List of UEFA Champions League broadcasters

This is a list of television broadcasters which provide coverage of the UEFA Champions League, European football's top level continental competition. All matches kick-off at 20:45 Central European Time (CET), with the exception of matches held in Russia.

UEFA sells the broadcast rights in a three season basis and various packages are available for bidders, with UEFA weighing balance between free and pay television under the UEFA and European Union (EU) agreement. While balancing between free and pay television, if the rights do not sell within "sales windows", the rights may be sold on an individual basis to pay-per-view television broadcasters.[1]

The 2010 final attracted 109 million audiences around the world, a record number for the competition, and replaced NFL's Super Bowl as the most-watched annual sports event.[2]
