It’s been a long, long wait for Northern Ireland football fans: 30 years years since they qualified for a major tournament. That tournament was the World Cup. This is the first time they have ever qualified for the Euros, and they have a tall order in their match against a far more big-tournament-seasoned Polish squad. If you’re looking to learn how to watch the Poland vs Northern Ireland live stream, this is the guide for you!
The match will be on ESPN and ESPN Deportes Sunday, June 12th at noon Eastern. Don’t want to pay for cable or satellite to watch the Poland vs Northern Ireland live stream? No problemo; we will show you how to cut the cord and watch the match.

Watch The Poland vs Northern Ireland Live Stream On Sling TV
One way to watch the Poland vs Northern Ireland stream is through Sling TV. For starters, they have a “Best of Live TV” package that includes ESPN and so, so, so much more, such as ESPN2, CNN, TBS, and 20 more channels, all for $20 a month. But they also have extra services you can sign up for, one of which is Best of Spanish TV. So if you prefer to watch the Poland vs Northern Ireland stream on ESPN Deportes, pony up just an extra $5 a month for that. Either way, you get a 7-day free trial.
Had your eye on a Roku for awhile? Now hear this: If you sign up and pay in advance for 3 months of Sling TV (that’s $60), they will send you a voucher for a FREE Roku 2 ($70 value). No strings attached – you can still cancel anytime and there’s still no contract to tie you down.
Are you a T-Mobile customer? If not, I suggest you become one in short order. Sling TV (review here) has hooked up with T-Mobile to allow their customers to watch Sling TV’s Best of Live TV package (that’s the one with ESPN) on their T-Mobile connected devices for 30% off. So instead of $20 a month, it’s around $14 a month, and you can binge-watch as much as you like, because Sling TV is exempt from T-Mobile data caps. Now you can watch Poland vs Northern Ireland online in style.
PlayStation Vue Lets You Watch Poland vs Northern Ireland Online
Another way to watch the Poland vs Northern Ireland live stream is on PlayStation Vue via your PS3, PS4, Chromecast, iPad, iPhone, or Amazon Fire TV product. Their packages start at just $29.99 a month, ESPN included, and they really blow the other services out of the water in terms of number of channels. Their Elite tier in particular gives you over 100 to choose from.
One thing to keep in mind, however, is that PlayStation Vue is really not for mobile viewing. You have to watch it at home (or wherever your Vue account is based, such as your office) with the exception of some very limited service on iPhone and iPad.
But residents of New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, Dallas, Philadelphia, and Miami have an extra reason to consider PlayStation Vue, because in those markets, Vue carries the local affiliates of NBC, ABC, CBS, and FOX live. The rest of the country still gets those networks’ national programs (sans CBS) one day later on demand. Find out more here.
If you’re located in the United Kingdom, you can stream the tournament with the BBC iPlayer or ITV Hub apps. Otherwise, you’re only option is to use a VPN to change your IP. Then you can stream on one of those players. That being said, the ethics behind doing so are questionable.
