Kick-off and channel
England vs Senegal kick-off is at 7pm GMT on Sunday 4 December in the UK. The game is free to watch on ITV1 and the ITV Hub.
In the US, kick-off time is 2pm ET / 11am PT. The match will be shown on FOX/FS1 in the US. See below for international broadcast options.
If you’re out of the country for the World Cup 2022, then you won’t be able to watch on your domestic streaming service as usual. The broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!) and blocks you from watching it. You can use a VPN to get around that, though, without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.
A Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs, creates a private connection between your device and t’internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and will let you watch. And all the info going between is entirely encrypted, anonymous and safe – and that’s a result.
There are plenty of good-value options out there. For the World Cup 2022, FourFourTwo currently recommends:
