  1. I’m immediately tickled that I only have to block time during the work day for ONE USMNT game (the finale). Lots of games in the afternoon/evening. Love it. Very convenient.

  2. Is that a typo – Italy v. England at 9 pm, ET?

    Seems odd that is the only prime-time match (especially with two European television audiences).

      1. Are you sure about these times? I downloaded a schedule and it shows Brazilian game times. The games are all later afternoon or evening. Brazil is 4 hrs ahead of West Coast time. That would mean that games in the USA on TV would be between 2 pm to 7 pm.

        I checked with a Brazilian friend and he seemed to that that was correct. Just wondering.

    1. In the US there are going to more people outside weather permitting having picnics and barbecues and going to firework shows than watching the WC unless the US is still in it which is highly unlikely.

        1. Chris, thanks a million for the information. I updated the schedule now based on FIFA’s changes. Much appreciated.

  3. Thanks for this I noticed you said we will find out about ABC, ESPN, ESPN2 in the near future. Can you keep us posted on the Univision schedule as well?

  4. is it possible to transmit the world cup game of 2014 in portuguese language closed channel? for all the brazilians in the U.S.A?

    1. As far as I know, the Portuguese-language rights haven’t been confirmed yet, but it’s possible that ESPN may acquire them and show those games on

    1. Univision will be showing all of the games via free-to-air. You should be able to watch it there.
