How to Watch the Champions League in America

How can you watch the UEFA Champions League on USA TV?

If you’re in the US and you want to watch the Champions League on TV or the internet, it all boils down to two places, depending on how attached you are to seeing the games in English.

For English-language broadcasts, that place is CBS, which in 2020 secured the English-language rights to all Champions League games in the US. (Univision has the Spanish-language rights.)

Watch the UEFA Champions League on Paramount+ in the US.

Watch the Champions League on TV

You’ve got two options:

  • Regular CBS is included in your cable package, but very few games will be on there.
  • Paramount+ costs $4.99 a month ($50 a year) or $10 per month ($100 per year) for an ad-free premium version that also includes live CBS coverage.

Live Stream the Champions League

Another option is a subscription to fuboTV, which starts at $65 per month but includes a tremendous haul of soccer leagues all over the world plus tons of other entertainment. It also includes TUDN and Galavision, two Spanish-language broadcasters who will have half the Group Stage games and many other games going forward. And it has DVR technology.

    Hi Paul. I’m too cheap to buy the CBS All Access – but on Tuesday – I had a great watching experience. As a very ManU-centric fan – I knew the PSG game was being broadcast on Telemundo in Spanish – and although I know some Spanish – it’s not that kind of Spanish. So I tuned into the “watch along” with Mark Goldbridge – on the United Stand on YouTube – and for some reason – the timing synched up perfectly – and Mark’s commentary was spot on – if not overly biased – and of course – it was the best performance of a ManU side in a long time – and I was thrilled. Might not happen again – but that was really fun.

      That is a great work-around! And I like the Spanish announcers, even though I can’t speak a word of it. I don’t think the English announcers add that much entertainment, anyway.
