How to watch at home
You'll be able to watch all this summer's big games live on standard and HD terrestrial TV. There will be up to four games a day, with fixtures taking place in the afternoon and evening UK time, as well as the usual-build up and post-match analysis.
The key players that can make watching live football on TV extra special.
A 4K or 4K Ultra HD is your captain and star player. It automatically upscales standard and HD TV channels, providing a greater picture and more in-depth detail.
HDR is your creative playmaker. It stands for high dynamic range and lets you enjoy brighter and more vibrant colours. Everything from the green of the grass to the flags flying in the stands will appear more realistic and lifelike.
Sports mode is your unsung hero. A TV with sports mode optimises the colour, contrast and sound for sport. It may also reduce motion blur, keeping every kick of the ball in complete clarity.
Make watching the football at home even more epic with these must-have extras.
Take the game from the TV screen to the big screen with a projector.
Watch the football on TV in any room with smaller models for your kitchen or bedroom.
Sound bars and home cinema systems
Hear the chants like you're there with a sound bar or home cinema system.
Catch all the action on-the-go by watching and following the football on your smartphone or tablet.
How to watch the football on-the-go
Being away from a TV doesn't mean you have to miss out. You can watch all of the matches on your phone or tablet via each broadcaster's app. Whether you're watching live on your device, or just keeping up through live text updates or social media, keep the football with you wherever you are.
Find out how you can watch the beautiful game live on your mobile phone or tablet.
1 - To live stream on your phone or tablet, download the app of the provider who is broadcasting the match live.
2 - Once you have the app, it is recommended you are connected to a Wi-Fi network. Watching live sport can use up a lot of mobile data!
3 - Choose the game you want to watch via the app and you should be able to stream the whole 90 minutes on your device.
Screen size and quality
To win at watching on your smartphone you need width and high definition. The wider the screen, the better your viewing experience will be. In terms of specs, most portable devices should be capable of watching live sport, but you can make sure of a smoother performance by choosing one with more RAM and processing power.
Data and Wi-Fi
It's best to watch live sport using a Wi-Fi connection. Unless you have mobile broadband or a large data plan, live streaming is going to eat up data faster than your paciest winger. If you're not watching the action live, you can still keep up to date with minute by minute text updates, listening on a radio app or following updates as they appear through social media.
How to watch on a laptop
Watching the football on a laptop gives you a bigger screen than your mobile or tablet. And you won't need to download any apps – simply go the broadcaster's website and watch the game there.
Watch with a VR headset
This is the first time ever that the big summer tournament will be available to watch through VR. Selected apps let you immerse yourself in the big game with 360° action, so you feel like you are really there.
'What's the score?'
Want to know the score? Just ask your smart speaker to tell you, or ask it to put the live radio commentary on.
