Where to watch the matches?

The CONCACAF World Cup qualifiers start now after a long delay due to the Covid-19 pandemic. But, the games are going to come thick and fast. The format will be an eight-team group stage match in which, the top three teams advance directly to the World Cup finals. Moreover, the team that finishes fourth would have an intercontinental match to determine the winner.

Five different broadcasters have taken the rights for the telecast of the matches. ESPN, FOX, and CBS are the three English-language channels. Likewise, the Spanish channels given the nod are Univision and Telemundo. They telecast the home qualifiers on ESPN and FOX while Univision plays for the Spanish contingent. However, the away matches are telecasted by CBS while Telemundo got the rights to telecast the Spanish commentary.
