    (Engadget.com) - Many people in the US, even those who don't speak or understand Spanish, have been using the Univision Deportes app to watch the World Cup.

    Every ISP listed here:

    * Requires TV subscription to ESPN, every other provider can get the games via ESPN3 with an ISP only subscription

    Between the providers who have Univision and/or ESPN3, the only people losing out are those who are OTA only.

    CBC in Canada also streams all games. In English, and no television subscription required. You just need to be in Canada (geo-blocked on IP address).
