There's good news and bad news for American fans seeking to watch
English-language coverage of the UEFA Champions League.
The bad news: All the group-stage matches and all but "select marquee matches" for the rest of the tournament will only air on streaming pay channel CBS All Access.
The good news: CBS Sports Network, the sports cable network, is introducing a whip-around show, “The Golazo Show," to air during the group-stage slot on weekdays when six matches are being played simultaneously, beginning on Tuesday.
The show will include all the goals and highlights as well as running analysis and commentary. It will be part of the eight hours of live UCL coverage each matchday across multiple CBS Sports' platforms:
