Dortmund vs. Bayern Munich game scores more than 400,000 viewers on FOX


Saturday’s broadcast of the Bundesliga’s biggest game of the season between Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich was watched by more than 400,000 people on the FOX over-the-air broadcast network.

The exact number, 426,000, represents a significant improvement over the 248,000 people that watched Borussia Monchengladbach versus Bayer Leverkusen in August, which was also televised on the over-the-air FOX network.

The broadcast of the Dortmund-Bayern game, which ended 1-0 to BVB, began at Noon ET with a pre-game show, which was followed by the match itself from 12:30-2:30pm ET. The next day, Hoffenheim extended its unbeaten start in the Bundesliga to an 11th game with a 2-2 draw against Hamburg, and delivered 102,000 viewers on FS1, making it the most-watched Bundesliga match ever on the channel.

While the 426,000 number for Dortmund-Bayern Munich was an improvement, it failed to beat the 3 Premier League matches that were televised nationally on Saturday. Those three were Manchester United vs. Arsenal (491,000 viewers on NBCSN), Southampton vs. Liverpool (476,000 viewers on NBCSN) and Spurs vs. West Ham (642,000 viewers on NBC).
