BBC to broadcast World Cup online

'Has this pub got Wi-Fi?'

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

The BBC will broadcast all its World Cup games live on broadband, it has announced.

The adventures of Wayne “Roo” Rooney, David “Becks” Beckham, Frank “Lamps” Lampard, and Michael “Michael” Owen, and other nations' top footballists will be available for UK users' desktop delectation when the tournament starts next week.

The stream will carry the same commentary as the Corporation's over-air broadcasts. The Beeb will be restricting the service to licence fee payers in the UK however.

They'll be four-minute highlights for every single game too, which will be available on-demand.

Director of Sport Roger Mosey said: “We know a lot of online viewing is done in the office, so we suspect this will allow people both to do their job and to keep up with the very latest action from Germany.” If you say so Roger.®
