Football fans can potentially watch Lionel Messi live on TV after Reliance-backed Viacom 18 bagged the official broadcast rights for French Ligue 1 in Sri Lanka & India for the next 3 years.
Sports18, the flagship channel of Viacom18, will air Ligue 1 matches exclusively in the upcoming season along with select national and regional network channels. TV5 Monde also broadcasts select matches in India but they will only be telecasting only one game per week and it’s not confirmed whether it will be the PSG game every week. Ligue 1 will also be available for streaming through Voot and JioTV.
Listed below are the channel numbers of Sports18 in each satellite service provider in Sri Lanka, India, and the Indian Subcontinent:
|Dialog TV||Channels not available in Dialog TV|

Dialog TV currently doesn’t have this channel and we made a request to Dialog to add to their channels. They responded that they will share the suggestion with the respective team.
The Voot Select app and the Jio app will also live stream these games but it’s not available for users in Sri Lanka at the moment.
