What are the best ADSL and TV offers to watch football and follow the Liga and the Champions League in full? The football channels of reference of this season 2017-2018 are Gol , Movistar Partidazo , beIN LaLiga and beIN Sports and beIN Connect . We give you all the details on how to watch these channels and enjoy all the football during this season
Movistar counts the rights of La Liga Santander , La Liga 1 | 2 | 3 (2nd Division) and Copa del Rey pay matches. Also the rest of ADSL and pay TV operators (such as Vodafone, Orange , or Telecable) offer these channels on their platform, often with better prices.
And the beIN Connect streaming platform also has both competitions.
For the Champions League we need the same channel as last season: beIN Sports , where we can fully enjoy the Champions League, the UEFA Europa League and international football. This channel is currently available in all the major pay-TV operators: Movistar, Vodafone, Orange and Telecable. And on the beIN Connect platform
- If you want to see the full Santander League , you need Movistar Partidazo, beIN La Liga and GOL.
- For the League 1 | 2 | 3 , the channel Liga 1 | 2 | 3, available in all companies, and Movistar Partidazo
- For the full Champions , you need beIN Sports (in addition to Antena 3 for the games offered in open).
- The UEFA Europa League , you will only find it at beIN Sports.
- For the Copa del Rey , you need Movistar Partidazo and beIN La Liga
Up to here the channels you need. But which company offers the best offer? Who has the cheapest package? This year the prices are lower than in the previous ones and we found football packages that are even free. We detail the best packages of each operator.
The main football channels on Movistar TV are found in the Football Package . Until now it could be contracted independently, with a price of 25 euros per month . The package includes the channels: Movistar Partidazo, beIN Sports, beIN La Liga, Canal + Liga 2 and Canal + Fútbol .
The best way to see football matches this season is with some of the company’s Fusion rates . Depending on the contracted rate, you will have more or less football content.
- The Fusion + 50 Mb package includes 8 League matches per day.
- All the Fusion + packages that include a connection of 300 Mb will have all the football, including of course the Champions League and the rest of the contents.
In this way, Movistar normalizes the contracting of football content, “obliging” clients in a certain way to dispose of these contents. It remains to be seen the reception that will have in the clients and if they will opt for this option or for the contract of the football package independently along with other services.
ADSL customers . Customers with ADSL coverage may contract the same channels as fiber. With the difference that ADSL will not be able to watch HD channels. If the ADSL connection was not fast enough for the TV, then Movistar will provide the television service through the satellite (we do not pay the registration / installation in exchange for staying in the company for a year).
Vodafone / Fibra Ono
Vodafone and Fibra Ono have a great football offer. The Football Pack can be contracted for only € 20 per month . Includes beIN Sports channels, beIN La Liga, Gol and Movistar Partidazo. So we can see the Champions League, the League and the Copa del Rey in full for that price. If we want to see only national competitions, League and Copa del Rey, the price drops considerably, with a monthly fee of € 20 .
Football content can be contracted with any Internet and Television package (a mobile package such as Vodafone One is not mandatory), either the Essential version or the Total version. The stay in the football package is one month, with the aim that customers can not hire the service a few days to see a particular match.
In January of this 2016, Jazztel television has become that of Orange . We must remember that both companies are in a merger process. Therefore, Jazzbox and the previous TV offers no longer exist.
The clients are still from Jazztel, but now the television platform is shared with Orange. And therefore, the offer is practically identical. This is actually a positive thing, because before with Jazztel, no football channel could be hired, and now it will be possible.
Whether you hire Orange TV Cine y Series you can enjoy beIN LaLiga, Liga 1 | 2 | 3 and Movistar Partidazo for € 9.95, and if you want to see all the Champions with beIN Sports , you must pay an extra € 5 per month.
As in Orange, Jazztel can also now hire the Football Package without having to have a family television offer before. So, outside promotions, beIN La Liga and Movistar Partidazo have a price of € 9.95 per month (and much less if you get a promotional price). To this we can add beIN Sports , which has an additional cost of € 10 per month.
The Orange Football package usually has a cost of € 9.95 per month, unless you have a typical promotional period early temproada. This package includes the channels Movistar Partidazo , Liga 1 | 2 | 3 and beIN La Liga , to see the entire Liga (including the open match) and the Copa del Rey . It includes 9 matches per day, including the most important match of the day and all Real Madrid and Barça matches.
The beIN Sports channel is not included in this price , which with Orange has an additional cost of € 10 per month.
The advantage of Orange is that we do not need to hire any basic TV package. In fact, the football package is available for both ADSL / Fiber + Fixed and Love customers (internet, landline and mobile). This offer can also be contracted on both ADSL and Fiber Optics .
Telecable and Euskaltel
Telecable . The Asturian cable operator has different prices depending on the desired content. As usual at this time of year, it has a promotion to attract customers through football, and it is really attractive. You can count on all the football contents (League, Cup, Champions, Europa League …).
Euskaltel . The Basque operator during this season 2017-2018 will offer the Gol channel .
Satellite or internet
Satellite (without hiring internet) . With Movistar, there is also the possibility of hiring the Fútbol Package without being an internet client. That is, only television. It would be through the satellite. In this case, the monthly cost would be 45 euros per month, which includes the Family Package (€ 20) and the Football Package (€ 25). In the satellite you must also add the cost of registration, which is 100 euros (it can be split into 12 monthly payments).
TV Online . It is also possible to contract beIN Sports, beIN LaLiga, Liga 1 | 2 | 3 and Movistar Partidazo channels through beIN Connect’s own online television platform. Maybe it’s the cheapest way to see all the football

Upcoming seasons (2018/19 onwards)
We already know how the distribution of football rights will be in the coming years and there will be changes. Everything will remain the same at the moment, with the exception of the Champions League, which will no longer have an open match to become all property of beIN Sports.
Movistar will be from next season the main platform to follow all football. It has reached an agreement with beIN, has paid 2,400 million euros, and will have the two channels “exclusively”: beIN Sports (until the 2018/19 season) and beIN La Liga (until the 2018/19 season). Added to the own channel of Movistar Partidazo (also until the season 2018/19).
However, due to conditions imposed by the Spanish regulator, the CNMC, they are obliged to also sell these emission rights to the rest of the pay-TV operators that want to buy them.
Which is the best option?
If we take into account the prices of football in previous seasons, things have improved a lot. So much so, that for example with Orange and Jazztel they even leave us part of the football for a ridiculous price. That is to say, Liga and Copa are almost free for us. Although only 8 matches per day are included. If we want to see the League and the Champions in full , including the Partidazo, then Vodafone / Fibra Ono and also Orange have the best prices. Finally, Movistar is one of the most expensive, but it is the only one that offers coverage throughout the national territory, through broadband or via satellite.
