Additionally, a live CBS Sports Network stream is available through www.CBSSports.com and the CBS Sports App by authenticating with select providers.
“We are extremely excited to be able to deliver live coverage of our competition to our loyal fans in its entirety through this partnership with CBS,” said ISL Founder Konstantin Grigorishin. “We are committed to building out and deepening our partnership with CBS Sports, who truly understand what the ISL is and will help us grow for the benefit of the entire swimming community.
“All ISL fans will have access through their computers, tablets and mobile devices to the entire ISL Season 3 live.”
The ISL signed a multi-year agreement with CBS prior to the beginning of Season 2 after streaming on ESPN in the United States for its inaugural campaign in 2019.
In addition to the CBS coverage, swimming fans in the U.S. can also stream all of the matches on the ISL website with a subscription.
The only other known broadcasting partner for the ISL for the upcoming season is Sky Italia for viewers in Italy.
