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