    Showing the World Cup in school

    It has been requested for tomorrows opening ceremony and first game to be shown during lunchtime. We have two dinner halls one used by upper years and one by lower years. The lower year group will be happy as that hall has a freeview box connected to our AV system and shown through a projector. The upper school however only has the facility for a laptop or PC to be hooked up to the projector.

    So does anyone know if the broadcast will be available online? how long after a broadcast begins is it available on iPlayer or ITV player? I'm thinking BBC news 24 will probably show the opening celebration but probably not show the match.

    As far as I understand BBC iPlayer are streaming it. Don't shoot me if I'm wrong though...

    We're planning on using iPlayer, tvguide.co.uk and we've got a machine with a tuner and windows media encoder. Overprepared much? xD
    Any matches on during lesson times in the afternoon have the goahead to be put on for classes at the teacher's choice.

    BBC1 is streamed live at bbc.co.uk/bbcone - whether the rights issues will block it is another matter.

    TVCatchup - Never Miss A Show Again or iplayer/ITV live.

    or get a TV card with an aerial attached and stream the input out via windows media services..

    The problem with most online streams is that they are blocked at BGFL level.

    I've checked and it looks like ITV are going to be streaming all of their games with ITV player so between them and BBC iPlayer we should be OK.

    BBC Iplayer: BBC Sport - Football - The BBC's World Cup coverage and team

    The first England match on the BBC will be the final Group C fixture, against Slovenia on 23 June at 1500 BST. This will be followed by England's last-16 and quarter-final matches, should they progress to the knockout stages. Both the BBC and ITV, with whom the BBC is sharing television coverage, will show the final and any semi-final featuring England.

    All BBC matches will be available to watch live online in high quality video, while ITV will also show their matches at itv.com/sport. Video highlights of non-BBC broadcast matches will be available on this website. (Note: audio and video available to UK users only).

    We imagine that many ISPs will take an appalling shoeing off the world cup. This will be a real test of backbone for many. I would seriously suggest investing in/borrowing a freeview card.

    Whichever way the cat jumps, you are likely to need a TV licence (commercial organisations certainly do...)

    Have you considered the legal implications before you start planning how to go about it?

    A licence is definitely required when using the BBC iplayer to watch something live. We've got a TV licence for our Freeview box and I'm under the impression that a licence covers a single address with as many items of TV receiving equipment as you like.

    Possibly a new record! 10 replies before someone mentions legality/copyright/TV licences
