How to Watch FIFA Women’s World Cup 2019 Online: Live Stream from Anywhere

By Gabriela Vatu / July 1, 2019

The 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup is approaching fast and if you want to make sure you can watch the event online, you will need a little bit of help.

This is the 8th edition of FIFA's Women's World Cup and it will feature 24 teams from 6 confederations: Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Cameroon, Canada, Chile, China PR, England, France, Germany, Italy, Jamaica, Japan, Korea Republic, Netherlands, New Zealand, Nigeria, Norway, Scotland, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Thailand, and USA. Last year's winner is the United States, who managed their third win, and they're hoping they'll manage to score their fourth this year.

The competition will take place in France this year, with matches being spread out across 9 different venues - Montpellier, Nice, Valenciennes, Paris, Lyon, Reims, Le Havre, Grenoble, and Rennes. This will be the first time the video assistant referee system will be used during a Women's World Cup.

The first games will start off on June 7th, with France taking on the Korea Republic on the Parc des Princes stadium in Paris. The semi-finals are taking place on July 2nd between England and the United States, and on July 3rd between the Netherlands and Sweden. The losers of these games will meet up to compete for third place on July 6th, while the winners will face off in the final on July 7th. You can check out the schedule for each round on FIFA's official page.

The 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup will be televised by FOX, FS1, and FS2, the satellite sports networks from Fox. The commentaries will be covered by JP Dellacamera, Derek Rae, Jenn Hildreth, Glenn Davis, and Lisa Byington, while the studio hosts will be Rob Stone, Kate Abdo, and Jenny Taft. There's also going to be a long list of studio analysts. Either way, we know there's going to be a big year for women's football and we can't wait to see who wins. Let's see how you can watch this whole event online.

How to Watch FIFA Women's World Cup Online?

We are all living a good chunk of our lives online, whether it's for fun like watching YouTube and giggling at memes, relaxing with a movie, or sending out work emails. Either way, we are all accustomed to living online. So, watching TV online also makes sense, so we're going to see how we can do this for the Women's World Cup this year. One thing you need to keep in mind, however, is that live TV platforms in the US, as well as streaming platforms, can only be accessed from within the US. Basically, they're geoblocked, so you can't watch anything if you're abroad. Since these platforms know your location by reading your IP address, you can change your IP to trick the system. But, you can't do it on your own so you'll need to subscribe to a VPN service to make it easier. Here's what you need to do.

Note: Since this is Fox we're talking about, you should know that live TV platforms serve the channel for "select markets" which means you may very well live in an area that doesn't get FOX coverage. In that case, you need to get creative and to use the same VPN we just discussed to change your IP address to make it seem as if you live in a different city that would get FOX, such as Chicago, or Los Angeles. Once you log into your account, the platform should serve you channels available in that area.

How to Watch FIFA Women's World Cup 2019 Without Cable?

All these live TV platforms that have launched over the past few years make our lives so much easier because we get to enjoy watching TV on our smartphones, tablet, laptops, smart TVs, and more. They are cheaper than cable, they don't tie you down because there are no contracts involved, and you can enjoy so much more freedom. So, let's see what options you have to watch the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup!

Those looking for Fox will find it easily since it's present in all seven bundles, just like FS1.

How to Watch the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup With a TV Antenna?

One of the three channels that will cover the football event is FOX, which is a channel that still broadcasts over the air. This is great news because it means that at least some of the games that will take place during the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup, including the final, will be available for those who only rely on a TV antenna to watch. Antennas have been particularly well-liked by cord cutters for many years because they're cheap and you get to watch TV for free. Sadly, there are only a few handfuls of channels that still air like this, so it will be a considerable drop from hundreds of channels cable offers.

Before you make a decision, we suggest you try out a site like NoCable where you can find out whether or not FOX is available over the air in your region, along with the full network list. You'll also find out how strong their broadcast signal is in your region, so you can decide what range to look for in an antenna. We've already made a suggestion - a device that works great according to the many reviews it received - but you can, obviously, do your own research.

So, what do you think? Which platform will you be watching the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup on?
