How to Watch World Cup 2022 for Free

You are about to find out how to watch the World Cup 2022 for free. As you already know, the 2022 FIFA World Cup is currently underway in Qatar, and fans have already witnessed various upsets, most notably Saudi Arabia defeating Lionel Messi’s Argentina squad in their first game, as well as Japan’s unexpected victory over Germany. The World Cup is the most exciting sporting event in the world, and if you want to join in on the fun from the United States, you’ll need to have your streaming setup just right.

The best ways to watch the World Cup online in 2022 are detailed below, including instructions on how to watch World Cup 2022 for free online by using a virtual private network (VPN).

How to Watch World Cup 2022 for Free with VPN

Accessing a free live stream in another country with the use of a virtual private network (VPN) such as ExpressVPN or NordVPN is the best way to watch the World Cup 2022 for free online.

VPNs, or virtual private networks, are browser extensions or apps that “trick” your device into thinking it’s in another region. This allows you to access websites, streaming services, or different versions of U.S. streaming services (like Netflix) that are only available in other areas. Not only are VPNs safe, reliable, and easy to use, but the best VPN services are also very cheap.

In order to watch the World Cup 2022 for free via a VPN, you will first need to create an account with ExpressVPN or NordVPN and then add their extensions to your web browser. Both ExpressVPN and Nord VPN are excellent options for accessing legal and free live streams of the World Cup; however, ExpressVPN is marginally faster than Nord VPN, and Nord VPN offers a more significant number of server locations (i.e., more locations you can connect to).

After you have installed your VPN and set the location to somewhere in the UK, you will be able to watch every World Cup game in English for free on the BBC iPlayer or the ITV Hub. You also can set your location to anywhere in Australia so that you can watch every game for free on the SBS streaming platform.

ExpressVPN’s monthly service fee is $12.95 if you pay for it month-to-month, but it drops to $6.67 if you pay for it all at once for a year. You also get a 30-day money-back guarantee when you subscribe to either plan, which means that you could watch the entire World Cup and then get your $12.95 back after the competition is over.

The price of a monthly subscription to NordVPN is slightly lower at $11.99, and the service also includes a 30-day money-back guarantee. If you want to make a commitment of two years and pay the total amount of $80.73 upfront, you will be able to lower that cost to just $2.99 per month.

How to Watch World Cup 2022 in USA

Even if you don’t want to use a VPN, there are a lot of other ways to watch the World Cup online in the United States. Here are three of the best options, some of which even provide free World Cup live streams for select games.

1. Stream the World Cup on fuboTV

Getting a live TV streaming service like fuboTV is a great way to watch the World Cup online in the U.S. with English commentary. Fox and FS1 — the two channels providing English World Cup coverage in the United States — are both featured in fuboTV’s wide channel lineup, allowing you to watch every game live online.

A subscription to fuboTV usually costs $69.99 per month, but you can try the service for free for seven days. You also receive 1000 hours of cloud DVR storage, which is quite helpful for seeing the few World Cup games that take place early in the morning, according to the time zone in the United States.

2. Stream the World Cup on Sling

Sling is yet another excellent live TV streaming service that provides access to live streams of the World Cup that can be accessed online. Sling is the most cost-effective live TV streaming service because it delivers a large number of popular channels for only $40 per month (now discounted to $20 for your first month). The Blue package of this streaming service offers access to 41 channels, including Fox and FS1, so users may live stream the World Cup 2022.

3. Stream the World Cup on Peacock

The Peacock streaming platform, which is owned and operated by NBC, will provide live coverage of all 64 World Cup events. Peacock’s free subscription tier lets users view the first 12 matches, but in order to see the remaining games, users need to upgrade to the Premium subscription tier, which costs only $4.99 per month. Peacock, on the other hand, does not provide English commentary for their World Cup live streaming because they are actually simulstreams of Telemundo Deportes’ coverage of the tournament.
