Watch Portugal vs Austria Online with PlayStation Vue
Sony’s new streaming service, PlayStation Vue, provides another easy and affordable way to watch the Portugal vs Austria live stream. For $30 a month, you can subscribe to Vue’s basic package, which offers an impressive 55+ channels, including ESPN and ESPN2.
Vue certainly does offer an impressive range of channels. The only downside is that it has a limited number of compatible devices. In order to use Vue, you’ll need to have either a PlayStation 3 or PlayStation 4 gaming console, a Chromecast, an Amazon Fire TV, or an iOS device. Also, keep in mind that mobile viewing is restricted via Vue, so you’ll have to watch at home for the most part. Our PS Vue review will explain in greater detail.
If you’re after more channels, and you have one of the devices that is compatible with Vue, this service provides a ton of value. However, Sling TV is still our top recommendation, due to its lower price, greater selection of compatible devices, and special promotions.
In the UK, you can use the BBC iPlayer or ITV Hub apps. Outside the UK you could use a VPN to change your IP to the UK and then use one of the two player. But not everyone agrees this is the right thing to do.
