The 2014 World Cup starts Thursday June 12 when the host Brazil takes on Croatia.

Starting Friday, there will be at least three World Cup games every day for 14-straight days. The start times — 12 p.m., 3 p.m., 4 p.m., and 6 p.m. eastern time — are more conducive to watching live in the United States than they were in previous World Cups.
