If you can’t make it over to France for this year’s Euros, worry not: they’ll be broadcast on TV too.

In the UK you’ll be able to catch each match on BBC or ITV, with Welsh viewers also able to tune into S4C for any Wales matches.

Interestingly, BBC is also showing a couple of matches via its Red Button channel options and nobody is broadcasting in 4K in the UK.

Watch UEFA Euro 2016: Where to watch abroad

If you’re lucky enough to be on holiday or just out of the country during the Euros, you can still watch coverage easily across Europe and the world.

While many major European broadcasters will be airing matches live, if you’re somewhere else in the world, it could be a more obscure network showing matches. Here’s a full list of global Euro 2016 broadcasters.


If you’d prefer to watch the Euro’s with the dulcet tones of Gary Lineker or Mark Pougatch, a VPN and online streaming service can help you out. TVCatchup is a great site for watching matches live. You could also sign up for a Now TV entertainment pass, which gives you access to live TV and catch-up services. BBC iPlayer and ITV Player are handy ways to watch matches abroad, too, although you may not be able to gain access via a free VPN service.

If you’re wondering how to gain access with a VPN on whatever device you’re using, our guide to watching US Netflix in the UK can help.

Watch UEFA Euro 2016: Pub guide


Finding a good pub that’s showing the match you want to see can be tricky, especially in the later stages when matches are being shown simultaneously. Thankfully, you can always rely on a Wetherspoon’s, Fullers or any reasonably large pub or brewery-owned chain to be showing the football.

If you’d like something a little cosier, more authentic or somewhere swanky to sip a pint and watch the footie, take a look at Match Pint’s listings for pubs showing the matches you want.
