Can't watch World Cup?

I was looking to stream United States vs Iran today at 1pm, but the main fox channel is missing from the channel guide and Fox HD is on the guide but when I go to the channel I get an error stating that the owner of the channel has removed it. I am aware of the back and forth between DirecTV and Fox and I just read something from last week that said you can watch the Cowboys and Giants game on channel 51 which is the Fox HD channel. This is DirecTV Stream, not regular DirecTV if that matters.

Is the broadcaster in dispute with DirecTV? You can check status here

This is a public space, not private communication with DirecTV or DIRECTV STREAM, so using your email as user name is not suggested for your privacy and protection.

There is a local affiliate owner of Fox that is going through negotiations. You can check if you are in an affected area: https://www.directv.com/tvpromise/ 

If you are in an affected area then you must wait for negotiations to complete. In the meantime you can use a regular antenna on your TV to pick up the free over-the-air (OTA) broadcast.

I have tried to change my user id and it won't let me. It's gray. I then tried it on the actual DirecTV website and it will let me but it said the user id has to be an email.

Your user name on the forum and the DirecTV website are completely independent of each other. The DirecTV website is private access to your account and DirecTV, the forum is public customer to customer.

I ran into the same problem you did with Fox HD for today's US - Iran game. Very frustrating. I installed the Fox Sports app on both my phone and Roku; you have to select Directv Stream as your provider in settings and they will send you a code for access.  Figured it out just in time to watch the match!
