Windows users, you’re going to have to plug in that URL into VLC.

I’ve been working on breaking BBC‘s geographical censorship of World Cup coverage. I think I’ve managed it.

Please take some time to complain to the BBC (like I have) about UK only World cup broadcasting. I don’t necessarily blame the BBC, I blame FIFA‘s greed. “Region locking” World cup coverage is simply not on.

If you hear nothing from the stream, that horrible proprietary realplayer software has stalled and it is unlikely it will restart unless I’m around. Good luck.
