World Cup

World Cup Viewer’s Guide now available for download

The 2018 FIFA World Cup kicks off on June 14. And there are so many options for viewers in the United States to watch the world’s most exciting sports tournament.

In our research to uncover all of the details for the guide, we spoke to several executives in the soccer industry over the last few months. We then compiled the information into the World Cup Viewer’s Guide, which is available as a free download to World Soccer Talk readers.

The questions we answer include everything from commentators to TV schedules to how many games will be shown on each network and which options are best for streaming. Plus we go into more depth about everything from highlights and replays to video-on-demand and HD broadcasts. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

Also included with the World Cup Viewer’s Guide is the free World Soccer Talk email newsletter.

    Do you know anything about potential radio coverage in English? Is Fox Sports Radio the rights holder?

    The article is not specific and dances around Telemundo’s national HD signal. My local Telemundo is a low power station so OTA is not an option.

      No dancing, Juan. Just the facts. There are many options to watch Telemundo, which are mentioned in the guide.

        Thanks for the reply Christopher. Looks like still no news/answer on Telemundo having a national HD signal by the time the WC comes.

          According to Telemundo, all of the games are produced in HD but not all of the local Telemundo channels broadcast in HD.

            Hi Christopher,
            The Telemundo channel on my cable is only in SD with black stripes on the screen. On a different note: I wish I could spend a month overseas or even in Canada and watch the World Cup in style. I wish I was living in one of the small towns along the USA-Canada border where Canadian TV is available. Keep up the great work on WST.

    This would be the worst world cup coverage! Horrible commentators, bad choice for when it comes pundits. Now, we misssed ESPN in a big time.

    This is Terrible! Are we really going to listen the likes of John Strong, Dellacamera, Alexi Lalas in a world cup match???? GOD Help us! Why an earth don’t they use Martin Tyler, JON champion, Ian Darke, Alan Parry, Peter Drury, Daniel Mann, Rob Howthorne and on and on and on on on???? All of those comms are available! I have to find illegal stream to watch BBC and ITV’s coverage! I can’t listen John Strong and Lalas.

      you’re being a bit harsh including lalas w/ the other fox fools. lalas/costigan are almost as good as NBCSN’s commentators. at least lalas was a world class player, he was at parma when serie A was the best league in europe, and he was playing every game and was a strong center back. he does know the game. that’s different from the rest of the fox fools who have no clue. it is seriously disappointing the only way to watch w/ sound will be spanish stations. it is driving me nuts muting the CL matches, there is no way i’m listening to f/wit strong and halfwit holden.
