World Cup Live on PC

in FIFA World Cup/Games, betting & entertainment/Germany

I found this article via Netscape on how to watch World Cup Live on PC in 5 easy Steps.

In an excerpt of the story found here.

For those of you stuck at the office without a TV, you can watch all the games and check the upcoming schedule, too. If you have technical problems with TVU, see the gHacks forum discussion. Don’t email me with questions; I won’t be able to answer you because of my schedule.

I don’t know if it’s going to work but I’ll give it a try.

World Cup Naked Bet

in FIFA World Cup/Games, betting & entertainment/Germany/News & Features

Vincent over at Microsoft Weblog sent me an email this morning about a website who is aiming to reach 1 million users — and the price is a naked woman.

In Vincent’s mail:

Have you guys heard of the Fuss Ball Berlin?
A german guy and his girlfriend have a bet. She will get naked in the world cup final play when his website has 1 million visits until 8th july 2006.

It could be fake but it’s worth a try;)

Are you going to buy into this?

World Cup on BBC Broadband

in FIFA World Cup/Games, betting & entertainment/Germany/News & Features

People over at UK should be happy since BBC will be showing World Cup games online which is the first time it shall happen.

The downside and argument on this is — shown only over at UK and not the rest of the world.

Fair enough, the question right now focus on Expats. How will they be able to watch these shows while outside of UK after all they are paying their broadband bills?

There are only 7 days to go before the World Cup and I would suggest that they act fast and think about their expats by creating a logon screen (Correct me if I am wrong. Does login exists in BBC?) where they can view what is being viewed in UK. Easier said than done. Being an IT Professional, I know how risky this is going to be, next to impossible. I would not roll-out something that has not gone through extensive testing and enough security test attacks. Making a small percentage of expats happy may result in great amounts of damage.

I reckon that these guys should have thought about this way sooner. Come to think of it, expats should not care if they cannot watch the show on internet since they can afford with their large and fat paychecks on pay- per-view schedule from their television. Another angle I see is that internet connection in third world countries, where there are also tons of expats, may have slow internet access and watching on television is better than staring at a slow motion video.

Anyways, in an excerpt of the article:

This means a summer of unprecedented top-quality sport online from the BBC for users in the UK. At Wimbledon there’ll be up to five live interactive video streams of action from around the courts, supplemented by a daily round-up of highlights that’s available for our global audiences too.

From Germany 2006 there’ll be all the BBC games streamed live in video; every single match streamed in audio; and then video highlights on-demand, again for every game.

This reflects us taking seriously what you’ve been saying to us.

You want BBC Sport on the platform and at the time of your choice, and these days a broadcaster can’t rely on simply putting on an event at a fixed time on a conventional tv channel.

Some people will want to watch the afternoon World Cup games on the pc in their office; others will drive home listening to coverage on Five Live or Five Live Sports Extra; and if you’ve been out for the evening you’ll be able to catch up with all the goals at the time you want rather than where we’ve chosen to schedule them.

Brazilian Feast

in Brazil/FIFA World Cup/Games, betting & entertainment

Is there going to be a repeat of this in a month’s time?

FIFA World Cup Brazil The sight of my favorite team winning is tremendous. Four years ago I was going crazy over Ronaldo’s performance but when Ronaldinho made that free kick I knew four years after he is going to lead Brazil. The kid has grown into a player more than I expected. His wizardry and development is awesome and playing in FC Barcelona gave him a big lift in his skill sets.

It would still be interesting to see how Ronaldo performs in the World Cup Finals.

Who among them leads Brazil in scoring doesn’t matter. All it matters is to celebrate similar to the picture.
