Watching Euro 2020 in Korea
« on: June 09, 2021, 08:24:19 am »
Euro 2020 kicks off on Friday and I'm struggling to find a way to watch it as it seems my old-reliable fullmatchesandshows .com has finally bit the dust.  It seems that none of the Korean cable sports channels are showing it, not even Spot TV (showing the Copa America instead).  I've yet to find (even a paid) VPN that lets me watch the sports on the BBC or ITV players.

I have two small kids so I prefer to watch delayed coverage in the morning before they get up as opposed to streaming it live late at night.

I don't mind paying to access a mainstream online service like ESPN or something for a month or two (if possible), but struggling to find one.

I'd be very grateful if someone could point me in the right direction.

Google search: "sports stream(ing)"  and you should get a bunch of options. Not sure about delayed matches as the sites might only be for live stuff.

Literally the only country on earth not showing it.  :cry:

Yeah, I saw that.  I copied and pasted it onto the Facebooks of the major broadcasters, see if I can shame one of them into putting it on ^^

Damn, now that I'm part-time only I planned on staying up late and watching some of the games. Even told the wifey to purchase me some beer for the games this weekend.

Also, anybody have some recommendations on some good online gambling sites other than BETNOW? Bovada and a few other "reliable" ones don't allow betting from Korea. I think France will win, but something is telling me to go big on Italy. And by big, I mean 50 bucks.

It's so frustrating, you'd think for such important tournaments as this they'd be some global PPV service that you can use wherever you are.  It looks like I'll just have to use some dodgy stream, or get my parents back home to share their Iplayer screen over Webex or as a last resort prop the Ipad up in front of the TV (I kid you not).

I agree with the above, France favourites but it really could be anyone's, all the big guns have significant weaknesses.

I usually have decent luck getting on youtube and searching " _______ vs  _______ live." Worked with the US vs Mexico game on Monday. Stream only went wonky once.

Cheers, I'll give it a try.

Them not showing Euro2020 but Copa America is just bizarre. Like when you think someone is an asshole but actually they're just batshit crazy.

Also, given the domestic sports bet action, you'd figure they'd have some outlet.

But kudos for TvN stepping up.

Regarding Copa America, the games are shown at 6 am and 9 am, whereas Euro 2020 have time slots of 10 pm, 1 am, and 4 am from what I'm seeing.

I don't really have a dog in the fight and I'm not a die-hard, so I'll focus on the 10 pm Euro and 9 am Copa America matches.

Let the fun begin!
