BBC offers live soccer video

From Media Guardian: Broadband users in the United Kingdom will be able to watch this weekend’s Six Nations international soccer tournament on the BBC’s site. The live streaming video is part of a one-time trial running through mid-March, in response to the fact that there are now more than 5 million people with broadband connections in the UK. “We are finding increasingly that people want to have the option of watching sport via broadband and the BBC wants to be at the front of the curve,” said Andrew Thompson, BBC Sport’s head of development. The BBC did not have to pay extra for the online rights.
