Tubi has now launched its new FIFA World Cup channel in preparation of the upcoming soccer event in Qatar. Although the 2022 World Cup is not due to begin until later in the year, the launch of the new channel allows users to get in the mood by watching matches from past tournaments. The new FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 channel is free to access and watch.
Tubi might be better thought of as an on-demand streaming service, but it has recently been expanding its live TV offerings and now provides access to a variety of live TV channels for free. The channel lineup is something that will continue to improve over time as more are added, as is the case today with the new channel.
Tubi’s FIFA World Cup channel can now be found listed in the guide when accessing the Live TV section of Tubi via one of the apps or the Tubi website. The channel is already scheduled to show various matches from past tournaments including the 2018 World Cup final between France and Croatia. Tubi also explains that there will be additional non-match content available, including series and films that not only focus on past tournaments but also the upcoming 2022 event as well.
Once the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 event actually kicks off, Tubi has confirmed that every match will be available to watch for free on-demand and shown as replays via the new channel. It is essentially designed to be a hub for catching up on all of the World Cup action.
As is the case with Tubi in general, the live TV experience is supported by the use of ads. As Tubi does not offer a paid subscription, there is no option to upgrade to remove the ads. Still, with plenty of content to watch now, in the leadup, and during this year’s World Cup, Tubi is a good free option to have available.
