When does the United States play?
Eight sets of four players make up the World Cup field. With England, Wales, and Iran, the United States is in Group B. There are many intriguing things about that. Of course, both Wales and England are part of the United Kingdom. Furthermore, Iran doesn’t exactly have the best relations with the US (or the UK, for that matter), at least not in terms of politics.
The USA group play schedule is shown below. The three first-round games are all on Fox, so they’ll be accessible on broadcast channels as well as streaming services. All times are Eastern.
- Monday, November 21: United States vs. Wales, 2 p.m.
- Friday, November 25: England vs. United States, 2 p.m.
- Tuesday, November 29: Iran vs. United States, 2 p.m.
According to David Neal, executive producer of FIFA World Cup on Fox and vice president of production for Fox Sports, “It’s fitting that this tournament will take place during the holiday season because the draw was a gift to soccer fans everywhere, highlighted by the [United States men’s national soccer team’s] return and an epic rematch with England, alongside so many storied group stage matchups.” With early matches between two international powerhouses and the chance to broadcast what may be Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo’s final FIFA World Cup, Fox Sports is honoured and thrilled to bring our world-class production to not only showcase the matches but also deliver nearly 100 hours of studio shows on linear alone around them.
How to watch FIFA World Cup 2022 in 4K
And thanks to your screen, this World Cup might be the most visually appealing in memory. There are several locations where you can watch the World Cup 2022 in 4K resolution.
According to Fox, every World Cup game will be broadcast in 3K. Additionally, each game will be available to watch in 4K on the Fox Sports app, YouTube TV, or FuboTV.
You need to be a subscriber to a cable, satellite, or streaming service in order to use the Fox Sports app to watch games in 4K.
4K programming is included for free on FuboTV. For that luxury, there is no additional cost.
YouTube TV, on the other hand, requires you to also subscribe to its 4K Plus add-on if you want any 4K content, live or otherwise. The first month, which includes the whole World Cup, is provided without charge. The price of the 4K Plus option then doubles to $20 per month after the first year, for a total of $10 per month. You can also watch a variety of on-demand 4K programming in addition to select live sports.
Whichever manner you choose, you should definitely watch the World Cup in 4K. It’s a huge improvement.
