Watch the Belgium vs Ireland Live Stream on Sling TV
Sling TV is a very valuable service that will provide an easy way to enjoy this game live. You can watch the Belgium vs Ireland live stream on their “Best of Live TV” package which carries ESPN. The package is only $20 a month, and offered without a contract.
You’re probably not going to cancel after the Belgium vs Ireland stream though, because Sling TV (review) is just too fantastic. For just $20 a month, you get over two dozen cable stations from CNN and TNT to ESPN2 and IFC. They also have packages you can add on to your core package, such as “Best of Spanish TV” which runs just $5 a month and will allow you to watch the Belgium vs Ireland live stream in Spanish on ESPN Deportes.
But really, the greatest thing about Sling TV is their Roku deal. If you pay in advance for three months of service – in other words, $60 – they will send you a coupon for a free Roku 2 – in other words, $70.
No wait! No, the greatest thing about Sling TV is their T-Mobile deal. If you are a T-Mobile customer, then you get Sling TV for 30% off – so about $14 a month instead of $20 (you still get a free trial and can still cancel without penalty any time). But, you’re thinking, “Gee, I’ll only be able to watch Sling TV for a few hours before a reach my data cap and my speed starts getting throttled, right?” Wrong! T-Mobile’s “Binge On” program means you can watch Sling TV on your T-Mobile devices and it doesn’t count towards your data limits. So, indeed, binge on.
You can try Sling TV for free with their 7-day trial period.

Additionally, you can watch FOX, ABC, and NBC programming the day after it airs, on demand. Viewers in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Dallas, Chicago, Philadelphia and Miami can watch their local affiliates of those networks live; CBS too.
There are some restrictions with PlayStation Vue, namely, their mobile policies. You can’t watch PlayStation Vue on-the-go except, to a very limited extent, on iPhone and iPad. Find out more here.
If you live in the UK, the BBC iPlayer or ITV Hub apps are free for you to stream. Outside the UK, you would need a VPN to use those players. However, it’s up in the air as to whether or not that’s okay to do.
