Here’s everything you need to know about where to watch.
The 2018 FIFA World Cup kicks off on June 14, with the first of 64 matches featuring Russia facing off with Saudi Arabia at 11 a.m. ET/8 a.m. PT on Thursday.
For the traditional types, the World Cup airs on TV through July 15, and will be broadcast in the US in English on Fox and Fox Sports 1, and in Spanish on Telemundo and NBC Universo. Fox Sports and Telemundo will also stream the matches online if you have a cable subscription, plus you’ll be able to watch the games via mobile for iOS and Android through the Fox Sports app and Telemundo Deportes en Vivo if you sign in with your cable provider.
But if you don’t have a cable subscription, there are still plenty of ways to watch the World Cup online – although none of them are free.
Hulu customers with Live TV subscriptions will have live stream access to all of the World Cup matches airing on Fox, FS1 and Telemundo, along with a dedicated World Cup hub that will list all live and upcoming games throughout the tournament. Hulu will also roll out a simulcast option during the semifinals and finals with five bonus views for each match. A Hulu with Live TV subscription costs $39.99 a month after a one week free trial.
YouTube TV subscribers can also watch the World Cup online as part of the service’s monthly TV package, which is $40 a month following a one week free trial.
Cord-cutters who subscribe to DirecTV Now can live stream the World Cup or record the matches onto the service’s True Cloud DVR for $35 a month, including a one week free trial. New subscribers can get their first three months for $10 with the service’s current promotional offer.
Sling TV offers an alternative to a cable subscription with live stream bundles that include Fox and FS1 starting at $25 a month, along with a free one week trial. Or if you’re really looking to save money and don’t care about the commentary, you can opt for Sling’s International Sports package, which lets you watch the World Cup live in French and Brazilian Portuguese for $10 a month.
PS Vue will give subscribers access to Fox and FS1 for all World Cup matches starting at $34.99 a month, plus a five day free trial.
