USA vs. Argentina crushes TV and streaming ratings records

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

The United States' loss to Argentina in the Copa America Centenario semifinals was seen by a lot of people. With each passing match since the final group match, the USMNT have broken Fox Sports 1's record for ratings for a soccer match. This match was no exception and in fact, it destroyed the record.

3.29 million viewers tuned in on FS1 alone for the important match. For reference, the USA's quarterfinal win over Ecuador previously held the record with 2.13 million.

The match also set the Fox Sports Go record for most unique streamers with 228,000, beating the 2015 Women's World Cup Final between the USA and Japan (207,000).

Those numbers only factor in the English language TV networks. Univision are enjoying some amazing success with viewership during the Copa America as well. 4.8 million people watched the semifinal on the Univision networks carrying the match. And on the whole, Univision Deportes was the most-watched sports network in the United States in June.

Needless to say, TV viewership for the Copa America has been nothing short of a smashing success.
