D.C. United’s new TV partner, FloSports, is exclusively broadcasting most of the club’s matches in 2019, and it had a bumpy rollout for local soccer fans. Now United is trying to make amends.

The club announced “complimentary subscriptions” to FloFC, the soccer division of FloSports, for the remainder of April, which includes live coverage of three United matches.

FloSports, an over-the-top streaming service, replaced WJLA as United’s broadcast partner this year. Fans were initially disappointed they would have to sign up for something new to watch 21 of the club’s 34 games in 2019.

That disappointment turned to anger for the first match broadcast on the streaming service March 10, as FloSports accidentally blocked many viewers in the District area who were supposed to be able to see it.

The three matches United fans will get to see if they try the free trial are April 9 against Montreal Impact, April 13 at Colorado Rapids and April 24 at Columbus Crew. The team has posted instructions on its website.

Like any free trial you may have tested out before, beware that FloSports will charge you $71.88 for a year’s subscription on May 1 if you don’t cancel before the free trial is up.
