What channel is Copa América on?

As we'll see in a moment, the best way to stream live sports like Copa América is to access live streaming versions of the cable and satellite channels that we're already familiar with. If we know which channels will be airing Copa América matches, then we can simply find services that offer those channels and sign up!

The TV schedule for Copa América 2020 has not yet been announced. In past years, the broadcast rights to Copa América have bounced around: The 2016 edition was broadcast on Fox networks, while the 2019 edition of the tournament was on ESPN and ESPN+.

We'll update our guide as we get closer to the 2020 tournament. In the meantime, we'll show you how to get channels that have had the rights to Copa Américas gone by.

How to watch Copa América online and over the air without cable

Copa América matches are typically available on TV networks. But how can we get those without cable? The answer is the live TV streaming service, or “skinny bundle.” Skinny bundles are out to beat cable at its own game. They offer slimmed-down bundles of channels, and they stream over the internet rather than relying on old-school cable or satellite setups. Best of all, they're cheaper than cable! In fact, many of these services offer free trials — meaning that you can watch Copa América  for free, at least for a little while.

We'll kick off our list with skinny bundle services, but we won't stop there. We'll also talk about other methods, so keep reading!

Stream Copa America for free with Hulu

Free Trial

Hulu's live TV streaming service offers access to both ESPN and Fox, which has made this skinny bundle a reliable friend to those who simply can't miss Copa América. And, thanks to Hulu + Live TV's free trial offer, you can start streaming for free. To do that, just click the link in this section.

Stream Copa America for free with fuboTV

Free Trial

fuboTV knows a thing or two about soccer: It began life as a soccer-specific streaming service before pivoting to become a regular skinny bundle a few years ago. fuboTV still retains a lot of great soccer-related channels, and it's a good choice for Fox broadcasts of major matches. The only drawback to keep in mind is that, as of this writing, fuboTV does not carry ESPN.

Stream Copa America with Sling TV

Try It

Sling TV is a live TV streaming service that allows its customers to build their own skinny bundles. Starting with one or more base bundles, Sling TV fans can add “Extras” (add-on mini-bundles of channels grouped by genre) to their heart's content. That makes it easy to build a custom bundle that has everything you need but nothing that you don't want to pay for. Sling TV currently offers ESPN, FS1, and other great sports channels. It does not carry Fox's flagship network, though.

AT&T TV Now

The skinny bundle formerly known as DirecTV Now is another great way to watch live TV without cable, and it should suit soccer fans just fine. ESPN, Fox, and FS1 are all here and accounted for.

YouTube TV

YouTube TV is the live TV streaming service from tech giant Google, and it's an impressive contender in the skinny bundle space. YouTube TV's straightforward pricing structure gives you a bunch of great channels for a flat rate (there are a few add-on options, too). You'll find Fox, FS1, and ESPN among the included networks.

Free over-the-air TV

Fox has shown Copa América games in the past. It's always good news for cord cutters when Fox has the games, because Fox is a broadcast network. That means that it is put out over the air for free! In most areas, you'll just need to grab an over-the-air antenna, plug it in, scan for channels, and tune into Fox. That's a pretty sweet deal! Of course, an antenna can't help you get cable- and satellite-only networks like ESPN or FS1.

Stream Copa America with ESPN+

Try It

In 2019, ESPN secured the rights to Copa America and streamed games on its live sports streaming service, ESPN+. The highly affordable ESPN+ does not include a live stream of ESPN, but it does include access to lots of great live sports broadcasts. In the past, those broadcasts have included Copa América matches.

Can I watch Copa América on Roku, Fire TV, Apple TV, and Chromecast?

Copa América is full of big-time action, and it deserves a big screen. So how about it? Can you watch Cope América on your smart TV or streaming box? Generally speaking, yes! The options we've given you above partner nicely with popular streaming platforms.

Take Roku, for instance. That platform has apps for Hulu + Live TV, fuboTV, Sling TV, AT&T TV Now, and YouTube TV.

Hulu + Live TV, fuboTV, Sling TV, AT&T TV Now, and YouTube TV all work on Fire TV devices, too.

Apple TV? Yep, you're covered, too: Hulu + Live TV, fuboTV, Sling TV, AT&T TV Now, and YouTube TV all have Apple TV apps.

Hulu + Live TV, fuboTV, Sling TV, AT&T TV Now, and YouTube TV each work well on Chromecast devices.

Hulu + Live TV, fuboTV, Sling TV, AT&T TV Now, and YouTube TV have in-browser apps for use on your PC or Mac, too.

You can stream the big games on your video game system, too! Xbox One users can check out Hulu + Live TV, Sling TV, and YouTube TV. PlayStation 4 fans should turn to Hulu + Live TV.

ESPN+ has great platform support, too! You can stream ESPN+ on Roku, Fire TV, Apple TV, Chromecast, iOS, Android, and Mac/PC.

    I’m disappointed that you didn’t mention that both fubo.tv (paid streaming, including Roku), and Univision (free over the air) will also be showing the games. It appears to me that Univision is showing all the games for free over the air, but I haven’t confirmed this.

      Thanks so much for pointing this out, Shen! I left out the Spanish-language broadcasts in the original post, but I’ve fixed that now.
