Watch FIFA World Cup Live Online For Free.

All agmes will be available on the internet through online networks which you can access live in several ways. Below are some of the ways and devices you can use to get free live action through official sources using a VPN account.

Live Streaming Feeds trough VPN:

BBC and ITV has the live coverage rights in the UK and they produce the best coverage for international football events such as World Cup etc.

In the UK, ITV and BBC will not only have extensive TV coverage but they will also showing matches live through their online platforms like “ITV Player” and “BBC iplayer” but you will need a UK IP address.

So lets say you are in South Africa and want english coverage all you need to do is buy an VPN (cost around $5 to $10 a month) and get a UK IP address and you are all good to access both BBC and ITV online platforms for absolutely free from anywhere in the world.

Top VPN Provider:

There are several high quality VPN providers and below is the one we recommend.

ExpressVPN will not only get you IP/severs in any of the top country like South Africa, UK, US, Australia, Canada, Germany etc but also keep you anonymous and won’t keep any logs unlike some other other VPN providers.

ExpressVPN is the Leading provider of VPN services worldwide, Express VPN has been around since 2009. Their setup is easy and it won’t effect your internet speed whatsoever. They use smartplay tech which is very useful for online streaming and costs around $12.95 a month.

How it Works:

Signup for an VPN account at ExpressVPN.

Connect to a VPN server in any of the countries showing world cup live for free. For example, connect to a UK server.
Once connected to UK vpn server, just visit where you can watch BBC and ITV official live streams for free (no registration or payment required).
Or simply open BBC iplayer or ITV player through official website/app in your PC or mobile and you will have uninterrupted official streams.
Similar services are available with Fox (US), ARD & ZDF (Germany), SBS (Australia) and Mediaset (Spain). So lets say you want German coverage but you are located in some other part of the world. All you need to do is buy an VPN and get an German IP adress and after that access ARD or ZDF just like a person would do from inside Germany.

Here are some other ways and devices you can use to access free live streaming of FIFA World Cup 2018 around the world.

Live Streaming trough KODI via VPN:

If you have streamed any sports before you might be familiar with the device called “KODI”. Its a free, open source software which can be installed on any of the TV streaming boxed such as “Amazon Fire TV 3” and “Mi Box”. You can even install KODI on Windows, Mac or mobile devices.

How It Works: If you know or already have a Kodi setup, all you need is a VPN account with one of the reputed VPN service provider costs $5 to $10 a month, get a UK or US IP and access official live streaming through BBC iplayer, ITV player or FoxSports GO.

Live Streaming through Xbox/PS4 via VPN:

Both Xbox one and PS4 comes with online streaming capabilities so if you are located in the UK or US all you need is to access BBC iplayer, ITV player or FoxSports GO through Xbox One and PS4 to get the live action. However, if you are abroad and want UK/US english coverage you can get an VPN account setup (its a bit tricky to setup on PS4 and Xbox) but once done you can surf internet anonymously plus you get an option of UK/US server ip adress which allow you free unlimited access to BBC iplayer, ITV player and FoxSports Go coverage.

Free Online Streaming Sites:

The second option is super free but not reliable. We all know there will be many websites broadcasting illegal streams of FIFA World Cup and they are available through many popular sports streaming sites. However, they are not worth it even if they are free. They come at a cost of intrusive and sometime abusive pop/banner ads which can not only harm your computer but also steal your personal information. Beside free streaming sites rarely work good enough to watch a full match. You will have to switch, swap, find stream after stream just to go through one match. So why take the headech which you can just spend $5 buy a VPN and get an IP address of a country where official broadcaster is showing live coverage through their website or mobile app.

TV Channels Broadcasting FIFA World Cup Live worldwide: FIFA has extensive TV coverage plans for both 2018 and 2022 world cups. 160 tv networks around the world has bought world cup rights and FIFA ensured most of these are terrestrial (free-to-air) channels like for example in the UK, ITV and BBC will share the world cup coverage.
