    Not sure to be honest, I'm gonna be using my wifi as if im in work I get free wifi. I imagine it will be a big chunk of data though.

    i'd like to know an estimate too, as i'll most likely be on a train watching them, either on the phone or via tethering on my laptop

    If you are going to watch it on the phone just make sure you have unlimited data plan or just hook up to a Wi-Fi connection.
    I'm going to be in the office so I will be using office Wi-Fi to watch it all! Have you seen the hot bikini babe videos on Yamgo too? Sweet as!!:cool::):cool::D

    There's an app on the market called Beebplayer - don't know if that will be showing the WC but it does stream iPlayer.

    I have 2.2 now so can pretty much go anywhere to watch it online (via wifi of course)

    But as I'll be down the pub won't be much use but I noticed Ladbrokes quietly released a betting app into the market last night called kickoff. Looks to be a world cup betting app where you can follow the teams and make traditional bets on them (like first goal scorer, win-draw-win etc). It's integrated with the online account so if you already have an account just download and away you go.

    Pretty sweet.

    Yamgo on Tmobile unlimited data is not smooth enough to view (not worth watching)

    Via wifi is great

    Lekky, check if your train services provide wifi that will be your solution

    Yamgo is the only thing that works for us lowly Android users unfortunately. ITV seem to think that people only have iphones.

    Yamgo quality is terrible though so the bitrate can't be that high so should be ok for data I reckon.

    I watched about 10mins of high quality on tvcatchup and It worked out to about 30mb so that figure for 90mins is about right if a tad more by my estimations.
