    Watching FIFA Finals Live in Hong Kong?

    I was under the impression that TVB or one of the four free channels would be telecasting the semi finals and the finals + third place match.

    Scanned the channels between 2:30AM and 3 ... but nothing was on.

    Am I missing something? Arent they supposed to be broadcasting the last few games live on one of the local free tv channels?

    Does that mean we need the DTV converter box?

    I'd always assumed the content was the same across both DTV and analog?

    I believe they have extra channels for HD programs.
    Don't have digital converter myself so stuck with watching America's Next Top Model.

    Shri - something called '2010 Soccer Fever' is listed to start at 12:05am on TVB Jade followed by a movie at 4:30am. That might be it....

    elle - I can see it is going to be webcasted .. don't think it will be broadcasted on the analog channels.

    Probably to ensure it is not recorded I assume?

    Just the 4 - opening, semis & final on the hd chans of atv & tvb. I caught a flawless CBC stream off a link in myp2p.eu last night. Great match right down to furlan's crossbar shot. Let's hope the final will be as exciting.
