Brazil 2014 FIFA World Cup Coverage

Recommended Posts

Both songs are kinda sh*t honestly.

Jennifer Lopez and Claudia Leitte's parts in We Are One are good but Pitbull's verses are abyssal as always. When it comes to Shakira's song, the chorus is enjoyable but the dance breakdowns are terrible.

So, to each their own I guess...

Why do you think his parts are abyssal? I don't think Pitbull's verses are that bad...

I only like the chorus of Sharkira's La La La.

Ricky Martin's sounds too casual and mellow to represent the event/host (not that Brazil/football isn't that, but it's not really what I imagine when thinking of Brazil/football)

I really thought a song with excitement and motivation that demonstrates the beauty and competition of Brazil/football would've been composed.


^(My opinion when judging the music only, not the visuals of the music video)


If based purely on the visuals, I prefer Shakira's over Ricky Martin's :3

The promo makes it look like America, England, and Russia are the only *modern* countries ¬_¬ (whilst all the other countries are entirely rural or in poverty)

That fits many of the views of some posters here in GBs too

Everybody's having fun and wanting to get into the act from legendary Copacabana Beach and the adjacent streets in Rio kicking mulitcolored-painted multiple socer balls leaving prints to ultimately make the World Cup trophy as a mural on the side of a building that can prominently be seen from a distance in this very fun ZDF WM 2014 promo for "the world's biggest football art"!

ZDF with ZDFinfokanal very much leads the way in the German World Cup 2014 coverage from the Opening Ceremony to the third place game. ARD and EinsFestival will televise some FIFA 2014 World Cup games on some days including the championship, and ARD will exclusively cover it on the radio side from Germany. You can also see what coverage plans are in store for both ZDF and Das Erste overall here:

The DStv Explora, as recommended by SuperSport's Soccer Africa host Sizwe Mabena and its marketing manager Luyanda Peter, to be used as the finest way to watch the great soccer glory and highlights for the sub-Saharan Africa satelitte TV coverage (not just South Africa) of 2014 World Cup

Norway's NRK's and TV2's joint TV FIFA World Cup 2014 promo with Pitbull's We Are One song providing the soundtrack

Ready for the World Cup in Brazil? Sweden's TV4's soccer team certainly is, as soccer is certainly an anchor part of its sports TV staple. This is the first of its #readyforrio teasers.

ESPN's commercials have such good catchphrases...

"Football wasn't born here, but this is where it lives..."
"Every 4 years, the world has one time zone."

Things like that would be awesome in this type of commercial:

Do we know which broadcasters are getting a studio in the temporary structure at Copacabana Beach?

All I got here in the Brazilian websites is that among them BBC and Al Jazeera will use this structure as broadcast studio.

BandSports present its 20-person soccer sportscasting team from Silvia Vinhas to Flavio Sarenta ready to go for among the host broadcasters for the World Cup in its backyard with this promo proclaiming that the "the World Cup lives here"!

TVP is the exclusive Polish broadcasting home for the 2014 World Cup! TV coverage will be aired through TVP1, TVP2, TVP Sport, and TVPsport.pl. On the TV side, TVP1 will have the bulk of the 62 matches between the two TVP 1-2 with TVP Sport has all the games on its sports channels and online. This is the TVP World Cup TV/online schedule this year!

Why is everyone on Sweden's TV4's World Cup teaser promos posing like that being #ready4rio? It's because their posing exactly like the world-famous and iconic large Christ The Redeemer statue in Rio De Janeiro! Everything will get further explained from TV4 later, I'm sure.

