Where to watch Euro 2020 on US TV

If you’re wondering where to watch the Euro 2020 on US TV, we have the answers you’re looking for.

Last updated: May 7, 2021

One of the premier sports tournaments on the planet, the UEFA European Championship is always full of excitement. The month-long summer competition composed of the top European nations is staged every four years (under normal circumstances), without clashing with the World Cup of course. Beginning in 1960, the “Euros” initially composed of just four teams. Fast forward sixty years and the tournament now has 24 total places in the group stage.

Though obviously originally set to play out in 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic has pushed back the tournament until the summer of 2021. Unable to play the competition basically any other time of the year due to club schedules, the revised 2021 plan made the most sense.

Where to watch Euro 2020 on US TV

Here in the United States, ESPN and their sister networks will have the rights to air Euro 2020 matches stateside in English-language. As it stands now, ESPN is set to televise 39 of the tournament’s matches, with ESPN2 airing seven, and ABC broadcasting the other five games. This will be ABC’s first UEFA European Championship televised since 2008. All of these matches will also be streamed on the ABC and ESPN apps as well.

The ESPN networks will also be televising pre-match, halftime, and postgame highlights and analysis programs, with a Euro 2020 recap show also airing each match night. For Spanish language viewers, Univision, and their sister sports channel TUDN, will be televising Euro 2020 in the United States.

    I thought ESPN+ means you get to view the games on ESPN. Noooo, this means you get only access to the 4-screen view, and nothing else. No access to the full-screen view on regular ESPN. So what does the + stand for? A minus, really!!! On ESPN+ you cannot even blow up the top left of 4 screens to view the game. As for the commentators, they are at their best on mute!!

    A minor correction for Tuesday’s games on Spanish TV. Univision and TUDN are only showing the England-Germany game, not UniMas. The Sweden-Ukraine match is on PrendeTV.

      Thanks Jonathan for the heads-up. Looks like TUDN made the change this morning, so we’ve gone ahead and updated the schedules accordingly. Hope you enjoy the matches!

    @Michael. Apparently even ESPN forgets they are not really offering Euro on ESPN+. Here is how they put it:
    Let ESPN FC get you ready for the round of 16 with a comprehensive look at every fixture, all of them streaming LIVE on ESPN and ESPN+ over the next four days, and our experts pick the eight teams they think will advance to the quarterfinals.
    (https://www.espn.com/soccer/uefa-european-championship/story/4419163/euro-2020-round-of-16-preview-formkey-playerspredictions-and-everything-you-need-to-know)

    So no, it is not only their customers that seem to be confused. It is funny to blame on customers when they fall for their ambiguity.

    That makes no sense. ESPN+ is the streaming service of ESPN, and their advertising states clearly that Euro matches will be available on ESPN+. So what happens with La Liga now? Do we have to get ESPN through a cable provider to see the matches even if you pay for the ESPN+ subscription? It is false advertising, that’s all it is.

      LaLiga will be available exclusively via ESPN+

      ESPN’s advertising for Euro 2020 says the games will be available on the ESPN app, not ESPN+

    @Charles. ESPN+ Doesn’t have the rights to the games. The rights are on ESPN, ESPN2, ABC. This has been a well known fact for years. I think a lot of this complaining is faux and is just for people to get attention. Anyone that has been reading this website for the entire of 2021 has been told a dozen times that the games will be on ESPN, ESPN2, ABC. This act is getting really old and played out. Chris has done an absoultely amazing job of tell everyone exactly how to view it, and exactly how NOT to view it. He has given you options to use Sling for $10, he has given you options to watch it absolutely free on PrendeTV, and many more. Anyone that doesn’t that is now coming on here and acting like they are surprised that they games were never going to be on ESPN+ (as the rights were given years before ESPN+ existed), and just not being sincere.

    If you have no cable and hope ESPN+ would allow you to watch, DON’T SIGN UP. They’ll only show you this awful bird’s-eye view which is simply unwatchable; the players are little dots and you get no replays or other amenities. I complained and ESPN+ refunded my money, they’re getting huge blowback from this borderline scam.

    We just needed an American network to ruin watching Soccer, the choice of multiple screens ruins everything, the commentaries distract from the game .
    We cancelled the subscription and getting British TV for the same price.
