South Africa's SuperSport promotes its very ambitious and extensive 2014 World Cup coverage, analysts, and programming on all its platforms on its just-new TV spot here, proclaiming that "we are Brazil" across sub-Saharan Africa. Too bad there's not much mention of SuperSport Maximo's part

John Dykes is with Super sport now?

Just so that you know when TV4 does the simultaneous final group games in Sweden, those games will get split between TV4 and its sister channel TV12. But all of the TV4 World Cup games will be made available at TV4 Play:

http://www.tv4.se/sport/artiklar/s%C3%A5-s%C3%A4nder-tv4-fotbolls-vm-2014-538c6bdbc45948f4b300002b

Kantipur Television, Nepal's leading television network, apparently will broadcast all the World Cup matches. But NTV could still show some too--and is, according to Wikipedia:

http://rdulal.blogspot.com/2014/05/kantipur-tv-to-broadcast-fifa-world-cup.html

Cinepolis, Latin America's largest movie theater chain especially in Mexico, strikes a sublicensing deal with Televisa to show 30 matches of the 2014 FIFA World Cup from Brazil, including at least all of Mexico's group matches and the semis and final, in its 200 theaters across at least 70 cities all across Mexico:

http://www.sportbusiness.com/tv-sports-markets/mexican-fans-enjoy-world-cup-games-cinepolis-cinemas

RTP possibly could make a profit in broadcasting at least 36 of the World Cup matches, including the Selecao de Simao (you know, Cristiano Ronaldo and Co), and selling the rest (14 matches) to SIC and TVI on the Portuguese FTA side in the RTP operating costs of 5 million euros. But preliminary rejected by the latter two based from a previous agreement during negotiations:

http://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=pt&u=http://www.cmjornal.xl.pt/detalhe/noticias/lazer/tv--media/mundial-custou-5-milhoes-a-rtp-165318577&prev=/search%3Fq%3Drtp%2Bmundial%2B2014%26biw%3D1280%26bih%3D923

RTP and its personalities in all of its platforms getting ready for the World Cup campaign and getting into the patrotic spirit--flags, scarves, and the 2014 Nike Portugal replica jerseys--seeing the team in one of the Lusophone nations like on RTP1 and RTP Antenna 1 Radio. Oh yeah and the lip synching to the RTP 2014 World Cup theme song. Only all of Portugal's games will be aired on Antenna 1.

The music video version of the promo, filmed all over Lisbon, "Mundial Sodos Nos" (We Are The World--please don't get that confused with the more famous version from almost 30 years ago, completely different--this is the name of this year's RTP World Cup campaign)

What DR (through DR1 and DR3) and TV2 will share for its joint 2014 World Cup TV coverage this time with its TV schedule for the Danish. TV2 kicks things off with the Opening Ceremony and Brazil-Croatia and things seemingly alternate afterwards. Too bad Denmark didn't qualify this time:

That's interesting that ESPN actually aired 7 World Cup matches back in Spain 1982 and showing soccer back then save for the odd NASL game; it was all ABC to me under the Wide World of Sports banner, if history serves me right. That, and the PBS Soccer Made in Germany weekend highlight shows. What were those games and those from 1986?

NOS announces its World Cup 2014 (WK 2014) online/mobile coverage as the Oranje try to take on the world and perhaps nab that elusive championship (doubt it, though: not as much experience on the team like it was 4 years ago)

Yes, the NOS special WK-2014 app is now available and live:

After showing some of the TV4's #ready4rio teasers, this full TV4 World Cup promo that just hit now explains it all outside of Christ The Redeemer poses and what's going on. It's possible the guy getting everyone in his Swedish neighborhood excited about the World Cup starting with his own pose and then clapping is Jens Fjellstrom. Anna Brolin appears later at the Brazil game party. TV4's World Cup theme is Swedish group Panetoz's "World Clap"

Steve D'Souza from CBC toronto on location from Rio De Janeiro explains what the CBC is doing in its final Canadian World Cup coverage for a while at least and specifically what will be going on in that great multicultural and multicultural city of Toronto for its diverse population to celebrate during this time that CBC will do. Definitely seeing the CBC/Radio-Canada Television/Rogers Sportsnet/TVA Sports intro glimpses

Along with the English-language World Cup 2014 pay-TV coverage for Sub-Saharan Africa, that region is getting French-language pay-TV coverage through Canal+ Afrique. Canal+ Afrique and Canal+ Afrique Foot will carry all 64 matches live together with all the rebroadcasts on Canal+ Foot. It's got its own team of Francophone sportscasters, analysts, World Cup programming and even brings on its own comedian for its Canal+ programming. Interestingly, France 98 hero Marcel Desailly is doing double duty with SuperSport and Canal+ during this time.

Estonia's ETV kicks off its coverage the 2014 World Cup in Brazil on July 12 through ETV and ETV2 with both essentially rebroadcasting matches, sometimes as highlights on both channels. ETV will carry the majority of the matches with ETV will carry the final on July 13 and ETV2 doing the encore presentation:

Globo?

Got a panoramic studio in Tijuca in front of Maracana and the Ilha Fiscal one in Guanabara Bay (this one for Sportv).

But the main studio will be the "Central da Copa" one inside the Jornalism Building in Jardim Botanico.

Eventually, they can use the local news studios.

I wish the CBC had a studio at the World Cup :(. Unfortunately this probably won't happen unless Canada qualifies. But we'll certainly see them next year at the women's World Cup!
