How to stream the World Cup from your phone


Written by: Circles.Life


FIFA World Cup 2022 is coming!

The worldwide sports event will be held in November, the winter month, instead of the usual summertime. The reason is that the World Cup 2022 will take place in Qatar, a peninsular Arab country. Due to the soaring summer temperatures, FIFA has decided that summer in Qatar will be too much for the viewers and athletes. Hence, November is chosen as this year’s celebration date.

The exact date of World Cup 2022 will be from Monday, November 21st to the mid of December 2022. The long-waited matches will be aired online so fans from all over the world can watch and cheer for their favorite teams. The televised live version will be aired by FOX Sports (in English) and Telemundo (in Spanish). Some streaming devices have also announced that they will show live matches.

There will be approximately 4 matches per day and you can prepare yourself to make sure that you can watch everything on time. Thankfully, the time difference between Qatar and Singapore is more favorable (flashback to World Cup 2014 in Brazil, anyone?)so you can keep yourself glued to the matches during your work, study, in transit, and even sleep time*! (*not recommended)


The first step on how to stream the World Cup from your phone is to make sure that your internet connection and device are ready. Switch to Circles.Life for a zero-contract data plan that rewards as you go!

The first thing that you need to do is to make sure that your mobile phone is charged and ready to show live video footage for hours. You might want to check something with higher RAM for a better experience. Some of the best-reviewed mobile phones for live streaming are Apple iPhone 13 Max and Samsung Galaxy S22.

The second thing that you need to do is to get the best telco service in Singapore. Sure, you can wire your mobile phone to your workplace’s wifi or any cafe that you might find. But let’s not risk losing some of the critical moments and make sure that everything is under control. Besides, you are probably on the move, so it’s best to keep everything flexible.


You might think that an internet connection, the latest device, and free (or paid) live streaming channel are enough for you to watch World Cup 2022 online without fuss. We wish it was that easy! Depending on where you’re watching it from, it’s possible that you won’t be able to access the listed channels due to area restrictions. The sad news is most of the broadcasters are country-specific. Viewers from some places, mostly Asian and African countries, are blocked to protect their copyright.

The one way for you to watch World Cup 2022 from anywhere is VPN. A Virtual Private Network is a part of a cybersecurity feature that enables you to mask your actual country’s IP address with another country’s IP address. Let’s say that you want to access a live streaming channel that strictly broadcasts only to UK areas like BBC iPlayer or ITV. All you need to do is to set your VPN as the UK’s IP address so you can watch the World Cup 2022.

It’s really hard to find mobile live streaming of World Cup 2022 without a VPN, so we strongly suggest you get yourself used to the tools. It’s not free, so you need to subscribe to your account first before using the service. This is clearly the most significant step on how to stream the World Cup from your mobile.

Several VPN platforms that you might want to check: NordVPN, ExpressVPN, and Cyberghost.


The third step is checking your favorite team’s match schedule, but after that, you need to know which live streaming channel you want to tap in. Since you are already safe with your VPN, you can choose any channel that offers free service or a free trial package.

FOX Sports

As mentioned before, FOX Sports will be the official broadcast channel of the FIFA World Cup 2022. You can get FOX Sports through several subscriptions such as DIRECTV STREAM, fuboTV, Hulu + Live TV, and Vidgo. But these platforms might not be available for mobile phone users. So if you wish to watch FOX Sports through your phone, the first thing that you need to do is to download the FOX Sports app.


fuboTV is an American streaming television service that serves viewers in the area of US, Canada, and Spain. Most of the content that fuboTV broadcasts are live sports. fuboTV isn’t free, but you can get the 7-day free trial. fuboTV is available on iOS and Android. You can watch the World Cup 2022 by searching the Fox Sports channel on fuboTV.


Although created by Google, YouTubeTV is not YouTube. You will need to install two apps to get both. The live streaming service is currently only available in the US. It broadcasts more than 85 channels, including Fox and Fox Sports. This is where your VPN will come in handy.

So those are the three steps on how to stream the World Cup from your mobile phone. Happy watching!
