signing up for a 7-day free trial
  • Enjoy YouTube TV’s free trial for 14 days
  • After using the above free trials, you can also go for Hulu Live TV that also offers a 7-day free trial
  • In the end, you can use a good VPN service such as ExpressVPN and connect to a Canadian server. There you can enjoy the 3-day free trial offered by DAZN.

If you notice, you can combine all these free trials offered by the official apps and watch the UEFA Champions League for around two months. However, it is important to note that you MUST add a reminder for canceling all the services before the due dates of the free trial. If you don’t do so, the service will start charging you for using the platform.

UEFA Champions League Free Streaming with Unofficial Apps

The Firestick is designed on Android OS and for this reason, it can install all types of third-party apps. But for installing any third-party app that isn’t available on the Google Play Store or Amazon App Store, you must first protect your activities on Firestick.

If the government or local ISP company tracks your location and finds out that you are watching illegal or unlicensed content on Firestick, you can get in trouble. We always use ExpressVPN to protect our devices as it is equipped with numerous safety and security features. Also, you can get this VPN easily for your Amazon Fire TV devices. Follow these steps to install ExpressVPN on your Firestick:

  1. Use this link to get ExpressVPN. The service is available with a 30-day money-back guarantee. So if you aren’t happy with the service (which is not possible), you can get a refund after 30 days.
  2. Navigate to the ‘Find’ option on your Firestick and then move on to the ‘Search’ option.
  3. In the search bar type ‘ExpressVPN’. When it shows in the results, click on it.
  4. Click on ‘Download’ to install the VPN.Sign In option on ExpressVPN
  5. Now open the ExpressVPN and enter your Email and password that you used to buy the service from the link.
  6. Connect to ExpressVPN by clicking on the power button.
  7. You are now connected to ExpressVPN on your Firestick.Screenshot of the ExpressVPN screen of smart location of a suitable server

Now that you’re connected to VPN, you are free to watch the UEFA Champions League with the unofficial apps without worrying about being tracked. Below is the list of the unofficial apps to watch the tournament:

IPTV Services and Third-Party Free IPTV Apps

IPTV Services and Third-Party Free IPTV AppsSubscribe to an IPTV service as it features numerous live TV channels to watch movies, sports, and other shows. There are a lot of channels where you can watch the UEFA Champions League. You just have to subscribe to the service and connect it to an IPTV player like IPTV Smarter, TiviMate, Flix IPTV. You can also select the third-party free IPTV apps to watch the league. Don’t forget to switch on ExpressVPN to keep yourself safe.

Kodi Addons

Companies like Amazon and Kodi don’t allow unverified third-party apps in the Amazon App Store and the official Kodi repository respectively. These companies do a crackdown against third-party apps and addons because the apps can carry illegal and unlicensed content.

Because of this reason, jailbreaking is becoming common on Firestick and many users sideload the addons and third-party apps too. These add-ons and third-party apps charge a negligible fee and allow you to watch the UEFA Champions League, too. You can try to watch the tournament using good Kodi Addons but remember to use a secure VPN.

Sports Streaming Websites

Sports Streaming Websites are the last option because they aren’t always a safe option for Firestick. There are lots of such websites available on the web, but the quality of streams on these platforms is usually low, and they buffer too. To try the sports streaming websites on Firestick, you can use the Amazon Silk Browser and watch the Champions League for free. However, not all these websites are authentic as they can steal your personal information. Moreover, there is no ad-block feature for the Amazon Silk Browser on the Firestick.

Enabling an adblocker can save you in this regard. You can use Google Chrome on Firestick for enabling the ad blocker. But, unfortunately, Chrome isn’t compatible with the Firestick remote so using it would be not hassle-free. For these obvious reasons, we recommend using the official apps or the Kodi addons and IPTV services, such as Sportz TV, for watching the Champions League.
