2015 was one hell of a year for the US Women’s National Soccer Team and 2016 is shaping up to be just as much fun to watch. Between the 2016 CONCACAF Women’s Olympic Qualifying Championship, the inaugural SheBelieves Cup, and of course the Summer Olympics there’s plenty of opportunities to watch these talented women compete.
Not sure where to find the games on TV? Based on the current National Team schedule, here’s the channels to check out:
FOX Sports 1 is FOX’s dedicated channel for sports, click here: http://www.foxsports.com/watch/fs1 to check availability based on your cable provider and / or to figure out the local channel number.
ESPN3 is ESPN’s online streaming channel. You can either watch it online here: http://espn.go.com/watchespn/index or via the WatchESPN app, which is available on Amazon Fire TV, Android and Kindle Fire devices, Apple products, Chromecast, Roku, Windows 8, Xbox One, and Xbox 360.
To watch, you may need to verify a cable subscription. Details about access and authentication can be found here.
NBCSN is the NBC Sports Network, click here to find your local channel.
Regardless of the device or platform used to watch, this service also typically requires users to authenticate a cable subscription.
NBC Universo is NBC’s bilingual channel that airs a variety of scripted and reality tv shows, music programming, and live sports. Most games that air on NBCSN are also simulcast here.
Note about NBC: In 2014, NBC extended their contract for the exclusive broadcast rights the Olympics to 2032, so it’s fair to say that you can probably find most future Olympic soccer matches on these channels too.
Many of the women on the US National Team also play in the National Women’s Soccer League. The 2016 season kicks off on Saturday April 16th. Last season most of the games were live-streamed on the NWSL YouTube Channel so you may as well bookmark that link too.
