How do I watch LaLiga TV?

LaLiga TV is available via Premier Sports.

To watch it live you will require a Sky TV box, with packages starting at £5.99-a-month or £49-a-year.

A full Premier Sports package costs £11.99-a-month or £120-a-year.

How do I live stream LaLiga TV online?

If you do not have a Sky TV box, you will only be able to watch LaLiga TV online.

This can be done by purchasing the Premier Player, which is available for the prices listed above.

Can I watch LaLigaTV for free?

If you have a Sky Box, you can watch LaLiga TV via a free trial for the last two weekends of January, according to The Independent.

Standard rates will apply thereafter.

If you do not want to subscribe to LaLiga TV you can still watch every LaLiga match scheduled for Sunday 11am kick-0ffs free of charge on FreeSports.

What do I get with LaLiga TV?

Viewers of LaLiga TV will get to watch every LaLiga match except 3pm kick-offs (which will not be shown due to the UK TV blackout).

It will also include an unprecedented 26 hours of live programming every weekend, with all 20 clubs set to be covered equally.

Guillem Balague will present a monthly ‘Talking Football’ show which will feature long interviews with current and former Spanish footballers.

First up is Xavi, who has just been linked with the Barcelona job.

Balague told The Independent: “In England recently we’ve started to get more stories, tactics and trying to understand the game.

“But the biggest stories are always personality and controversy.

“In Spain we think we know a lot about football, so we try to make it more about how the game has been played.

“You get deeper interviews, more inside stories, than in England, where they want to run whatever is controversial.”

And in a new feature, players will appear in the studio to do interviews through hologram technology.

A lengthy list of pundits includes Terry Gibson, Gaizka Mendieta, Albert Ferrer, Nayim, Gus Poyet and ex-Barcelona, Swansea and Brighton player Andrea Orlandi. Former regulars on Sky’s Revista de La Liga show Graham Hunter and Guillem Balague.
