How to watch Champions League games in USA

The Champions League TV and streaming schedule is … slightly convoluted.

Let’s start with the Round of 16: Only two matches from each of the first and second legs will be available to watch on cable (CBS Sports Network); the second-leg matches have yet to be determined. Regardless, only those games that appear on CBSSN can be streamed on fuboTV, which is offering a seven-day free trial. Streaming will be carried by CBS All Access in the first leg. For the second leg, Paramount+ (a rebrand of CBS All Access starting on March 4) will stream the Champions League matches.

The Champions League quarterfinals can only be streamed on Paramount+. The semifinal matches will air on CBSSN and stream on Paramount+.

The Champions League final will air on CBS and stream on Paramount+; fuboTV is also a streaming option for each of the semifinal and final matches.
