The World Cup begins tomorrow and it is expected to be one of the biggest sports events of the summer. This year, the World Cup is being played in Russia.
Since this is expected to be one of the biggest sporting events of the summer, there are going to be some methods on how to stream it for all of you cord cutters out there. Note that these methods are for the English-speaking American networks. It will be broadcasted this year on FOX and FOX Sports 1 (FS1).
As for ways on how to stream this event, one of the top options for those that have a cable and satellite subscription will be with the FOX Sports GO app and website. You will have to sign in with your credentials.
The best experience for the FOX Sports GO service will be through the Apple TV for those who want to watch the game on the big screen. With that said, on the FOX Sports GO app, users can stream up to four games at once.
Since the games are being broadcasted on FOX and FS1, there will likely only be two games going on at most. In the FOX Sports GO app on the Apple TV, once you sign in, you can stream both games at once (pending that your plan has FS1 and there are two games being played at once).
This works for many cable and satellite providers, along with popular live TV streaming services such as Sling TV, Hulu With Live TV and YouTube TV.
When it comes to streaming FOX, this is going to be a little harder. Obviously, you can do this on FOX Sports GO as long as you sign in with a valid TV provider, but after that, it’s going to come down to live TV streaming services. However, FOX is only going to be available on those services in big cities like Chicago or New York City. YouTube TV will have it for most locations they are in, but as for the others, it’s going to be hit-or-miss.
The good thing that does come from all of that is that most live TV streaming services do let you see what channels are available in your area before you sign up for the service.
