For soccer fans wondering how to watch USA vs Mexico play in the Concacaf Nations League semifinal on Thursday, June 15, we have some good news and bad news.
The good news is that the game will be available on TV and streaming. The bad news (for people who can’t speak Spanish) is that CBS has decided to put the game exclusively on Paramount+ while TUDN will show the game on TV.
How to watch USA vs Mexico Concacaf Nations League Semifinal
When: Thursday, June 10, 10 p.m. ET
CBS putting the game behind their streaming paywall seriously rubbed fans the wrong way. Perhaps the biggest smack to the face is that the other semifinal, Panama vs. Canada at 7 p.m. ET, is on Paramount+ AND CBS Sports Network.

Really guys? You couldn’t put the biggest game and best rivalry in Concacaf on TV, but you could put THAT game on?
The 2021 Concacaf Nations League final between the USA and Mexico was some of the most entertaining television ever with a great crew, high drama and even a guy jumping off the railing during the live broadcast.
Putting this year’s USA-Mexico semifinal behind a streaming service is criminal and the fans responded accordingly.
You guys are complete idiots for putting the Canada match on cable but putting USA vs Canada only on streaming.— breslin birds (@BreslinBirds) May 23, 2023
No better way to build interest in the sport than to bury our biggest rivalry games on paramount minus.— Manti Python (@PythonNYfan) May 23, 2023
I love the coverage that CBS has done for futbol but, it would be really cool if they could air the US VS Mexico on the main CBS channel.— Adam Benlaziz (@ABenlaziz) May 24, 2023
What's with the paywall? Fox is airing the Gold Cup Final on the main network despite the US likely fielding a weaker side. Looking at your Sunday primetime schedule, it consists of mostly NCIS: LA reruns after 60 Minutes. Surely you could fit the Final in around 8:30, no?— Pittsburgh USMNT Fan (@PGH_USMNT) May 23, 2023
TUDN it is. Again.— Clayton Paul (@CPaul48) May 23, 2023
Only streaming for U.S. vs. Mexico? You guys suck.— Earl Fando V.B.E. (@earlfando) May 23, 2023
