Watch the World Cup Live on a Mobile Device
Once you locate the app, download it. When downloaded, open the app and press “WATCH LIVE” to start watching. This should work in most countries, but there may be occasional blackouts in some areas which will result in no stream running.
If you live in the USA, then you can use the WatchESPN app available in the App Store and Google Play Store to catch all the action live. You’ll need to have a ESPN subscription to use the app though.
For all of you who reside in the UK, the BBC iPlayer and ITV Player mobile apps essentially offer the same coverage you get on the Web version. Download BBC iPlayer for iOS and Android, and ITV Player for iOS and Android to catch the action live.
Watch the World Cup on the Web:
Viewers in the United States can catch up with all the action by navigating to espn.go.com/watchespn/.This site is specifically designed with browser viewing in mind, but the catch is that you’ll need an ESPN subscription to watch the World Cup on their site.
BBC and ITV has shared jurisdiction over the televising of the entire World Cup. All matches will either be televised by BBC or ITV, and naturally, their respective websites will be streaming the content live either at itv.com/player or bbc.co.uk/iplayer/live/bbcone.
