Soccer fans, rejoice! We are just a few hours away from the start of the 2018 FIFA World Cup, and Hulu is here for you! Beginning tomorrow, subscribers to Hulu’s live TV offering will be able to watch live and on-demand coverage of every match across FOX, FS1 and Telemundo* as well as full event replays, recaps, highlights and more. Whether you’re a casual fan looking for a game to watch or a hardcore fan who’s already set their alarm for 5:00am to follow all the passion and pageantry of the event, you’ll never have to miss a moment as the world’s greatest players lay it all on the line for their countries and compete for the sport’s ultimate prize.
We believe the biggest events are best experienced on Hulu. We do this by providing fans with personalized, quick and easy access to their must-see sports programming. So we’re doing just that for the World Cup. World Cup programming will be featured front and center on Home to get you to what you want to watch quickly. We’ve also created a dedicated World Cup hub featuring live and upcoming games across the entire tournament. Plus, you can add your favorite World Cup teams to My Stuff from any game page. When you add teams to My Stuff, we’ll surface those games at the top of your lineup and record the matches for you with your Cloud DVR when they air live. That way you can watch each game when and where you’d like, no matter if it’s live or on-demand— on your phone, living room device or your computer.
If you’d like to watch the tournament in Spanish, we’ve got you covered: just head over to the Telemundo Network page and go to the dedicated Copa Mundial collection for coverage of the tournament.
During the semifinals and finals, we’re excited to bring you an expansive simulcast experience where you’ll be able to watch the matches live with five additional bonus views including a tactical cam, cable cam above the pitch and team-specific broadcasts. We’ll compile all of these views in a World Cup Semifinal and Final collection on Home for easy-to-find (and flip) access.
Of course, the World Cup is so much more than just the live matches themselves. So if the games are not enough, you can watch Phenoms, a documentary series that chronicles the journey of over 60 players across 20 countries in their pursuit of playing on the world stage at the 2018 FIFA World Cup, which is available to all Hulu subscribers— live and on-demand.
We hope you enjoy the World Cup on Hulu!
