In this quick and easy guide I’m going to show you how to watch the Champions League Final 2017 live online for free from anywhere in the world with English commentary.
If you don’t have an expensive cable subscription with a TV station that is streaming the Champions League 2017 final such as BT Sport in the UK or BeIN Sports in the USA then you will be disappointed that you can’t watch all the action.
The good news is there is a simple way you can watch the final live online from anywhere in the world on an official stream by using a service called a VPN.
So let’s find out how you can watch the Champions League Final 2017 live online from anywhere in the world.
How to Watch Champions League Final 2017 Live Online
The Champions League Final 2017 is being shown live for free by BT Sport on YouTube.
If you try to visit the live stream outside of the UK then you’ll be faced with a message similar to the one below blocking you from watching.
The YouTube stream knows you’re not in the UK so the solution is to get a service called a VPN that allows you to alter your online location.
With a VPN you can change your location and appear in a country other than the one you’re really in.
Using a VPN you can change your online location to the UK and so when you visit the BT Sport YouTube stream you won’t see the block message like above but instead you’ll be able to watch the Champions League Final 2017 live online no matter where you are in the world.
Finding a fast and reliable VPN service can be time consuming so below I’ve rounded up the best and also put together a little step-by-step tutorial to help you. You’ll be watching the Champions League Final 2017 in no time!
Where to get a VPN
A quick search of Google with throw up thousands of different VPN options and picking the right one can be hard.
I’ve tested a large selection of them and found that IPVanish offered the best service.
I’ve put together my three favourite services below. All you need to do is click on one, visit their website and sign-up. Once you’ve signed up keep reading below to find out how to use the VPN service to watch the Champions League Final 2017 live online.
A good VPN service should cost under US$10 per month. If you only want to watch the Champions League Final then you won’t need more than a month service.

How to use the VPN
Once you’ve signed up to a VPN service you need to download the correct software or app for your device.
