Fox is not the only network to set viewing records with its coverage of the Women's World Cup. Networks in Canada and France also broke marks in the first round of play. The largest viewerships have been recorded in Germany and Japan despite late evening and late morning local air times, respectively.

About 2.3 million viewers tuned in to CTV, TSN and RDS to watch Canada’s 1-0 win over New Zealand and set a record for a Women’s World Cup audience in Canada.

French broadcaster W9 recorded its highest audience on record, attracting 2.2 million viewers for the France-Mexico clash.

German public broadcasters ARD and ZDF drew 7.6 million people viewers for the Germany-Norway game, which represented 36 percent of all Germans watching television.

Japanese network Fuji TV drew an audience of 6.1 million fans for the final group match between Japan and Cameroon, beating all viewing figures from the 2007 edition of the Women’s World Cup and higher than all figures for 2011 except the Japan-USA final.
