Kickoff and channel
The Argentina-Croatia kick-off is over 19:00 GMT On Tuesday December 13 in the United Kingdom. The game is free to watch on ITV1 and the ITV Hub.
In the US, kick-off time is 2pm ET / 11am PT. The match will be shown on FOX/FS1 in the US. See below for international broadcast options.
If you’re abroad for the 2022 World Cup, you won’t be able to watch on your domestic streaming service as usual. The broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!) and blocks you from watching it. However, you can use a VPN to get around that, without resorting to illegal feeds found on Reddit.
A Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it meets your broadcaster’s terms and conditions, creates a private connection between your device and the internet, meaning the service can’t determine where you are and let you watch. And all the information that passes between them is completely encrypted, anonymous and secure – and that’s a result.
There are plenty of good options out there. For the 2022 World Cup, FourFourTwo currently recommends:
