Are you a Eurovision fan and don't want to miss a single festival gala? If you have to work and you are not in front of the TV or you live in another country, it can be a problem. Something that luckily we can solve if we have our mobile at hand. In today's post we will see various methods available to watch Eurovision online from the smartphone, and of course, free.
How to watch the galas of the Eurovision Song Contest 2019 (semifinals and grand final) online from Android
To achieve our goal we are going to pull from several available sources. Like all years broadcasting rights in Spain fall on Televisión Española, a channel that broadcasts live and open the contest that this 2019 is held in Israel.
Next, we show you how to watch TVE programming online from Android and the odd official app that also allows us to watch the festival live over the Internet.
Method 1: Install the official Eurovision app
The Eurovision Song Contest has its own app. From her, we can see everything that happens live, follow the semifinal galas and of course, also the grand final, live and direct.
We are facing the application indicated for true fans of Eurovision, since the app it also allows you to participate in voting. In addition to that, it has a lot of information about the participants, videos and reports with all the ins and outs of the contest.Download QR-Code Eurovision Song Contest Developer: tell me GmbH Price: Free
Personally, I have been installing the app for a couple of days and it has not given me any problems, but it seems that there are quite a few users who are not too satisfied with the application. If that is your case, do not be alarmed: there are other alternatives.
Method 2: Use TVE's free IPTV service
If you are regular followers of this blog, surely this sounds like IPTV services to watch live TV from your mobile. We are talking about taking advantage of the free Internet broadcast that television networks carry out to watch TV from the KODI app.
In this case, what we are going to do is configure the KODI player to capture the TVE signal and thus be able to follow the gala from our Android.
- Download the KODI app from the Play Store (HERE).
- Download the IPTV list (file in M3U8 format) of open Spanish DTT channels (Github Repository).
- Upload the list of IPTV channels we just downloaded to KODI. To do this, open KODI, and follow the steps indicated in this other tutorial HERE.
Once we have loaded the list of IPTV channels we will be able to see all the free TV in Spain. Among them, Antena 3, Telecinco, Cuatro, La Sexta, and of course TVE1 and TVE2: the 2 channels that broadcast the Eurovision Song Contest 2019 live.
Method 3: Download the RTVE app a la carte
For those who find this IPTV too complicated, nothing more advisable than installing the RTVE app on demand. From here we can access live the Spanish Television and Spanish National Radio channels from our Android mobile or tablet. Definitely, the easiest way to watch TVE1, TV2, Teledeporte and Canal 24 hours.
Although we cannot vote as in the official Eurovision app, here the app seems to be much more stable. A good example of this is that it has a 4.0 star rating and more than 1 million downloads on Google Play. This is probably the most reliable solution of the 3 that we have mentioned.Download QR-Code RTVE alacarta Developer: RTVE Interactive Media Price: Free
