Euro 2016 Watch Online Portugal Wales

It’s semi-finals time in France, where four teams are looking to reach the final match on Sunday to get a shot at winning the UEFA Euro 2016 cup. Portugal will face Wales on Wednesday, with Germany taking on the host nation on Thursday. With just three games left in the championship, you’ll probably want to watch them as they promise to offer some great football.

So how do you stream the action online?

The Portugal vs. Wales game starts at 9:00 PM CET, or 3:00 PM EST, and it’s a must-see game. Football fans know very well that this is a Ronaldo vs. Bale confrontation. The two stars are teammates at Spanish football club Real Madrid, and it’ll be a joy to see them face off in what should be an exciting matchup.

We have already told you how to stream all 51 Euro 2016 games, from June 10th to July 10th, on your Internet-connected TV, computer or handheld device. There are legal ways to do it, many of them offering you free-of-charge solutions, as well as illegal ways, which are also free but might come with unwanted side-effects.

The legal ways include either obtaining access to logins to the WatchESPN app (from friends and family who still have cable) or getting a Sling TV or PlayStation Vue subscription that includes access to UEFA Euro 2016 online streaming.

You can also watch the games online by selecting a TV network that streams them in a certain region. Examples include BBC and ITV in the UK, but you need access to a VPN service to fake your location and make these sites believe you’re a UK resident.

The illegal route – well, it’s mostly illegal for the websites that stream the games – is finding a site that streams the matches without permission or restrictions. You can probably find one very easily by Googling. It’s up to you, and we won’t provide a link to it.

But you’ll have to do it at your own expense and deal with whatever consequences come your way. You can expect ad pop ups, poor quality at times, and you’ll probably have to accept watching the game in a language that you might not understand.
