The United States is returning to the Women’s World Cup in 2023 to defend their 2015 Championship. The Stars and Stripes will face a tough challenge in the group stage but have an excellent chance of making a run if they get favorable results against Netherlands, Portugal, and Vietnam. Let’s take a look at how you can watch the American team as well as the 31 other countries represented in Australia and New Zealand from almost anywhere in the United States.

Which Networks Hold Broadcasting Rights in the United States?

Fox Sports has the exclusive rights to any games broadcast in the United States in the English language. NBC will be broadcasting games in Spanish through its networks Telemundo and Universo. You can watch Fox and Telemundo with an antenna, which means that you won’t need to pay to do so. However, games that are broadcast on FS1 or Universo are only available to those who have access to a cable or streaming service provider.

Unblock Your Favorite Events & Teams With a VPN

If you can’t watch your favorite events or teams because of your location, a VPN will allow you to get the access you are entitled to, plus extra security and unequaled privacy. Check out our VPN Guide for everything you need to know, including our top pick ExpressVPN.
