One of the better Group Stage Matchups in Euro 2016 is England vs Russia. Besides them both being in the top 30 of the FIFA world rankings and both coming off World Cup appearances, there might be extra bad blood between them – in an upset, Russia pipped England for the last Group E qualifying spot in Euro 2008. If you’d like to watch the England vs Russia live stream, read our guide to discover how!
The game will be on ESPN and ESPN Deportes at 3 Eastern Saturday, June 11th, and there’s a bevy of ways cord cutters can watch England vs Russia online. Learn how below.

Check Out The England vs Russia Live Stream on Sling TV
One option for cord-cutters not just for the England vs Russia live stream, but for all of their cord-cutting needs, is Sling TV.
Not only does Sling TV have two core packages (one of which carries ESPN and other great channels like TNT and IFC), but it comes with a 7-day free trial and you can cancel anytime. There’s no contract to sign. If you stick with it, it’s $20 a month (here you’ll find some more useful info).
Better still, you can get a Roku 2 for free with Sling TV. All you have to do is pay 3 months in advance, and boom – a coupon for a free Roku 2, a $70 value. A quick check of the math suggests you come out $10 ahead in that deal.
T-Mobile customers, listen up: You can watch the England vs Russia stream in style with Sling TV, because their partnership with T-Mobile means two things:
- 30% off Sling TV, so about $14 a month. Still no contract to sign, still a 7-day free trail.
- T-Mobile’s Binge On promotion lets you watch Sling TV without it counting against your data plan.
Prefer to watch the England vs Russia stream in Spanish, via ESPN Deportes? You can do that with Sling TV too, with their Best of Spanish TV option. It’s just $5 a month extra.
Watch England vs Russia Online On PlayStation Vue
Another option for watching the England vs Russia live stream is PlayStation Vue. PlayStation Vue carries ESPN and many, many, many more channels. It depends on which package you choose, of course, and those packages start at $29.99 a month, but if you want to splurge, you can get their “Elite” package, which brings you over 100 channels.
Additionally, viewers in seven cities (NYC, LA, Chicago, San Francisco, Miami, Philadelphia, Dallas) can also watch Fox, NBC, ABC, and CBS local affiliates live. Vue-ers in other cities can still see the network shows of the latter three networks the next day on demand.
Vue works on PS3 and 4, iPhone and iPad, Chromecast, and Amazon Fire TV, but it’s important to note that it’s not a mobile service and you won’t be able to watch Vue from outside your home (except for a few things on iPhone/iPad). Our PlayStation Vue review delves deeper into the details of the service.
Outside the US, the aboce options will not work. If you are located in the UK, you can use the BBC iPlayer or ITV Hub apps to watch pretty painlessly. However, if you aren’t in the UK they will not work for you. We’ve seen it recommended that you could use a VPN to change your IP address to the UK and then use for a UK stream. While questionable, it’s probably better than an illegal stream on an illegal streaming site.
