How to watch World Cup 2022

For many Americans, the Super Bowl may be the most important athletic event of the year, but the World Cup tops the list when polled internationally.

The massive competition, which begins on November 20 and lasts through December 18, is a truly global occasion. Additionally, no one could have understood COVID-19 the first time it was held. Before the pandemic's initial breakouts, which would take place after another year,

This year's World Cup offers a near absurd amount of potential dramatic storylines, especially for an event this big. For instance, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are probably playing their last season this year. After missing out entirely on the 2018 World Cup, the United States is attempting to reclaim some of its lost respect. The most dominating team on the field, Italy, won't be participating at all since they didn't make the tournament.

Even the most devoted football/soccer enthusiasts will find it difficult to keep up with everything. However, it's a fascinating sight to see even if you're only a casual lover of the sport. (And if that weren't enough, other games, like the semifinals, take place during the workday around midday, providing you a great justification to sabotage your productivity.)

Overwhelmed? Here is all you need to know.

When is the 2022 World Cup's first game?

On November 20 at 11:00 a.m. Eastern Time, Lusail Stadium in Doha, Qatar will see the first kickoff. The single game that day pits the host squad against Ecuador. (With 15 extra Group Stage games scheduled for the remainder of the week, it will be even busier.)

Will I be able to watch the 2022 World Cup without a cable package?

Some of it, but not all. The World Cup will be shown on Fox and Telemundo, both of which may be seen without a cable subscription since they can be received over the air in most places.

Make careful to test the antenna in different parts of your house to make sure you're receiving the most dependable signal. However, keep in mind that FS1, which will broadcast a lot of games for English-speaking viewers, won't allow you to watch games.

How can I watch the 2022 World Cup online without a cable package?

There are various choices available to you:


Spanish-language broadcasts of all 64 World Cup games are available on NBC's streaming service. Additionally, broadcasts of completed games will be available on demand. (Note that no alternate English broadcast has yet been publicised. A $5 or $10 monthly fee is required after a seven-day free trial. (Live sports are not offered by Peacock's free edition.)

Using Live TV on Hulu

Additionally, this service no longer provides a free trial. You'll have to pay $70 each month.


After a trial period of up to two weeks, you may anticipate paying $65 each month.

The lower-tiered "Orange" Sling TV subscription from Dish Network costs $35 per month. The price increases to $50 per month when the more comprehensive "Blue" plan is added. The cord-cutting service is now halving the cost of the first month during the seven-day free trial period.

DirecTV Online

This often changed streaming service will cost you $70 per month and up after the free trial option. It was formerly known as DirecTV Now, AT&T TVNow, and AT&T TV.

Fox TV

In most locations, this sports-focused cord-cutting service offers broadcast networks. Depending on the channels you choose, a seven-day free trial is followed by monthly fees of $70-$100.

Where will the World Cup be held in 2022?

The World Cup is now being held in Qatar in the Middle East for the first time ever. Since a summer tournament in that nation would have to take into account the extreme heat, that is why the event is taking place so late this year.

Why are there demonstrations against the 2022 World Cup?

Although FIFA has annoyed many people over the years, this year's World Cup's venue has angered many. Qatar criminalises men's consensual gay behaviour, demands that women seek men's consent before getting married or travelling, and has detained journalists who were looking into the treatment of migrant workers. The nation's working conditions have been likened to contemporary slavery. Even so, it may have an effect on World Cup viewing. In Germany, some bar owners are refusing to broadcast the games. Paris also said that it will not create fan zones with enormous displays to watch the games.
