Where to watch the World Cup in Portugal

2018 FIFA World Cup broadcasting rights in Portugal: TV channels, OTT, streaming and radio

May 17, 2018 By Michelle Bonsu
If you're based in Portugal, but aren't able to get a flight over to Russia, no problem. LiveSoccerTV.com has all the info you need to catch the Seleção in action this summer.

Portuguese football fans who won't be able to travel all the way to Russia will be able to follow Cristiano Ronaldo and the Seleção, as they aim to follow up their EURO 2016 triumph with a successful World Cup campaign, thanks to a plethora of options this summer.

Portugal are certainly fancying their chances at progressing out of their group, as besides 2010 World Cup champions Spain who present their toughest opponent, their quartet is pretty balanced. Below, you will find different ways to watch and stay up to date with all the live matches this summer in Russia.

When is the 2018 FIFA World Cup?

This year's edition of the famous quadrennial tournament will be played between June 14, 2018 and July 15, 2018.

2018 FIFA World Cup broadcasting rights in Portugal

Portugal will be making their seventh appearance at the quadrennial tournament this summer, and will be looking to get out of a quartet that contains Spain, Morocco (who are hoping to host the 2026 edition) and Iran.

The broadcasting rights will be covered by Portuguese broadcast network Sport TV, which will see the network air all 64 games, including exclusive coverage of 28 matches. In addition, there's commercial free-to-air network SIC, who agreed a sublicensing deal with public service network provider RTPSIC reportedly will get the right to cover eight matches as well as highlights from the tournament while RTP will be covering both the 2018 and 2022 editions in a deal that cost an estimated €25.8 million. Approximately half of that will be allocated towards covering this summer's tournament.

Don't want to be tethered to your TV and need to stay on top of the action on the go? Well, there's other options to tune in via phone, computer, or tablet, including RTP Play.

Of course, there are times that you may not be in front of your TV, and perhaps could be in your car, so trying to catch the game via computer, phone, or tablet obviously isn't a great idea. So, if you want to tune in via radio, the best option would naturally be RTP Radio.
