Where to watch live football in Nigeria?


Multichpice is a cable television network provider that serves Africa. It is domiciled in South Africa with offices all over the continent. In Nigeria, they provide two cable television platforms: DStv and GoTV.

DStv is more high-end. It comes with a dish which can be connected to multiple televisions and decoders to enable people to watch what they want. GoTV is a low-end cable platform that can only serve one television at a time. Both platforms host the same channels but have differing subscription rates.

To watch live football on Multichoice cable television providers, subscribe to packages with SuperSport and ESPN. However, you may need to pay for more than one SuperSport or ESPN channel if you want to watch all your favourite football leagues.

As a service, Amazon Prime Video does not offer football content in any form. However, Nigerian fans who are subscribed to Amazon Prime Video can look for Paramount+ among the channels it offers.

Partamount+ is unavailable in Nigeria but can be accessed via the use of a VPN. Once a subscription to the Paramount+ channel is activated via the Amazon Prime Video streaming platform, fans have a plethora of football content to enjoy.

Kwesé TV

Kwesé TV is a Zimbabwean cable television platform that serves Africa. Due to major competition from Multichoice, it is only available in Nigeria and a host of other African countries.

StarTimes is a Nigerian cable television brand with a range of entertainment and sports channels to choose from. One of the standouts of StarTimes is that it airs matches from the NPFL and the NNL, as well as matches from the German Bundesliga and a few other lower leagues like the Belgian League, where a number of Nigeria Super Eagles prospects like Gift Orban play. The other cable television channels in Nigeria only focus on the big leagues and this is why StarTimes could be more attractive to a pure football lover in Nigeria.
