How to watch the World Cup on a PC
One of the easiest ways to watch the World Cup online is by using catch-up TV services like the BBC's iPlayer or ITV's Player . Many stations are also streamed live on the web, and perhaps the best site to use to keep a track of them all is 123WebTV , as it features a handy EPG style set-up to scroll through. Alternatively, grab yourself an Elgato EyeTV DTT Deluxe , a USB dongle with it's own TV aerial that can pick up Freeview signals, with a clean and lever user interface. It's a bit pricey though, and will set you back around £80.
