Find out where, when and how to watch the giants of European soccer with our Champions League TV schedule.
In the United States, FOX Sports has the exclusive television rights to both the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League matches.
The most high-profile Champions League matches on Tuesday and Wednesday gamedays during the season are televised live on FOX Sports 1 and FOX Sports 2, while other games can be seen on FOX Soccer Plus, FOX Sports Net and channels 480-489 on DIRECTV as well as DISH plus select Spanish-language games on FOX Deportes and ESPN Deportes.
The UEFA Champions League is televised on FOX Sports. Playoff rounds of the tournament are in August. The group stages of the competition are played from September through December. Round of 16 games are played during February-March, quarter-finals in April, semi-finals in late April and May, while the final is at the end of May.
During the group stage of both tournaments onwards, FOX Soccer Plus features a whiparound coverage show called MultiMatch 90, which is also available on FOX Soccer 2GO. The concept is, rather than trying to channel surf between all of the games that are being played concurrently, you can watch the MultiMatch 90 program, which will broadcast live (or slightly delayed highlights) from key incidents that are happening around Europe. Read our review of MultiMatch 90.
If you want access to every single Champions League game (both live and on-demand), the only way is to subscribe to FOX Soccer 2GO.

During the Champions League competition, particularly the Group and Round of 16 stages, FOX Sports almost always will televise the games featuring English Premier League teams on FOX Sports 1. The exception to the rule is Barcelona, which FOX Sports tries to showcase on FOX Sports 1 whenever possible. For fans of teams outside of the Premier League and Barcelona, games are televised on FOX Sports 2, FOX Soccer Plus or, occasionally, FOX Sports Net. The streaming platform FOX Soccer 2GO offers the only current way to guarantee that you’ll have access to every single Champions League game throughout the entire season.
FOX Sports has the exclusive TV and streaming rights to the UEFA Champions League in the United States through until the end of the 2017-18 season.
