TVULite lets you watch your favorite team play anytime you’re connected to a Wi-Fi network. This app gives you access to 300 TVU Network channels from around the world.

However, for the most part, you can easily find your favorite soccer match and watch it in real time.

I no longer have to wait until I get to the office to be on top of the action.