SuperSport's Sub-Saharan coverage plans for the upcoming 2014 Brazil FIFA World Cup are ambitious since South Africa hosted the whole affair four years ago. It's got plenty of wide-ranging soccer legends working as analysts in Brazil, both from South Africa and abroad, to help cover it. SuperSport's plans to offer coverage in four languages--English, Portuguese (through its SuperSport Maximo channels), Zulu, and Sotho--and live and HD on the channels of champions, mostly on SSHD3, SS3, SSHD4, and SS4 (for final group concurrent games in the last two). And even some augmented 3D technology. Check it all out here! Too bad Afrikaans isn't a of part of the SuperSport coverage, since Afrikaners aren't as big into soccer as they are with rugby, tennis, cricket, and swimming/rowing.

http://www.bizcommunity.com/Article/196/66/113731.html

64 matches, 3 SABC TV channels, 19 radio stations, and in 11 official South African languages will take care of the South African terrestrial coverage offered. SABC 1 will carry the majority of the matches on the TV side at 56 with 90 minutes of pre-game coverage. SABC 3 will have 8 games. And SABC 2 will offer alternate viewing. As the article says, SABC will have to get creative in attracting South African soccer fans with no Bafana Bafana in Brazil--and will focus on the African qualifiers. Contains SABC's 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil PDF document down below.

That's a fun one from Sony Six! :)

RTE holds the Irish rights to the World Cup on all the platforms through RTE Sport. RTE Two will show mostly 3 matches per day on 56 games. RTE Radio will deal with help from RTE 2fm Roadcaster with daily news and full coverage of the final. RTE digital will have everything like all 64 games shown, its own mini-site, live blogs, and team profiles!

RTE Two and RTE Two HD promo for the upcoming World Cup centering on the last time Brazil won it all back in 2002 in Yokohama, Japan after Ronaldo's goals with RTE sportscaster George Hamilton famously saying, "I think they [brazil] can cash in their chip by now..." and the celebratory nature with signs Brazil brings.

Vietnam got to be one of the more surprising places to some where soccer is very popular. It certainly is. VTV's channels will take care of the broadcasting for Vietnam and will be there in Brazil with also its own World Cup-related programming. VTV promo coming up:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D-S-5pHNE5A

Canadians will also get World Cup TV coverage in Italian and Spanish through, respectively, MediaSat Italia/TLN and Univision Canada each showing all 64 games. Details are forthcoming.

Yes French-Canadians, we haven't forgotten about you in the World Cup coverage. TVA Sports and Radio-Canada Television teams up to cater to you. Radio-Canada will carry 18 live matches including the final with TVA Sports, broadcasters of Montreal Impact MLS and Champions League games, holding the other 46 and the exclusive encore presentation rights to all of the games including pre- and post-game shows in French.

Too bad Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Tre Kronor couldn't qualify after Cristiano Ronaldo's hat trick. But SVT's World Cup team featuring Glenn Strombergs (from Viasat), Andre Pops, David Fjäll, Glenn Strömberg, Chris Härenstam, Johanna Frändén, each wearing jerseys from some of the qualified teams, play a glorified co-ed pick up soccer match at the Skarpnacks Sportfelt on May 14 for this promo against Swedish soccer legends. It was just up 11 hours ago at this writing:

SVT's World Cup website:

Games are shown on SVT1, SVT2, SVT24, SVT Kunskapskanalen, and TV4. TV4 happens to have the final:

YLE's World Cup TV schedule for Finland. YLE TV2 will handle the majority of the matches with YLE Puha sometimes coming in to cover apparently the second half and beyond when TV2 has other programming committments plus some of the concurrent final group games. YLE Fem (formerly FST5) will have select World Cup matches in Swedish. All will be online/mobile on YLE's Areena:

Televisa pretty much owns Mexican soccer--even down to the Azteca Stadium in Mexico City. Televisa once again utilizes humor through Televisa Deportes to promote its coverage of the upcoming World Cup in Brazil with many Televisa soccer coverage personalities, both male and female, all attempt to keep the soccer ball away from the Rio De Janeiro residents at various notable parts of the city in a very extensive game starting and ending at the legendary Copacabana Beach. Since Televisa has a very strong infleunce on FMF and Liga MX, it's safe to assume it will air all of Mexico's El Tri's matches free to air. See if they can perform better than in the barely qualified CONCACAF/New Zealand play-in games

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

I feel bad for South Africa. How will they manage to serve all the national languages of SA on all the WC related content (especially the 24hr coverage program)? At least Algeria has a dominant language (though we still have 3 in total...).
