2015 FIFA Women's World Cup TV Schedule

How Cord Cutters Can Watch the World Cup

 

June is finally here, which means it’s time for one of the most watched sporting events in the world: The Women’s World Cup. Dozens of teams from all across the world will compete in a month long bonanza of soccer and sportsmanship that will keep the entire world on the edge of their seat.

 

What makes this World Cup so interesting is all the controversy surrounding the tournament. Aside from the kerfuffle over the use of astro-turf instead of real grass; FIFA, the world governing body for soccer, is embroiled in a high-profile corruption case that threatens to upend the leadership of the organization.

 

Odds are the corruption scandal won’t have too much of an impact on the outcome of the World Cup, but it will provide an interesting backdrop to the month-long soccer tournament.

Fox Sports

 

FIFA won’t be the only organization under pressure during the World Cup. Broadcaster Fox is making a major move to cement its cable sports channels, Fox Sports 1 & 2, as a legitimate competitor to ESPN and it is using the World Cup as its test run. Fox is the sole US broadcaster of the Women’s World Cup and, if they botch the broadcast, their dreams of sports broadcasting dominance will be crushed.

 

For Fox, the stakes have never been higher.

 

Unfortunately, what that means for cord cutting soccer fans is that a lot of the Women’s World Cup will air on the cable-only channels Fox Sports 1 & 2.  Fox Sports 1 will air 29 of the 52 matches, Fox Sports 2 will air seven games, and Fox itself will air 16 matches.

If you have an over-the air antenna, like the Mohu Leaf, you will be able to pick up the 16 games that air on Fox; and for the other 36 matches, you’ll have to get a little creative. There’s no streaming service to save you this time, nor will hiding your location help.

Regardless of whether you want to watch the major matches or catch every exciting minute of it, watching the Women’s World Cup is well within the realm of possibility. While cord cutting may not always be the easiest option out there, it’s still a better option than having to pay thousands of dollars every year to the cable companies.
