To watch the FIFA World Cup in English in the U.S., you'll have to turn to Fox Sports, which has exclusive rights to all the games.

The 2026 World Cup promises to be a ratings bonanza, as the entire continent will be engulfed by soccer fervor and television networks will reap the benefits of an impassioned public and TV-friendly broadcast times. In addition, the Foxsports.com.au football team will bring readers news stories, video highlights, analysis and colour throughout the duration of the world's most watched tournament. These apps will help you to live stream the games on your smartphone directly.

You can watch the stream via the Android app or on the website. That means fewer casual viewers for Fox and a missed opportunity to promote an American team.

Additionally, You'll need to login with a pay-TV provider to access the matches. For the first time ever, World Cup fans searching on Google for their favorite teams, matches, and scores in Spanish in the U.S. will see close to real-time video highlights from Telemundo Deportes.

Jio had earlier annouced live streaming of all the FIFA World Cup matches on its Jio TV app to entice the football fans in India. In case, you don't wish to subscribe to the service; you will only be able to catch the action with a 5-minute delay, that too with advertisements in between.

The poster eulogising Portugal captain Ronaldo as the best player in the tournament was installed by a trio of CR7 fans - Danish, Muksith and Ajmal.Portugal, coming into the tournament as the 2016 European champions, will begin their World Cup campaign against Spain, among the favourites for the top prize, on Friday at 11.30 pm (IST). But with options like online streaming and TV broadcast, one can still match the pace.

Apple has also taken care of its football fans. It will also offer exclusives along with reviews, previews and behind-the-scene match snippets. Russian Federation and Saudi Arabia meet in the first game at 11 a.m. ET on Thursday, June 14. Get the app from the Play Store here. Telemundo, part of Comcast Corp.'s NBCUniversal Inc., replaced Univision as the U.S. Spanish-language rights holder.

You can watch all FIFA World Cup 2018 matches live online via Sony's TV channels. In the United Kingdom, it's BBC and ITV doing the broadcasting honors.
