    Dunno if this has been posted, but the BBC are to show the world cup games which they are showing on the tv, live via the web. A great way to keep people in work, instead of skiving off, but not actually doing any work, and slowing down corporate networks lol! :p

    The reason - Copyright issues. The BBC only has the rights to show the matches in the UK. :)
