If you’d like to watch the International Champions Cup online, keep reading to learn how.
Luckily, you will not need cable in order to enjoy an ICC live stream. In fact, nowadays it’s quite simple to watch an International Champions Cup live stream from the comfort of your home, or even on-the-go on your mobile device. And you won’t want to miss the 2016 tournament, with teams like Manchester United, Real Madrid, Barcelona, Liverpool and more headlining. Below, explore the best ways to watch ICC online this year.
Sling TV Gives You International Champions Cup Live Stream
Without a doubt, the best way to stream ICC 2016 without cable TV is to use Sling TV. This popular cable alternative service is a lifesaver for folks who have recently cut cable, offering 25+ great channels and giving you an International Champions Cup live stream for only $20 a month – and with no contract.
The 2016 International Champions Cup will be hosted by the ESPN family of networks. All games will air live on either ESPN, ESPN2, or ESPN3, and all games will also be broadcast in Spanish on ESPN Deportes. Luckily, Sling TV offers ALL of these channels in their basic package (with the exception of ESPN Deportes, which is available as part of an add-on package). Also, note that ESPN3 is made available through the WatchESPN app. You’ll simply have to use your Sling TV login credentials to access the app to watch the ESPN3-hosted games; both ESPN and ESPN2 are offered directly by Sling TV.
So, that means for $20 a month, you can sign up for Sling Orange, the basic package, and watch ICC online for the ENTIRE tournament. Plus, you’ll enjoy 20+ other great channels, including AMC, CNN, TBS, TNT and many more. See the full Sling TV channel list for details.
If you’d rather watch the ICC online in Spanish, simply add on the Best of Spanish TV package for an additional $5 a month, giving you access to ESPN Deportes (and a lot more!)
You can catch an International Champions Cup live stream on most major streaming devices, including Roku, Chromecast, Xbox One, smart TVs, Apple TV, mobile devices, computers and more.
And, for a limited time, Sling TV is offering a number of very generous deals, including:
- Access ICC streaming free for a week with the Sling TV free 7-day trial!
- Sign up for 3 months in advance and get a FREE Roku 2 (a $70 value!)
- Sign up for 3 months in advance and get $60 off an Apple TV!
- T-Mobile customers get an exclusive 30% discount off Sling TV (so just $14 a month!)
If you’re still on the fence, you might as well try the trial and enjoy International Champions Cup streaming free for an entire week. If after the trial you decide not to keep the service, it’s super easy to cancel.
Use PlayStation Vue to Watch ICC Online
Another super simple way to stream International Champions Cup online is to use PlayStation Vue. Like Sling TV, this service offers both ESPN and ESPN2, and also offers ESPN3 via the WatchESPN app. So, in terms of the ICC 2016 coverage they offer, the two services are the same.
With that being said, there are some downsides to Vue. The first of which is the price – starting at $30 a month, Vue is significantly more expensive than Sling TV. They also don’t offer any special sign up deals, although they do have a free trial. Vue also doesn’t work on as many devices; you’ll need to have a PS3/PS4, Chromecast, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, or iOS/Android device in order to use the service to watch International Champions Cup live stream.
On the other hand, Vue has more channels, with packages starting from 50+ channels ranging to 100+. So, there are certainly pros and cons. Overall, Sling is a better option, but Vue is a good option for catching the ICC live stream as well. Our PlayStation Vue review has all the details.
