If you want to stream this year’s FIFA Women’s World Cup, there are a number of options available, including Fubo, Hulu Live TV, and YouTube TV. If you don’t want to sign up to a live TV plan, Peacock or Tubi might be able to help.
The FIFA Women’s World Cup takes place across Australia and New Zealand. In total, 64 games will be played between Thursday, July 20 and Sun, August 20, 2023. The first game kicks off at 3 a.m. ET on July 20 and see’s Group A’s New Zealand take on Norway.
Just like the Men’s World Cup in 2022, Fox has the rights to the Women’s World Cup. As a result, the majority of games will be available to watch on either Fox or Fox Sports 1. In some cases, some games might also require access to Fox Sports 2.
For those that already have access to their over-the-air Fox station, they can likely watch a good portion of the Women’s World Cup for free. For everyone else, a live TV plan that includes Fox and FS1 will be required.
You can watch the Women’s World Cup with a subscription to any of the following live TV services:
- DirecTV Stream from $75/mo. (select locations)
- Fubo from $75/mo.
- Hulu Live TV $70/mo
- Sling TV from $40/mo. (select locations)
- YouTube TV $73/mo.
While DirecTV Stream does offer Fox as part of its channel lineup, DirecTV is currently locked in a dispute with Nexstar. Due to this, any DirecTV Stream subscribers that are located in an area served by a Nexstar-owned Fox station are unlikely to be able to access the channel.

For some homes, Sling TV might not be an option either. While Sling does offer Fox and FS1 as part of its Sling Blue plan, it only offers access to Fox in a few locations. That said, if you do live in an area where Sling offers Fox, Sling TV will be the cheapest paid live TV option overall.

Watch the Women’s World Cup without a live TV plan
While Fox holds the rights to the Women’s World Cup, that’s the English-language rights. In contrast, Telemundo currently holds the Spanish-language rights to the tournament, and just like the Men’s tournament in 2022, that’s good news for Peacock subscribers.
Peacock has confirmed that all 64 games will be available to stream in Spanish at no additional charge. For those that can’t tune in as the games are being shown live, Peacock will also have all 64 available to stream on demand, along with the rest of its catalog.
For those new to Peacock, plans start at just $5.99 per month making it an affordable way to watch all of this year’s World Cup, and without having to sign up for a paid live TV plan.

Tubi is also likely to be an option to watch the Women’s World Cup without a live TV package, so long as you don’t need to watch live.
Ahead of the 2022 Men’s World Cup, Tubi launched a new World Cup channel and made full-game replays available to watch soon after they had been played. It is expected the same situation will be available with the Women’s World Cup in 2023, providing fans with the option to watch every game for free, and shortly after each game has ended.
How to watch the Women’s World Cup in 4K
Providing you are subscribed to a live TV plan that includes Fox then there is a good chance that you can watch some or all of the games in 4K.
For example, DirecTV Stream has now started offering 4K content, including live sports, on channel 104. Likewise, if signed up to YouTube TV’s 4K Plus add-on, then you should also be able to watch some live games in 4K.
While Fubo also offers programming in 4K, its 4K support is only available to US subscribers signed up to either the Elite, Premier, or Ultimate plan.
Regardless of live TV provider, and again similar to the Men’s World Cup, Fox will be offering subscribers the option to watch games in 4K through FOXSports.com, and the FOX Sports app. If signed up to a plan that includes Fox, subscribers can use their live TV account details to log in to the Fox website or app and unlock access to the 4K live feeds.
This is all made possible through the use of TV Everywhere support and Fubo, Hulu Live TV, and YouTube TV all currently offer TV Everywhere support for Fox, so this is an option for subscribers to any of these live TV services.
