England and Belgium have both already qualified to move on to the round of 16 in the FIFA 2018 World Cup. So does the England vs. Belgium game today, which long ago seemed like it would be a hugely important match, really matter?

Some observers think that England and Belgium may rest their top players rather than put them at risk of injury. Others say that it might even be better to lose today and wind up in second place in Group G — because of the assumption that the second place finisher would have an easier path to advance in the World Cup.

In any event, there will be some interesting strategies at play in England vs. Belgium today, and fans will surely want to tune in. How can you watch England vs. Belgium and other World Cup games today for free on TV? And how do you live stream the 2018 World Cup? Here are all the details.

What Channel Is the 2018 World Cup England vs. Belgium Game On?

The England vs. Belgium game is scheduled to start at 2 p.m. ET, and it is being broadcast in English on Fox, and in Spanish on Telemundo.

Other World Cup games are being broadcast in English on the Fox-owned station FS1, and in Spanish by NBC’s Universo. These are both pay TV channels, and you’ll need a satellite or cable TV package to watch them with a TV.

If you have cable or another TV package, simply find the appropriate channel and tune in. Even if you don’t have cable, it’s very easy to watch the World Cup games being broadcast on Fox and Telemundo for free. Simply hook up your TV to a digital antenna, which costs around $30 — in most of the country you can then watch over-the-air networks like Fox, NBC, and Telemundo totally for free. It’s similar to how old-fashioned “rabbit ears” antennas used to work, only the picture on your TV will now be in far superior high-definition.

It’s also possible to watch all of the World Cup 2018 if you don’t have cable, and even if you don’t have a TV. In our previous World Cup viewing guide, we laid out all the details for how to live stream the 2018 World Cup for free. The basics are below, as well as a schedule for the World Cup games today, and in the days ahead.
