Besides limited free streaming opportunities, where can one watch World Cup games when they don't have a TV or cable? Be sure to call and double-check before heading for a venue for games outside normal business hours.
If you have TV but not cable, ABC is showing some games, but Univision is showing most of them en Español. It's available over the air in Oakland on channel 66-2. And many would contend the Univision broadcast is better then ESPN's anyway, even if your Spanish is limited.
