Durban Sandshark Posted May 19, 2014 Report Share Posted May 19, 2014 Belatedly it's here. And more as a separate thread than it was when South Africa was hosting it. With Norway to start things off, NRK and TV2, fresh off from its massive Sochi OL-2014 coverage, will share the FIFA World Cup coverage. TV2 will start the coverage showing the first game with Brazil vs. Croatia (and likely the Opening Ceremony) and up to the semifinals with NRK showing up to the 3rd place game and the Final Strange that both channels will also show the simultaneous final group games at the same time. Will Norwegian viewers be able to switch games on their TVs? TV2 Norge and NRK will air 32 games each. Sometimes, there will be doubleheaders from each on some days. Here's the Norwegian FIFA 2014 World Cup TV schedule: http://www.vg.no/sport/fotball/fotball-vm-2014/slik-vises-fotball-vm-paa-tv-2-og-nrk/a/10137667/ SporTV in hosts Brazil, a nation we all know that loves soccer to the bone and eats, sleeps, thinks, and speaks it as part of its national identity and its global soft power, will have 56 games live on SporTV with the remaining 8 on SporTV 2, very likely the same-time final group games. This is how SporTV tackles the nothing but 24-hours of World Cup coverage, talk, promotion, interactivity, and analysis from June to July spreading itself not just inside Brazil but in several other nations, when the entire nation ultimately hopes to lift the trophy! http://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=pt&u=http://sportv.globo.com/site/noticia/2014/04/sportv-com-programacao-24-horas-ao-vivo-durante-copa-do-mundo.html&prev=/search%3Fq%3Dsportv%2Bcopo%2Bmundo%2B2014%26biw%3D1280%26bih%3D923 Yeah, SporTV's pulling out all the stops for its massive coverage to a nation that massively supports soccer. Just imagine what'll be like two years from now with the Olympics coming up! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
