Die-hard fans had to search out the odd televised European match, often on an obscure channel or at an inconvenient time and broadcast with poor production values. For veterans of those Dark Ages, the last few years have been transformational. Networks have sprung up, and as each one has scrambled to acquire more rights, more games have become available.
The good news is that when the new European season opens this weekend, nearly every important match — as well as dozens of unimportant ones — will be available with nothing more than a basic cable subscription.
But ubiquity has brought a new kind of frustration. Being an American fan of European soccer now means paying for cable with a higher-tier sports package and subscribing to at least two or three streaming services. I am a Tottenham supporter.
How can I watch the Premier League? But not every game is on television.
But if your team is, say, Fulham, Huddersfield or Burnley, prepare to ante up. What about those matches? Turner Sports has acquired the English-language rights to the Champions League. Among the changes this season: Matches have been moved off their traditional p.
Eastern start time on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, and will instead be shown in two match windows each day — at p. During the Champions League group stage, one match in each window will be shown on Tuesday and Wednesday on TNT, meaning only four games will air live on television each week.
Univision may help fill in the gaps ; it will carry 97 Champions League games on its linear networks — Univision, UDN, UniMas and Galavision — and dozens more across its other platforms.
Starting with the quarterfinals, every match will air on TNT. If we struggle in the Champions League group stage and get knocked down to the Europa League, how can I watch those matches?
Turner also owns Europa League rights, but the only match it plans to make available on television will be the final next May.
What about the F. Cup and the League Cup? The rights for the F.
Yes, that is what I am telling you. How much will all that cost? Do I have an alternative? Sort of.
I am afraid to ask, but I also like watching Real Madrid and Barcelona. Where can I find those matches? Yes, they use all of those capital letters. So I need to get a cable package that also includes beIN?
BeIN is almost never included in basic cable packages; instead, you usually have to subscribe to a more expensive tier.
Oh, wait: I forgot about Ronaldo. He moved to Juventus!
Where are those matches? Those games are on beIN Sports. And the Bundesliga? The Fox channels are your best friend. The latter two are channels that will probably require you to buy a more expensive cable package.
If you can't make it to your television, all of Fox's televised matches are available on the Fox Soccer app. Sometimes I like watching games in Spanish.
