How to watch the USMNT throughout 2023 (it's complicated)

2023 marked the beginning of a new era for U.S. Soccer with broadcast coverage of every USMNT and USWNT friendly being provided by Turner Sports. This has opened the door to live sports on HBO Max, although certain competitions remain reserved for Fox Sports and Paramount Global. 

It follows that the 2023 USMNT TV schedule is all over the place. Despite having just played in a World Cup, the U.S. has a busy calendar year with four windows for friendlies, the completion of the 2022-23 CONCACAF Nations League and the 2023 CONCACAF Gold Cup.

The Stars and Stripes are fighting to retain both trophies after claiming them in 2021, but there's going to be staunch resistance from Mexico, Canada, Costa Rica and other nations targeting a place at the expanded 2026 World Cup with the region possibly at least six and possibly seven spots.
