What Channels Have Soccer?

There are a lot of ways to enjoy soccer coverage without cable, but many options fall into one category: live TV streaming services, or “skinny bundles.” These streaming services provide access to livestreams of multiple channels. Think of them like cable, but for cord-cutters. They’re not free, but they’re often cheaper than their legacy pay TV forebears, and they sometimes offer free trials.

If these services get you live TV networks, the next question is: Which channels do we need? Let’s run down some of the big ones.

  • beIN Sports: For top soccer matches from foreign leagues, beIN Sports and its sister networks are essential.
  • FOX: FOX puts some big games on its flagship network, so it’s a must-have for soccer fans — especially during the World Cup. (Did you know you can watch the World Cup without cable?)
  • FS1: FOX’s all-sports network and its sister channel, FS2, offer soccer coverage.
  • ESPN: ESPN and its sister channels offer some live soccer games, including MLS games.
  • NBC: NBC offers Premier League coverage. You can find additional options for that league in our separate article on the Premier League.
  • NBCSN: You’ll find some more Premier League games on NBCSN.
  • Univision: Univision, UniMás, and Univision Deportes are great choices for Spanish-language soccer broadcasts.

A Word on Regional Sports Networks: Regional sports networks, or RSNs, offer coverage of local teams. Channels such as MSG and FOX Sports Midwest are where you’ll find your city’s MLB, NBA, or NHL teams. In many cases, these are also the channels to turn to for coverage of your local MLS team.

This isn't an exhaustive list, of course, but it will help us get started as we investigate our options.

More to Watch for Soccer Fans

There’s plenty of soccer out there, but what if you want to watch another sport? Before you do, you may want to look at our sports blackout rules explainer. The rules can be frustrating, especially if you live, say, five miles from Wrigley Field and can’t get Cubs games, even though your friend in Seattle can watch the Cubs to their heart’s content.

When you’re done, why not check out our guide to watching the Olympics without cable? Soccer is an event at the Summer Games, and there are no local or regional blackouts for the Olympics.

    What about FOX Soccer 2 Go?

  2. Dennis Rittenhouse says:

    All good stuff. I am happy with SLING (Orange + Blue + Spanish pkg.). But with all that, this NY Red Bulls fan cannot find MSG, when MLS Live is blacked out locally (New Jersey, specifically)… Any suggestions?
