espn deportes ESPN Deportes to Broadcast All 64 World Cup Games Live In Portuguese On US TV

ESPN Deportes will broadcast all 64 World Cup games live on US television this summer in the Portuguese language.

The vast majority of the games will be shown on ESPN Deportes except when there are matches being played simultaneously. During those times, the matches will be split between ESPN Deportes and ESPN Deportes+, which is the live streaming option. ESPN Deportes+ is an extension of ESPN3.com and is accessible via ESPN3.com or ESPNDeportes.com.

Access to ESPN Deportes+ requires authentication to prove that you’re a paid TV subscriber to ESPN Deportes.

For soccer fans in the United States, ESPN has the English-language rights, while Univision Deportes has Spanish-language rights.

Here’s the TV schedule for World Cup games with Portuguese commentary that will be shown in the United States on ESPN Deportes:
