Classic of the tenth round of the Carioca 2021 Championship, Fluminense x Botafogo takes place this Saturday (17), at 16h (Brasília time). Played at Maracanã, the match will be broadcast live only from the competition’s pay-per-view on pay TV – Record will not display the game on open TV. To watch online, the options are streaming FluTV, BotafogoTV and Cariocão TV, which are charged.
Without showing on Record, which obtained bad ratings when it broadcast a game of Botafogo in the championship and preferred to choose to show Flamengo x Portuguesa, also this Saturday (17th), but at 9.05 pm, the only option to see the classic on TV is to subscribe pay-per-view with pay-TV operators.
Companies such as Claro / Net, Vivo and Sky offer Cariocão packages. The monthly fee costs R $ 49.90, and it is also possible to close the package that includes all games in the competition for R $ 129.90.
