Where to watch the Bundesliga on US TV
In 2015, FOX Sports embarked on its inaugural season as the US home to the Bundesliga, Germany’s top professional soccer league. Most weekends, there are 5-6 Bundesliga games shown live on television via a combination of FOX Sports 1, FOX Sports 2, FOX Deportes, FOX Soccer Plus and Univision Deportes.
The Bundesliga season consists of 306 matches played from August to May.
On the Spanish-language side, FOX Deportes televises games, while Univision Deportes and UniMas will broadcast a select number of live matches each week.
This season, Univision Deportes will debut “BundesGol,” a one-hour show on Friday nights created exclusively for Bundesliga, featuring European soccer experts Ramses Sandoval, Xavier Sol and Lucía Villalón previewing the coming weekend’s action. The show airs at 5 p.m. ET on UDN. “Somos Bundesliga,” the popular weekly one-hour show, is also back for another season on Mondays at 2 p.m. ET.

Host Kate Abdo is the lead Bundesliga studio host, sitting alongside a rotation of analysts including Jovan Kirovski, Ian Joy and Alexi Lalas.
For many of the Bundesliga broadcasts on FOX Sports, the broadcaster uses the commentary feed from BT Sport in England instead of the world feed. For the big matches that are shown on FOX or FOX Sports 1, FOX Sports often uses John Strong or Keith Costigan as the announcer alongside a rotating number of FOX Sports Bundesliga analysts.

German cup competitions
Each August, the German Super Cup final, featuring the league champions against the winners of the DFB-Pokal, is shown on FOX Sports 1 and FOX Deportes.
