In the UK, BT Sport will show the 2018 Champions League final both on TV and online through a free live stream, no subscription necessary.
If you live outside the UK but still want access to the live streams, we recommend using a VPN to connect to a server in the UK. This will mask your true location and assign you a UK IP address. Once connected, you can bypass the geo block and watch as if you live in the UK.
Once you have a VPN connection, you can utilize Kodi to watch the game live (more info below).

How to watch the 2018 Champions League final on Kodi
If you want to live stream the Champions League final on Kodi, you’re in luck. You won’t need any third-party add-ons; everything you need is located in the official Kodi add-on repository. You simply need to install the Youtube add-on and search for the BT Sport channel to access the stream.
Follow these instructions to install the Youtube add-on on Kodi 17 Krypton:
- Launch Kodi
- From the home screen, go to Add-ons
- Select the open box icon at the top of the left sidebar to Enter add-on browser
- Select Install from repository > Video add-ons > Youtube
- Select Install. When the add-on is ready, you’ll see a notification indicating the add-on is installed.
- Go back to Home > Add-ons > Video add-ons and select Youtube to access the add-on
From here, you can use the search function to find the BT Sport channel and the Champions League live stream.
Remember that Kodi users are subject to the same geographic restrictions as everyone else, which means you’ll need a VPN to change your IP address if you’re outside the UK. If your Kodi device supports your provider’s VPN app, then just install it and connect to a UK server before opening Kodi.
If you have an Android-based device without Google Play, you can still sideload the VPN app. For example, you can learn how to install a VPN on Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick in this tutorial.
If your device doesn’t support VPN apps at all, you’ll need to set up the VPN on an upstream device, such as your home wifi router or a virtual router. Most modern laptops have wifi cards that support the creation of virtual wifi routers, which is just a wifi hotspot broadcast from the laptop. Just connect your laptop to a UK VPN server, and then your Kodi device to the laptop’s wifi signal. We’ve got instructions on how to set up a virtual router on PC and Mac.
