The FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 is attracting record viewer numbers to Spanish-language broadcasts on Telemundo and Peacock, following Mexico’s game against Poland providing the digital streaming platforms with their most consumed weekday.

Mexico’s victory on Tuesday was the most-watched World Cup match in US history, with 4.6 million viewers tuning in.

The first match of the campaign between Ecuador and Qatar pulled 832,000 viewers, a record for the most-watched Spanish-language match that was replaced one day later when one million people watched the US-Wales game.
