Rome vs Lazio in the live stream: Can you watch the game for free?


With a place in the top four still within reach, Roma host Lazio at the Stadio Olimpico today for another edition of the Rome derby. It's always very exciting when these rivals face off against each other and this one should be no different – especially given both teams' current position in the Serie A table.

If you live in the United States, the game (start time 12:00 p.m. ET) is available to watch exclusively on Paramount+. Despite this exclusivity, there are actually three different ways to watch a live stream of the game.

Of highest importance

In the United States, every Serie A game will be broadcast live on Paramount+. While the occasional game will make its way to CBS Sports Network, the vast majority, like this one, will only be available on Paramount+.

Luckily, your live stream options appear to be limited, but there are three different ways to get Paramount+ for free.

The first, of course, is through Paramount itself. There are two different plans, but the simplest, “Essential,” is all you need to watch Series A. It normally costs $6 a month, but there's a seven-day free trial, so you can try it out for a week – and watch today's Derby della Capitale – before you have to pay anything.

If you're an Amazon Prime subscriber or starting a 30-day free trial of Prime, you can also get Paramount+ through Amazon Prime Channels. It's the same live and on-demand content, same monthly price, and same free trial length. You just look on Amazon's app or website instead of Paramount's.

Finally, DirecTV Stream is a live TV streaming service designed to replace cable. But it also offers various streaming services as add-ons, including Paramount+ with SHOWTIME (this is just the more expensive plan), and any of these services can be included in your five-day free trial. You can then go to the Paramount+ website or app, log in with your DirecTV Stream credentials, and watch the game.

If you're outside the US, you can still watch the game on Paramount+, Amazon Prime or DirecTV Stream if you're also using a virtual private network (VPN). Among other things, a VPN can hide your location via your IP address and connect you to a server in the United States so you can only watch US content while abroad.

NordVPN is reliable, fast, and very easy to use, so we would use it for any type of live sports streaming. There's no free trial, but there is a 30-day money-back guarantee, so there's no loss if you change your mind at any time within your first month.
