Postponed for a year due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Euro football is still scheduled to take place from June 11 to July 11, 2021 and this time the event should not be postponed. On the program, 24 teams and 51 matches will be played in 11 European cities and as many countries. For those who have ants in their legs and will be on the move during this championship or who only have their smartphone and / or their tablet as the main screen, several solutions exist.
Which broadcasters and which applications to follow the Euro?
Three channels will broadcast the summer competition. TF1 and M6 will broadcast certain matches, but in order not to miss any confrontation, you will need to take out a beIN Sports subscription billed at 15 euros per month if you opt for the beIN Sports Connect (100% digital) non-binding option. Each channel will allow you to follow the matches from an application available on Android and iOS: 6play for M6, MYTF1 for TF1 and myCanal for beIN Sports (if the beIN Sports Connect formula since the two players have signed an exclusivity agreement).
Other applications include features that are not present on the three mentioned above. We think in particular of Molotov which gives access to TF1 and M6, and offers the possibility of resuming a program at the beginning, of pausing it, moving forward or backward. Note that rollback is also supported by myCanal. But for 3.99 euros per month for Molotov PLUS, the app allows you to record your program.
All these pretty people are consuming data. You must therefore first have a suitable mobile plan at the risk of ending up with a reduced speed and then blocked. Here are our recommendations to avoid unpleasant surprises and save money.
Which mobile plan to follow the Euro?
To take advantage of a fast connection and thus a quality video stream, we would be tempted to direct you to a 5G offer but the current coverage is clearly not worth that of 4G. And the speeds promised by the fifth generation of mobile networks are still far from being achieved. Without forgetting that it is financially more interesting to opt for a generous 4G offer in gigas. We have selected three generous gigas and accessible promotions:
Cdiscount Mobile 80 GB plan: the best offer over 6 months
Offered at 3.99 euros for 6 months then 16.99 euros, Cdiscount’s offer is undoubtedly the most attractive for those who just want a maximum of data to follow the event. You will then be free to cancel at any time since it is a non-binding package. It includes 80 GB for mainland France and 8 GB to spend from the European Union and the overseas departments. Cdiscount relies on Bouygues Telecom’s 4G network, credited with an average downstream speed of 40 Mb / s and an average rising speed of 10 Mb / s according to Arcep. Still according to the Electronic Communications Regulatory Authority, the operator covers 99% of the population and 91% of the territory.

NRJ Mobile 100 GB plan: the best offer over one year
The MVNO proposal is displayed at 9.99 euros for 12 months. After this period, you will be billed 19.99 euros per month. It includes an envelope of 100 GB including 10 GB for use in Europe and the DOM. NRJ Mobile also uses the Bouygues Telecom network.

Sosh 100 GB package: the best “unlimited time” offer with the best network
Having gigas is good, but a nice envelope associated with the most solid network in France is better. The Orange subsidiary allows you to have both with its package at 15.99 euros per month sold “without time limit”. In other words, its price is not likely to double after 6 or 12 months. The formula grants you 100 GB for mainland France, including 15 GB which can be used from Europe and the overseas departments. According to Arcep data, Orange provides an average downstream speed of 74 Mb / s and an average rising speed of 13 Mb / s. The incumbent operator covers 99% of the population and 92% of the territory. .

Note that the data of these three subscriptions can be spent for peer-to-peer but also for connection sharing (4G modem mode).
