Watch FIFA World Cup on Apple TV

The two channels that will be streaming FIFA live on Apple tv in the US are Fox Sports GO and NBC Sports. These two channels have the broadcasting rights of FIFA so there shouldn’t any problem watching FIFA World Cup on Apple Tv. Other than these channels BBC, MatchTV, SBS, and ITV also have the rights to stream FIFA in their respective countries.

As the recent cord-cutting trend is gaining popularity, many people in the US and other countries are switching to TV boxes and devices like Apple Tv to stream their favorite Tv shows, movies, and sports.

But, there’s this thing with Apple that bugs many of its users, the inability to download or configure any App that is either not preinstalled or is not offered by Apple. Another feature that demotivates a user to go for Apple Tv is that most of its apps are geo-restricted which means that you can only access them if you reside the country of their origin.

Apps like CBS and Fox Sports are geo-restricted as well which means that they are only available.

For example, the best apps are available in the US version of iTunes, but if you live elsewhere, you won’t be able to access these apps, including Fox Sports and NBC Sports. But, we have a solution for that and its name is VPN. Here’s what you need to do:
