the Italian Serie A

The 2022/23 Italian Serie A season starts on Saturday August 13 2022 and will run until June 4 2023. This is an earlier start date and a later finish date than usual due to the 2022 FIFA World Cup which will be held in Qatar from late November to mid December. Depending on your location, Serie A games may be region-locked. Below, we’ll let you know where and when to watch the Italian Serie A online from anywhere in the world.

By using a Virtual Private Network (VPN), you’ll be able to stream Serie A games from anywhere in the world. Italy might be the home of this league, but it’s far from the only place you can watch it. That’s because a VPN changes your IP address and makes it look as if you’re located in the country of the TV channel or streaming service you want to watch.

This post will only recommend official Serie A broadcasters. Unfortunately, high-profile sporting events like this almost always attract unlicensed streams. However, these are often taken down part way through for copyright violation, and video quality is usually pretty poor. With so many different ways to watch Serie A matches, there’s no need to use unofficial streams.

Serie A will only be shown on region-locked services. This means if you want to carry on watching your usual services while traveling abroad, you’ll need a VPN.

How to stream Serie A soccer abroad with a VPN

Never used a VPN before and unsure of how to get started? Just follow the steps below to unblock Serie A matches (and most other geo-locked content) from abroad.

Here’s how to watch Serie A online from anywhere using a VPN:

  1. Start by choosing a suitable VPN provider. We recommend NordVPN but Surfshark and ExpressVPN are strong, speedy alternatives.
  2. Download and install the VPN software. Most offer separate versions for Windows, MacOS, Android, and iOS, so make sure you get the correct version.
  3. Choose which of the official Serie A broadcasters below you’d like to use.
  4. Connect to a server in the appropriate location. For instance, you’ll need a US server to unblock Paramount+ or a British server to access BT Sport.
  5. Try loading video from your chosen site. It should load instantly but if not, try clearing your cookies and refreshing your browser.

Since many Serie A games start simultaneously, we recommend running through the steps above before kickoff time, if possible. This way, if anything goes wrong, there will still be time to get help from your VPN’s customer support team and you won’t miss the match.


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 Serie A with no restrictions for a monthgreat if you want to stream Italian soccer online during a trip abroad.

Where can I watch Serie A games online?

Some of the best football (or soccer) teams in the world compete in the Italian Serie A. As such, this league has fans all over the world. The good news is that with official broadcasters in more than 70 different countries, you can watch the Serie A from almost anywhere.


Watch Serie A games in the US

Move aside, ESPN; there’s a new rightsholder for at least the next three years. Instead, Paramount+ will be showing the entire Serie A tournament online. Better still, you can access every match on the base $4.99 USD per month subscription. This comes with a 7-day free trial. Notably, this service will provide English, Spanish, and Italian commentary.

Paramount+ is geo-restricted and only available in the US. However, with the right VPN, accessing it abroad is easy. Don’t have a VPN yet? No problem: NordVPN includes a 30-day money-back guarantee so you can try it for yourself, completely risk-free.


Watch Serie A games in the UK

In the UK, the only way to watch Serie A games online is on BT Sport. Existing TV subscribers can sign into the website or app and watch at no added cost. If you’d like to stream Serie A without cable, though, you’ll have to pay for the online pass; this costs £25 per month and unfortunately, doesn’t offer a free trial.

BT Sport is only normally accessible in the UK. Despite this, you’ll be able to use it from anywhere with the help of a British VPN server.


Watch Serie A games in Canada

FuboTV is now home of Italian Serie A matches in Canada. In fact, you can also use it to stream all Premier League matches. A monthly plan costs $24.99 CAD a month while you can save extra with quarterly ($59.98) and annual ($199.99) plans which work out at just $19.99 and $16.67 a month respectively.

While FuboTV is also available in the US and Spain, content varies by country. As such, you’ll need a VPN to watch FuboTV Canada when you travel overseas. This requires connecting to a server in Canada and getting a Canadian IP address.


Watch Serie A games in Australia

beIN Sports continues to be the network which has the rights to show Serie A matches live online in Australia. It costs $19.99 AUD per month. Alternatively, you could watch all of beIN Sports’ content on Kayo, which is $25 per month after a two-week free trial.

beIN Sports and Kayo both geo-lock their content, so you will have to be in Australia or have an Australian IP address to watch Serie A fixtures with these services.


Watch Serie A games in Italy

DAZN is home to 380 Serie A matches per season, 266 of which are exclusive to the streaming service. DAZN costs €29.99 per month, and comes with a 30-day free trial. There’s also the option to watch on Sky Sports which will show 114 matches per season in all. If you’re already a Sky Sports subscriber, you can watch online with the Sky Go app.

All of the above services are geo-restricted and only accessible from within Italy. However, if you connect to one of your VPN’s Italian servers, you can stream Serie A matches live, whichever country you’re currently in.

Other locations

The 2022/23 Serie A season is being broadcast in far too many countries to provide guides for all of them. However, a quick online search returns a detailed list of international broadcasters and should enable you to find a suitable local source no matter where you are.

Can I watch Serie A online with a free VPN?

While free VPNs can be tempting at first glance, they come with several major disadvantages. As a result, we advise against using one. First of all, these services have more users than their servers can support, so their speeds are often too slow for streaming live HD video, or indeed any video at all. Coupled with the fact that most major streaming services have blocked free VPNs entirely, the odds of you being able to watch Serie A games while using one are very slim indeed.

Choosing a VPN is always difficult, but finding a decent free VPN is even more of a challenge. You’ll have to avoid those simply looking to infect your device with malware, sell your bandwidth, or that will leak your data.

What does the Serie A 2022/23 schedule look like?
