Gartner critical capabilities for enterprise endpoint backup

Football fans who own a Sony Bravia internet-connected TV - such as the rather fine 32in KDL-EX703, reviewed here - or a Blu-ray Disc player will be able to take a gander at a host of Fifa-filmed content.

Sony Fifa Bravia

According to Sony, the video material on offer will include:

  • 20 Fifa World Cup Moments - highlights from 18 tournaments that have taken place over 76 years.
  • 14 Official Films from the 1930 – 2002 Fifa World Cups.
  • Fifa World Cups Stories, Legends and History Programme - a selection of short films focusing on "legendary players, celebrated moments and intense penalty shoot-outs".
  • A-Z Fifa World Cup Football Programme - 60-second vignettes of the most spectacular action from exclusive film footage from the 1954 – 2002 FIFA World Cups.
  • Fifa World Cup Classic Players - 15 of the greatest players.
  • Fifa Mini World Cups 1966-2006 - highlights of each tournament, starting with the 1966 finals in England and ending with the 2006 finals in Germany.

The on-demand Fifa content will go live in "mid-May", Sony said, all of it available free of charge. ®
