The 2018 FIFA World Cup has begun. Although the U.S. men's soccer team didn't qualify this year, there are still lots of great games to watch, and there are lots of ways to watch them — and you can watch most of them for free.

FOX Sports has the rights for the English broadcasts of the games. So, if you have satellite or cable TV, just find your local FOX station — which is free with a digital antenna — or the pay TV channel FS1. The Spanish broadcasts of the World Cup are available on either Telemundo or NBC Universo. You can watch for free on Telemundo without a pay TV subscription until June 25th.
If you don't have pay TV or a package with FS1, you can still watch the games being broadcast on FOX for free with the FOX Sports Go app. The app is free to download, but you'll need to log in with your pay TV provider account (or a friend's ... shhh).
