The United States embraces Liga MX despite broadcasting complexities
Unfortunately, not every game will be available to watch either directly on television or online streaming for viewers based in the United States.
Unlike many other major soccer leagues where television broadcast deals are done on a league-wide basis, the bulk of Mexican top flight sides have secured independent deals with different broadcasters, which makes watching games a little more complex than usual. For example, Atlético San Luis have a long-term deal in place with TUDN to show their matches.
Each pricing structure will depend on your needs.
Several media outlets, such as TUDN, ViX, Azteca Deportes En Vivo, Azteca 7, ESPN Mexico, Star+, Fanatiz Mexico, Fox Sports Premium and Afizzionados have secured broadcasting rights in Mexico for 2023.
Meanwhile in the United States, select Liga MX games will be aired live on: TUDN USA, FOX Sports, Univision with English commentary.
Watching Liga MX in the US
Following your favourite team when they play at home is relatively easy as fans will know which broadcaster has a deal with their club. Away games however are slightly trickier because fans will need to find out whether the opponents have a deal with Univision or TV Azteca.
For fans in the US, streaming games is even easier. Most of the league is covered with by TUDN with the platform holding rights to show approximately 75% of league games. Alternatively, games are available through FuboTV which offer a free trial.
However, due to having an independent deal, if you are a US-based Chivas Guadalajara fan, then you’ll need to head straight to Telemundo Deportes, via Peacock TV.
