    Does anyone know if any sites that would allow me to stream games to my phone? I know about, and the app, but both arent too reliable. I have to work during the USA game and would love to know more alternatives...

    Wirelessly posted (Opera/9.80 (iPhone; Opera Mini/5.0.019802/18.794; U; en) Presto/2.4.15)

    In Canada we pay $15 and can watch all the games on our iPhones, Blackberry, and Androids. No extra data charges too and high quality feed

    But it is only available to customers on one network (Rogers Wireless)

    I tried many free ones on but as you said they arent reliable....

    You can always watch it on your computer if your work allows

    MobiTV App

    App is free, but you can get most basic channels and ESPN live for 9.99 a month, plus a bunch of On Demand shows. I bought it for this months world cup games and it's completely worth it. Works over 3G and Wifi perfectly.

    I was exactly wondering the same thing. Next monday the Netherlands ('Oranje' or 'Orange') is going to play soccer but I won't be home on time...

    Have you guys tried the ESPN world cup app? Apparently you can stream any game live for $7.99 in app purchase. I wouldn't mind trying this if anyone can confirm it's good.

    you can only stream the audio, but it is very nice. the mobitv app does video + audio, and works very well over 3G.

    Seriously guys/gals. Invest in a slingbox. I own 2 of them. I even brought the second one used on craigslist for $90. Add $30 for the slingbox app.

    So your total cost for live TV with essentially unlimited channels will run you less than $200 total.

    You won't ever to deal with finding live stream shows. Especially now the sling gives you 3g streaming over ATT's network (in the USA).

    Unfortunatley worldcup soccer isn't a high on the USA's main audience. That's why countries like Canada make an effort to make it available via mobile channels but soccer in the USA is still pretty much limited to the amateur ranks (grade school through high school).

    You could buy a 29.99 software for the iPhone/iPad called Logmein igniition to access your mac remotely and watch soccer that way but it's a clumsy way to do it.
