Where to watch World Cup Qualifiers in the USA
Depending on the confederation, you can watch World Cup qualifying in the USA on different providers. UEFA and CAF have World Cup Qualifying coverage in the U.S. on ESPN and ESPN+. AFC and the majority of CONCACAF qualifying are on Paramount+. Finally, CONMEBOL comes on fuboTV exclusively.
The exception is the USMNT. Games for the 2022 cycle aired on CBS Sports Network, FS1 and ESPN throughout qualifying.
World Cup Qualifiers – English language broadcasts
Each of the aforementioned broadcasters airs games in English. The broadcast rights to World Cup qualifying matches are spread throughout the previous channels.
There is often pregame coverage for English-language fans depending on how the scheduling plays out. For example, CONCACAF World Cup Qualifying is almost always on the same day for each side. Therefore, the CBS and Paramount+ crew have pregame coverage on each matchday.

Spanish-language coverage of World Cup qualifying often comes on Univision, Universo and Telemundo. These broadcast rights are more consolidated.
