How to Watch the Bundesliga in 2023-24 in the UK

The Bundesliga is one of the most popular professional football leagues in the world, often regarded as part of the “big five” leagues, along with the English Premier League, Spanish La Liga, Italian Serie A, and French Ligue 1.

Sports Streams News

The Bundesliga is the highest level of professional football in Germany. Since its formal inception in 1962, the German top flight has gone from strength to strength. The competition is often thought of favorably by fans around the world as a place for exciting, attacking football with outstanding stadiums, passionate fans, and incredible atmospheres.

The league’s dominant club Bayern Munich are accepted as one of the biggest sporting institutions on the planet, while clubs like Borussia Dortmund, RB Leipzig, Bayer Leverkusen, and others more than hold their own in European competition.

If you want to learn how to watch the Bundesliga in the UK, you have come to the right place. Our complete guide to live streams and TV coverage for the Bundesliga in 2023-24 has everything covered. 

Which Channels Have Bundesliga TV Rights in the UK? 

Sky Sports holds the rights to the Bundesliga in the UK and will do so until the end of the 2024/25 season. It is the exclusive home of the German top flight.

As well as showing the ‘feature’ match of each game-week at 17.30 every Saturday, it also airs several other fixtures per week, often on Sundays.

Across its Sky Sports Football, Sky Sports Mix, and other channels, Sky Sports has Bundesliga fans covered when it comes to following their favourite teams.

Best TV Packages to Watch the Bundesliga in the UK 

In order to watch the Bundesliga in the UK, fans must have access to Sky Sports. There are many different subscription packages for Sky Sports, with monthly prices varying depending on the quality of the package. 

NOW’s Sports Membership is currently the cheapest way to watch Bundesliga football on Sky Sports. The no-contract, cancel-anytime deal costs £34.99 a month, meaning you don’t need a Sky subscription to enjoy the action. 

Of course, you can pick up one of the many Sky Sports subscriptions on offer. However, Sky subscriptions require you to sign up for an extended period, leaving you tied down to a contract.

Therefore, the absolute cheapest and best package available for watching the Bundesliga in the UK is a subscription to the live-streaming platform NOW.


Best Deals, Free Trials, and Special Offers to Watch the Bundesliga in the UK

While Sky Sports holds the TV rights for Bundesliga football in the UK, fans can access a range of Sky Sports channels via special offers and trials, without getting a traditional Sky Sports subscription.

We have already highlighted the Sports Membership from NOW, but there are other options on offer. For example, Virgin Media has several packages that include Sky Sports channels. You can purchase the Bigger Bundle, Ultimate Volt Bundle, or Biggest TV Bundle and take advantage of fibre broadband Bundesliga live streams.


Best Bundesliga Live Streaming Options in the UK 

In addition to watching Bundesliga matches on linear TV, fans in the UK can enjoy live German top flight live streams on their favourite mobile devices, including smartphones, tablets, and laptops. 

Sky Sports customers can use the Sky Go app to watch live Bundesliga streams, while the Virgin TV Go app enables Virgin Media customers to stay up to date with all the latest Bundesliga action.

Can You Watch the Bundesliga Using a VPN? 

If a Sky Sports subscription isn’t your preference, the great news is that you can use a VPN to livestream Bundesliga matches.

Numerous reliable VPN providers are available, such as NordVPN and ExpressVPN. Nonetheless, we advise conducting your own research before venturing into the realm of VPNs.

Once you have one, you can sign up for a package with an international broadcaster and sign in to follow their coverage via live streaming using your chosen VPN.

One particular option we recommend is OneFootball. If you connect your VPN to a number of countries in Latin America, including Brazil, you can watch every Bundesliga game of the season completely free.

Best Platforms to Watch Bundesliga Highlights in the UK 

There are two reliable places to watch Bundesliga highlights in the UK.

Sky Sports produces Bundesliga highlights shows for its linear television customers. It also posts highlights on its website and app.

However, the better and easier option is to simply load up YouTube on your phone, tablet, laptop, smart TV, or other device, and visit the official Bundesliga YouTube channel, where British fans can see highlights of every Bundesliga game of the season.
