BT Sport has the rights to show all Bundesliga matches in the UK. There are usually five or six separate time slots during the weekend, with Friday evening games, Saturday afternoon and evening, as well as Sunday afternoon and evening games and sometimes matches on Monday nights.
With no other major football on due to the coronavirus crisis, BT Sport is not restricted by the 3pm broadcast blackout in the UK and will show Bundesliga games at 2:30pm on Saturdays.
As well as through BT Sport and BT Sport Extra through the red button on your television, Bundesliga games can also be streamed through the BT Sport app on iOS and Android devices.
In the U.S. Fox is the main broadcaster for German football, but Bundesliga matches are shown on Fox Sports 1, Fox Sports 2, Fox Soccer Plus, TUDN USA, FOX Deportes, FOX Soccer Match Pass and TUDN USA.
