How to Watch the World Cup in Russia on the Internet for Free in HD

Let me guess. You will be at work during the World Cup in Russia and are searching for how to watch the World Cup in Russia on the internet for free in HD? Afterall you do have internet at work, but you don’t have a TV. Or perhaps it’s a different scenario. Perhaps you are on a train. Either way, you want to watch the World Cup in Russia. And there is a way to do it for free and in HD while being legal.

Now, if you are not at work and simply traveling in a different country, you can simply to go a pub. World Cup will be on in many pubs. Without a doubt. Football is loved and watched everywhere.

But if you can’t go to a pub, there is a clever way that most people don’t see.

Find a broadcaster on the internet first

Wikipedia has the list of all of the channels that have rights to show the World Cup in Russia. There you will see which channels in your country that will play the World Cup when it’s on. So that’s great but, that’s not sufficient enough by itself. That channel or rather that broadcaster must have an online player that allows you to watch on the internet. And of course, since you are searching for how to watch the World Cup in Russia on the internet for free, it also needs to be free.

Now, you could simply find an illegal stream, but illegal streams will be unreliable due to how many people will be trying to access them.

But finding a broadcaster with an online player in your country might not be an easy task. Most countries will only have one or two broadcasters or channels that will show the World Cup. And only on the territories of that country. If your country does not have a broadcaster that will show the World Cup and that has an online player that’s free, then you will more than likely not be able to watch the World Cup in high quality.

Unless you use a VPN to be in a different country virtually which would allow you to use an online player provided by one of the broadcasters that will show the World Cup but only in that specific country.

A VPN is a virtual private network that allows you to be in a different country without being there which provides you with tremendous opportunities when it comes to watching content.

And PrivateVPN offers servers in most of the locations that broadcast the World Cup meaning that you will find a player that allows you to watch the World Cup and you will be able to connect to a server from the country that player is in.

But Will a VPN Slow down My Connection to a Point Where I Can’t Watch in HD?

Here’s the thing. VPN Will not make your internet connection any faster. If it’s slow, then it’s not going to be any faster than what you currently have. An instance where a VPN might speed up your internet is when your internet provider is involved in some website throttling meaning that some websites are slowed down on purpose.

But yes, a VPN can slow down your connection. But it all depends on the kind of service you are using. At PrivateVPN we buy internet capacity directly from IP transit providers meanwhile a lot buy it from a web hosting company resulting in you dealing with a much slower connection.

Recommended Players to Use for the World Cup

RTE Player which requires a connection to an Irish server. And no, Ireland is not in the UK.

BBC iPlayer and the ITV Hub are also a great choice and require a connection to Manchester or London 3 servers. ITV Hub also works with London 1 server.
