How to watch World Cup 2022 on Mobile
In the group stage of the 2022 World Cup, there are still games to be played. There are still teams competing to advance to the knockout stage. But the United States is not one of them, having secured second place in Group B after defeating Iran 1-0 on November 29. This sets up a Round of 16 encounter on Saturday, December 3 at 10:00 a.m. Eastern versus the Netherlands. In the United States, the match will air on Fox.
The final match of the group stage might be won at a high price. Christian Pulisic scored in the 38th minute but was injured as he collided with Iran’s goalie Alireza Beiravand. Pulisic returned to the field until halftime, when he was replaced.
The U.S. has a few days to straighten everything out, however, before its must-win match against the Dutch.
There were no indications of the international intrigue that preceded the first whistle within the game itself. Obviously, Iran and the United States haven’t had great relations for decades, so this was a natural plot point. And a social media controversy sparked by the U.S. soccer federation — not the squad itself — only exacerbated the pregame hysteria. At kickoff, though, everything changed.
The next opponent for the United States is a Dutch team that has won two of its three group games, beating Senegal and Qatar while drawing with Ecuador.
At 2:00 p.m. on December 4, England and Senegal will also play. There are still a few more Round of 16 spots to fill. Here’s how to watch the remainder of the 2018 FIFA World Cup, which concludes on December 18.
How to watch the World Cup for free in 2022
In the United States, you will be able to view all 64 matches on either Fox or FS1. Both networks are available on every major streaming provider in the United States, which is great because it makes streaming the 2022 World Cup really simple. There are 35 matches on Fox and 29 on FS1 — a rather even split.
Here is how the primary services are broken down. (Note that broadcast availability — meaning Fox proper — may vary slightly based on your location.)
Noting that these streaming providers all offer free trials, you can watch the World Cup for free as long as the trials are active.
Additionally, every match will be accessible via the Fox Sports app. This approach requires a subscription to either cable, satellite, or a livestreaming provider. This does not necessitate that you own the subscription.
How to see World Cup matches in 4K and HDR
And thanks to your screen, this may be the most visually appealing World Cup in history. Multiple locations will offer 4K and high dynamic range (HDR) broadcasts of the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
Fox has announced that every World Cup match would be shown in 4K. You will also be able to view each match in 4K via the Fox Sports app, YouTube TV, and FuboTV. It’s worth noting, just for the purists, that unlike Fox’s Super Bowl LIV coverage (which was actually a 1080p image upscaled to 4K), this time Fox promises it will shoot and broadcast the games in native 4K. The studio elements will continue to be improved, however.
A 4K broadcast provides the maximum resolution, making it easier to see fine details. 60 frames per second (fps) is another component of Fox’s 4K coverage, and it’s the key to making 4K detail visible even when the action is extremely rapid. The grass will appear greener, team clothes will be more vibrant, and the ball may be easier to see due to HDR’s increased contrast.
You must subscribe to a cable, satellite, or streaming provider in order to use the Fox Sports app to view matches in 4K.
YouTube TV, on the other hand, requires you to subscribe to its 4K Plus add-on in order to access any 4K material, live or otherwise. The first month is free, which is sufficient to watch the full World Cup. The 4K Plus option is then available for $10 per month for the first year, and $20 per month thereafter. In addition to live sports, 4K on-demand programming is also accessible.
You should undoubtedly watch the World Cup in 4K regardless of the mode you employ. It is vastly improved.
