Will you follow the football World Cup at work?

  PC Advisor 13:09 11 Jun 2010

The first game of the 2010 football World Cup kicks off in a couple of hours. Will you be allowed to follow the action at work, and if so, how will you do this - a TV in your workplace, radio, streaming coverage online or using websites?

On the other hand, do you not care about the football?

My company bans websites with streaming media, so that is out of the question. What's worse, our servers are based in Germany, so most websites block content due to "territorial restrictions" even though I'm in Bath!

To get around this, I have purchased a little portablt TV from ebay for £20. Its only has a 2.5 inch screen, but should do they trick tucked away in my drawer!

Work is for work, anyway, I'm having a problem finding any enthusiasm for this one.

For the many who are retired I feel the answer is a definite "no".

For myself, in addition to the above this game with a round ball bears no comparison to rugby!!

I won't even be following it at home. Can't stand football. Be glad when its all over.

For anyone moaning about work banning streaming media, just remember that most business ISPs charge for the bandwidth used, so streaming media seriously impacts on the monthly bill.

We've had a plasma wheeled in for any England matches during work time. Anyone who wants to watch can do so in the boardroom. I'm not sure everyone will fit...

I will be following it on the radio, can't stream at work as it's a corporate network so that's blocked. The company I work for have a sweepstake and I've been drawn Slovakia and Japan, oh well, you never know.
