The Primeira Liga, also known as Liga NOS, is the top tier of the Portuguese football league system, where the best athletes in Portugal and elsewhere go head-to-head to decide the most dominating club in a country with a long history of high-level football competition.

Founded in 1934, Primeira Liga has steadily been stepping up its level of play and international reputation in recent years. Follow my advice below on how to stream the league’s matches from locations all over the globe in order to not miss out on exciting Primeira Liga action.

In the U.S.

If you’re an American hoping to catch live Primeira Liga matches, you have a couple of options, and one is much better than the other.

GolTV has the television rights to broadcast the league’s matches and airs 3-5 matches each week, unfortunately, it is currently difficult to find a provider that actually carries the channel. Luckily, the streaming service FuboTV, available anywhere in the country, DOES carry the channel. 

FuboTV costs $19.99 for your first month after your seven-day free trial, and then $44.99 forever after. The service is available to watch on a wide range of platforms, including iOS, Android, Chromecast, Roku, and Amazon Fire TV. In order to watch Primeira Liga matches, you’ll have to pay an additional monthly fee for one of a selection of premium packages (the cheapest is the International Sports Plus option at $5.99 a month) in order to gain access to GolTV.

In Canada

Don’t panic, canucks. fuboTV is also available in your country, albeit in the slightly different “Canadian Package” which unfortunately does not allow subscribers access to GolTV. However, you are able to watch Benfica TV, a Portuguese sports channel that airs Primeira Liga matches. 

In Latin America

GolTV has a Latin American channel known as GolTV LatinoAmérica available through many providers in Central and South American countries. Unfortunately, it does not seem to air Primeira Liga matches. The best bet for those living in this region of the world is probably to use a VPN provider to obtain a US internet connection and subscribe to fuboTV, a process I’ll describe later.

In the UK

Primeira Liga fans in the UK can catch live matches on two BT Sport networks: BT Sport ESPN and BT Sport Extra. The network also offers an app available on both iOS and Android that will stream select matches, as well.

In Europe

European broadcasters, and the amount of coverage of Primeira League matches, vary widely from country to country. Check here for more information about which channel broadcasts the league in your country.

In Australia

Aussies are mainly out of luck when it comes to options for viewing Primeira Liga matchups, as no domestic providers have deals with the Portuguese League. However, RTP Internacional, available through certain cable providers, does air a few matches throughout the season.

The opportunities to catch Primeira Liga matches, while pretty good in the US, are limited in other countries, or not present at all. If you live somewhere without any reasonable means of accessing Primeira Liga action, your best bet is probably to acquire a VPN (virtual private network) through a choice provider that will anchor your internet connection to the United States and allow you to sign up for the fuboTV streaming service.

FuboTV is geo-blocked outside of the US and Canada, but a VPN will enable you to bypass these regional restrictions and use the service.

In order to obtain a VPN provider that will allow you to sign up for fuboTV, gain access to GolTV and –at last–watch Primeira League matches, just follow these steps:

  1. Choose a VPN provider with a sturdy reputation and a large selection of US servers. I recommend ExpressVPN, NordVPN, or BulletVPN. Each is reasonably priced, allows for unlimited bandwidth, and offers excellent customer support.
  2. Follow the step-by-step instructions on the provider’s site and install the VPN client on the device you wish to use for streaming, and then log in.
  3. Once you log in, you will have the choice of a wide range of servers within the US. It may take some trial and error to find the one that allows for the best connection. Once you find it, stick with it.
  4. Clear your browser’s cache.
  5. Go to the fuboTV website and sign up for your desired service, and don’t forget to choose a premium package that grants you access to GolTV. Remember, you are given a free trial, so if things don’t work as planned, you may always cancel.
  6. Watch Primeira Liga matches on GolTV!
