Euro 2008 to be Broadcast Over The Internet

Good news for web surfers who are soccer fans. Next summer’s Euro 2008 will be the first major international tournament to be broadcast in its entirety over the Internet. UEFA has developed a platform to show matches via pay-per-view according to

For web surfers in the UK, the cost will be 1.50 GBP per match. Presumably the cost for viewers in the United States will be roughly $3 per game.

This is promising news and, if the cost does equal $3, it’s reasonably priced to discourage people from using sopcasts and to watch it legally. In comparison, Fox Soccer Channel charges $4.99 for surfers to watch Premier League matches over the Internet on tape-delay.
