U.S. Women's soccer

The U.S. Women's National Team already has scored 16 goals in the first two games of the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup. OK, 13 of those came in the opener against a horribly outmatched Thailand team, with the others on Sunday against Chile.

But Sweden awaits — and should prove to be the toughest test for the U.S. so far in this tournament.

The game starts at 3 p.m. Eastern time (that's noon on the West Coast) Thursday, June 20. It will be broadcast on Fox on the United States.

And you've got a few ways to watch.

We'll start with our favorite — watching the U.S. vs. Sweden in 4K resolution. It's not a stretch to say that watching live soccer in 4K is only about a thousand times better than topping out at 1080p. You maybe can't quite see every blade of grass, but it's close. And there are two options for this.

Stream the U.S. vs. Sweden in 4K

The first is Fubo TV. It's streaming every 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup game in 4K resolution — and it's got a free seven-day trial.

The other way is to just fire up the Fox Sports app. (It's available pretty much everywhere.) You'll need to have some other service by which to log in, though. It's not a standalone sort of thing.

Watch for free with an over-the-air antenna

Because the game is being broadcast on Fox, that means it's almost certainly being broadcast over their air where you live. (That's always subject to change, but it's a pretty good bet.)

And to watch it OTA, you'll need an OTA antenna. While most folks tend to ask "What's the best antenna" — and indeed we've got a great list of them — it's actually the direction of the antenna that tends to be more important. Yes, range is a thing. And it's always better to have an antenna outside, if possible. But for me, direction is key.

Anyway. Get yourself an OTA antenna, and plug it into your TV's built in tuner. Or, better yet, use something like HDHomeRun or Tablo to take that OTA stream and share it across multiple devices throughout your home.

Watch on your favorite HD streaming service

If you don't care about watching in 4K (though you really should), you'll also most likely be able to watch the U.S. women take on Sweden via just about every live streaming service available. The only catch is that your streaming service of choice will need to actually carry Fox. It probably does, but here's where you can check, just in case.

For games not on Fox, you'll need to turn to FS1 or FS2. Here's where all you can find them:
