Is there anything more galvanizing for France than Ligue 1? As national team matches follow one another, passions burn on the terraces of our cafés. But how can we watch Ligue 1 live so as not to miss anything of the competition? Follow the leader.
Ligue 1 is a very French tradition in football. However, the audiovisual landscape has changed a lot in recent years, to the point that the traditional PSG / OM that we are all waiting for can sometimes be difficult to find now. It must be said that the broadcasting rights have never been so bickered as over the past three years, where the arrival and then the death of Mediapro turned everything upside down. So let’s take stock of the different ways to enjoy Ligue 1 streaming.
If the 2020 and earlier seasons were reserved for well-known actors, the rights to the 2021 to 2023 seasons are now owned by an actor who was not necessarily expected: Amazon. The American giant has indeed recovered the lots from the late Mediapro, giving it the rights to broadcast 8 of the 10 matches per day in Ligue 1 and Ligue 2 until 2024.
The remaining 20% are therefore to be seen on the side of Canal, which has therefore managed to recover 2 matches per day of Ligue 1. These are broadcast by beIN Sports, accessible in the Canal + Sport offer at 34.99 euros per month for 12 months. However, this subscription does not stop at Ligue 1, and will also allow you to enjoy the Champions League, Europa, Premier League, La Liga, Bundesliga and Serie A.
To really enjoy Ligue 1 streaming, you need access to the Amazon Prime Video platform. A specific subscription to Ligue 1 called “Le Pass Ligue 1” is sold there for 12.99 euros per month. As a bonus, you need to add the 5.99 euros per month of the Prime Video subscription, which is however included in the overall Amazon Prime offer.
