Has anyone figured out how to stream the World Cup games on their Eris?

Download UStream from the market. Then just search for world cup and then enjoy. Dads house shows NASCAR races on his channel.

Hope this helps

It's a VZW application, and I think there is a fee associated with it. This may suit your need.

LOL I said said that a few posts back. I would never pay for vcast. I'm really hoping to be able to watch espn3 in the future. Need a flash update though before that happens.

So, maybe i'm really dumb. Downloaded UStream. How do you go about searching for broadcasts??????? It seems all I can do is broadcast a video im taking with my camera. Which is pretty useless.

You can also use Skyfire and watch it throught that by going to Partidos en VIVO GRATIS del Mundial Sudáfrica 2010 | Univision Fútbol I go there because i speak spanish and the announcers do a better job than the English versions i've seen.

Thanks T2. I'll give it a try in little bit. I don't speak spanish, but I can understand a little of it. I just want to watch the games.

I've tried Ustream, but it seems like every 15-20 minutes I have to find another one. It's like they cut the stream off.

I can't get the video to show up on Univision for some reason. I'm looking at on Skyfire, but the video button on the bottom is greyed out. Any ideas?

I'm dumb, I didn't know you have to press the square that appears on the bottom w/ a play button.

Thank T2noob this is awesome.

I used Ustream to watch Mexico's game today at work, but I hated the need to go through every single thing that was in reference to the game because it was only advertisements. And, the one stream I did find was from Caracol, a Venezuelan TV station, I understood it, but rather have Univision's cast even though Fernando, the commentator is annoying.

I don't think I used enough commas.

I finally got Univision to work on mine. I just had to keep reloading until Skyfire picked up the video. Lex and Terry are showing the US game on Ustream this morning so I'll probably watch it on there.

I didn't see a play button. All I get is a white space where the video should be.

Yeah, it's pretty blurry. It kept buffering on me during the US game this morning and luckily I found a Ustream channel that was showing ESPN HD. That made it a lot better. I'm going to start looking in Ustream and if I can't find anything there, then I'll switch to Univision. Of course, I'd like to just take off work until July 12th!!

P2PLive.net - Watch Free Live Sports I watched the whole USA game this morning on there...good sound, decent video. You have about 10 streams to choose from, so every once in a while, you may have to switch feeds...but it shows all of the game.
