Found this info elsewhere on the net:

http://www.tvunetworks.com/downloads/TVUPlayer.zip

install and dubbelclick on the channel that you want to see.

Some more info: this program was (illegally) developed in China, because the goverment there doesn't allow western, imperialistic TV. It's basically a peer to peer netwerk for life TV (PtP-IP-TV).

Yeah, the Beeb commentators are like that too but at least a lot of the print media (Guardian, Independent, etc) tell it like it is and say "We really did suck out there" or something to that effect, lol

It was a pretty sad showing for sure. I love how all the american annoucers hype the US team so. I mean they have potential, but nothing near what it would take to do anything. I think its going to be tough just to get out of the group.

The Brazil coach thinks the Czechs are the dark horse of this tournament as well.

Way to go Italia!!

If America's strategy was to get the ball close to the net, and for no apparent reason kick it RIGHT AT THE CZECH DEFENDER, then this was an A+ game!

Agreed. It seems like the American media, along with members of the U.S. team, are trying too hard to convince people that the team has a legitimate shot to do well. Makes me wonder who they're trying to convince...

Or maybe they are just trying to get the people's attention , and who know , more north-americans fans of football.

Most likely they're just trying to convince the American public in general that they should give a shit. At least enough to watch. Interest in it isn't exactly at the same level as in most of the other countries in the world.

Well that's my theory anyway.

A 'dark horse' is a person or team in a competition who people know are a good side, but they aren't considered a favourite to win, but there is always the possibility that they could string a couple of really amazing performances together and just sneak the cup from everyone else.

It's possible, but I figured they'd have given up by now. They've definitely tried that in years past. Most of what I've watched hasn't really even mentioned the fact that most Americans are not huge soccer fans. I guess they figure if you're watching their show already, you don't need to be convinced.

Ah well. I hope team U.S.A. can get it together and do better next time.

The Italians are similarly bad. Weren't they the ones complaining about how their poorly stitched socks kept them from advancing in the last WC? I remember it was something utterly ridiculous.
bad descisions and poor refree's also played a part.
