Jeff Kotuby

After announcing they’d secured the rights to Serie A months ago, CBS Sports is finally revealing what their plans are.

CBS Sports today announced its Italian Serie A broadcasting schedule on Paramount+ and CBS Sports Network. The network kicks off its Serie A coverage on Saturday, Aug. 21, and CBS Sports’ coverage of the Coppa Italia tournament begins on Friday, Aug. 13, with all matches available on Paramount+. CBS Sports will also air a full Serie A studio show from New York beginning on Sunday, Sept. 12, broadcasting on CBS Sports Network and streaming on Paramount+.

Paramount+ will deliver more than 400 club matches live each season through 2024, featuring all 380 Serie A matches, at least 25 Coppa Italia tourney matches (including all contests from the fourth knockout round on,) and the Supercoppa Italiana match each year, that pits the winners of Serie A and Coppa Italia against each other. Select matches will be televised each year on CBS Sports linear platforms, including CBS Sports Network.

CBS Sports will also provide coverage of the Coppa Italia, the largest soccer tournament in Italy, with matches streaming live on Paramount+ throughout August. CBS Sports Network will re-air select Coppa Italia matches throughout the month and feature dedicated 30-minute highlight shows.

Paramount Plus

Paramount+ is a subscription video streaming service that includes on-demand access to 12,000+ TV show episodes including originals Star Trek: Discovery, Nickelodeon’s SpongeBob SquarePants, and MTV’s Laguna Beach. Meet captivating characters, catch up on your favorite sport, explore new worlds in the growing collection of Paramount+.

Previously under the name ‘CBS All Access,’ Subscribers can choose between their Essentials Plan (which includes ads) for $4.99/month, or go commercial-free with their Premium Plan for $9.99/month.

With their Premium Plan, in addition to not having ads, you will also get access to your local CBS affiliate to stream your local news, prime-time line-up, and late-night. You will also be able to download offline and watch select shows in 4K.

With the lower cost “Essential” plan, you will still be able to watch live NFL games, Champions League, and national news – but you will no longer get your local CBS affiliate like the old ad-supported plan.

With their new app, enjoy advanced recommendations, curated homepages, and new content categories while still being able to stream major live sports like NFL, College Football, College Basketball. Sports fans will also appreciate the service’s inclusion of NFL on CBS, PGA Tour, along with every match of UEFA Champions League and Serie A.

2021 marks the first season that ViacomCBS serves as the exclusive U.S. rightsholder for Serie A. The company secured the rights by beating out ESPN this March as part of its intense focus on soccer. ViacomCBS and Paramount+ now own the American broadcasting rights to the UEFA Champions League, UEFA Europa League, Europa Conference League, NWSL, Concacaf, Brazil’s Campeonato Brasileiro Série A, and Argentina’s Liga Profesional de Futbol, and the Scottish Professional Football League.
