World Cup Soccer
Is anyone going to watch it? Saw an ESPN commercial where it said you can watch the games on the phone..
Any idea how? Would really appreciate any info thanks
Different commercial for any soccer fans in this forum:
yep i will be watching all the game hopefully.
you need to pay some kinda subscription for it.
I am surprise ESPN is going to cover it :)
Don't worry, I'm sure they'll cut away every couple of minutes to let us know that LeBron still hasn't decided where he's going.

I am trying to find anyone who has a sling box... Sling box for the droid won't be out until July (according to google searches :()
ESPN is also in England and they have taken over sky sports in showing premier league soccer games..
Hopefully next week they will release the schedule of the games they are showing.. If I find it, I will share it over here.. or if you know the link please share it :D
In a way I am happy that Martin Tyler is commentating for them .. he is awesome.. I consider him as John Madden version for soccer :D (hope that made sense :p)
For one of the games, I need to go to Best Buy and need to watch one of the games in 3D.. Yes for those who have 3D tv's, you can watch it..
3 more weeks and counting!! I am hoping US will host in 2018 or 2022..
Here is my guess... 2018 England and 2022 will be in UAE or so..
awesome....kinda cool to have some soccer fans in here :)

Yes... there are people who love soccer. It's odd. Millions of suburban kids in the U.S. play organized soccer, but yet professional soccer is not as popular as in other countries.
!! FORZA ITALIA !!

ESPN, ESPN2, and ABS are showing all games live in HD in the US. In the UK, the tv rights are with ITV and the BBC.
This link has the schedule and includes which network is showing each game (in the US)
World Cup Fixtures / Schedules - FIFA World Cup 2010 - ESPN Soccernet
Regarding the 2022 World Cup, the UAE did not bid on the rights to host. The only Middle East country that did is Qatar.
The following countries bid to host either the 2018 or 2022 World Cups: Australia, Belgium/Netherlands (joint), England, Russia, Portugal/Spain (joint), and the US
The following countries have bid to host only the 2022 World Cup: Japan, Qatar, and S. Korea
ESPN's coverage of the World Cup should be pretty good. The games will be shown without commercials during play. They may have some popup ads something like this portion of the game brought to you by Coca Cola. But they will not cut to commercials during gameplay.
The rest of ESPNs plans: Sportscenter at the World Cup, World Cup Daily, 30 min highlight show each night of the World Cup, live 30 min pre-games, 15 min halftime, and postgame shows for every game.
If anyone figures out how to watch games on the Droid please share. I know ESPN3.com is showing all of the World Cup games, except the ones on ABC.
