This post will show you the best HesGoal alternatives to watch live sports, including Premier League, Champions League, and other sports events. I will go through paid, cheaper, and free HesGoal alternatives to browse the content.
fNote: Since FireStick is the most popular streaming device out there, the better part of the article will focus on it. That said, you can use the mentioned official apps on any smart device you have.
HesGoal—one of the popular sports streaming websites in the UK—might get shut down in the near future. That’s because Premier League, UK’s biggest football phenomenon, has knocked on the doors of US courts, requesting the server provider Cloudflare to expose the owners of HesGoal.com. Before the authorities reach HesGoal, you should go through the alternatives below and continue watching Premier League and other sports content without any issues.
The Premier League is submitting a DMCA subpoena that arm-twists Cloudflare into revealing the identity of the HesGoal owners. Looking at the detailed subpoena, I could even see Premier League requesting the details of those using HesGoal to watch live football for free.
If everything goes as planned, the Premier League owners might get all the information they need and take legal action against HesGoal operators, as well as those streaming football matches via the free website.
We have seen a similar pattern in the past as well, where many IPTV subscribers in Italy faced fines and even possible jail time. You can avoid all this drama by using official apps from the list below.
Official apps are readily available on app stores, and it hardly takes a minute or two to install them on FireStick and other devices. If you are not comfortable paying for such streaming apps, I will list free options as well (make sure to read till the end).
Attention: Read before you continue
Governments and ISPs across the world monitor your online activities. If found streaming copyrighted content on your device, you could get into serious trouble. Currently, your IP is visible to everyone. I strongly recommend you get a trustworthy VPN and hide your identity so that your movie-viewing experience doesn’t take a bad turn.
I use ExpressVPN, the fastest and most secure VPN in the industry. It is very easy to install on any device, including Amazon Fire TV Stick, Smartphones, PC, macOS, iOS, and more. Also, it comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. If you don't like their service, you can always ask for a refund. ExpressVPN also has a special deal where you can get 3 months free and save 49% on an annual plan.

Best HesGoal Alternatives in the US
There are many streaming services in the US that let you watch sports content without cable. Among them, I have picked the top four options for you to watch football (soccer) matches on FireStick.
One of the advantages of using official apps is you get flawless streaming quality compared to HesGoal. After all, these apps thrive on streaming quality, so if they offered just an average experience, they would lose paid subscribers. You will definitely feel the upgrade in your streaming experience when switching from HesGoal.
I will start with the most affordable one and move to more costly options. Without further ado, let’s start the list with NBC’s Peacock streaming service.
Peacock costs only $4.99 per month. You get access to all the Premier League matches, including the Manchester derby, as well as NFL games, original NBC shows such as The Office, and more.
Peacock is available from the Amazon App Store. Download the app using the link below.

ESPN+ is a must-have offering from Disney. For $6.99 per month, you are looking at streaming F1, NFL, Tennis, IPL, and a lot more. ESPN+ also makes sense for boxing fans in the country.
ESPN+ doesn’t carry any live ESPN channels though. It’s strictly an on-demand service that comes with live sports content.

3. YouTube TV
YouTube TV is one of the best HesGoal alternatives out there. It’s pricey at $64.99 per month, but hear me out. The subscription comes with 85+ live TV channels, unlimited DVR storage, up to three simultaneous streams, and more.

fuboTV beats YouTube TV with 230+ live TV channels and comes at the same price of $64.99 per month. It has all the sports channels on the list to watch upcoming games on FireStick without cable. The DVR storage is set at 250 hours for the starter plan and up to 1,000 hours on higher plans.

Best HesGoal Alternatives in the UK
Even though Sky Sports and BT Sport are two juggernauts in the UK region, neither of them offers an official app on FireStick. You are either forced to sideload their apps or use the web version via the Silk browser.
Instead, if you’re a regular FireStick user, I would advise going with a Now TV subscription that comes with support for all the Sky Sports channels. Now TV has a native FireStick app.

If you are looking to ditch HesGoal, you are probably looking for a free alternative here. You can probably get a free trial from the likes of YouTube TV or fuboTV, but it will only last a week or two. If you are hell-bent on using a free streaming option, you need to explore third-party apps on FireStick.
Before I list them out, a word of caution: You should use ExpressVPN on FireStick to keep your location and activities private.
ExpressVPN has hundreds of servers around the world. While browsing content from the options below, you can turn on ExpressVPN on your FireStick and keep your identity hidden from your internet service provider and local government.
Without ExpressVPN, anyone with a legal order can see what you are watching and where you live, exposing you to legal troubles in the future. The best VPN on FireStick helps prevent such scenarios. Download ExpressVPN using the step-by-step instructions below.
Step 1: Subscribe to ExpressVPN HERE. It comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. Meaning, you can use it free for the first 30-days and if you are not satisfied with the performance (which is highly unlikely), you can ask for a full refund.
Step 2: Power ON your Fire TV Stick and go to Find followed by Search option.
Step 3: Now type “Expressvpn” (without quotes) in the search bar and select ExpressVPN when it shows up in the search results.
Step 4: Click Download to install the ExpressVPN app on Fire TV / Stick.
Step 5: Open the app and enter the login credentials that you created while buying the ExpressVPN subscription. Click Sign in.
Step 6: Click the Power icon to connect to a VPN server. That’s all. Your connection is now secure with the fastest and best VPN for FireStick.

Free Sports Apps and Kodi Addons
Free sports apps aren’t available from the Amazon App Store. You need to sideload them on FireStick.
We have detailed guides to sideload each of these apps on FireStick. So while you glance through the apps, make sure to install two or three apps on your FireStick.
Many users opt for the Kodi app on FireStick. The app alone won’t do anything for you, but you can install two or three of the best sports Kodi addons within Kodi, and you’ll be all set to stream HesGoal content for free.
Sports Streaming Websites
HesGoal is basically a sports streaming website. But there are many other capable alternatives out there. Cycle through the best sports streaming websites on FireStick, and you won’t miss HesGoal much.
Make sure not to share any personal or financial details on these websites. Some of the trackers can steal such information and put you in a compromised position. Once again, don’t forget to use ExpressVPN here. Any sports streaming website operator can get into trouble like HesGoal in the future, and you don’t need to be stuck in the middle of that legal battle.
I think IPTV services are the best alternative to HesGoal on FireStick. They come at a small monthly price, but you get much more in return. I’m talking about thousands of live TV channels, on-demand content, access to PPV events, and more.
With a looming legal threat over HesGoal and its users, it’s time to ditch the service and go with free and paid alternatives. This post listed the best HesGoal alternatives to watch live football matches for free, letting you continue your sports-viewing experience without cable. Share your thoughts in the comments!
