BBC to beam World Cup TV matches online

World Cup games that will be shown on BBC television will also be available live and free-to-air to British Internet users at the same time, an AFP report said.
"We know a lot of online viewing is done in the office, so we suspect this will allow people both to do their job and to keep up with the very latest action from Germany," BBC director of sport, Roger Mosey, was quoted by AFP as saying.
Games in the tournament, which would start on June 9, would be televised by both the BBC and British commercial broadcaster ITV, the report said.
The Internet deal meant all of the BBC's games in the group stages would be shown, including England's opener on June 10 against Paraguay, plus the corporation's rights to those fixtures in the knock-out stages, the report further said.
