    SuperSport will be renaming all their channels to specific World Cup coverage areas. Looking forward to what they do during the tournament. Looks very extensive & cool:

    Anyone familiar with Tubi or Peacock options if one will be available to avoid spoilers before starting a replay? I know Peacock used to be horrible in this aspect for the olympics. I may have to watch replays in some instances and wonder what the better option would be.

    Fox didn’t have a post game show after the first match. Seriously?

    I'm watching Telemundo during the live game action, switching to Fox for halftime (and in-between matches beginning Monday).
    Currently watching TUDN post game with Austria-Italy friendly upcoming.

    Trying to tape all the games on Youtube tv. It was ok taping everything except the US games (!!), and said something there like "Game will tape after the game is completed." Is that a Youtube tv thing or a Fox thing or what?

    That little bit at halftime where Alexi said something to Clint about you can't be kind of pregnant was like 10 giant steps backward for U.S. soccer telecasting.

    BBC spent their whole pre-game show talking about how bad Qatar is. Human Rights, gay rights, etc. I get it. I'm not a fan of the World Cup being held in Qatar and have been saying this for 12 years. What they said needed to be said. But it was depressing as hell. It was as if a network was saying "don't be a part of this tournament. Don't watch what we paid MILLIONS OF DOLLARS to bring to your living rooms!" I could smell the hypocrisy.

    I understand Fox's pre-game was all love for Qatar (afterall, the show was sponsored by Qatar Airways!). BOTH of these approaches are wrong - and nauseating! Surely there is a middle ground where they can serve the fans who just want to enjoy football AND bring to the forefront issues that need to be addressed. But I guess when you live in a world where ONLY extreme views are offered, you get exactly that. Only Black & White are presented while the 80% of us that live in a gray world can just go f*ck ourselves...

    This 15-minute injury delay for the Iran keeper is a good reminder to those DVRing these matches due to their time slots to add at least an extra 15 minutes to your recordings.

    FS1 had NCAA. Broadcast Fox had NFL.

    FS2? Fox Business? FX? FXX? I'm surprised that one of those channels couldn't have had 30 mins carved out.

    A lot of people learned that lesson when Petr Čech went down.

    The others? Hopefully they know now. (And pity the providers that don't allow recording long.)

    On the other hand, ending early means you miss FOX's post-game remarks.

    So there are pros and cons.

    BTW, nice job by FOX joining the second half of Denmark x Tunisia in progress.

    I’m not a fan of Fox, but they deserve some credit for getting Tubi right.

    They get the replay up within 30 minutes of the end of the game, No spoilers, minimal ads, the stream picks up where you left off if you need to resume a match in progress. And it is totally free.

    As a cord cutter I haven’t had to use my ota dvr at all.

    I hate to say it, but ‘good work Fox!’

    The NCAA game was delayed so they could have done something. Really, we've waited over 4 years for the WC the first game coverage they f-up.

    Also, not for the first time the 8am EST game(Germany-Japan) ends on FS1 and no mention to switch to Fox channel for the postgame and next game? WTF Fox?

    Can we really be surprised? It's FOX. At least they are predictably bad at covering soccer so you can keep your expectations low and make alternate plans.
