How to watch MLS in English on UniMas or Univision Deportes Network with SAP

Updated as of April 1, 2015 - 5:00 PM ET

English audio is not available in all markets (see below). Univision is working on adding the service to more markets and to more cable and satellite providers.

Try Univision Deportes as an alternative: In some markets SAP is not available on UniMás, but the feature is available on Univision Deportes Network. If you are not receiving English audio on UniMás, SAP will work on Univision Deportes (use the channel finder for your cable/satellite system below).

  • English feed starts at kickoff: UniMás or UDN's pregame coverage is not in English. Univision will begin the SAP audio feed (English) when the teams take the field for kickoff.
  • Select "Spanish" for English: Some cable systems have labeled the SAP feature as "Spanish." You may have to select the "Spanish" audio option while watching UniMás or UDN to receive English audio.
  • Recording a match: If you plan to record a match on UniMás or UDN, you may need to change your audio settings on the DVR before you start recording. Check you provider's instructions in the table below.
