Watch World Cup Matches Online For Free With Astro B.player

Been hunting high and low for somewhere to watch World Cup games Live online? Tried all those horrible flash sites which keep freezing? Tried P2P TV and it ate up your router?

Perhaps you don’t have Astro, or you don’t have the Sports Pack, or perhaps you’re…(in the office..shhh..) and you REALLY need to watch the match. I know the feeling. I actually didn’t know Astro was providing such a service until someone told me on Twitter. I signed up immediately and checked it out, it’s pretty easy to get going and after you’re logged in you’ll see something like this:

Astro B.player - Watch World Cup LIVE Online For Free

Sign-up here: http://www.astro.com.my/bplayer

It’s actually totally FREE, even if you’re not an Astro subscriber. If you are a Maxis or Astro Sports Pack subscriber it’s even better, you can link your accounts up, watch ALL games Live online and watch past replays/highlight clips.

Obviously a decent broadband connection is required, so don’t try streaming it with your old 28.8k modem! I tried it with my 1MB Streamyx though and it worked just fine.

After you’ve signed up and got the player running, if you’re on Twitter (like I am) you can join in the B.player contest here: http://www.astro.com.my/bplayercontest/.
