    • Christopher Harris

      March 13, 2014 at 7:43 pm

      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

    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?

    • Christopher Harris

      February 2, 2014 at 2:14 pm

      Once we get closer, yes.

  7. San Fransiscan

    December 7, 2013 at 6:30 pm

    Times have already been changed, USA vs. Portugal is now at 6:00 pm ET :).

    • Christopher Harris

      December 7, 2013 at 7:38 pm

      USA vs Portugal is still at 3pm ET.

      England vs Italy has been changed from 9pm to 6pm et.

      • Chris

        December 7, 2013 at 11:13 pm

        • Christopher Harris

          December 7, 2013 at 11:44 pm

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

          • Chris

            December 8, 2013 at 12:17 am

            Yeah no problem man. Do you think the USA Portugal game will still be on abc at 6 eastern now?

  8. CTBlues

    December 6, 2013 at 6:18 pm

    Games on 4th of July weekend is going to hurt ratings in the US.

    • R.O

      December 6, 2013 at 6:35 pm

      Don’t think so. This is the World Cup not some local tourney.

      Plenty of people in the US will watch.

    • Saints Fan

      December 7, 2013 at 8:30 am

      Not in my house it won’t. I think it’s a right result that the QF’s are on Fri July 4th & Sat July 5th.

    • CTBlues

      December 7, 2013 at 7:44 pm

      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.

  9. Len F

    December 6, 2013 at 3:59 pm

    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).

    • Christopher Harris

      December 6, 2013 at 5:45 pm

      Not a typo but the time may change for European audiences.

      • R.O

        December 6, 2013 at 6:32 pm

        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.

        • R.O

          December 6, 2013 at 6:34 pm

          “games on TV in USA would be between 2 pm to 7 pm.”

          should have added on TV 2-7 pm “west coast time.”

    • Matt

      December 6, 2013 at 5:45 pm

      Not a typo…but there is talk FIFA will swap fixtures with ENG-ITA moving back to the URU-CRC timeslot

  10. Dean Stell

    December 6, 2013 at 2:58 pm

    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.
