How to watch Champions League live streams of every game
Every Champions League 23/24 game will be streamed live online somewhere in the world. The trick is in finding out where.

That's good news wherever you are because a VPN — or virtual private network — will let you tune into U.K. coverage from anywhere on the planet. And the same goes for every other country. So, if you're a Brit on vacation in the U.S., you'll be able to use one of the best VPN services to watch the games live on your usual services.

Using a VPN is incredibly simple.
1. Install the VPN of your choice. As we've said, ExpressVPN is our favorite.

3. Sit back and enjoy the action. Head to Paramount Plus or another service and watch the game.
