The medal rounds featuring the quarterfinals, semifinals and finals will also be streamed live.
In addition, CBS Sports Network has announced that they will air all of the games mentioned above on a tape-delay basis, typically about 30 hours after the completion of the original contest. • Argentina – 1 p.m. ET (Aug. 21)
