I've been desperate to try and watch world cup matches online, as I dont have the TV channel that broadcast the live matches.

Well, not really to my surprise, it's hard to find onlinei streaming on live world cup soccer match. Why? well, there are two reasons!

1. The copy right law around the world prohibits the soccer match to be broadcast live on the internet without proper authorization. So, either you have to pay for it yourself, or you have to have some paid venue to create your own streaming server for yourself. So, it is extremely hard to find a server that provides live soccer match for free.

2. Believe it or not, the second reason is becuz I am using a Mac!

If I have a PC with Windows installed at my disposal, there are pirate programs that provide live TV stream on the internet (e.g. pplive, Tuv...). But they are all Windows ONLY programs!

So, i eventually start to miss my windows machine from more than a year ago...

I guess, finally I find a reason to setup at least one windows box at home: Live TV stream, for FREE!
