Is it only on ESPN?

A colleague is going to the US on business during the tournament and she is very eager to know.

Thanks

Games will be on ESPN1, ESPN2 and ABC. Some of the big games, including Ireland, England and US are to be show delayed, so, they will be on during normal waking hours.
Most games start at 1am(Eastern time) until about 9am(Eastern).

I think Univision will be showing a number of games as they have the rights to broadcast in Spanish.

Fox Sports are also showing the games. If you are in the Northern States you will be able to get CBC which is also showing all the games.

I don't think Fox Sports are showing the World Cup in the US. It is only ABC/ESPN and Univision.

He truly is one!

He will probably only do the US games. If he gets on more and is really iritating I will switch to Univision and listen in Spanish;)

"Ah, bejesus, an' all an' all, it's a 'free' jost oatside the panalty orea...ah, begorrah, to be sure, the ball's nestled in the old onion bag now!"...etc...etc, ad nauseam until viewer's boot is planted firmly through the tv screen. If he's commentating, I'll definitely watch it in Spanish.

Anyone know if there's any build up shows on ESPN, or if they're doing a daily highlights recap?

There's a round-up at 8.30 PM (Pacific time) every night on ESPN2.
