How to watch Copa America on Sling TV


From now through June 26, the FOX networks will be televising the remaining games of the 2016 Copa America Centenario featuring Argentina (starring Lionel Messi), USA, Mexico, Brazil, Colombia and other great teams from this hemisphere.

That’s all well and good if you subscribe to FOX Sports 1. But if you’re a cord cutter or you want to save money on your cable bill, you can watch every single remaining game of the Copa America Centenario with Sling TV, the legal streaming alternative where you can watch games on your computer, smartphone, tablet, video game platform, smart TV, Roku, Amazon Fire or connecting your stream to your TV via Google Chromecast.

Sling TV is currently offering a free 7-day trial.

    Don’t do it (unless you’re willing to watch in Spanish). The FS1 stream has been cutting out all tournament. When I contacted them to complain, Sling really didn’t seem to care.

        I was far from alone. Note the spikes during Copa games (

        As frustrating as the feed going out was, I understand that things happen. It was the customer service that had me really seeing red. I contacted them to give them the chance to make up for their failure and they completely blew it off. Their customer service was worthy of a cable company (fitting since Sling is owned by DISH).

    FuboTv has all the soccer that Sling has at a third of the price. Works on Roku but for DVR feature get Amazon Fire Stick.
