Qatar is the host of the 2022 FIFA World Cup. It’s the first time an Arab, Muslim-majority country is hosting the tournament, which is usually held in the summer months every four years, but was pushed back to November due to Qatar’s brutally hot summer climate. You can live stream World Cup matches on a host of different devices, including Roku, Amazon Fire TV, iPhone, Android TV, Apple TV, and more.
Although several live TV streaming services, including YouTube TV, Hulu + Live TV, fuboTV, and DIRECTV STREAM all carry FOX, FS1, and Telemundo, the channels that will carry the 2022 FIFA World Cup, our top pick is fuboTV. With fuboTV, soccer fans get access to World Cup matches in 4K, plus NBC and USA Network for streaming the remainder of the Premier League season once the World Cup champion has been crowned.

The 2022 FIFA World Cup Will Air, FOX, FS1, and Telemundo
FOX Sports recently renewed its TV contract with FIFA, winning the English language TV rights to air World Cup matches on FOX and FS1 through 2026. Spanish language World Cup matches will air on Telemundo, and live stream on Peacock. In the easy to use table below, we list the live TV streaming services that carry FOX, FS1, and Telemundo, and whether they currently offer a free trial.
Why DVR Matters for watching the World Cup
Qatar is 7 hours ahead of New York City, and 10 hours ahead of Los Angeles. Premier League fans in the U.S. are used to early start times, but it bears repeating for the rest of us, most World Cup matches will begin while most of us are asleep. Unless you want to get up very early, or stay up very late, to tune in to matches, it’s important to choose a streaming service that offers generous DVR storage. DIRECTV STREAM and YouTube TV offer unlimited DVR, while fuboTV users get 1,000 hours of DVR storage in the base package.

With its coverage of NBC and USA Network, we also like fuboTV for watching Premier League matches.
