Most fans will opt to watch the game using the traditional method of television. The English language rights for the tournament are held by Fox. Fox will broadcast 65 games of the tournament on TV, with 29 games scheduled to feature on its main network channel. 35 group stage games will be broadcasted on Fox Sports 1.
