FIFA World Cup 2018 Live Streaming: How to Watch World Cup 2018 Online Free
- FIFAWorld Cup 2018 Live Streaming through BBC and ITV
If you live in the United Kingdom, your best bet to watch World Cup 2018 online free is through BBC and ITV. The two channels have the TV right to cover and show the World Cup and will be live streaming the FIFA World Cup 2018 through their online streaming platforms.
To get the FIFA World Cup 2018 live streaming on BBC, you would need the BBC’s iPlayer, and to get it on ITV, you need the ITV Player. The two channels are free to watch; however, they are geo-restricted to the United Kingdom, meaning if you don’t live in the UK, you would be able to watch World Cup 2018 online free through the channels.
The way out of this restriction is to get a strong VPN. See this post on how to get a strong VPN that you can use to bypass the geo-restriction of both channels.
- FIFAWorld Cup 2018 Live Streaming through Fox World Cup 2018 Channel
In the United States, FIFA World Cup 2018 live streaming is exclusive to FoxSports. If you live in the country, you can Watch World Cup 2018 online free through the FoxSports’ official website or mobile app. But as BBC’s iPlayer and ITV Player are geo-restricted to the UK, FoxSports is geo-restricted to the United States.
Therefore, you would also be needing a VPN to watch World Cup 2018 online free via FoxSports – if you live outside the United States. The VPN would help you change your country’s IP address to that of the United State. As for BBC’s iPlayer and ITV Player, you need a VPN that would help you change your IP to that of the United Kingdom.
- FIFAWorld Cup 2018 Live Streaming through Kodi, Xbox and PS4
Kodi is one of the most popular TV streaming app around; with it, you can watch World Cup 2018 online free. The platform is open source – and it is available for Windows, Mac, Android, Amazon Fire TV 3 and Mi Box. FIFA World Cup 2018 live streaming with Kodi is through BBC iPlayer, ITV player and FoxSports GO channel in the app.
To stream the channel, you would still be needing a VPN, if you leave outside of the United Kingdom and the United States.
Xbox and PS4 game consoles have the capability for streaming online video, too. So you can watch World Cup 2018 online free through them. BBC iPlayer, ITV player and FoxSports GO are the streaming channel, too – so non-UK and non-US viewers still need a VPN.
- FIFAWorld Cup 2018 Live Streaming through Online Football Streaming Websites
I have already published a post on how to watch football matches free. And in the post, I talk about some online football streaming channels that air live league matches from English Premier League, to La Liga, to Bundesliga, etc. Some of the websites would still live stream and allow you to watch World Cup 2018 online free.
Check the post on how to watch football matches free to see the online stream websites you can use to watch World Cup 2018 online free. Note, however, that watching football matches through the online football streaming websites comes at a cost – no money cost, though. Just that you would have to cope with lots of annoying pop-ups that you can’t block.
If you block them, the online football steam website wouldn’t allow you to stream the matches.
The ball in your court: you can either get a good VPN and watch World Cup 2018 online free through BBC iPlayer, ITV player and FoxSports GO – or try as much as possible to cope with the annoying pop-ups of online football stream websites. Either way, you are sure not to miss any match of the World Cup.
