Today’s must-see game between USA and Portugal will be shown live on US television and Internet beginning at 6pm ET/3pm PT (coverage begins at 5pm ET/2pm PT). If the United States beats Portugal, it will advance to the next round of the World Cup. If they draw or lose, then that’s another story.
If you want to watch the game on free-to-air network television, the game will be shown on Univision (check local listings for channel numbers). Univision is also offering a free, legal stream of the game without authentication required via it’s Univision online website.
For soccer fans with cable or satellite, you can watch the game live on ESPN and WatchESPN. To watch the game on WatchESPN, you’ll need to use authentication to show that you subscribe to ESPN. Unfortunately, ABC decided not to show the game during primetime network television and will instead be showing local and national news, followed by the season premiere of a TV show aptly named called Wipeout.
The USA-Portugal game will also be available in Portuguese via ESPN Deportes as well as via ESPN Radio.
