    These games start Tuesday and D* has provided awesome coverage of every game in clean HD the past few years. I am getting worried that they might not this year since there is still no guide info on these channels and I thought usually it's up by now. Does anyone know if these games are happening this year?

    Based on the Directv guide, these games will be split between Fox Sports 1, Fox Sports 2 and the regional FSN's.

    Lots of games Tuesday and Wednesday, can't wait!

    I think they still will be because they had some DirecTV exclusive games for the playoffs to get into the CL proper.

    In addition to the FS1, FS2 and FSN games, Fox Soccer Plus will have live matches too.

    The DirecTV schedule usually shows up a day or two prior. The schedule Fox is distributing indicates that DirecTV will have 4 UEFA Champions league matches on Tuesday and Wednesday and 9 UEFA Europa League matches at 1pm ET and 3:05pm ET on Thursday.

    I assume the guide will populate after this weekend's football games are over. They just added the ESPN2-ABC mirror game for (Noon tomorrow) this morning. I wish they'd add the games 2 weeks or more in advance on part-time channels so that search would be complete.

    DirecTV channel assignment now available for both Champions League (Tuesday/Wednesday) as well as Europa League on Thursday.

    This season in the Champions League, 4 matches will be available live on the Fox channels (FoxSports 1/2, FoxSoccer-Plus and Regional). Remaining 4 matches exclusively live on the DirecTV channels (481-484). Mix channel remains on #480. One change from last season, apparently no "mirrors" on 485-488. All matches will be available on delayed basis on FoxSoccer-Plus. 5 of the 8 matches live/delayed on FoxSports-2.

    Putting a game on Fox Soccer Plus is incredibly stupid. Its not even a soccer channel really, they show more rugby and aussie rules on it. No body is gonna pay $15 to just see their team play 1 Champions League game in a month.

    Of those who carry it, most providers have it in their sports pack. Directv is one of the only ones left who has it a la carte.

    Sportsmix channel on 205 has the UEFA Champions League mix channel on. Only 4 games though. The ones on the FOX channels don't show. Nice to see that Directv is doing the same thing they do for golf and tennis for the Champions League on 205.
