I think BEIN Sports is televising the game at 3:55 ET

I get that station via comcast in Chicago, but will be in Detroit for work this afternoon. I'm struggling to find a spot that will be broadcasting via BEIN, satellite or anything else.


Or from an office?

Why is the Mexico game on ESPN2 and the USA game isn't on?


To add to Cul Baire's comments:

ESPN signed a deal to show all of Mexico's qualifying games.


Home Team's Federation controls broadcast rights.

With the exception of Mexico, all of our opponents in the Hex went with Al Jazeera, excuse me, BeIN Sports, over ESPN.


Road broadcast rights have always been interesting.

Be glad we've got them on free TV that's available on a reasonable number of cable/satellite systems. In the past, the local rights-holder has sold them to CCTV outlets, meaning we go to a bar or we don't watch it at all.
