    US TV? What are you talking about? The Champions League is on a streaming service, not on TV unless you consider Univision US TV. Even if there is a game or two on the CBSSN, the channel is considered a third tier channel meaning it’s not in the same class as NBCSN, ESPN & ESPN2. God only knows why. You have to pay more $ to get it, might as well subscribe to Paramount+ or watch it on the Univision family of networks including TUDNXTRA which if free I might add.

    The King is back! Great to see him on US TV and glad he will be here through the course of the season. Did a fantastic job today I thought.

    With no games on OTA, that’s rather irrelevant. They can bring in Elvis Presley in the studio for all I care.

    Watching the games on Univision/UniMas, etc like everyone else I know.
