PSG did claim a third straight title last season, yet the 2019/20 edition of the championship was like no other, thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic. Suspended on 13 March, Ligue 1 never returned, with PSG crowned champions on 30 April after the season was cancelled. Les Parisiens had a 12-point lead and a game in hand when they were awarded the title.
Now the 2020/21 season is here and in Australia, beIN SPORTS holds the broadcast rights. It shows the biggest games in the league live, so you can keep up by watching on TV or streaming matches to your favourite device.

How to live stream Ligue 1 matches in Australia
Aussie football fans can keep up with Ligue 1 thanks to beIN SPORTS. There are several ways to subscribe to this sports channel, whether you choose the pay-TV route or opt for a streaming service. Here's everything you need to know to live stream Ligue 1.
Live stream Ligue 1 with Kayo Sports
With coverage of over 50 sports from all over the world, Kayo Sports is the premier destination for Aussie sport enthusiasts. The platform's library includes all three beIN SPORTS channels, so you can keep up with Ligue 1 with minimal hassle. A Basic subscription will set you back $25 a month, while a Premium subscription costs $35 a month. The only difference is the Basic plan allows you to watch on two screens at the same time, while the latter supports three simultaneous streams.
In addition to its library of live and on-demand content, Kayo Sports offers a great, futuristic user interface, as well as several features that make catching up with sport a breeze. Users can watch up to four matches at once on the same screen with SplitView or familiarise themselves with figures and statistics thanks to Interactive Stats. Key Moments lets you jump right into the action that matters in selected matches. No Spoilers will keep the score hidden if you're running late and if you're short on time you can tune in for a Kayo Mini, which is a condensed version of a game delivering all the highlights in less than 20 minutes. Feel free to read our detailed Kayo Sports review for an in-depth analysis of how the service works.
Alternatively, new Kayo users get a 14-day free trial so you can just try it out with a Ligue 1 match day. The service is available on most devices including PCs/Macs, smartphones and tablets. If you're keen to watch on the big screen, you can do so via Android TV, Apple TV, Telstra TV, Chromecast and Samsung TV (2017 or later).
Live stream Ligue 1 matches with beIN SPORTS CONNECT
beIN Sports also operates its own streaming platform that gives you access to everything the channel has to offer. It's called beIN SPORTS CONNECT. It boasts many European leagues, including Ligue 1. Subscriptions cost $19.99 a month or $199.99 a year. You can watch on laptops or mobile devices and you get a two-week free trial to figure out if the service is right for you.
Watch Ligue 1 on TV with Foxtel iQ
beIN SPORTS is part of the Foxtel iQ Sports HD pack, which costs $29 a month. You also have to sign up for the Foxtel Plus package at $49 a month, blowing the minimum total cost out to $74 a month.
Subscribers get to enjoy the iQ4, Foxtel's most advanced set-top box. It allows you to watch content in 4K and record live TV if on-demand Ligue 1 content isn't really your thing.
Besides the ability to watch sport on television, Foxtel also lets subscribers stream events to their laptops or mobile devices with the Foxtel GO app. The app is free for all users. Foxtel iQ deals are always available, so make sure to check the telco's website to see if you can save on fees when signing up.
Live stream Ligue 1 with Foxtel Now
Alternatively, you can live stream Ligue 1 matches via Foxtel Now. The service lets you watch Foxtel channels live and enjoy content on demand, all via the Internet. There are no contracts involved, so you can cancel your subscription at anytime.
New users get a 10-day free trial. To be able to watch beIN SPORTS you will need the Sport pack, a premium offering priced at $29 a month. This means that you have to already be subscribed to Essentials to be able to add Sport to your subscription. Essentials costs $25 a month and offers several Lifestyle and Pop channels. The total cost, therefore, is $54 a month (which includes HD).
Foxtel Now is compatible with PCs/Macs and smartphones/tablets. Or you can watch content on TV via Chromecast/AirPlay, the Foxtel Now box, Sony Android TVs, PS4 and Telstra TV.
Watch Ligue 1 with Fetch TV
All three beIN SPORTS channels are available on Fetch TV as a special interest channel pack. The pack costs $19.99 a month on top of your regular subscription. How much you'll end up paying in total will depend on whether you get your Fetch box through a broadband provider or buy it outright.
