How to Watch FIFA Women’s World Cup 2019
If you’re planning to watch the 2019 Women’s FIFA World Cup on television in the U.S., you’ll only be able to find it in several spots — Fox and its FS1 cable channel. You’ll need to check your local listings to see which matches will air on which channels, of course, but you can bet that U.S. games will air on over-the-air TV on Fox. Telemundo has the Spanish-language broadcast rights and will air some games on its over-the-air channel and others on the Universo cable channel.
If you’re in the UK or plan to watch matches from the UK, BBC has the exclusive broadcast rights. The matches will air on BBC One, BBC Two, and BBC Four.
