    "I choose to watch the World Cup via SkySports. They offer the same service that the other streaming sites offer. The difference is that I have been a SkySports subscriber for years now and I am not going to move over to other streaming sites. Why? This has worked for me for the longest time. So if it ain't broke, why fix it?"

    "For sporting events as big as the World Cup, BBC Sports is one of the best resources for watching the games live! I dunno why I prefer watching soccer games while listening to English commentary. Maybe it's because the average Brits know the game more intimately than the professional American broadcasters? LoL! But I love watching soccer while listening to them English guys. It makes the game feel authentic even when I am just streaming."
