The 2014 FIFA World Cup is well and truly happening in Brazil, and if you want to ensure you don’t miss a second of the 64 total matches being held over the next few weeks, then we’re going to show you how you can tune in via your browser, smartphone, tablet, set-top box or console.

There are many different ways to tune into the action, but precisely how you’re able to catch the action is dependent largely upon which platform you have and where you live. If you’re a hardcore soccer / football fan, you don’t want to miss this show-piece that only occurs once every four years.

FIFA World Cup 2014 live

iOS

United Kingdom:

The iPlayer and ITV Player apps should be your first port of call on iOS, which will essentially offer the same coverage you get on the Web version. Also, if you want to watch BBC One live, check out the TVCatchup app.

United States:

The WatchESPN app will keep you updated on all of the events as and when they occur, although, you will need to be subscribed.

Canada:

Users in Canada can get in on the action on iOS by downloading the official CBC app from the iTunes App Store.

Web

Germany:

German viewers can keep abreast of every goal, red card, penalty and exquisite piece of skill by pointing their browsers to the following URL: www.zdf.de

United Kingdom:

Those in the UK have a bunch of options at their disposal. Both the BBC and ITV have shared jurisdiction over the televising of the entire World Cup, and so naturally, their respective websites will be streaming the content live at itv.com/player or bbc.co.uk/iplayer/live/bbcone.

You can also check out the BBC Sport website at bbc.com/sport.

Canada:

The specially dedicated Brazil 2014 portion of the CBC website, which can be accessed via cbc.ca/soccer/brazil2014, will keep you in the loop when the goals fly in and history is made. At this point, we have no clue who’ll lift the most coveted trophy in football and arguably sport in general, but if you’re in Canada, you can keep up with the action courtesy of CBC.

United States:

U.S. viewers can enjoy the action live via espn.go.com/watchespn/, but whilst this caters to browser-based viewing it should be noted that you will need that paid description in order to enjoy the matches and highlights.

Apple TV, Roku

If you’re in the ownership of an Apple TV or a Roku set-top box, then you can live stream the event by using the WatchESPN app.
