In Canada, I think it's being televised by Bein TV in English and Univision Canada in Spanish.

Let's go Paraguay!

Unfortunately, Rogers doesn't have Univision Canada on HD. Channel 780 BTW.

I was mistaken about Bein having Canadian English rights for this tournament.

From Rogers website:

"16 teams from the Americas will compete.

June 3 to 14: Watch all 24 group matches of the 2016 Copa America Centenario. Included as part of the Rogers Super Sports Pak on Channels 461 and 462 at no additional charge for new and existing customers.
Playoff games are not included.

June 16 to 26: Individual playoff games are available for purchase on Sportsnet PPV starting at $9.99/ea.
Order with your remote on Channel 348 (HD) or 350 (SD).

The super sports pak is $35.95 per month but it has a four months minimum requirement.
Freaking ripoff especially paying for the playoffs individually at $10 each.

They should be doing their best to make sure everyone gets to see this here.

Most fans of the sport here I know are only interested in the Euros.

I'm happy to have it in HD here, even if I can't understand it

Ripoff is an understatement. Even I wouldn't pay that.

More superstars in the Copa than Euros. And with less sides, competition will likely be better.



As for the US, Colombia is a brutal side. Not a great first round match-up. High temps and a very large Colombian contingent won't help.

Tough to get that PK call against you at the end of the half.

Hell of a save by Ospina on the Dempsey FK.

Not a very good match between Paraguay and Costa Rica. The US have a chance to get out of the group...

Re: Copa America Centenario thread

Matches haven't been great, so far.

I will catch Mexico/Uruguay tonight. No Suarez though for this one.
