The 2018 FIFA World Cup has started and with it fans around the globe are starting to show their support for their favorite teams, and regardless of who you represent the World Cup is global and will be good fun to watch if you simply love the sport of football, or soccer for those in the U.S. The good news is that if you can't watch the World Cup matches at home there are plenty of other ways to see the broadcasts. Various networks will be allowing streams to play in virtual reality, such as BBC Sports with the BBC Sports VR app for users in the UK, and for U.S. users Fox Sports will be partnering with Oculus Venues on the Gear VR and Oculus Go headsets to stream four matches, the first of which plays on June 17.
If you don't have the necessary VR equipment to stream the matches that will be available to consumers in virtual reality, chances are there will be plenty of local pubs and sports bars, as well as restaurants that will have the matches available on TVs throughout the establishments.
No matter how you watch the World Cup, if you do plan to watch at home you can use a VPN should you prefer to, and this handy guide will lay out the steps for you in a fairly simple manner that are easy to follow. One thing to keep in mind is that if you're going to watch any matches at all, it's important to remember that these are physically being played in Russia at various stadiums, so the matches will actually be airing in the U.S. pretty early in the morning, and you may have to wake up really early to ensure you don't miss the ones you want to watch.
