Kick off and chain
England’s kick-off against USA is at 19:00 GMT on Friday, November 25 United Kingdom. The game is free to watch on ITV 1 and ITV Hub.
In the United States, kick-off time is 2 p.m. ET / 11 a.m. PT. The match will be broadcast on FOX/FS1 in the United States. See below for international streaming options.
If you’re out of the country for the 2022 World Cup, you won’t be able to watch on your domestic streaming service as usual. The broadcaster knows where you are thanks to your IP address (boo!) and prevents you from watching it. You can, however, use a VPN to circumvent this, without resorting to the illegal streams you found on Reddit.
A virtual private network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s terms and conditions, creates a private connection between your device and the internet, which means the service cannot determine where you are and will allow you to watch. And all information exchanged is fully encrypted, anonymous and safe – and that’s a result.
There are plenty of good value for money options. For the 2022 World Cup, FourFourTwo currently recommends:
