America vs. Pumas live stream: How to watch online for free

Univision, UniMás, and Univision Deportes may be hard to find if you have Dish Network, as contract negotiations between Dish and Univision came to an impasse in July 2018, which also led the channels to be cut from the Dish-owned Sling TV. But there are other options for streaming América vs. Pumas online, and they come with generous free trials.

1) FuboTV

  • Cost: $39.99 for your first month and $44.99 per month thereafter (after a 7-day free trial)
  • Devices: Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire, Android TV, iOS and Android devices

FuboTV is one of the leading live TV streaming services, offering a compelling combination of sports (NBA TV, NFL Network), entertainment (AMC, Syfy, FX), and news (MSNBC, CNN) channels in its core package. But where it really shines is with international soccer, offering UniMas, 10 beIN Sports channels, NBCSN, FS1 and FS2, and more, so you can watch everything from English Premier League to La Liga all in one place. You’ll also get three-day replay for games and 30 hours of cloud DVR. (Here’s the complete FuboTV channels list.)

2) DirecTV Now

Cost: $40-$75 per month (after a 7-day free trial)

Devices: Roku, Apple TV, Google Chromecast, and Amazon Fire Stick

DirecTV Now, the online alternative to DirecTV, offers five different channel packages—and all include Univision. While the entry-level Live a Little package ($40 per month) covers most of your bases, for international soccer, you’ll want to get the Todo y Mas (“Everything and More”) for $45 per month. This package is geared toward Spanish-speaking viewers, with channels like Univision, ESPN Deportes, Telemundo, and CNN En Español. It’s the only DirecTV Now option that includes beIN Sports, which you’ll need for La Liga matches. (You can view the full DirecTV Now channels list here.)

3) Univision Now

America vs. Pumas: Why it matters

Look, I’ve been a Pumas fan since I could walk. My mother went to U.N.A.M., the giant university that spun-off Pumas. Since 1962, the club has clashed with América in the Clásico Capitalino. It’s the hipster intellectuals with Che Guevara posters (Pumas) against the monolithic titans owned by a national TV network Televisa (América). Despite the fierce rivalry, this semifinal is a showcase for Mexican soccer. América’s head man is Miguel Herrera, the embattled manager who led the national team to a memorable Brazil 2014 World Cup run and was fired for punching a reporter a year later. He’s back coaching the team that catapulted him into international icon status, and I think with the fierce home crowd at Azteca Herrera’s men are clear favorites.
