Ways to Watch the World Cup
The time is almost upon us, the world cup, the world’s most famous and arguably most exciting sporting event is nearly here as it prepares to return to its spiritual home, Brazil, the team who have won the tournament more than any.
One of the problems the world cup throws up is the timing of the games, and watching live football matches can be tough depending on which part of the world and which time zone you are in. Luckily, this is the 21st century, and there are ways around it.
- On your television. The old fashioned way, this world cup is on terrestrial TV in the united kingdom and much of the rest of the world. You may get the best coverage elsewhere but the fact that you can tune in on your telly is superb.
- On your phone or tablet. Apps such as TV Catchup or iPlayers let us watch things on the go on our phones or tablets, make sure you have 3G or a wifi connection and you’re golden.
- On your laptop. Similarly, but this time we bring streaming into account via our browser. Many tablets and phones wont allow this as they dont support flash, but your laptop will. No excuses here.
- Cinema showings! This showcase can even be caught in some cinemas and other big screens.
- At a bar or pub. The social way, get your friends out for a beverage. You can bet your bottom dollar that if there’s a screen, they’ll be showing the world cup on it.
