Eurosport is one of the leading sports networks in Europe. It is a great platform where sports enthusiasts can get the ultimate sports experience in award-winning coverage.
The network airs all sports, including Olympic games, football, cycling, tennis, winter sports, live snooker, figure skating, handball, basketball, and volleyball.
But because of its premium content, Eurosport charges a monthly fee. If you are wondering whether or not to pay for its premium content, this Eurosport review covers 5 things you should know.
Eurosport review: Top 5 things to know before signing up
Before signing up for Eurosport, you must understand the following:
1. It offers both Eurosport and Eurosport Player
Generally, Eurosport is a sports service available on the website and mobile app. It offers free access to news, articles, scores, podcasts, and highlights of your favorite sports events.
Content on the website is free, but you must have a subscription to access live and on-demand streaming of all its channels.
On the other hand, Eurosport Player is a sports service accessible from any device, including web, mobile, Smart TVs, and tablets.
It hosts all streaming services offered by Eurosport. You can access Eurosport and Eurosport Player with the same subscription.
2. Eurosport does not have a free trial directly
Before you sign up for a Eurosport account, the first step is to choose a package. Each package is priced differently.
Noteworthy, Eurosport does not offer a free trial when you sign directly through its website. You have to pay a fee to continue streaming.
But that does not mean you cannot get a free trial to stream your favorite sport on Eurosport.
Simply sign up for a Eurosport Player account directly via the app or Amazon Prime Video to enjoy a free trial.
Note that Eurosport on Amazon Prime is only available for users in the United Kingdom. Prime Video Channels are available as an add-on to Amazon Prime.
Therefore, you can enjoy free live streaming on Eurosport Player if you buy it as an add-on to your Amazon Prime subscription.
3. You can watch Eurosport with AirPlay, Chromecast, or Fire TV Stick
- Your Fire TV, Chromecast, or AirPlay device must be on the same Wi-Fi connection as your streaming device (mobile or tablet).
- You can control the video playback from your streaming device (hand-held device)
Although pairing is necessary to stream Eurosport content, it is not available from the Eurosport app, even if you have a paid subscription.
Instead, you will have to use the Eurosport Player app to pair your devices.
Furthermore, your login credentials will work for both Eurosport to watch news and streaming and Eurosport Player to stream only.
4. Eurosport has five passes to follow different sports events
Eurosport offers five passes, each with a specific function that you can sign up for to watch a sports event. The passes and their functions are:
Eurosport Day Pass
The Eurosport Day Pass gives users access to live and on-demand Eurosport content for 24 hours.
Eurosport Event Pass
The Eurosport Event Pass gives users access to either one or more specific sporting events. In other words, you can use it to buy a single match or tournament.
Eurosport Monthly Pass
The Eurosport Monthly Pass is what many people prefer. It is best for people that want to watch multiple sports events without limitations.
Once you subscribe to it, you will access all Eurosport Player content, live and on-demand.
Eurosport Season Pass
The Eurosport Season Pass is another unique product from the network.
It is the best for the season sports fan who only wants to stream or watch live and on-demand an entire season of one or more types of sports.
For example, the sports events could be a specific football league, tournaments, or competitions.
Eurosport Annual Pass
The Eurosport Annual Pass gives users access to all Eurosport Player content, live and on-demand for the entire year.
Therefore, it is ideal if you are a sports fan who does not want to miss any sporting action.
Once you subscribe to it, you will watch any game available on the network or access all channels.
Understand that even if you have an active Eurosport Pass, the network allows you to line up a different pass to start when your current one ends.
For example, you can switch from the Day Pass to the Monthly Pass if the current event is long.
5. You can stream Eurosport content in Ultra HD
Eurosport content is available in Ultra HD.
However, you require a 60Hz TV compatible with HD streaming and a strong and steady internet connection speed of 25 megabits per second or higher.
