BBC to show World Cup matches online


Good news for the office bound and the mobile – all of the BBC’s 2006 World Cup matches will also be broadcast exclusively live to UK viewers via the BBC Sport website, with four-minute highlight packages from every single game on demand.

The coverage will be exactly as it will appear on terrestrial television, with the same commentary (whether that’s a good thing or not I’m not sure). In addition to watching the games, you’ll be able to interact with the latest news or take up the Radio Five Live audio stream (when Lawro gets a bit much).

On a similar theme, the BBC has announced that this year’s Wimbledon Championships will be broadcast live on the BBC Sport website for the first time.
