Univision to end free streaming of World Cup games
(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. To a certain degree, this was due to the fact that Univision's service was completely free for anyone to enjoy, meaning it didn't require any authentication through a cable or internet service provider. 
Unfortunately, that's all changing as of today.... 

1 HR34-700, 1 C31-700, 1 C41W-100, 1 WVBR0-01, 1 HR24-500

Original install on Apr. 20, 2008 - C41W & WVB self installed on Dec. 27, 2014 - HR34 & C31 installed on Aug. 24, 2013 - HR24 installed on July 23, 2010

For reference the providers who can authenticate with Univision:
AT&T U-Verse
Time Warner Cable
Verizon FiOS

The providers who can get the games via ESPN3
AT&T U-Verse
Verizon (Including Verizon DSL subscribers)
Every TV provider listed here:
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).

[Disclaimer] The definition of "soon" is based solely on DirecTV's interpretation of the word, and all similarities with dictionary definitions of the word "soon" are purely coincidental and should not be interpreted as a time frame that will come to pass within a reasonable amount of time.
