With the 2010 FIFA World Cup coming up fast (first matches will take place June 11th with South Africa vs. Mexico, and Uruguay vs. France), many of you out there are no doubt looking for mobile solutions to help feed your football frenzy. For Canadians, I stumbled across one such option from the good folks at Rogers Wireless. Thanks to their Rogers on Demand Mobile service, you’ll be able to keep up with the latest World Cup news, watch games live, and much more.
Available to iPhone, Android and BlackBerry customers only, Rogers is offering access to ALL 64 matches, streamed LIVE to your device. Pause, fast-forward and rewind the games as needed… you’re in total control. Besides the ability to tune-in and catch the game no matter where you are, you’ll also get video highlights, standings, schedules, team profiles, interviews, news, text alerts and much more.
So how much are you going to have to shell out to get this? Here’s the rundown. First, you’ll need to subscribe to Rogers on Demand Mobile for $5 per month. With this subscription, you’ll get video content from such places as MTV, CBC, Sportsnet and more. From there, you’ll need to ADD the 2010 FIFA World Cup premium access package for a one-time fee of $10. Not bad, $15 for all the soccer, er, football video, news and updates you can handle… and of course, after the World Cup has come and gone, you can unsubscribe from the Rogers on Demand service.
Note: Rogers also has a special promotion running right now. If you do go ahead and subscribe to the Rogers on Demand service, you’ll automatically be entered for a chance to win a Sony Laptop an 3D entertainment prize pack. It’s all good stuff… but you must register before June 15th.
