Real Madrid-Barcelona 2010: LIVE TV ONLINE FREE

Thanks to La Sexta TV in Spain and TV3 CAT in Catalonia (yeah, Catalunya is not Spain), you can watch the “El Clasico” Real Madrid-Barcelona game free online.

Coverage starts at 1pm local time on laSexta and at 9:50pm on TV3 CAT but the “partido” starts at 10pm or 22:00 hours local time. For laSexta, that’s 4pm Eastern USA time or 9pm England time.

Regardless which you choose, BE SURE TO CONNECT EARLY in order to not be shut-out. Surely there will be a limited number of “ports” available for viewing, albeit thousands.

La-Sexta-El-Clasico-En-Directo-Abril-2010.jpgAs I said, Catalunya’s TV3 CAT (Televisió de Catalunya) is also broadcasting the Barcelona-Real Madrid game live online and for free – but broadcast in Catalán (regional language). From what I can watch online right now, LaSexta has the better video quality than TV3 CAT but on both you can make the video full screen.

On laSexta’s page broadcasting the Real Madrid-Barcelona game, if you’re already logged into Facebook, you can chat with others live about “El Clásico“. That’s true interaction! It’s all in Spanish, though.

Lionel André Messi, Carles Pujol, Andres Iniesta and others represent the FC Barcelona – “Barça” in the Estadio Santiago Bernabéu in Madrid tonight. Cristiano Ronaldo, Sergio Ramos, Kaka and team Real Madrid will have to be ready.

Frankly, I’m rather surprised this is not a Pay-Per-View (PPV) event. I guess “La Sexta” and TV3 CAT has paid BIG MONEY to broadcast it on free Live TV for and free online. Good for them and good for the football-loving public around the world.

Locally, Telemadrid is also televising the Madrid-Barcelona soccer game but it’s not clear to me if their Telemadrid SAT channel online will transmit it too or not.

One can also listen live in Spanish on Marca radio along with a number of other radio stations in Spain on MadridMan’s Spain Radio, TV, Music, and Movies page as well as on BarcelonaMan’s Barcelona Radio, TV, Music, and Movies page. I also just found this page which claims to broadcast the game online for free – but I don’t know how it works.

You should also get a glimpse of the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu stadium live via the Spain Webcams page, from atop the Torre Picasso.

I’m at a loss. For whom should I cheer? I love both Madrid AND Barcelona. I’m sure the better team will win, whomever it may be.

    Just want to say.. you can love both the teams for their football fine.. but you can be no true barca fan kid, if you ‘love’ both teams.
    Visca El Barca!!!

    I couldn’t agree with you more. As I said in this posting – if not in every one – I don’t even like fútbol/soccer but I’m always happy when either team does well.

    I think it’s super that it’s not a pay-per restricted situation. All the players have made history and Spain proud!
    How about a wine or beer for each? Enjoy!

      Thanks for your comment, Wendy! Yours is my first on the new blogging platform.
      I agree that it’s great when there aren’t the pay-per-view restrictions. SOMETIMES this happens on the big games but other times not, all depends if corporate sponsors want to foot the bill for advertising rights so that we “Sofa Jockeys” can watch the games for free.
      Saludos, MadridMan
