Boca Juniors and River Plate matches now available in US

For the first time in a long time, Argentina Superliga matches featuring Boca Juniors and River Plate will be available legally for viewing in the United States.

A new streaming service called Fanatiz is now offering soccer fans around the world matches from Argentina, Chile, Peru and Mexico. Due to TV rights restrictions, only matches from the Argentine Primera, Chilean Primera and Chilean Cup can be shown in the US. But this means that ALL Argentinian matches are available through Fanatiz, which includes matches of Boca Juniors and River Plate which are currently not being shown in the US on TyC Sports.

Fanatiz is a pay streaming service. The cost is $14.99 per month but they are currently offering a promotional rate of $7.99 as well as a free 7-day trial. Matches can be watched on their website at fanatiz.com or on any device via their app, which is available in both Android and iOS (Apple iPhone/iPad).

While a majority of Argentinian Primera matches are broadcast on TyC Sports, Boca Junior and River Plate matches have been unavailable to the US market for several years now apparently due to exorbitant prices demanded by the two clubs. Hopefully, this new service will fill that void. And not to be ignored is the Chilean Primera which produces quality football from legendary clubs such as Colo Colo, Universidad Catolica, Universidad de Chile, Everton, Palestino and O’Higgins all of whom US fans of Latin American football will be familiar with from their participation in the Copa Libertadores and Copa Sudamericana.

    Well, finally, but $9.99 (later $14.99) to have access ONLY to the Argentinian League matches (and Chilean League and Cup matches) in the US is too much, mostly considering that Fanatiz is not offering proper channels or programming to fans of those leagues, like TyC Sports or FOX Sports Argentina or Chile.

    I signed up for the free trial at Fanatiz and their streaming quality is not really HD, really disappointing, so if they want to compete in the US and charge half of what Fubo TV charges for tens of channels, they have to improve the quality and programming.

    In the meantime, I’ll keep my Fubo TV account to watch all my fútbol and because it includes TyC Sport for the Argentinian League, and keep paying for a private Roku channel for the Argentinian Superliga in HD.

    It is outrageous to ask $14.99 a month for 4 games (once a week) to watch games of my team (River Plate) when I can watch on regular cable Barca, RMadrid, and other top European teams for free. Legally!
    This seems to yet another fail business effort and dissapointment for Boca and River fans who cannot pay that price.

      If you have cable and pay for it, that means that the ‘top European’ matches you watch are not free at all. 😉

    Spanish-only is confirmed but they say they will be working on adding English commentary in the future.

    I take it that these broadcasts are in Spanish?
