In Brazil from June 14 to July 7, 2019, the Copa America tournament will determine the continental football champion of the Americas. Several websites and apps will live stream Copa America live online, but in order to secure broadcast rights, all of them are region-locked to specific countries. Depending on what country you’re in, Copa America live stream availability and costs vary.
In most cases, however, you can bypass location restrictions with a VPN. Short for Virtual Private Network, a VPN encrypts your internet connection and routes it through a middleman server in a country of your choosing.
For example, if you want to stream Copa America live from ESPN+, a US-only streaming service. ESPN blocks anyone who attempts to watch from another country. But by connecting to a VPN in the USA, you can bypass the block and access the stream.
Best VPN to watch Copa America live online from anywhere
My top recommendation is ExpressVPN. With servers in 94 countries, it gives you the most options to choose from. All you have to do is sign up, download and install the app, run it, and select the server you want to connect to. After a few moments, you can easily and safely watch Copa America online from abroad.
Once you’ve signed up, the process is simple:
- Download and install the VPN app for your device.
- Open the app and select a location that matches your streaming source.
- Click the Connect button.
- Open your preferred streaming app or website and start watching!
Note that not all VPNs work with all websites and apps, so be sure to test your VPN ahead of time while the money-back guarantee is still in effect. ExpressVPN has a 30-day risk-free guarantee, so you’ll have plenty of time to take it for a test drive.
Where to watch Copa America 2019 live online
Here is where to watch Copa America 2019 live online in the US, UK, Canada, Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Chile, Ecuador, Peru, Uruguay, Venezuela, Paraguay, and Bolivia. Remember that if you are not in the correct country, you can still unblock streams from abroad with a VPN.
ESPN+ is the sole rights holder for English-language commentary in the USA this year. This standalone streaming service costs $4.99 per month or $49.99 per year, and comes with a 30-day guarantee. A cable subscription is not required. Note that if you’re using a VPN, you should watch on a desktop web browser. A VPN won’t work with the Android or iOS ESPN+ apps. Portuguese also available.
Telemundo is broadcasting Copa America in the US with Spanish commentary. You can get Telemundo as part of a TV streaming bundle from Fubo.tv, which costs $55 per month and comes with a 7-day free trial.
Premier Player is a UK-exclusive streaming service where you can watch the entire Copa America tournament live online. Standalone streaming subscriptions start at £9.99 per month or £99.99 for one year. On the downside, there’s no free trial.
Existing Sky TV subscribers can log in with their cable provider details to access Premier Player free of charge.
NOW TV is another TV streaming service that includes Sky Channels that will broadcast Copa America.
TSN owns the broadcast rights for Copa America in Canada. If TSN is part of your cable subscription, you can log in to TSN Go/TSN Direct through your cable provider for free. Unfortunately, there’s no cable-free cord cutting option in Canada that I could find.
TV Publica might also have some free live coverage on its website but I couldn’t confirm this.
SporTV will live stream Copa America through the SporTV Play, a.k.a. Globosat Play. A cable provider is required to sign up. I haven’t found a standalone streaming option for Brazil yet.
Televisa, TV Azteca, and TDN seem to be the broadcast rights holders in Mexico, although I’ve also seen Sky HD and DirecTV listed. It looks like fans in Mexico can watch Copa America online through the websites of these channels with a cable provider login, but I can’t confirm this.
Colombia, Chile, Ecuador, Peru, Uruguay, and Venezuela
If you have a cable subscription in any of these countries, DirecTV Play Deportes allows you to watch Copa America live online for free. Unfortunately, there’s no cord-cutting options that don’t require a cable provider login.
Paraguay and Bolivia
If Tigo is your cable provider, you can live stream Copa America on the Tigo Sports app for iOS and Android.
Germany and Japan
DAZN will show all matches of the Copa America live online in Germany and Japan. It costs 9.99 Euros per month and comes with a 1-month free trial, so you can watch the entire Copa America for free and cancel afterward. DAZN is available in several countries, but only the German version will show the Copa America. DAZN is tough on VPN users, but we’ve had some success accessing DAZN Germany with ExpressVPN.
Australia, New Zealand, and France
Alternatively, BeIN Sports can be bought as part of an internet TV bundle through Sling TV or fubo TV.
