Many persons have paid their TV subscriptions, but there are some of us who might not be able to see all the events from home, maybe because of work, power problems, etc.

Techcrub got you covered as we have prepared a list of possible apps and tricks to help you stream the FIFA world cup live from Russia.

Some of the methods are not so legal. You will require VPNs or Fake Location App for you to be able to use them. Before we proceed, here is how to set up a Fake Location app or a VPN if you need one.

To use a fake location app, you will;

  • Navigate to Settings > About phone > Tap on build number continuously till it pops up a message that you are now a developer.
  • Go back to Settings > Developer Options > Allow Mock Locations (this will enable you to change your phone’s location)
  • Now open the Fake Location app and Tap England or any country of your choice from the app, your location will change to that country and should enable you to bypass geolocation lock.

To Use a VPN, you need to sign up for one, connect to a server in the countries showing world cup for free.

You can now proceed to open the application you choose or the website you want. Some browsers will allow you to install VPN addons too to use.

BBC and ITV platforms

BBC and ITV have live coverage rights in the UK, so they will be showing the match using their “ITV player” and “BBC iPlayer” platforms. Those in the UK can stream the games free, but those outside the UK will need to use fake location app to change your location to the UK or use a VPN with a UK IP to stream the matches.

These platforms are available on tvplayer.com. You can also download the official ITV player or BBC iPlayer on your Android and PC or proceed to their official websites to stream the matches.

Those in the US can stream the matches using Fox sports, Australia giants SBS will also provide live coverage.


Airtel TV and Jio Tv

For those in India, telecom giants Airtel will provide live coverage for the matches. The Airtel TV app which offers access to over ten thousand movies and shows provides an excellent way to stream all matches free as Airtel has decided to keep its subscription-free till December.

Reliance Jio is also offering live streaming services via its Jio TV app.  Those outside the Asian country can also choose to download the apps and use a location changer or a VPN


Mobdro is one of my all-time favorites on the Android platform, and I have been using it for years. Mobdro has tons of sports channels that you can select from and rarely lags, giving you are a pleasant experience.

Using mobdro, you don’t need any configurations, you download the app and install it, grant permissions, and you now have access over 100 sports channels (Bien Channels, Fox Sports, BT Sports Channels, Sky Sports Channels) at your disposal in the sports category.

Also, one time channels showing live football matches will be added in the “Others” categories. If there is geo-restriction, a location changer and a VPN can easily bypass them. Download Here

TvTap (formerly UKTVNow)

TvTap which was formerly known as UKTV now provides access to all the channels broadcasting different programs and sports in the UK.

Since its name change, it now provides access to channels from other countries like Canada, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, etc.

TvTap has countless access to different channels not available on Mobdro like the ITV channels. They also have a live match notification that alerts you whenever a match starts.

FIFA is committed to making sure billions of football lovers all over the world get access to live matches from the world cup. FIFA is tipped to use the popular video platform “YouTube” to offer free live streaming of the world cup matches.


Since the matches are evenly spaced, there shouldn’t be any clash youtube channels will provide live links so it will do you good to monitor the  FIFA official youtube page should be.


Kodi is an application that allows free streaming of different kind of movies and sports channels but requires manual setup.

Kodi on its own does not offer video streaming services, but with the use of add-ons, you can have access to countless channels from different countries with different stations. Kodi is available on Android and PC.

The setup procedure for Kodi is same on PC and Android. To set up Kodi to stream live matches, we will need an add-on Called “Sports Devil.”

Also, most sports betting sites will be providing free live streaming of the matches on their platform, though I wouldn’t recommend it as it can lead to being addicted to gambling.
