BBC broadcasting World Cup Football Matches Live: The golden age of Web casting just beginning

People from America and Europe could not enjoy the last World Cup in Asia because of the time difference. All the matches were held at a late hour of night or early moring in these regions. So, this most watched sports tournament could not hit many viewers in its last tournament. But this year it is expected to have a record audience in the upcoming tournament. Considering such a situation BBC has launched a service for the working people in England.

Yes dear readers, with the support of British Commercial Broadcaster ITV, BBC is going to live broadcast world cup matches in their TV channel as well in their websites through online. This is the first time they are going to live broadcast world cup matches through online. They also broadcast football matches in their websites like last world club championship final between Liverpool and Sao Paolo in 2005. They also broadcast Olympic Games and now they are planning to broadcast the next Wimbledon Tennis Tournament in their websites. Thus, a new era in online broadcasting is taking place.

BBC took this project for those people who have to go to their work place during the matches so that they can be in touch of the biggest sporting tournament. BBC TV channel will broadcast 23 first round matches and they have right to telecast the England’s second round and quarter final matches if England can qualify those rounds. Moreover, they will also broadcast a four-minute highlights on each world cup matches. All of these first round and England’s second round and quarterfinal matches and matches highlights will be available to watch live in bbc.co.uk/worldcup and bbc.co.uk/sport with the same commentary. BBC will also telecast radio commentary for the convenience of English fans. BBC journalists will also write minute by minute report that will be published in their websites.

Well, it is seen that BBC has taken all the possible steps to keep people in touch of World Cup football.

Is there anything, do you think, that BBC could do for their viewers?
