Watch the France vs Albania Live Stream with Sling TV
No doubt, Sling TV is the best way to watch Euro 2016 matches online – and certainly the best way to watch the France vs Albania stream. In fact, Sling is generally the best way to watch live TV if you don’t have cable.
This match, along with the majority of the Euro 2016 tournament, will be hosted by ESPN (and ESPN Deportes for Spanish coverage). And, luckily, Sling TV offers ESPN in its basic package, and also offers ESPN Deportes as part of the Best of Spanish TV package. You can read all about Sling TV in our review here, but for now, here are some key features.

Watch France vs Albania Online with PlayStation Vue
Another solid way for cord-cutters to watch the France vs Albania live stream is to use PlayStation Vue. Like Sling TV, PS Vue offers many popular TV channels, without a cable subscription.
Vue has 3 different packages, ranging in size from 55+ channels to 100+ channels, and in price from $30 a month to $45 a month. All the packages include ESPN, so when it comes to streaming France vs Albania, it doesn’t really matter which package you choose. Get the full details in our PlayStation vue review.
While Vue kills it in the channel department, offering more than even Sling TV, it lacks in some other areas. For instance, mobile viewing is restricted with PS Vue, meaning you can really only use it at home. Also, the only devices that currently support Vue are iOS devices, Chromecast, Amazon Fire TV, and PlayStation consoles. There’s also no special deals going on right now, but Vue does offer a free 7 day trial.
If you live in the UK, you’re in luck. Use the BBC iPlayer or ITV Hub apps. Outside the UK, you could use a VPN to change your IP and then view the streams on those players. However, some view this as an ethical gray area.
