    world cup schedule for TVB both paid and free

    it seems ok, considering the last 3 world cups had next to none coverage, even slightly bizarre how divided the pay per view and free coverage

    The semis and final are free, but the 3rd place play-off is pay. Strange. But those times... killer.

    two thirds of the group stages are free, then paid remaining part is paid, knock out 16 is paid, then half of the quarter finals is paid

    it's like the offered free for the first 8 days, then 14 days paid until the 5th july, bizarre,

    if you're an England fan, luckily the important games, uraguay and Italy is free, costa rica is paid

    Time of matches are perfectly acceptable to me. Just the right time of the evening.
    I always thought that FIFA had a ruling that TV rights were given only if the matches were shown for free?

    Not a fan, a follower (makes it less 'sad' when... ).

    And, as a follower of England, I'm just happy to watch good football so I hope the semis and final won't disappoint, as so often they do.

    The final is at 3am. Others at midnight, 3am, 4am or 6am.


    EXCEPT FOR SOME PEOPLE.

    Any early guess on who will be the champions?

    My money is on...or maybe I'll keep that quiet for now.

    But one thing is for sure, England sure won't get it, they haven't since 1966 and I doubt they will be any closer to the cup this time, not with this squad and manager.
