Croatia v Nigeria LIVE STREAM: How to watch World Cup 2018 online in 4K Ultra HD

Croatia square off against Nigeria in the day’s final World Cup game at 8pm.

And with Iceland picking up a point against Argentina, both teams know that a win would take them top of Group D.

And the good news for Nigeria is that Odion Ighalo starts on his 29th birthday. The striker will be hoping to celebrate with a goal and a victory for his team.

Wilfred Ndidi also starts for Nigeria, despite suffering a recent hamstring injury.

There’s even a space in the starting XI for defender Leon Balogun, who missed training earlier this week.

Croatia, on the other hand, will be hoping Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric can be as influential for his country as he is for his club.

Croatia also hand starts to Dejan Lovren, Ivan Rakitic and Mario Mandzukic.

How to watch Croatia vs Nigeria online…

ITV is showing today’s match between Croatia vs Nigeria, with coverage starting at 7.30pm and kick-off set for 8pm.

You can tune in on your TV or online via ITV’s app.

Now named ITV Hub, this app is available on both Apple iPhone, iPad and most Android devices and is free to download.

Users can also tune in via Amazon Fire TV, YouView, BT Vision, Sky HD, Sky Q, Samsung TV, NOW TV, Freeview Play and Virgin Media.

It’s worth noting that you’ll need a valid TV Licence if you watch or record live programmes as it is a criminal offence in the UK to watch “live” television without a TV licence.

And if you’re away from home and don’t have a decent wifi connection – you might want to avoid watching an entire match on your smartphone.

A full football game streamed to your smartphone or tablet will use around 700MB of data.

You’ll also need a TV Licence to download or watch BBC programmes on iPlayer. This applies to any device you use.

Unfortunately for ITV viewers,  is the only channel offering crisp, 4K viewing, testing a 4K streaming trial during the World Cup.

If you want to watch in 4K you need to open up the iPlayer app on your TV or device, go to Settings, and then scroll down to ‘Try new features in iPlayer BETA’.

If you select that and you see an option saying ‘Play Ultra HD Trial’ (if you’re using the iPlayer in non-Beta mode) or Play UHD Test Loop (if you’re in Beta mode), there’s a good chance you’ll be able to watch the 4K World Cup streams when they start.

The BBC 4K trials are limited to a maximum number of streamers, so it is advised to tune into the fixture as soon as it starts with the pre-match build-up to maximise your chances of securing a 4K stream. 

One other essential thing you’ll need for a 4K World Cup experience in the UK is fast broadband. The BBC has stated that you should have a steady broadband speed of 40Mbps to get a full 3840×2160 pixel stream. Or 20Mbps to secure a 2560-pixel stream.

Although it appears, at least, that HDR will be available at much lower bitrates than that.
