How to Watch Euro 2016 Live Stream for Free from anywhere?
Filmon is a collection of terrestrial channels from around the world including BBC One and ITV. We just tested BBC One and ITV on Filmon and it works great in SD (yes, without paying a penny). If you want to live stream in HD, you might have to pay a small fee.
For some reason if Filmon doesn’t work for you, there are some alternatives, just not as easy though. It involves using one of the Free VPN services. But then free VPN services are mown to be unreliable and/or have limited bandwidth to stream with. So, we would suggest you to go for a premium VPN service like ExpressVPN or go for a dedicated service like Unlocator.
Once you have a VPN or Unlocator, you can download BBC iPlayer or ITV Hub to live stream Euro 2016 matches for free. Or else, these websites of TV channels across Europe will also be live streaming Euro 2016 matches, so use the IP of respective countries and proceed as before.
