Guess who’s not going to get any sleep at night for the next 4 weeks, after discovering BoxtoBox.co.uk and downloading this little goodie called TVU Player. The finest treat we’ve had this year, FREE LIVE World Cup Football! (a hundred million thanks for the tip, Mr. Nimer)
Double-clicking on the “tv screen” will bring it up to full screen. You can see the available channel listings on the left hand menu in regular view mode; there’s a channel that shows Hollywood movies in English with Chinese subtitles, so even when the World Cup is over, I can envision other sleepless nights. Too bad we didn’t find out about this in time to watch the opening ceremonies, and it does seem kind of strange to be listening to Americans doing football commentary (Americans do NOT know how to talk about football, this REAL football, not the bastardized rugby/soccer/mud wrestling they call football). Give me Andy Gray and John Motson anytime, but then again beggars can’t be choosers.
World Cup Football right in your own home! Who can ask for more?
So who needs to pay the cable companies PHP 6-effing-THOUSAND??? Certainly not THIS guy.
