It looks like qualifiers start this week. Who has the rights in the US?
Non US and Mexico home games - Paramount+ in English and Telemundo in Spanish
Unless I'm mistaken:
If the game is in the USA: FS1, ESPN, a related channel or the associated app.
If the game is in Mexico: FS1, an associated channel or the app. (If USA @ Mexico falls on a weekend, Fox should really try to put this game on the broadcast channel.) I think this also applies to all games Mexico hosts.
If the game is in another country: Paramount+. Maybe there's a chance for CBS Sports Network, but that seems to be a longshot. From what I understand, this also applies to other games. Hypotheticals would include Panama vs Honduras or Guatemala vs Mexico.
USA games in Spanish, regardless of host nation: TUDN or Univision would be the best (only?) bet. I'd assume that Univision, TUDN or Telemundo would have other games involving Mexico.
So, Paramount+ for all other CONCACAF games (Jamaica, El Salvador, etc.)? BeIN used to show most games but every blue moon they'd screw us and skip a game that would show as 90in30 only.
Paramount+ has the package that Bein used to have
Peacock has games listed on their live and upcoming page. They appear to be all in spanish language.
For CONCACAF WCQ, this is the schedule as of today (kickoff times can sometimes be off but I tried my best):

Paramount Plus has a poor website in that it does not have a sports section or schedule section. I searched for "World Cup" and got to https://www.paramountplus.com/shows/concacaf-qualifiers-road-to-qatar/ which lists 17 games. It has every game socceraction said except for Cuba vs. Curacao. All of start times are within 5 minutes of what socceraction said except for Cayman Islands vs. Canada, which I'm assuming was delayed. socceraction's time of 2:30 P.M. is what Wikipedia says, but Canada Soccer, Concacaf, and Paramount Plus say 4:00 P.M.
It's not clear when the first Concacaf game starts because https://www.fifa.com/worldcup/preliminaries/nccamerica/matches/match/400136271/#match-lineups says St. Kitts and Nevis vs. Puerto Rico will be at 4:00 P.M., which is three hours earlier than what socceraction and Flash Score say. A search says 4:00 P.M., and the St. Kitts and Nevis FA doesn't have a start time. I don't know if the start time was moved up on short notice.
As alluded to in another thread Paramount has the rights to the upcoming play in games for the Ocho.
Also the St Kitts - El Salvador , Curacao- Panama matches will be available on Universo on Saturday for those who want to watch on regular tv without apps.
They will show all the games, and you can open a game without seeing the score, which is useful if you want to watch all three second legs with one at 8:00 P.M. and two at 9:05 P.M.
I heard that the Canada- Honduras match and the El Salvador-USA match will be on Universo in Spanish.
Check the link for all of telemundo deportes upcoming games. https://www.telemundodeportes.com/envivo
So Honduras -USA will also be on Universo.
