Currently, all the soccer fans in the world are focused on the biggest stage in the world: the FIFA World Cup! And truly, there is no better feeling than the adrenaline rush you get when watching an intense game. You might not be the one playing out in the field, and you are also not the one sitting in the stands, but you still feel the thrill and the excitement. Of course, to keep this energy going, and to be able to stream this event in the first place, you need to arrange the right TV channel or streaming service.

While the World Cup has already started at this point, if you have missed the opening, you can still arrange to watch the rest of it peacefully from the comfort of your home. You don’t need those sketchy websites with ads popping up on your screen disturbing you from the game. To assist you in your streaming experience, we have compiled a list of channels where you can watch the game and the ways you can do it too.

So, without any delays, let’s dig right into the topic!

Which Channels Are Airing the Soccer World Cup 2022?

You can stream all 64 World Cup Games on FOX and FS1 combined. You will find English-language coverage for all of these games on these channels too. But, if you are looking for Spanish-language coverage, you could stream the games on Universo and Telemundo. If you are wondering whether you can find ALL the games streamed on one channel only, you can’t. This is why we recommend that you get both channels (English or Spanish). This way you can stream all of the games.

Summarizing this, we can make the following table:

English coverage channels Spanish coverage channels

FOX (35 games)

Telemundo (56 games)

FS1 (29 games)

Universo (8 games)

These channels are easy access for anyone that already has a TV plan. If you do not have these channels yet, you can always add them to your channel lineup with a little extra fee. Additionally, you can stream the game live through the FOX Sports app. To watch full match replays, you can get Tubi. To get match updates, just check Twitter.

As for Spanish coverage, you can stream the game live on the Telemundo Deportes app. Otherwise, you can watch it on-demand or live on Peacock, where you will get to watch all 64 games in Spanish.

What Are the Best Ways to Watch the World Cup Games?

The best way to watch the World Cup Games is none other than TV. Of course, that is if you aren’t in the stadium. Besides TV, you can even stream the matches on paid subscription services. To make things simpler for you, we have written down the different options you have to watch the FIFA World Cup matches.

Fox and Fox Sports 1 (FS1)

Fox owns the exclusive rights to broadcast the World Cup in the U.S. in English. This means that if you are already subscribed to a TV plan with Fox and FS1 in the channel lineup, you have nothing to worry about. You can stream all the matches for the Soccer World Cup 2022 on these two channels. If you don’t have a TV provider, you can rush to get one, or even better, just watch the match through a live TV streaming subscription.

Sling TV

Sling TV is an app-based TV service where you can get access to TV channels for a little fee. You can stream the FIFA matches on Fox and FS1 on your phone with this TV subscription. You can watch it live or on-demand, whichever suits you best.

FuboTV

FuboTV is another TV streaming service in the U.S. with which you can stream live sports matches like the FIFA World Cup. Since FuboTV is a sports-centric streaming service, you can find most sports channels that include NFL, NBA, NHL, MLB, MLS, ESPN, NBC, CBS, and of course, Fox and FS1.

DirecTV Stream

While DirecTV is more of an expensive option, it is worth the money considering that you are getting all the sports networks and channels that you could want. ESPN, FOX, FS1, NBC, and more all come as part of a package.

Hulu+ LiveTV

A Hulu+ LiveTV subscription will give you access to FOX and FS1 so you can stream the World Cup Games. The best thing about this streaming service is the variety you get. Unlike other subscription services that focus on one thing, like sports or entertainment-only, Hulu+ LiveTV gets you shows, news, sports, and many other channels.

Peacock

For those of you who want to stream the games in Spanish, you will find that you can stream all 64 matches on Peacock with Spanish coverage. Keeping in mind that everything good comes at a price, Peacock allows people to stream the first 12 matches for free, but if you want to watch the rest of the games, you need to pay for a subscription.

How Can I Watch The FIFA World Cup For Free?

While you could pay for a subscription or just pay to go watch the FIFA World Cup in person, there are options to watch it for free as well. Quite surprising, isn’t it? Well, as surprising as it is and as impossible as it sounds, it is very much true. So, let’s take a look at our free options!

Tubi

Tubi is a free streaming service, however, the only downside here is that you can’t stream live matches. You can watch complete re-runs of the match free of cost and you don’t even need to sign up to get access to it. Aside from this, you can find a large on-demand library of movies, shows, and much more. Like any other free service, you will have to face ads while using this service, so you should be prepared for that. Additionally, the maximum resolution for Tubi is 720p so, while you can watch the match on phones and tablets, watching on the TV will be quite annoying.

FIFA+

FIFA+ is another free streaming service launched by FIFA themselves to enable people to enjoy soccer without having to pay a cent. However, the same condition applies here, and that is that you won’t be able to stream live matches, but you can watch re-runs. You can also watch the older FIFA matches and get news daily about other competitions around the world. The FIFA World Cup Fantasy Game can also be played on this app. You can download this app from the App Store or Google Play on your phones and tablets.

Bringing It All Together

This marks the end of our blog on the FIFA World Cup 2022 and how you can stream the matches at home. So, are you going to be streaming live or will you wait for the re-runs and stream them then? Whichever you choose, we hope that this blog was of use to you in finding the right sources and platforms to stream. So now that you are done reading, what are you still doing here? Set your alarms, turn on the TV, laptop, or phone, and get streaming!
