The 2020-21 UEFA Champions League group stage kicks off on Tuesday, and things are a little different than what fans have been used to.
This is the first full year in which CBS will have the English language rights to broadcast Champions League games in the United States. CBS took over the rights from Turner Sports after last season resumed play from the suspension caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Univision, however, will still have the rights to Spanish broadcasts in the U.S.
Here’s everything you need to know to watch Champions League games in the United States.
How to watch Champions League games in USA
CBS has the English language rights to broadcast UEFA Champions League games in the United States, but they won’t be on CBS’s TV channels until later in the season. Instead, CBS Sports Network will air a whip-around show during the 3 p.m. kickoff slot that will move back and forth between the six games going on during that time.
For those looking to stream individual games, you’ll need a CBS All Access subscription, which costs $5.99 per month or $59.99 per year. There’s an additional commercial-free tier that costs $9.99 per month and $99.99 per year.
For those looking for Spanish broadcasts, Univision will broadcast two games per time slot: one is on over-the-air channel UniMás and cable sports channel TUDN, and the other is on general-interest cable channel Galavisión.
