Much like the English Premier League and Spain’s La Liga, Italy has their own professional league called the Serie A. The league ranks number four out of all the European leagues. This season, the action begins on August 19th, 2017 and goes through May 20th, 2018. The twenty teams play each other twice, once home and once away, for a total of 38 games for each team. The Serie A is a great league to watch, as long as you have access. You can watch every match from anywhere in the world with a VPN.

We will take a look at a few ways to watch the matches from anywhere.
Sling TV – American website that gives you access to access to the NBC, ESPN, and BeIN Sports without a cable or satellite subscription. It requires a subscription to watch, and to sign up and enjoy, you need to be in the US, or be connected to a US server. If you haven’t tried it yet then you can sign up for a 7 day free trial.
Eleven Sports – International sports network that carries the games in Belgium. You can buy a league pass if you want to watch the games. You also need to be connected to a server in Belgium or live in Belgium.
BT Sport – Coverage for the Serie A in the UK. To watch, you must have a subscription and be in the UK (or connected to the a server in the UK).
SonySix – Indian sports channel that lets you watch the Serie A without a subscription. You will need to connect to a server in India to view the games (we tried watching with and without the VPN and it worked with a VPN).
Sky Sport – Italian version of Sky Sport, the matches will be shown on this channel. Viewing requires a subscription to Sky Sport and being located in Italy (or a server in Italy).
BeIN Sports – Though this channel is sold in packages and streaming services like Sling TV, you can enjoy the matches as long as you connect to a server in North Africa or the Middle East (we connected to servers in Egypt and Saudi Arabia, and both worked). The broadcast may be in Arabic, but it works for watching the games.
By using one of those options, you will be able to enjoy the Serie A matches. You can watch on a host of channels like the ones we just mentioned by using a VPN service. VPN providers like IPVanish and Private Internet Access host servers in countries around the world.
To clarify, there are several Football (Soccer for Americans) leagues in Italy. The Serie A is the top league and most prestigious in Italy. Serie A’s start began in the 1929-1930 season. Though it has not been around as some of the other leagues, the Serie A is extremely popular. Since those times, there have been 66 teams to compete in the 85 seasons. The only team to compete in all 85 seasons was Internazionale. However, two teams have competed in 84 seasons. Those teams are Juventus and Roma.
Juventus is the most successful team in the Serie A, with 32 championships. Other successful teams include Milan and Internazionale, both with 18 championships each. Those three teams have won the championship in almost 80% of the seasons. The most any other team has won was 9 championships.
