World-Cup-Android-CBC

The 2014 FIFA World Cup is officially kicking off today and, while Google might have you covered for updates through search or Google Now, you’ll need one of a few other Android apps if you plan on streaming live audio or video of all the upcoming games. Head below for our full list of options for video and audio including options for both those in the US and abroad. Most on the list below have streams on TV and online, but you’ll need to download some apps if you want to tune in on your smartphone or tablet:

US: For video you’ll need to download the WatchESPN apps, which will require you to sign into a supported cable provider to access all 64 games being streamed live on the network. That includes streams in English, Portuguese and Korean, but for a Spanish broadcast Univision has streams also available through its app for Android. Support cable providers for Univision include AT&T, Bright House, DirecTV, Optimum, Cox, Dish, Time Warner Cable and Verizon.

If audio will suffice, TuneIn Radio is aggregating all 64 games from ESPN Radio in its Android app.

UK: The BBC and ITV will be broadcasting the games in the UK, which will also be available in their Android apps including the iPlayer BBC app and the ITV Player app forAndroid devices.

Australia: SBS On Demand will have the games to watch in its Android apps for Australia, but it doesn’t appear to be offering live streams.

Canada: CBC has all 64 games live through its Android app and doesn’t require users to sign into a cable provider.

A full list of who has broadcasting rights in which countries this year is here. If there are streams in your country, they will likely be through the broadcaster’s app. FIFA has a full match schedule on its website here.
