How to watch the World Cup in the USA

The 2022 World Cup will be televised in the United States in English by Fox Sports and in Spanish by Telemundo.

Fox will spread the matches across its family of channels, including FS1 and FS2. While most of the channel designations are set, Fox does have the ability to switch its assignments around, particularly for the final round of group-stage fixtures, depending on which matches carry the most importance for knockout-stage places.

Meanwhile, Telemundo will be the home of all Spanish-language World Cup broadcasts in the United States. The only exception will come in the final round of group-stage matches, when games are played simultaneously. For those matches, one will be pushed to UNIVERSO. All Spanish-language World Cup match broadcasts can be streamed on Peacock Premium as well.

What time do 2022 World Cup games start in the USA?

For the 2022 FIFA World Cup, the group-stage matches will start in the United States at 5:00 a.m., 8:00 a.m., 11:00 a.m. or 2:00 p.m. Eastern Time. For the final round of group-stage fixtures there is also a 10:00 a.m. Eastern time slot. As Qatar is eight hours ahead of the USA east coast, and 11 hours ahead of the west coast, these were the time slots that worked the best.

The first two games of the tournament featured one and three games respectively, and then every matchday will feature four games all the way through the conclusion of the group stage on December 2. In the knockouts, only slot 4 and 5 are in play.
