Everyone loves a holiday; a chance to unwind, soak up some sun and switch off from the world. It can be less enjoyable, however, if you don’t want to switch all the way off. With the World Cup right around the corner you may want to be able to keep up with the tournament, watch every game, the highlights, or just keep up with the latest news – even if you are abroad. Here are some of our favourite ways to watch the World Cup while you are out of the house, travelling, or sitting by the pool somewhere.
Finally, technology has caught up, and the apps and sites that formerly worked well on computers and tablets, but not on mobile phones can now be used more easily on your phone. One of the big problems can be finding the site with the best price, or indeed one that is free to use.
The Sky Sports Mobile TV App is fantastic and allows you to watch all the channels, keep up with the news and enjoy it from anywhere – as long as you pay for it. There are cheaper packages available, though of course, if you are already a Sky Sports customer you can get the app and watch on the go for no extra cost. Other great options include ESPN, Live Soccer TV, Live Football on TV, and Live NetTV (which are all free to use).
If you are enjoying your holiday and really just want to stay updated about the scores, news and any information that may impact your fantasy football team or World Cup betting 2022 odds, there are plenty of sites and apps that can give you all of the facts and figures you might need.
You often can’t beat sites like BBC Sport, ESPN Sport and many others associated with the major news channels, but there is also an official Fifa World Cup 2022 App that will be specially tailored to give you all the news, updates and information about the tournament that you can handle. This is a must download for anyone setting off abroad this World Cup.
Of course the BBC and ITV have the rights to freely show each and every World Cup game in Qatar 2022, but if you are abroad you will find that their apps don’t work, or work in a reduced way that may interfere with your streaming. One way around this is with a Virtual Private Network (VPN). This works to keep what you are doing private, hiding your IP address and therefore country of origin from sites so that you can still use them abroad. It is the easiest way to access apps like BBC iPlayer, and you can often find free trials and relatively inexpensive VPNs for you to choose from.
Wherever you are and however you watch the World Cup 2022 in Qatar this year, make sure you don’t miss a moment with all of the different options out there for streaming on holiday – unless you decide to head off for a quick dip in the pool or a swim in the sea anyway.
