Where to Watch FA Cup in the USA
ESPN+ has the exclusive rights to live stream all matches of the FA Cup in the United States. Subscribers can watch FA Cup matches through the ESPN app. A subscription costs $5.99 per month.
How to Watch Round 5 FA Cup on Roku, Amazon Fire TV & Apple TV
The only way to watch the Round 5 of FA Cup is on ESPN+.
That’s a big change compared to years past.
You used to be able to watch matches on cable TV or live TV streaming services such as Hulu + Live TV. ESPN+ acquired the exclusive rights to the FA Cup as part of a multi-year deal that begins in 2021.
This is welcome news, even if you’re not a cord cutter, because the cost of watching FA Cup, Bundesliga and Serie A is now dirt cheap.
A subscription to ESPN+ is just $5.99 per month, less than a movie rental.
You can live stream matches with a Fire TV Stick, Roku or Google Chromecast with Google TV. A smartphone will work too.
You can sign up for a subscription and cancel whenever you like. There are no contracts or hidden fees. Your ESPN+ subscription upgrades your ESPN app with live soccer, college basketball and daily Major League Baseball games.
The FA Cup is one of the most exciting events capping English football. And this year is no different. COVID-19 may have cast a shadow over things, but it hasn’t stopped kicking off the third round.
This guide will break down how to watch the FA Cup without cable TV. You’ll need to live in the U.S. for this option to work.
Live Stream FA Cup on ESPN+
ESPN+ is a digital network that lives within the ESPN app. So you can easily watch live FA Cup games on a Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Chromecast, Apple TV, PS4, Xbox One and even a PC or smartphone.
If you already subscribe to Hulu or Disney+, you may want to consider getting the Disney+ bundle.
This option rolls together ESPN+, Hulu and Disney+ for $12.99 per month. You will save a little over 25 percent compared to subscribing to each service individually.
