How to watch Copa América 2024 live online

Copa América 2024 is already upon us, with the opening fixture of Argentina vs Canada kicking off on Thursday, June 20 at 8 PM ET (5 PM PT / 1 AM BST). The international soccer tournament sees 16 countries, including defending champions Argentina, traveling to the United States with the ultimate aim of lifting the prestigious trophy. Don’t want to miss a minute of the action? You may need a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to watch Copa América in your location.

In this post, we only recommend official sources for streaming Copa América 2024. Despite the many unlicensed streams that are likely to be available, their inferior quality and tendency to be taken offline for copyright violation make them an unreliable choice. When there are so many official broadcasters of Copa América, many of which are showing the games for free, there’s really no need to risk potentially missing out on matches with unauthorized streams.

Traveling abroad? Due to geographic restrictions, you’ll likely need a VPN to access your home country’s streaming platform, showing Copa América 2024.

How to watch Copa América 2024 from anywhere with a VPN

Before we provide you with step-by-step instructions on how to watch Copa América 2024 from anywhere in the world, we’ll quickly explain what a VPN is and how it works. A VPN is a service with which you can connect to a server in your home country. In doing so, you’re assigned a new, temporary IP address, and your data is encrypted in the process. This makes it easy to spoof your location and sidestep the geographic restrictions of streaming platforms.

Here’s how to stream Copa América 2024 using a VPN:

  1. Sign up with a quality VPN provider. We particularly recommend NordVPN. However, Surfshark and ExpressVPN are equally adept at unblocking and streaming.
  2. Next, you’ll need to download the VPN app that’s compatible with your chosen streaming service. Installation usually only takes a minute or two.
  3. Open the VPN app and sign in if prompted. You can then connect to a server. For example, a server in the US to get a US IP address for use with Fox Sports.
  4. Visit the streaming platform in question. You should now be able to stream without restriction.
  5. Blocked? Clear your browser’s cookies to ensure your previous IP address is forgotten. It’s often worth trying multiple servers (and clearing cookies between each attempt).

Copa América will air live in countries worldwide. It’s for this reason that we recommend you test your new VPN with your preferred streaming service well before kickoff. This gives you time to troubleshoot issues with your VPN’s customer support.


NordVPN is offering a fully featured risk-free 30-day trial if you sign up at this page. You can use the VPN rated #1 for streaming Copa América 2024 with no restrictions for a month – perfect for the one month that the Copa América runs for.

There are no hidden terms—just contact support within 30 days if you decide NordVPN isn't right for you and you'll get a full refund. Start your NordVPN trial here.

How to watch Copa América 2024 live online for free on US TV

How to watch Copa América 2024 on US TV

Fox Sports holds the English language broadcasting rights in the US. Those with cable TV subscriptions that include Fox Sports can therefore watch Copa América live online at no extra cost. This requires signing in to Fox Sports online using your cable TV login credentials (this is usually an email address or username and password).

It’s also possible to watch Fox Sports cable-free via select TV streaming services:

  • FuboTV(USD $79.99/month with a 7-day free trial)
  • Hulu with Live TV ($76.99/month with a 3-day free trial)
  • Sling TV($20 for your first month and $40/month thereafter)
  • YouTube TV ($57.99/month for the first three months and $72.99/month thereafter).

For Spanish language coverage, you’ll need to access TUDN, Univision, or UniMás. As with Fox Sports, there are ways to watch these channels both with and without cable.

Whether watching Copa América via Fox Sports, Hulu, YouTube TV, Univision, or any of the other above options, you’ll find they are region-locked when you travel abroad. Fortunately, a VPN can help you fix this. In this case, you’d need to connect to a server in the US. NordVPN is an excellent unblocker and streamer of content and comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee so you can try it risk-free.

Where else can I watch Copa América 2024 online?


How to watch Copa América 2024 on Canadian TV

TSN and RDS hold the exclusive broadcasting rights for the 2024 Copa América. If you already have a cable TV subscription with TSN, you can sign in online and watch every game. Otherwise, you’d need to sign up for a monthly subscription which costs $19.99 (or $199.90 a year). The same goes for RDS for French language commentary.

Due to the fact that TSN and RDS are only available to watch in Canada, a VPN and Canadian IP address is required to stream their content from overseas.


How to watch Copa América 2024 on UK TV

Premier Sports has secured the broadcast rights to Copa América 2024. There are multiple ways to go about watching Premier Sports, one of which is via Sky. Indeed, if you’re a Sky TV customer, you may already have access to its Premier 1 and Premier 2 channels. In this case, you can watch online via Sky Go.

However, one of the easiest ways to stream Premier Sports is via Amazon Prime Video. A subscription costs GBP £8.99 a month, although you’ll also need the Premier Sports add-on which is a further £14.99/month. On the plus side, Amazon Prime Video offers a 30-day free trial to new customers.

Going abroad on vacation? By connecting to a VPN’s UK server for a UK IP address, you can continue to stream Premier Sports and watch Copa América as normal.


How to watch Copa América 2024 on Australian TV

Optus Sport is showing every match of the Copa América 2024. If you’re an Optus customer who doesn’t yet have access to Optus Sport, you can add it for the price of AUD $6.99 a month. Otherwise, a monthly subscription costs $24.99/month (or $199 a year). An Australian IP address is needed to watch Optus Sport, so a VPN is required to stream from outside Australia.

Other countries

Copa América 2024 will air in far too many countries for us to cover but here’s a link to a list of official broadcasting partners.

Can I watch Copa América 2024 abroad with a free VPN?

It’s unlikely you’ll have much success using a free VPN to watch Copa América simply because most free VPNs simply aren’t very good at unblocking streaming services. A free VPN won’t offer servers in many locations and the very small number of IP addresses offered (which are shared by many users) have often already been blacklisted by streaming platforms.

Besides, free VPNs are far too slow for live sports streaming and typically throttle the bandwidth of the many users they attract. There are also some security concerns to be aware of. For example, a free VPN may not provide a sufficient level of encryption for your data, leaving it vulnerable. What’s more, your personal information (including your browsing activity) may be logged and sold to third parties. So much for what’s supposed to be a privacy tool!

Copa América 2024: FAQs

Is it legal to stream Copa América 2024 with a VPN?

Yes, it’s legal to stream Copa América 2024 with a VPN. Although accessing certain streaming platforms from abroad may go against their terms of use, that doesn’t make it illegal. Some streaming services attempt to manage this by blocking known VPN IP addresses. Switching servers to change your IP address allows you to get around this.

Just keep in mind that many VPNs have been banned in a small minority of countries such as Russia and Iran. Be sure to check the legality of using them where you are before proceeding.

Who are the favorites to win Copa América 2024?

Argentina are currently favorites to retain their Copa América crown. It’s tied with Uruguay for the most Copa América titles (15 each). Indeed, Argentina are also the reigning World Cup champions. With players including all-time great Lionel Messi, Emiliano Martinez, Enzo Martinez, Alexis Mac Allister, and Rodrigo De Paul, they’ll certainly take some stopping. Brazil look the most likely to challenge while Uruguay is another team expected to do well.
