Introducing…Our MLS TV Schedule Page!

soccer on tv 300x294 Introducing...Our MLS TV Schedule Page!

We’d like to take a minute to point out a new feature at MajorLeagueSoccerTalk.com, even though it’s a service that readers who also frequent EPLTalk.com will recognize.

We now have a page dedicated to the MLS Broadcast Schedule!

You should be able to drop in whenever you need to coordinate your domestic soccer consumption, whether it be through your television, on your PC, or through your portable viewing device.

First off, we won’t limit this just to Major League Soccer matches, though that will be the bread and butter of the page. We will also try to help you find matches played in the CONCACAF Champions League, Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup, International realm (including U-23/Olympic matches), and any friendlies that come along domestically. Basically, if a US-based team is playing an important match, you should be able to find it here!

We also hope to add in some lower-tier fixtures that make their way to your television, depending upon the coverage granted by different television outlets. Last season, FOX Soccer did broadcast a number of USL-Pro matches. If NASL, USL-Pro, or any of the newly-formed WPSL Elite matches get broadcast coverage, we’ll post them here for you.

And please, leave any feedback you may have about this service. We’ll do our best to make this page a frequent stop for your domestic viewing needs!

Here is this week’s schedule, just to get you started. In the future, point your browser to the top of the page, and a single click will put you in business!

    Thanks for the info, but the format is horrible. Can you possibly
    give us a legend? I have no idea what most of the acronyms are.

      Thank you for the excellent feedback. I’ve tried to make some changes, I hope you wander back and indicate whether the changes I’ve made are for the better.

        It took me a minute to figure out that MLS-DK/MLSLive is indicated
        by the key while local market broadcasts are in parenthesis and
        national broadcasts after a dash. Especially since there are also
        parenthetical notes to some of the national broadcasts. I’d note
        the format a bit clearer in the intro and use brackets for either
        the local broadcasts or the notes.

        Also, Toronto ought to be noted as a Canadian team in the CCL
        shouldn’t they?

  2. So…..today is First Kick. Yet there is no nationally televised
    match ? How are those in Florida supposed to watch First Kick?
    Besides paying for it. #MLSfail If a tree falls in the
    woods……..

  3. Yes…that is correct about the MLS Live free trial . I signed up.
    But this is an important television year for the MLS with NBC
    on-board. Why not broadcast a match on the actual “Opening Day”?
    MLS Champs Galaxy should also be the marque match. RSL is no
    slouch. I just feel that MLS/NBC missed the boat on this one.

    • Earl Reed says:

      It is definitely a strange move not televising one of the more enticing matchups of the whole weekend on National TV. There are a lot of decisions made about broadcast times, choices of teams to show (RBNY is being broadcast nationally something like 5 times in the first 6 weeks…that for the 9th place team last year), etc.

      I have my theories, but then again I’m cynical like that.

  4. By the way….I am grateful for this thread…thank you.

    Why the game between F.C. Dallas vs. Red Bull New York is not on
    NBC, what the heck is going on, freaking boring golf, What is this
    NBC deal, I don’t have versus.

  7. @Ben. It’s NBC Sports Network…..formerly known as Versus.

    MLS dropped the ball by having the two national TV games(one on
    NBCSN and one on Galavision) hosted by two of the worst supported
    teams in the league. Dallas showed plenty of of empty red
    seats(though it was a better than usual turnout for them), and
    Chivas had a tarp covering an entire end and the upper deck of the
    HDC, and there were still tons of empty chairs. Whoever scheduled
    that is a serious bonehead. Why not put the Vancouver game on
    NBCSN? Why not the LA Galaxy? Why not schedule Seattle or Toronto
    for an opener? Stupid. Anyhow, nice to see domestic soccer back.
    For anyone interested in the NASL, all the games are streamed live
    for free online via Ustream(you can catch them all at NASL.com or
    the individual team pages). You can also watch on your iOS/Android
    via the free Ustream app. Presentation isn’t always the best, but
    it’s awesome for fans of the lower tier teams to be able to watch
    for free. All 8 NASL teams kick off on April 7. GO STRIKERS!!
