efl cup on tv

The EFL Cup, known as the Carabao Cup for sponsorship reasons, is one of English football’s premier cup competitions involving clubs across the Premier League and lower divisions. With big names consistently involved, the tournament delivers drama attracting interest from across Africa and Asia. But how can fans in countries like Bangladesh, Nigeria, Kenya and India catch the action?

Official Broadcasters

Let’s start with the official EFL Cup broadcasting rights-holders for these nations:

  • Bangladesh: Sony Sports Network hold exclusive rights to air the entire EFL Cup tournament through their Sony Six SD/HD channels available across cable and DTH satellite TV platforms.
  • Nigeria: SuperSport is the go-to destination for Nigerian viewers courtesy of their Premium package available on DStv and GOtv subscriptions that includes all EFL Cup matches.
  • Kenya: As in Nigeria, SuperSport Premium through DStv and GOtv plans show the EFL Cup in Kenya. Local free-to-air broadcasters KBC and K24 TV occasionally televise select big fixtures too.
  • India: For Indian audiences, the Sony Sports Network also handles EFL Cup broadcasts just like in Bangladesh. Sony Ten channels screen matches via DTH and cable partners reaching a massive viewer base.

So securing the right cable/DTH subscription package from recognized broadcasters Sony and SuperSport ensures guaranteed access to watch every EFL Cup tie from the comfort of your living room. However, various other paid streaming options are emerging.

Paid Online Streaming

Bookmaker sites like Bet365, Betway and 1XBet offer online viewing passes to stream the entire EFL Cup tournament through their platforms and betting apps at relatively low subscription fees. This works well for cord-cutters without cable.

However, the caveat is you need to have an active account balance to view paid streams on these sites – making it conditionally free for regular punters regularly depositing funds into accounts anyway.

Free Streaming Options

Finally, those hunting for unofficial free streaming options may stumble upon less reliable EFL Cup feeds on aggregator sites like cricHD, Live24Sports and Redditz. Quality and uptime varies greatly though.

Still, for big clashes like the EFL Cup final, various Facebook groups and pages sometimes share delayed temporary streams allowing people to catch key highlights or even full matches. But it takes some searching and patience to find good free stream sources.
