How to Enjoy the World Cup Without Paying for Cable

How to Enjoy the World Cup Without Paying for Cable: A blog about how to watch the world cup and other national soccer teams without cable.

It’s about that time again. The World Cup is here, and soon, we’ll all be watching our favorite nations battle it out on the pitch. But, you may be asking yourself, how can I enjoy this glorious event without paying for cable? The answer is simple! It’s 2018. You don’t need cable anymore!

If you want to watch the World Cup without cable in real time, you have a few options. If you’re willing to put down some cash, you can buy a sports package from either DirecTV or Sling TV (more on those later). If you have an antenna or are willing to buy one and live near enough to a local broadcast station, you can also watch many of the games for free with an over-the-air antenna setup. You can also watch some games online through Fox Sports Go if your pay TV provider offers it as part of your plan.

The first match is on June 14. Below are several ways you can enjoy it—and all the other games—without paying for cable.

The World Cup begins next week, and if you’re a soccer fan like me, you know how agonizing it is to watch the game without cable. I’m here to help my fellow soccer fans out by telling you exactly how to enjoy the World Cup (and other national soccer teams) without paying for cable.

First, a little bit about me: I’ve been a diehard soccer fan since I was five years old. My first love is Manchester United, but I also support the USMNT, and have since they beat England in 1950. I even attended the 2010 South Africa World Cup, where I got to see them narrowly lose to Ghana in the quarterfinals. However, there are several other teams that are fun to watch, including Spain (my pick to win it all), Argentina, Germany and Brazil. If you’re wondering why I don’t mention England as one of these other fun teams, it’s because I’m an Arsenal fan (and we all know how disappointing they can be).

Anyway, back to watching soccer without cable: First off, you need an internet connection. This will give you access to online streams of every televised match during this year’s World Cup

The World Cup is coming soon and there is a lot of interest in how to watch the games without pay for cable. There are two main ways I have found to watch the games without paying for cable.

The first is through an antenna and the second is using over-the-top television services. Both options work well for me and I will go into more detail about them below.


In order to use an antenna you need to make sure that you are watching a network which broadcasts the games on their channel in your area. You can check out this list from Wikipedia to see which channels broadcast where. If you can’t find one on that list then you can search’s website.

Once you figure out which channel will have the matches airing, you need to make sure that you have an antenna that works well enough to receive channels in your area. You can do this by checking out TV Fool’s website or AntennaWeb’s website. These websites will show you what channels are available and what kinds of antennas work best in your area.

Over-the-Top Television Services

Over-the-top television services include services like SlingTV, PlayStation Vue, and others which allow you

The World Cup is almost here and if you don’t have cable, you might be wondering how to watch it. The good news is that you can watch the World Cup without cable. In fact, it’s actually easier than ever to watch the biggest sporting event without paying for cable TV.

I’ll tell you how to watch the World Cup in a second – and even show you how to watch the World Cup for free. But first, I want to tell you a little bit about soccer (football) and the World Cup.

The thing about soccer is that everyone loves it except Americans. Seriously though, soccer has a cult following in America. People who love soccer (or football) are super passionate. They’ll dress up in their country’s colors and paint their faces or heads before they go out to a bar or pub and watch the game with other Superfans wearing their country’s colors. They’ll scream at the TV when their team scores or misses a shot or gets fouled or whatever else happens in the game.

But Soccer isn’t all that popular on TV in America yet because of our love for other sports like football, baseball and basketball. And ever since ESPN got really big, they’ve been trying really hard to make other sports popular on TV

If you’ve been reading this blog for any length of time, you know that I’m a big soccer fan. I’m also a big World Cup fan. When the US was in the World Cup 2 years ago, I was completely wrapped up in the entire thing.

And if you’re a soccer fan, you know that there is no bigger event in the world of soccer than the FIFA World Cup. The entire world is watching as 32 countries compete for one of the most prestigious awards in sports: being crowned champion of the World Cup.

This year it will be held in Russia, and if you’re anything like me, you don’t have cable TV anymore and are trying to find ways to watch all of those fun games without paying hundreds of dollars a month for it. Fortunately, there are plenty of ways to enjoy this summer’s World Cup action without having to pay for cable!

Let’s start with what we can’t do: watch on regular television. FOX has exclusive rights to broadcast the World Cup in America on their networks (FOX and FS1). They are also broadcasting it online at their website and apps. However, they require a valid cable subscription login to view any live content through their apps or website.

But what about other ways? Well,

If you’re like me and don’t have cable, it can be tricky to keep up with all your favorite sports events. However, I’ve found a few techniques that make the process easier, and I’m going to outline them below.

The first thing you need to know is that there are multiple events on at the same time. The World Cup happens every four years, while other tournaments like the Olympics happen every two years.

In order to watch a game live, you’ll need an internet connection. You can either get one from your service provider or use a wireless router. If you’re using Wi-Fi, make sure it’s secure and not open to anyone else using it. If you’re using Wi-Fi on public transportation (like the subway), then make sure you’re connected securely before streaming video over it.

Once you have an internet connection, head over to ESPN3 or Fox Sports Go for all your soccer needs! These sites will let you stream all of their available games in real time without needing a cable subscription (though many do have ads).

If you have an Amazon Fire Stick or Chromecast, then try HDHomeRun for live TV channels like NBC Sports Network. You’ll need an antenna and tuner though; luckily both are

Tips for watching soccer in general:

1. I stream through the app Kodi on my Xbox One (version 14.2 Helix). It’s a great app and I use it for more than just soccer, but it is an alternative to paying for cable. Once you download Kodi on your device, you will need to open the app and then click on “add-ons” and then “download” and then click on the left side where it says “video add-ons”. You can browse through the hundreds of different add-ons available, but these are my favorite three for watching soccer:

a. SportsDevil – You can find this one under add-ons that I believe start with a “Q” or an “S” (not sure how they were organized). This one has a huge selection of games from all over the world, but some streams don’t work or won’t load (e.g., beIN Sports, ESPN3), so it might take a little trial and error to find a good game to watch. The ones that I have found to work are,, LiveTV
