  1. Thank you, as usual, for this summary. It’s an impressive list, if still incomplete with regard to some Spanish channels. I’m also afraid this week it may be missing the “soccer on TV” tag, as it doesn’t show up in that category, which some users may have bookmarked.
    .
    I hope some people may again find it useful to have a compact overview of just those channels available over the air or via standard cable/satellite, as opposed to premium service or streaming, which fewer fans can access. In particular, US fans may be glad of the opportunity to see Schalke, if Weston McKennie plays, as he has recently been covering various positions as needed, and doing pretty well, considering.

    *Spanish language coverage. Turn on CC (closed captioning) function if desired.
    .
    One caveat: as welcome as the Europa League coverage normally is, it may not be available this week in all markets. My cable provider, for instance, doesn’t show any of these games on the Thursday schedule, even though they were apparently announced nationally. I can only suggest calling your service provider to try to find out.
    .
    It may be an uphill battle, but surely broadcasters will only show more top-quality soccer if more of us speak up and request it, and show appreciation for those already providing it.
