You can watch the World Cup in the USA in a variety of ways. Streaming, OTA, cable, satellite, you name it. Americans have seemingly endless opportunities to watch the World Cup.

Of course, the major challenge now is figuring out the best way to watch the World Cup. It differs for everybody, based on different factors. Also, keep in mind that the kickoff times for the World Cup in Qatar are early, even for fans of European soccer. The first games kick off at 5 a.m. ET every day, with the last game set for 2 p.m. ET.

However, we can lay out all the options available for people in the United States looking to watch the most popular sporting event in the world.

Where can I watch the World Cup in the USA?

English-language content

For those looking for English-language coverage, you can watch the World Cup in the USA via FOX. In terms of TV, FOX puts all the World Cup games on either its linear channel or FS1. The major games, such as those involving the USMNT or the semifinal and Final, are available on FOX. The full schedule is subject to change, depending on how important certain games are.

Cable, satellite and streaming platforms like fuboTV or Hulu + Live TV carry both of those channels.

Spanish-language content

For the millions of Americans looking for where to watch the World Cup in the USA, everything runs through Telemundo and related channels. Telemundo’s OTA channel will have the majority of games. Any of those not on Telemundo are available via Universo. Like FS1, Universo does require some form of subscription to watch, as it is not an OTA channel.

However, if you have a subscription to Peacock Premium, which is $4.99 per month, you can live stream all 64 matches at the World Cup. Plus, there are on-demand replays of all games and a 24/7 channel that has news, replays and highlights of games. Again, this is exclusively in Spanish on Peacock Premium.
