Peacock to Stream World Cup Games in Spanish


Peacock has outlined its coverage plans for the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 in Spanish, offering all 64 matches live.

Every match will be streaming live on Peacock in Spanish, offering live and exclusive Spanish-language coverage, a dedicated World Cup Hub and the Copa Mundial 24/7 Virtual Channel in Spanish produced by Tplus, Telemundo’s digital content brand.

Its coverage includes the hour-long pre- and post-match onsite action from Qatar.

The first 12 matches of the FIFA World Cup 2022 will be available to Peacock subscribers on the free tier, while the remaining 52 games (starting on November 24) will be available to Peacock Premium subscribers.

“Peacock is thrilled to stream for the first time the biggest global soccer event, the FIFA World Cup,” said Rick Cordella, chief commercial officer for Peacock. “Our offering on Peacock will complement and extend Telemundo Deportes programming to a wider audience with 24/7 World Cup content carefully curated and created for younger audiences with the purpose of serving the full spectrum of Hispanic audiences and soccer fans in the U.S.”

“The World Cup is the biggest sporting event for Latinos and a truly communal experience that transcends languages and culture. We look forward to showcasing the best-in-class sports on Peacock and super-serve U.S. Hispanics with premium scripted and unscripted Tplus programming we’re rolling out around this unique event,” said Romina Rosado, executive VP and general manager of Hispanic streaming at NBCUniversal Telemundo Enterprises. “Both World Cup and Tplus programming connect with the growing, diverse U.S audiences who live their lives across languages and cultures.”
