This safe online streaming guide will help you watch the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest without compromising your privacy and security.

When does the Eurovision Song Contest start?

The 64th Eurovision Song Contest is being held in Tel Aviv, Israel, this year.

The first semifinal will begin at 9 PM CEST (Central European Summer Time), or 7 PM UTC, on Tuesday, May 14.

What is the Eurovision Song Contest?

Eurovision is one of the most watched programs in the world, with the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest attracting over 186 million viewers worldwide. Countries send musicians to represent them and viewers then vote on their favorites until there is only one left. (Viewers are not allowed to vote for performers from their own country.) This year, over 41 countries will be sending artists to represent them in the competition, including Darude (of Sandstorm fame) for Finland, Hatari for Iceland, and Katie Miller-Heidke for Australia (it is still unclear how Australia qualifies for Eurovision). You can see all of the artists that will be competing in this year’s contest here. The playlist of this year’s Eurovision songs is available here.

In an exceptionally progressive move that recognizes its status as a truly global event, Eurovision provides an official stream (without commentary) of its events on YouTube that is accessible from almost anywhere — except Canada and the United States.

However, a big part of the charm of watching Eurovision is the banter and commentary of the announcers. Below we assembled a list of stations by country that will be airing the Eurovision Song Contest. Some broadcasts are open to all users, others are geo-blocked but are from countries where we have Plus servers that will allow our Plus and Visionary users to stream them.

(Note: These feeds were recently confirmed to be working on our servers, but we cannot guarantee they will continue to work. We will update this list if any feeds are found to be faulty.)
