Honduras vs. USA, 2014 World Cup qualifying: Preview, streaming and TV schedule

Gail Oskin

Before American soccer fans start cursing beIN Sport, they should recall the way fans had to watch the last Honduras vs. USA match.

Wednesday afternoon's World Cup qualifying match between Honduras and the United States is on beIN Sport, a channel which a lot of people do not have. It will probably come to new cable providers shortly, but for now, it's only available on three providers: DirecTV, DISH Network, and Comcast. That covers tens of millions of Americans, but leaves more out. Every away qualifier that the U.S. plays will be on beIN Sport.

Before you get outraged, USMNT supporter, remember that U.S. soccer has no say over where away games are broadcast. The Honduran federation can sell the rights to whomever they please. In 2009, the away qualifier in Honduras was sold to a horrible pay-per-view company that charged $30 for an atrocious stream that was essentially a slideshow. This is a massive improvement.

If you live in the United States, do not have access to beIN Sport and want to watch the game, we recommend your local AO bar.

The game is also available in the U.K. and Ireland, but not on TV. Betting service William Hill has purchased a live stream of the match, which you can watch without paying if you have an account with them. There is no live internet stream in the United States.

Match date/time: Wednesday, 4 p.m. ET

Venue: Estadio Olímpico Metropolitano, San Pedro Sula, Honduras

TV: beIN Sport (U.S.)

Online: William Hill (U.K. and Ireland)
