When NBCSN announced they’d be simulcasting the Telemundo Spanish-language broadcast of USA vs. Spain in the World Cup round of 16, it made a lot of sense. There’s clearly a big audience, and why not take advantage of the rights you own in the biggest way possible? It’s why ESPN goes all out across multiple networks for big college football games.
The ratings delivered, too, which pretty much proved NBC’s theory correct, and also ensured we’d probably be seeing it again. According to a release, the network will indeed be bringing back the simulcast for both World Cup semifinal matches, starting tomorrow with the USWNT taking on England.
Via the release:
NBCSN will televise both FIFA Women’s World Cup semifinal matches in Spanish this week, kicking off from Parc Olympique Lyonnais with live coverage of USA vs. England tomorrow at 2:30 p.m. ET and continuing with Sweden vs. Netherlands on Wednesday, July 3 at 2:30 p.m. ET.
The FIFA Women’s World Cup semifinal matches will be simulcast in Spanish from Telemundo Deportes, the exclusive Spanish-language home of the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup. The games will also be livestreamed in Spanish via the Telemundo Deportes En Vivo and NBC Sports apps.

The English-language broadcast for USA-England will be available on network Fox, with pregame coverage starting at 2 PM Eastern and the game scheduled to start at 3 PM.
