Heidenheim vs Dortmund live stream: Can you watch for free?

Heidenheim welcome Dortmund to Voith-Arena for a compelling Bundesliga matchup on Friday. It’s been a while since either side lost a match in the league, as Dortmund have three wins and two draws in their last five, while Heidenheim have rattled off three consecutive draws to follow three straight victories.

The match is starting soon, at 12:30 p.m. ET, and it will be broadcast exclusively on ESPN+ if you’re in the United States. That means that you won’t be able to watch a legal live stream for free, but ESPN+ also proves to be worth having for any Bundesliga fan.

Every single Bundesliga match this season will stream live on ESPN+. Some of the biggest matches may also be simulcast on ESPN or ESPN2, but the only way to guarantee you watch every game is with an ESPN+ subscription. Unfortunately, there is no ESPN+ free trial, but it’s just $11 per month by itself or $15 for a bundle of ESPN+, Hulu and Disney+. For Bundesliga alone, that works out to about 30 cents per match in February (37 total matches), and that’s not even counting the tons of other live sports (including soccer leagues such as German DFB Pokal, La Liga, Copa del Rey and FA Cup) and original shows.

If you’re even just the slightest bit interested in Bundesliga or soccer or sports in general, ESPN+ is a must-have in your streaming service rotation.
