Major League Soccer has a new television deal with Fox Sports 1, ESPN and Univision that will create a nationally televised game on each of the the of channels, according to Andrew Das of the New York Times.

Under the new deal, the networks will have exclusive rights to national broadcasts of MLS and U.S. Men's National Team games, and will broadcast around 125 of the leagues games each season.

The Times report notes that MLS matches have as many as 20 different start times under the current television deal, inevitably leading to some confusion among viewers. The new agreement will focus viewership on Univision's Friday night "Game of the Week" and on a Sunday evening double header aired on ESPN and Fox Sports 1 at 5 p.m. and 7 p.m.
