It is nearly time for the 2010 FIFA World Cup and you will not always be in near a television to watch every one of the 64 matches that will be broadcast live around the wwworld. In South Africa the official broadcaster SABC will have all 64 World Cup matches broadcast live on television or radio in one of the 11 South African official languages. I’d rather not listen to football and watch the soccer live. SuperSport will broadcast all 64 World Cup games in HD on 4 dedicated channels. You’ll need to be a DSTV subscriber though.

According to Wikipedia Ustream is a website which consists of a network of diverse channels providing a platform for lifecasting and live video streaming of events online. The website has over 2,000,000 registered users who generate 1,500,000+ hours of live streamed content per month with over ten million unique hits per month.
On match-day head on over to ustream and search for ‘South Africa vs Mexico‘ and you might just find a live broadcast of the opening match of the 2010 World Cup.
Similar to Ustream, Justin.tv is a website that allows users to produce and watch live streaming video. Like YouTube, Justin.tv user accounts are called “channels”, and users are encouraged to broadcast a wide variety of user-generated live video content, called “broadcasts”.
If you’re not near a TV or in Durban on the 25th of June 2010 try searching for Portugal vs Brazil on Justin.tv and you will probably find the match broadcast live 🙂
This site is awesome, just discovered recently, when trying to find a live rugby match when the usual channels/streams were down. Not only does Iraq Goals offer you live streaming of various types of sport matches but they give you a broadcast schedule of the upcoming matches that will be streamed live on their site. If you find everything to be in Arabic just click on the English link at the top right of the page and everything will be a language you can read and understand.
I’m sure there are more options to watch the World Cup in South Africa live online. Do you have any cool sites to share?
