Missing the football from back home in the UK? Don’t worry. You can easily catch live matches on Sky Sports right from France. Here’s how to do it.


How to get Sky Sports

Sky Sports is offered in France through the subscription package called Skycards.eu. You’ll get your favourite UK channels (ITV Player, 4 On Demand, 5 Player, BBC iPlayer, and more) by accessing them through a VPN router. The VPN (virtual private network) is included in some of the bundles offered by Sky TV.

A VPN is a perfectly legal way of accessing content not available in your current country.

You’ll need to also buy the Now TV HD box, which will give you access to English premier league games, movies and television shows, and more.

Finally, you’ll need to install a satellite dish to access Sky Sports content. Sky TV recommends getting a dish that is at least one metre in diameter for best quality. If you’re unsure of the size or don’t know what sizes are allowed for your area, contact Sky TV.

Once you have all these elements, you’ll easily be able to get English TV in France.
