Whether you have cable or you’re a cord cutter, the only way to watch LaLiga — and by extension El Clásico — in the U.S. is on beIN SPORTS. The cable channel provides excellent coverage of the Spanish top flight, but the sad truth is that it’s almost impossible to find the network included in a basic cable TV subscription.
But fret not, we have some options here in America.
The most cost-effective way to watch El Clásico in the U.S. is to subscribe to Sling TV. No other cable TV provider gives you as many options for subscriptions as highlighted by Sling TV having nine different packages to choose from that include beIN SPORTS. Click here to sign up for Sling TV for just $5, with options for both English and Spanish viewing. Best of all, Sling TV offers a Watch Party experience to allow video chat with up to three friends and family during matches.
Other options to watch El Clásico include Fubo TV, which is excellent but far more expensive, Fanatiz, which is a smidge cheaper but we haven’t tested it out so we can’t vouch for it, and Vidgo, which is similar to FuboTV (slightly fewer channels, slightly cheaper).
