The momentum will keep going for one of these teams, and the match will be on the air stateside on ESPN at 3PM Eastern, as well as on ESPN Deportes (in Spanish). I have good news for cable cutters who want to watch the Italy vs Ireland stream legally. They can. Here’s how.
Watch The Italy vs Ireland Live Stream On Sling TV
The best way to watch Italy vs Ireland online is by subscribing to Sling TV. Their best of Live TV package includes ESPN, ESPN2, and over 20 other channels. Their best of Spanish TV contains, among other networks, ESPN Deportes. The Best of Live TV is just $20 a month for 20+ channels, and The Best of Spanish TV is just $5 additional.
But I’m burying the lead, here. You can try it for nothing, as Sling TV gives you a free 7-day trial. Or, you can try it with a Free Roku 2, because they will send you a voucher for one (a $70 value) if you buy 3 months in advance, which is just $60. You can try it without a contract because Sling TV does not have any of those; you can cancel anytime.
And you can try it on T-Mobile, and I really think you should. Because if you sign up for Sling TV via T-Mobile, you’ll get 30% off, so it’s just $14 a month instead of $20. You still get your free trial and you can still cancel anytime. And you can try it worry-free, because thanks to T-Mobile’s “Binge On” promotion, the stuff you watch on Sling TV via T-Mobile devices does not count against your data cap.

PlayStation Vue Lets You Watch Italy vs Ireland Online
PlayStation Vue is another fine option for checking out the Italy vs Ireland stream. They have three packages (Core, Access and Elite), and they all have over 55 channels. In fact, Elite brings you over 100 channels. All three packages, however, include ESPN, so any which way you roll, you can still watch the Italy vs Ireland live stream. The packages start at $29.99 a month.
PlayStation Vue is available nationwide, but it’s especially great if you live in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Dallas, Chicago, Philadelphia, Miami, or New York. Because then you will also get your local Fox, CBS, NBC, and ABC affiliates live. If you don’t live in one of those places, fear not: You can still see national programming from those networks on demand the next day (except CBS).
PlayStation Vue (review here) works on the following devices: PS3, PS4, iPhone, iPad, Chromecast, and Amazon Fire TV products. However, for mobile viewing, it only works on iPhone and iPad, and even then, only with severe restrictions.
What If I Don’t Live in the US?
Located outside the US? While the options listed above will not work for you, you still have ways you can live stream Italy vs Ireland. If you’re the UK, use the BBC iPlayer or ITV Hub apps to stream the match. For those in other countries, we’ve seen it suggested that you could use a VPN to change your IP address to the UK and then use one of the two players to stream the game.
