What is Rai Italia?
Rai Italia is akin to CNN International from the Italian broadcasting channel. In fact, Rai called it Rai International when it launched in 1992, changing to its current brand in 2008. While it contains Italian content, it’s specifically developed for viewers around the world. It offers news, talk shows, documentaries, and dramas. But its sports coverage is what draws a lot of viewers in the U.S. Specifically, soccer fans who want to watch Italian soccer the way Italians do tune in.
How to stream Rai Italia live: Watch Serie A live streams
Both Fubo and Fanatiz carry Rai Italia as add-on options.
FuboTV started as a streaming service geared toward sports fans. It’s since evolved into a broadly-appealing option with entertainment and news options alongside its robust sports choices. FuboTV starts at $54.99 a month, and depending on the package, you can access as many as 180+ FuboTV channels. If you want Fubo to entertain you, Bravo, IFC, MTV, and VH1 are options even at Fubo’s most basic tier.
The Fubo channel list still includes plenty of sports, including the Fubo Sports Network, which has original programming mixing sports and humor. Fubo added the ESPN suite of channels in an agreement that also brought ABC and the Disney Channel. Pretty much every sports channel you could think of is available through Fubo, including BeIN Sports, CBS Sports Network, and TUDN.
You can get Rai Italia as an add-on for $7.99 a month.
Fanatiz is a streaming service created specifically for the soccer fan. It importantly carries La Liga and Ligue 1 action via BeIN Sports. (As soccer fans know, BeIN is essential yet absent from most of the big streaming services.) Fanatiz also carries Gol TV and TyC Sports, giving access to competitions like the CAF Confederations Cup, the Copa Libertadores, the Copa Sudamericana, and the Copa del Rey. Plus, it has additional content that will appeal to Boca Juniors and Real Madrid fans in particular.
Plus, there’s a daily pass option, so if you’re just trying to catch an El Clasico or Madrid Derby match, you can pay $4.99 and have access for a 24-hour period.
If you’re into Serie A, there’s a new package for you. Club Italia, for an additional $7.99 a month, gives you access to RAI Italia broadcast of Italy’s top-flight league the way Italians watch it. If you like what you’ve seen from Juventus, Inter Milan, Napoli, and the surprising Atalanta this season in Champions League, you can now see them week in and week out in Serie A via Fanatiz.
Fanatiz has also just come out with a package covering the Campeonato Brasileiro Série A, better known as the Brasileirão. For $7.99 a month, you can access Fanatiz-produced coverage of Brazil’s top-flight league, which is home to a number of rising stars in one of the world’s most soccer-loving nations.
