Watch Italy vs Sweden Online with Sling TV
One way folks can watch the Italy vs Sweden stream without paying homage to the cable gods is with Sling TV. Sling TV’s “Best of Live TV” package includes ESPN, which will have the Italy vs Sweden live stream, and that package is a cool $20 a month with a 7-day free trial. If you prefer to watch the Italy vs Sweden live stream in Spanish, Sling TV has got you covered there too with their “Best of Spanish TV” add-on, which is just $5 a month and includes ESPN Deportes.
But did you know you can, in a sense, get the first three months of Sling TV for negative-10 dollars? Here’s how: Sign up and pay for three months of Sling TV service for $60, and they will hook you up with a free Roku 2, worth $70. You can still cancel anytime and keep the Roku 2.
But the deals don’t stop there. If you’re not a T-Mobile customer, I highly suggest you become one. Sling TV has partnered with T-Mobile to give their customers Sling TV for 30% off, or about $14 a month. The best part of the package is that, thanks to T-Mobile’s Binge On program, anything you watch on Sling TV through your T-Mobile devices doesn’t count against your data caps.

Watch the Italy Vs Sweden Live Stream on PlayStation Vue
Another solid option for watching Italy vs Sweden online is PlayStation Vue. All of their packages include ESPN, so you will be able to watch the Italy vs Sweden live stream. But the big hook for PlayStation Vue is the selection of channels. Their “Elite” package comes with over 100 channels, but their are more budget-friendly packages down to $29.99.
If you are a resident of New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas, San Francisco, Miami, or Philadelphia, then you have another reason to consider PlayStation Vue: live local channels. At least for NBC, ABC, Fox, and CBS. Viewers in other cities can still watch the national network shows of all of those networks save CBS, they just have to wait a day, when it will be available on demand.
PlayStation Vue (review here) is operational on PS3, PS4, Chromecast, iPhone, iPad, and Amazon Fire TV devices. But PlayStation Vue is NOT mobile. With the exception of very few options on iPhone and iPad, Vue live streaming only works at your home.
To watch in the United Kingdom, use the BBC iPlayer or ITV Hub apps. Outside the UK, you will need a VPN if you wish to access those streams. However, some people would consider this a moral gray area.
