The Champions League quarterfinals and elimination rounds will vanish from U.S. network and cable English-language television this summer. This is due to the new contract between UEFA and CBS, and the remainder of the 2019-20 competition will be primarily streamed.
CBS took over rights from TBS during the coronavirus pandemic break. CBS said Wednesday the only matches it plans to televise are the round of 16-second legs of Manchester City-Real Madrid on Aug. 8.

CBS also plans to televise and Barcelona-Napoli the following day, plus the final on Aug. 23. They will be on the CBS Sports Network link channel. Every single other game will be accessible online at CBS All Access. The competition was ended by the pandemic in March.
UEFA arrived at a U.S. rights concurrence with CBS through the 2023-24 season. As a component of the understanding, CBS quickly took over rights from TBS, which had been scheduled to go through the 2020-21 season.
CBS said the decisions on the remainder of this year´s tournament were “due to the short turnaround and with the CBS television network already having previous commitments at the same time of the tournament final.”
Due to the pandemic, the quarterfinals and elimination rounds were changed from two legs to one-coordinate knockouts. All games from the quarterfinals will be in Lisbon, Portugal. The remainder of the Europa League, UEFA´s No2 club competition, will be completely spilled.
CBS All Access is offering a one-month free preliminary, permitting U.S. watchers to watch matches at no expense. Starting with the 2020-21 season, CBS said select matches will be on the main CBS network, including every Champions League final.
ESPN broadcast the Champions League with English commentary in the U.S. from 1995-96 through 2008-09, followed by Fox from 2009-10 through 2017-18. Univision retains U.S. Spanish-language rights.
