Im going to be at work for some of the world cup games, im sure many of us are, but I really cant do with missing anything, is there anywhere it can be seen online?

I imagine the BBC will have it, but at work our web comes through holland so any BBC stuff gets lamed by not available in your territory, where else could it be seen?

Cheers!

itv announced yesterday (but haven't release) an iphone app which will stream ITV1 over 3g, could be handy if it works and you have an iphone.

At home? Luckily most of the England games in the early stages are after 5pm. There's only that one on the 23rd (I think) that kicks off at 3pm.

Might be worth checking any data caps on your phone contract before doing this. O2 got really pissy with me and threatened to cut off my 3G connection when I streamed Match of the Day while I was at work a few times. Apparently 'unlimited' doesn't mean unlimited :thumbd:

I have to watch every match, really, every one.

If your proxy routes via Holland, have a dig around and see whether any Dutch TV companies will be streaming online...

Buy a 22 inch Flatscreen TV and pretend you use it for two screen work. Assuming you can get away with it :)

tvcatchup.com on the iphone (and ipad - probably other devices).

No idea who pays for it, but it works you just have to sign up.

Seems to work o.k. for me on my iPhone on 3G (on 02), no doubt the service will get a hammering during the World Cup.

all the games are streamed live on either the bbc or itv websites (depending which channel is showing the match)

You cant watch them outside of the UK, or if your internet is routed from outside of the uk.

i'm watching the games on CBC in canada but want to listen to the 5live commentry, however the bbc commentry is about 4 or 5 seconds ahead of the tv picture which is extremely off-putting as i know what has happened before i've seen it. does anyone know any way that i can delay the audio streaming by a few seconds to get them in sync?
