The FIFA World Cup is about to start, but maybe you will be busy during one or several of the matches in the tournament. Is there a way to watch the World Cup 2018 matches on demand, whenever you desire to watch them?
You might have several reasons to miss out on a match during the World CUp. The people of Australia suffer from the time difference, meaning that most matches in the World Cup will be played during the middle of the night in Australia. They might wake up to watch their own team play in the middle of the night, but the rest of the matches is easier to watch on demand during the daytime. But, how and where is it possible to watch the replay of the World Cup matches online?
- Want to watch the World Cup online, real-time? Here you can find instructions on how it can be done.
Watch the full FIFA World Cup matches online on-demand/replay
How is it possible? At the very moment, I do not have a 100% solution. As the first match between Russia and Saudi Arabia will be played in a couple of hours I will have better knowledge on the subject, and I will do my best to update the article then.
What I do know, and what I can promise, is that the Hungarian TV channel M4 will broadcast all the World Cup matches live, and then at least once again, normally 8-9-10-11 hours after the time of the original match. But, this is not on-demand, because they simply play a recording of the original match, and if you miss out on the recording, you have no new chance to watch the entire game.
If you still want to give it a try, read my instructions on how to watch M4 in Hungary online here. Notice that the instructions will help you to watch all the World Cup 2018 matches online (real-time), and then at least watch them once as they are repeated later the same day, or during the night-time in Hungary.

Update June 15th
ITV broadcasted the first match, Russia vs. Saudi Arabia. The match can be seen on-demand at their website. I do not know for how long it can be streamed, but it might be that ITV will keep the matches they broadcast themselves available for 24 hours, maybe more, maybe less.

Another version is if you have a Fubo TV subscription because then you can record the actual matches and watch them whenever you want to. Fubo TV is a brilliant service for football fans as it gives you access to all the best leagues in the world, and of course, all the action from the World Cup.

The FIFA World Cup on YouTube
You will not be able to stream the full matches from the World Cup on YouTube, but FIFA has their own YouTube channel, and there you can see the highlights from all the different matches played during the World Cup. That is a great offer. Visit the FIFA YouTube channel beneath.
Are there other ways to watch recordings of the World Cup 2018 matches online?
I will update the article as soon as I know more, most likely there will be an update to this article on June 15th in the morning.
