The 2022 World Cup will be among the first to be fully available to watch via streaming.
With the rise of streaming in the soccer world, it is no surprise that it is a commonality for fans nowadays. In fact, the majority of soccer fans rely on platforms such as Peacock, ESPN+ or Paramount+ to get their full soccer fix.
In the United States, coverage of the World Cup is no different. Let’s break that down.
Watch the World Cup via streaming
For English-language audiences in the U.S., all 64 games air on either FOX or FOX Sports 1, the main sports channel from FOX. You can watch those channels on the vast majority of basic cable, satellite and streaming packages. Plus, FOX is available for free with a HD antenna.
However, you may not always be at your TV or have access to your cable box. FOX will simultaneously broadcast all games that air on FS1 and FOX on the FOX Sports app. To get access, you must input your TV provider information. However, once that is done, you can watch on your computer, phone or tablet. The reviews for the FOX Sports app are not great. However, you can use your TV provider login on your smart TV that has the FOX Sports app on it.
If you can’t watch the games live, every FIFA World Cup match will be available on-demand for free right after the final whistle on Tubi.
Peacock’s offering is ideal for cord cutters
For the Spanish-language coverage of World Cup 2022, Peacock is the home for streaming. For one, Peacock has the streaming broadcast of all 64 games at the World Cup. Yes, games still air on Telemundo and Universo. However, if fans already have a Peacock subscription for the Premier League, this is one easy click away.
Also, Peacock will have a 24/7 channel for Spanish-language audiences dedicated solely to World Cup coverage. Telemundo and Universo will, unsurprisingly, have different content while Qatar goes to sleep. However, this channel, which is exclusive to Peacock, provides updates, highlights and news regarding the World Cup for the American Spanish-language audiences.
Watch every 2022 World Cup game
Includes: All 64 World Cup games in Spanish
Of course, dedicated streaming services also carry FOX, FS1, Telemundo and Universo. Platforms such as fuboTV, YouTube TV and Vidgo tend to have both channels for English- and Spanish-language coverage. Fortunately, there are no games that require a certain streaming service. While some leagues such as the Premier League have a mix of over-the-air games and streaming games, you can watch the World Cup via streaming and traditional TV.
