Backstage disputes and twists

From the outset, the battle for the broadcasting rights of the 2024 Copa America has been fierce. In Brazil, for example, market giants like SBT and TV Globo vied for public preference, with the Brax agency mediating negotiations. The twist came when Brax chose to sign an exclusive contract with Grupo Globo, marking the return of coverage by the broadcaster after a period of absence due to legal issues.

Wide coverage

The diversity of broadcasters responsible for the Copa America broadcast reflects the global nature of the tournament. In the United States, Fox Sports and Univision ensured full coverage, while in Canada, The Sports Network and Réseau des Sports brought the games to English-speaking and French-speaking homes, respectively.

In South America, TV Globo is the official broadcaster in Brazil, while other countries such as Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Paraguay, and Venezuela have their own broadcasters responsible for coverage. In Europe, Viaplay secured the broadcast in Denmark, and in Oceania, Optus Sport, FBC, and Television New Zealand ensured coverage for fans in Australia, Fiji, and New Zealand, respectively.

Platform and language diversity

In addition to traditional broadcast on free-to-air and subscription TV, the 2024 Copa America will also be available on various streaming platforms, expanding viewer access. In Brazil, for example, SporTV, ESPN, and Paramount+ were vying for broadcast rights, reflecting the growing demand for digital options.

Another important aspect is the linguistic diversity of the broadcasts. In the United States, for example, games will be broadcast in English by Fox Sports and in Spanish by Univision, catering to the country's different language communities.
