    How can I get live streaming of FIFA 2010 games. I'm in Canada so CBC is out only cable carrier. It's 2010 people :rolleyes:

    ANY tips would be helpful! Thanks!

    I usually use Justin tv to watch games from the European leagues. You can download the app (free) and just do a search when a game is on.
    There are people from all over the world broadcasting games.

    How the quality of those matches i.e. more ppl = bad stream? What's the chance that it would fail during the match or be taken down due to copyright issues?

    If this is the best way, I'll definitely give it a try! :D

    I'm with Rogers but isn't the mobile on demand $5 a month subscription? I'm not sure since I just read this on another site...

    EDIT: WTH? DID I READ THAT RIGHT?

    Hello!

    2nd EDIT: HELL NO!


    We need solution friends!

    ahh, geez, didnt see $10 for fifa games when i first saw rogers announce it the other day.

    kind of sucks that you subscribe to the on demand and then have to pay again for the games. if you really need them on the go its not a bad option

    otherwise like someone else mentioned, slingbox, if you have one.

    Since I see also see through the Rogers cash grab, I'm going to try justin tv since I don't have a slingbox.

    Hope it works out :eek:

    It will work best if you connected to WIFI ...but still good if you are just using 3G

    Not sure if these are solutions for non-Americans...

    ESPN's World Cup iPhone app will broadcast live audio and nearly simultaneous highlights if you're willing to pay the one-time $7.99 app upgrade. ESPN Radio's app ($2.99 one-time fee) will have live audio.

    It's yet unclear whether Univision's Futbol app will stream live games. I know that live "gamecasts" will be available. It might be worth keeping on your phone just in case.

    MobiTV's iPhone app will stream live ESPN Mobile games via 3G or wi-fi. It's $9.99 for one month of viewing, $24.99 for three months, and $44.99 for six months. It's an in-app purchase and therefore not reoccurring.

    Justin.tv's feeds can sometimes be hit or miss. The video quality can stink and since they're not authorized feeds, they can go out without warning.

    Works great over both and since the world cup is only 1 month, then its only $10 !

    Also my Fiance has it on her iphone and since we both share the same itunes account then I only paid $10 for both phones.

    +1 for MobiTV app! I streamed both games off and on at work today and it works great! Next time I'm bringing a wall charger for sure, but not bad for 10 bucks and you get a ton of other channels besides ESPN...

    I can get Mobitv on my iPhone, but when I search for it on my iPad it doesn't come up in any search results. I thought you could get any iphone app on the iPad, just it might have to be pixel doubled. Why can't I get mobitv on my iPad??

    It's not yet compatible with the iPad. Only the iPhone. There are a handful of apps that are like that.

    Do you know if mobitv supports video out on the iphone with the doc connector?

    I am considering buying composite cables and mobitv, ditching my cable at home.

    Sounds reasonable???? if it works....

    This is a fantastic site, I've been streaming games on the bus on my way home from work every day and the quality is always excellent.

    Watching WorldCup on iPhone

    You can try TVUplayer on iPhone. The lite version lets you play 2 mins. of video to test the quality. $4.99 for the full version.

    ITV worldcup is pretty good. Though itv commentary and punditry is horrendous!

    Now only if iPhone can play Flash video :D

    I can stream the video live from CBC to my Nexus One without any problem, but it takes a lot of data. Other than that I'm not sure how you can watch WC on a phone in Canada.

    If you get espn3 through your cable company or have tv tuner card in your pc/mac, orblive app.
