How to watch Serbia vs England (Euro 2024)

Serbia and England get their Euro 2024 campaigns underway on Sunday, June 16 at 9 PM CET (8 PM GMT / 3 PM ET). The two sides will meet at FC Schalke’s Veltins Arena in Gelsenkirchen, Germany. With star players including Harry Kane and Jude Bellingham, England are favorites to win this Group C fixture but will be keen to avoid an upset. Don’t want to miss the match? You may need a VPN or Virtual Private Network to watch if you’re traveling abroad.

In this post, we’re only covering official sources for watching Serbia vs England. Although there’ll be plenty of unauthorized streams, they don’t make for an enjoyable viewing experience due to their low resolution and frequent lag and buffering. There’s also the risk of missing out on the match if the unlicensed stream is taken offline for violating copyright. Besides, there are multiple official streaming sources for watching Serbia vs England, many of them free.

Many of the streaming sources for Serbia vs. England are geo-restricted. When abroad, you’ll need a VPN to watch via your usual home streaming service.

How to watch Serbia vs England from anywhere with a VPN

With a VPN service, you can connect to a server in your home country and spoof your location. Your internet connection will be secured with encryption, and you’ll be able to bypass the geographic restrictions of streaming platforms that show Serbia vs England.

Here’s how to stream Serbia vs England using a VPN:

  1. Sign up with a quality VPN provider. We particularly recommend NordVPN although you can’t go wrong with Surfshark or ExpressVPN either.
  2. Download the VPN app that’s compatible with the device on which you plan to stream Serbia vs England.
  3. Open the VPN app and connect to a server in the country of the streaming service you’re accessing. This would be a server in the UK for BBC iPlayer, for example.
  4. Now visit your chosen streaming platform and select a live stream. The content should no longer be geo-blocked regardless of your actual physical location.
  5. If you are having trouble, clearing your browser’s cookies may resolve the issue. Don’t be afraid to try multiple servers in order to find an IP address that works.

Euro 2024 matches will be streaming live and this makes it a good idea to test your VPN with your chosen streaming service well ahead of time. That way, you have plenty of time to get in touch with your VPN’s support if you do need to troubleshoot any issues.


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 Euro 2024 with no restrictions for a month. This is enough time to watch the entire Euro 2024 tournament.

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.

Football fans in the UK can watch England take on Serbia on BBC iPlayer. Indeed, all Euro 2024 fixtures will be available to watch online for free, be it on BBC iPlayer or ITVX (STV Player in Scotland). Just remember that in order to watch content live or on-demand on BBC iPlayer, you’ll need to sign up for a free account. This requires providing a UK postcode (any UK postal code is accepted).

Due to the fact that BBC iPlayer is only accessible in the UK, you’ll need to connect to a VPN’s UK server for a UK IP address to stream its content from overseas. NordVPN works very well with BBC iPlayer as well as ITVX and even comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. As such, you can try it risk-free and request a full refund if it doesn’t meet expectations.

How to watch Serbia vs England on Australian TV

Optus Sport holds the rights to every Euro 2024 game in Australia, Serbia vs England included. Admittedly, that’s not ideal for those who are looking to watch Euro 2024 for free. Existing Optus Sport customers can watch at no added cost. Otherwise, if you’re an Optus customer but don’t yet have the sport package, you can add it for just AUD $6.99 monthly.

Not an Optus customer? Euro 2024 runs for one month so with Optus Sport’s contract-free option, you can watch every game for the cost of $24.99. Although Optus Sport is geo-restricted outside Australia, a VPN can help you get an Australian IP address for watching from anywhere.

In Canada, TSN will be showing every game from the Euro 2024 tournament. This requires you to have a cable TV subscription that includes TSN (in which case you need only sign in online to watch) or a CAD $19.99/month subscription. If you’re outside Canada on vacation, connecting to a VPN server in Canada and getting a Canadian IP address can allow you to continue streaming TSN.

Can I watch Serbia vs England abroad with a free VPN?

The chances of a free VPN working with streaming platforms showing Serbia vs England are slim. Free VPNs really don’t have many servers to offer. This means only a limited number of IP addresses shared by many users. These IP addresses are quickly blacklisted by streaming services, preventing you from bypassing content blocks. What’s more, free VPNs usually throttle your bandwidth too which makes for a low quality streaming experience.

Another concern is that free VPNs tend to lack the security required to keep your data safe. Traveling abroad often involves connecting to unsecured public wifi networks and this can leave you vulnerable to hackers and snoopers alike. A free VPN may not properly encrypt your data. What’s more, many free VPNs are known for logging user data in order to sell it to the highest bidder. If you don’t want to have to contend with these issues, a quality paid VPN is best.
