They broadcast the entire NWSL tournament last month on CBS All Access. I subscribed just for that reason (was always thinking about it because of star trek, but this was the clincher). Supposedly they are going all in on soccer and will be broadcasting UCL and UEL games going forward

Just came here to say exactly that, except that I already had CBS All Access for Star Trek purposes and that the NWSL tournament was a total bonus. Watched almost all the matches and thoroughly enjoyed them.

they are going to show the rest of the champions league this month, and i think they got the rights too for the next tournament as well.

EDIT: CBS All Access not the actual OTA CBS

You were happy to pay B/R Live's extortionate per-match prices but balk at a subscription that costs as much for a whole month as watching two games on B/R?

Also, some stuff will be on CBS Sports Network, which your cable provider may... provide.

This is new... Will it help people actually find the game? Probably not. But maybe it will help some.

Not new at all, they've had that page for years.

I keep mentioning this. We are seeing Chanot/Callens/Tinnerholm in recent games really sluggish. Why not give Rocha, Ibeagha, Scally, Ring a run at the back occasionally to give those players a break? It's absolute madness.
