How to Watch FIFA U-20 World Cup 2019 Online: Live Stream Anywhere

By Gabriela Vatu / May 27, 2019

They may be young, but the players that participate in the FIFA U-20 World Cup are certainly fantastic in their own rights. If you're preparing for the ongoing FIFA U-20 World Cup and you want to watch it online, we're here to help you out.

Held every couple of years, the U-20 World Cup started on May 23 and will complete on June 15th, after the top 24 teams of the world have fought it over on the field. This year's event is taking place in Poland and it's the first time the country is hosting, although they're not in any way new to hosting international football events in any way.

Last tournament's winner is England, but they are not defending their title this year because they lost to Norway in the playoffs, so they didn't qualify. Instead, the countries whose teams are competing are Argentina, Colombia, Ecuador, France, Honduras, Italy, Japan, Korea Republic, Mali, Mexico, New Zealand, Nigeria, Norway, Panama, Poland, Portugal, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Senegal, South Africa, Tahiti, Ukraine, Uruguay, and USA. You can check the competition's full schedule on FIFA's website so you'll know when to support your favorites.

If you're looking to watch the matches over in the US, you're going to need to check out either Fox for the English broadcast or Telemundo for the Spanish broadcast. That's great news because these are fairly popular channels and they're easy to find among live TV platforms, so you can enjoy the games online.

How to Watch FIFA U-20 World Cup Online?

Live TV platforms nowadays are marvelous, but they do come with some limitations. Getting to watch TV online via all these platforms gives us all great freedom, but there are still licensing deals in place, so those have to be applied. Generally, this means that all platforms are geoblocked, so you can't access them if you travel outside the United States. This problem is, thankfully, easy to fix, if you subscribe to a VPN service which can help change your IP address, so the websites think you're somewhere else. Here's what you need to do.

Note: One thing we should mention here is that if you live in one of the cities where Fox isn't available even via a live TV platform, there's still something you can do. Pick a VPN, follow the above-mentioned steps, and then go ahead and pick a server that's located in a metropolitan area such as New York City or Los Angeles to name a few. Connect to it and you should then get the channels assigned for that area.

How to Watch FIFA U-20 World Cup Without Cable?

It's so convenient that we can watch TV online these days since we are already able to do pretty much anything else online. The best parts are that you can enjoy the service wherever you are when the game starts since all you need is a compatible device and an Internet connection. Plus, you can quit your subscription whenever you feel like it and you get to pay far less for it than you would on cable. Let's see what options you have moving forward.

On Sling TV, if you want any cloud DVR space, you need to pay $5 per month for it. When it comes to how many simultaneous streams this platform support, it all depends on which bundle you chose.

The other five, namely Entertainment ($93/mo), Choice ($110/mo), Xtra ($124/mo), Ultimate ($135/mo), and Optimo Mas ($86/mo), have been around for a longer time, but they used to have a different name and a price that's about half than what it is today.

Our list ends with PlayStation Vue, which is a great platform that comes with four bundles to pick from - Access ($44.99/mo), Core ($49.99/mo), Elite ($59.99/mo), and Ultra ($79.99/mo). If you want to customize your plan a bit, you can add channel packs and premium networks. PlayStation Vue offers Fox in all four bundles, but there's no Telemundo to enjoy.

On PlayStation Vue, you can record up to 500 programs to the cloud, but you need to watch them all within a month or the recordings get deleted. You can also watch content on up to five screens at the same time, which is the most we've seen, especially since it comes at no additional cost. We must also mention the split screen feature which is unique to this platform, which allows users to watch up to three different streams at the same time, on the same screen.

How to Watch U-20 World Cup with a TV Antenna?

One of the cool things about some TV channels is that you can also watch them over the air with the help of a TV antenna, and that's exactly the case for Fox. Cord cutters have been interested in TV antennas for a long time because you don't pay a lot for them, and you get to watch TV for free. Of course, you only get access to a dozen or two channels, depending on where you live, but it's free, so you don't get to complain.

We suggest that before making any purchase you can check on a site like NoCable for what channels broadcast over the air in your location, as well as how strong the signal is. This should help you decide whether or not the move is worth it, as well as what range you should look for in an antenna. We've already given you a suggestion - an antenna that is very well received by users - but you can do your own research.

We hope we've been helpful in getting you to watch the 2019 FIFA U-20 World Cup online, so please drop us a note to tell us which platform you chose to watch the event on. We'd love it if you could share the article online, and please follow TechNadu on Facebook and Twitter for more tech news, guides, reviews, and interviews.
