The 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup starts Friday, June 7 and runs through Sunday, July 7. If you want to watch the games without cable, you’ve got options—depending on where you live. Here’s how to watch.
If You Do Have a Cable TV Login
Fox is broadcasting all the games in the tournament, and if you have cable TV, you can watch the games on the Fox and FS1 channels. You can find the full schedule of games (and which Fox channel they air on) on the Fox website.
You can also watch the games on your mobile device using the Fox Sports App.
If You Don’t Have a Cable TV Login
If you don’t have a cable TV login, you can stream the games online. The catch is that you’ll still have to get them through a streaming service that carries Fox and FS1. Fortunately, most of the popular streaming services do, including Sling, YouTube TV, Hulu with Live TV, DirecTV Now, and PlayStation Vue.
Even better, most of these services offer some kind of reduced-rate trial period so you can at least try them out first. None require long-term contracts, either, so you could always sign up for a month, get your soccer on, and then cancel your subscription.
Having Issues Bypassing Geographic Restrictions? Use a VPN
Whether you’re traveling from your home country or live in a place that has ridiculous restrictions on what’s available, the solution to bypassing restrictions is always to use a VPN, which will make it appear as if you are coming from a different location. Our VPN picks are these:
- ExpressVPN: This VPN choice is incredibly fast, easy to use, and has very user-friendly clients for every platform.
- StrongVPN: This VPN isn’t quite as user-friendly, but is very fast and tends to be useful for bypassing restrictions because it’s not quite as well known.
In general, the way to bypass restrictions is to switch the VPN server to another country that has access to the website you’re trying to view. If it’s still blocked, try a different server. Both of the choices offer free trials, so you won’t have to pay for something that doesn’t work for you.
