Making sure you have a reliable live stream of the 2022 World Cup is one of the most important things you can do this winter, especially as we enter the knockout stage.
Qatar’s highly anticipated World Cup is in full swing, with the group stage drawing to a close for the highly anticipated knockout rounds. Unfortunately, there are no longer four World Cup matches a day during the group stage, but there are still plenty of matches to enjoy between now and the final on December 18.
With World Cup kick-off times varying over a four-hour period (early matches are now 3pm and later matches 7pm GMT), games continue to come thick and fast – although not as frequent as those starting and ending at 10am at 21:00 GMT.
No matter where you are in the world, you want to make sure you’re in front of the best TV to watch football and that you don’t miss any of the action because you’re too late to get the right streaming subscription.
Don’t forget the 2022 World Cup is free on BBC iPlayer/ITV Hub in the UK. Brit abroad? Use a VPN to watch World Cup 2022 for free (opens in new tab) from anywhere.

As in the UK, coverage of the 2022 World Cup is completely free to watch. You can watch all 64 matches on the SBS TV channel and also stream online with SBS On Demand.
Paid provider Sky Sports is the rightful claimant to the 2022 World Cup in New Zealand. You can watch as part of your Sky subscription or pick up a Sky Now TV pass. There is also a 7-day free trial.
Use a VPN to watch World Cup 2022 from abroad
If you’re abroad for part or all of the World Cup, your domestic on-demand services annoyingly don’t work – the broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!). You’ll be blocked from watching it, which isn’t ideal if you’ve paid for a subscription and still want to see the action without resorting to illegal feeds found on Reddit.
But help is available. To get around that, all you need to do is purchase a Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it meets your broadcaster’s terms and conditions. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, meaning the service can’t find out where you are and won’t automatically block the service you paid for. All information that passes between them is fully encrypted – and that’s a result.
There are plenty of cost-effective options available, including:
