    Wasn't there a report several years ago about fifa looking into moving the kickoff times so that it's played at a more watchable time of the day in Asia as the main betting is over here? Wished they sorted that out!!!!

    Still work to do I guess. I hope everything goes well. Usually this country is football mad, football crazy in a positive sense and everyone would welcome and support the extravaganza but this time it's all so different. Worrying signs. Fingers crossed.

    Does anyone know if this package works with other networks apart from PCCW-HKT/one2free/1O1O ??

    I'm on Three HK.

    Yeah in the middle of the night is tough and our fate here in Hong Kong. It's a challenging task. For the opener I will stay up and for games like Mexico v Brazil or England Uruguay as well!

    This TVB app available in english as well? Think you gotta check with your local provider directly. The live stream is surely available for others as well but different conditions.

    Just talked to my phone provider. They won't offer this kind of live streaming. Looks like only PCCW/ HKT, one2free, 1010. The app is free but you can't use the live stream service. Makes sense.

    40% discount exclusive to PCCW-HKT/one2free/1O1O customers: $270   Original price: $450
    Doesn't this suggest that it is available to non-customers at the original price? Or perhaps they could be anxious to sell...

    Not unless China gets into the World Cup will there be a serious consideration of that. Only China has a large enough market to actually sway Fifa into really considering that. Japan, South Korea or Iran, big as they are, aren't enough.

    But given the way China plays, I don't know how long it will take for that country to get back into the World Cup. The last time they made it into the cup in 2002, they lost all their matches without scoring a single goal. And since then, their performance have been generally uninspiring, to say the least.

    I mean, their national team is regarded by the Chinese fans themselves as a national humiliation and disgrace: http://tyglobalist.org/in-the-magazi...s-soccer-team/. Their football team is known more for "Kung fu soccer" than any actual talent:

    Not to mention a full-scale brawl between China and QPR players (jump to 0:25):
