Stream the World Cup in Spanish via Peacock Premium

Stream the World Cup in Spanish

Looking ahead to Qatar 2022, you can stream the World Cup in Spanish via Peacock Premium. Yes, the streaming service from NBCUniversal will stream every single game from the 2022 FIFA World Cup to subscribers. This includes every group stage game, knockout round, and even the final.

With Peacock Premium priced at $4.99 per month (and free for Comcast and COX customers), it’s certainly an attractive option.

The availability of the World Cup streaming on Spanish-language is courtesy of Telemundo Deportes. The Spanish-language network will introduce its new content brand called Tplus on Peacock later this fall. The NBCUniversal Spanish-language network expects to add a host of bilingual content to the new section of Peacock.

Highly-anticipated Messi film

Among the original content is a new documentary about Lionel Messi. The film features Messi’s coaches, doctors, journalists and teammates revealing the essence of who he is.

Soccer fans that wish to watch these World Cup games in English will still have to tune to FOX Sports for the upcoming tournament. Peacock Premium does, however, give Spanish-language Americans or even English-speaking fans that don’t mind watching games in Spanish, a streamlined way to watch all of the World Cup. I mean, who doesn’t love hearing the legendary Andrés Cantor call a game?

2022 World Cup TV schedule for fútbol fans

The announcement of the World Cup addition to Peacock will surely be welcomed news for Peacock users. Execs at the company claimed that the streaming service had over 50 million users as of June 2021, with 20 million of these customers being active users. NBCUniversal has previously expected these numbers to quickly rise in the near future.

Both Tplus and access to the World Cup matches in Spanish will only be available to Peacock Premium subscribers. Comcast, Xfinity, and Cox Cable subscribers currently have the ability to stream Peacock Premium for free; however, all other users will have to pay for the service. Subscribers can choose the $5 per month (or $50 annually) service with commercials, or $10 per month ($100 annually) for access to Peacock Premium without ads.

Watching the World Cup in English-language

Having said that, Telemundo Deportes will also broadcast games across its Telemundo and Universo networks.

For English-language only options, FOX Sports will broadcast games across FOX’s channels as well as the FOX Sports App. Consumers can stream FOX Sports content through fuboTV, Sling Blue, YouTube TV and other providers.

Plans for Tplus

“As the #1 producer of scripted Spanish-language content in the U.S., we are tapping into our deep production expertise and understanding of our audience to launch Tplus, the first and only content brand at scale focused on serving U.S. Hispanics who feel 100% Latino and 100% American,” claimed Beau Ferrari, Chairman of NBCUniversal Telemundo Enterprises.

Peacock’s Chairman, Direct-to-Consumer Matt Strauss reiterated Ferrari’s comments to add more Spanish-language content to their streaming service. “As the streaming home for Telemundo programming, we are focused on continuing to expand the Peacock catalog with premium content that resonates with Hispanic audiences everywhere,” he said.

“By tapping into the expertise of our partners at Telemundo,” Strauss continued, “we will provide customers with bold new originals, must-stream beloved franchises, and the biggest live sporting events that complement Peacock’s massive library of original, current, and classic movies and shows, as well as the best live news and sports, all in one place.”

Boost for cord cutters

Peacock offers cord cutters a way to watch the World Cup without cable or satellite. For NBCUniversal, it’ll be a huge boost to their Peacock numbers. Plus it gives consumers a chance to sample Peacock, in both English- and Spanish-language.
