ViacomCBS has announced its full schedule for the conclusion of the 2019-2020 UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League in August, with coverage covering multiple platforms.
All UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League matches, starting Wednesday 5 August, will be streamed live on CBS All Access. The CBS Sports Network will broadcast a 16-game UEFA Champions League round every day on 7 August and 8 August, as well as the UEFA Champions League final on Sunday 23 August, which means that the final will not be televised.

CBS Sports Network will present Manchester City vs Real Madrid on August 7 and Barcelona vs Naples on August 8. During the UEFA Champions League round 16, when there are simultaneous matches, the CBS Sports Network will have the opportunity to switch to another competitive game to better serve the football fan. Each of the three CBS Sports Network games will begin with a 90-minute pre-game show.
Earlier this month, ViacomCBS and UEFA announced details of a cross-platform agreement for CBS All Access and CBS Sports which will serve as the exclusive English-language residence in the United States of the UEFA Champions League, UEFA Europa League and UEFA Europa Conference League until to 2024, starting in August. Due to the brief turnaround and with the CBS Television Network already engaged previously at the same time as the final of the tournament on Sunday 23 August, ViacomCBS will present the final on multiple platforms both on CBS Sports Network and on CBS All Access.
CBS All Access now offers a one-month free trial promotion for new subscribers until mid-August, giving fans the opportunity to watch every match for free in the August UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League tournaments during their trial.
Starting from October with the start of the 2020-2021 season and continuing throughout the 2023-2024 season, all the matches will be available on CBS All Access, with selection matches selected on the air also on the CBS television network. For the duration of the agreement, ViacomCBS will present the largest number of UEFA matches ever broadcast on American television, including each UEFA Champions League final on the CBS television network starting in May 2021.
CBS Sports Network, CBS All Access and CBS Sports Digital will provide additional coverage and original programming, including primetime encores on the CBS Sports Network and any games available on request on CBS All Access. CBS Sports Digital will present highlights of each match on social channels and CBS Sports HQ, the 24/7 sports news network.
