Live stream World Cup

Stand back from that copy of the Radio Times and bookmark this page. If you’re wondering which combination of Lineker, Shearer and Ferdinand or Pougatch, Dixon and Keane are going to be picking over the bones of England vs Belgium (or, for that matter, Morocco vs Iran) then look no further.

Below is a comprehensive list of the channels and times of each match if you’re in the UK – either from the comfort of your own TV or via the BBC iPlayer or ITV Hub apps on your smartphone or tablet.

If you find yourself abroad on your summer jollies while the World Cup’s on (what were you thinking?!) but are craving that familiar old UK commentary and coverage, there’s an easy way to do exactly that.
