PSG vs Man United live stream: how to watch the Champions League

Matchday 1 of the 2020/21 Champions League group stage kicks-off with a belter tonight as last year’s finalists play host to Manchester United. Can these two survive this season’s group of death? Make sure you know how to watch a PSG vs Man United live stream.

UK football fans can watch PSG vs Man United on BT Sport in HD. In the US, subscribers to CBS All Access can stream this game and any other Champions League fixture for $5.99 per month. Remember to use a VPN when trying to stream away from home in another country.

A much-needed win at the weekend will have put some confidence back in the stride of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team but PSG will pose a very different problem to Newcastle. It’s not like Manchester United can just write this one off either with Red Bull Leipzig also in the group.

None of Harry Maguire, Mason Greenwood, Edinson Cavani, Eric Bailly or Jesse Lingard are fit to play but then PSG have personnel problems of their own.

Thomas Tuchel is without Marco Verratti, Leandro Paredes, Mauro Icardi, Thilo Kehrer and Juan Bernat. Former Red Devil Angel di Maria is back from suspension. Marquinhos and Julian Draxler make the bench after returning to training this week.

Those aside, there’s a two forwards called Neymar and M’bappe that might be worth watching out for too.

It’s an 8pm kick-off at the Parc des Princes. Read on to find out how to watch a PSG vs Man United live stream, wherever you are in the world.

UEFA Champions League fans in the States are lucky enough to be able to watch some of the European football action on Spanish language network Univision. You’ll need to have a Univision subscription as part of your cable package.

The other option this season is to watch any of the Champions League games live and on-demand through CBS All Access which offers a 7-day free trial of the service, including PSG vs Man United.

Once the free trial expires, CBS All Access costs a very reasonable $5.99 per month or $59.99 for the year. Don’t forget to use a VPN if you’re a US citizen trying to watch from abroad.

If you’d rather not sign-up for CBS All Access, then you can get an NFL Red-style whip round show of all the Champions League games each day by watching the CBS broadcast TV station.

Watch PSG vs Man United anywhere in the world using a VPN

Even if you have subscribed to the relevant rights holders, you won’t be able to use them when outside your own country. The service will know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block your access.

A Virtual Private Network (VPN) helps you get around this obstacle. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, such that the servers and services you’re accessing aren’t aware of what you’re doing. All the information passing back and forth is entirely encrypted.

There are many VPN providers out there, with some more reliable and safe than others. As a rule, we’d suggest a paid-for service such as ExpressVPN or NordVPN.

ExpressVPN three months free with a year-long plan
You can get three months free when you sign up to a year-long plan, bringing VPN access to smart devices including the Amazon Fire TV Stick, laptops, TVs and both Android and iOS mobiles and tablets. Express also offers a 30-day money-back guarantee.View Deal

Once you’ve made your choice, all you need to do is sign in to your VPN service through whichever device you’d like to use to watch the match, and pick a server which is based in the country whose content you’d like to access. Here you can find a full list of the free Champions League broadcasters. Then navigate to the relevant video streaming app or website and you’re in.

Watch PSG vs Man United in the UK

Rights to show the UEFA Champions League in the UK belong to BT Sport, whose long-term deal to broadcast all matches from UEFA club competitions means you’ll also be able to watch the Europa League.

BT Sport for existing BT TV customers from just £10
Upgrading to all four BT Sport channels is no big deal if you’re already a BT customer. Those with BT TV already can access the channels for £10 per month. BT Broadband customers can enjoy the BT Sport app and watch on the go for the same price.View Deal

New BT broadband and BT TV customers get access to some great deals including BT Sport while existing BT customers can upgrade to the sport channels for as little as £10 per month.

Sky TV users can also add BT Sport to their existing package from £30 a month, but that will not include any 4K viewing. It’s also worth looking out for bundled Sky Sports and BT Sport deals.

However you subscribe to BT Sport, though, you will get access to streams via the BT website and BT Sport app, so you can watch on the move within the UK or from abroad, using a VPN.

Watch the Champions League live in 4K

You can watch the Champions League in 4K HDR, beamed at 50fps on BT Sport Ultimate, channel 433. If you’re hooked up specifically on the BT TV platform then it’s also available in with Dolby Atmos sound. Sadly, PSG vs Man United has not been selected for 4K coverage, though.

BT Sport Ultimate fixtures are also available, minus the Atmos, for Virgin Media customers who subscribe to the BT Sport Collection. You can enjoy it in 4K HDR on channel 555.

Those on Virgin Media will need the Virgin V6 box and a 4K TV to make sure they’re getting the action at maximum resolution. With the basic Big Bundle, BT Sport is £18 per month but all five BT Sport channels, including Ultra HD, are included on the larger TV packages which start at £57 per month. More details on Virgin Media TV bundles.

BT Sport Ultimate is not available on the Sky TV platform but anyone with an Xbox, PlayStation, Apple TV or a Samsung TV can watch the Champions League in 4K HDR using the BT Sport app with the BT Sport Monthly Pass. No contract required.

BT Sport Monthly Pass for £25 per month
Enjoy the Champions League, FA Cup, Premier League and more in 4K HDR, all contract-free through the BT Sport app on games consoles, Apple TV and Samsung TVs. You do not need to be a BT customer and can opt out at any time.View Deal

Watch a PSG vs Man United for free

Football fans in Austria, Canada, Germany and Japan get the chance to watch the UEFA Champions League for free. DAZN has the rights to show the Champions League and a whole host of sports in these territories, and, best of all, DAZN offers a 1-month free trial. So long as you’ve not used yours already, then you can fill your boots.

Sadly the DAZN free trial isn’t available to those outside these regions. If you are a DAZN customer but travelling abroad, you’ll need to sign up to a VPN service to make sure you can access the DAZN Champions League live stream wherever you are.

It’s also worth noting that there are free streams on terrestrial channels such Match TV in Russia, if that’s where you happen to be. You can find a full list of the world’s broadcasters with rights to show the live Champions League football here.
