Ways to watch World Cup

Online
[MUSIC] The World Cup is already underway, and if you're a soccer fanatic, every one of those 64 games means something to you. In a perfect world, you're not even watching this video. You're in Brazil watching the whole thing go down with a beer in one hand, and a contraband vuvuzela in the other. But for the rest of us, here's the top five ways to keep up with the cup, as told to me by [UNKNOWN], Vanessa [UNKNOWN]. Starting off at number five, social networks. A lot of these matches take place during work hours, and unless your boss is somehow cool with you watching them at work, you gonna need to keep up with them on the sly. That's where social networks come in handy. The Twitter account for FIFA is a great place to start, but if you really want to feel like you're in the stands, #Brazil2014 will give you the up to the minute trash talk. [NOISE] At number four, Apps. A great way to go if you can sneak off for an extended lunch break or lock yourself in the bathroom and fake some food poisoning. Download the Univision app for android or IOS to see the World Cup live and in Spanish. You will see the first 54 games without registration, for the last you'll have to enter your credentials from your TV provider. For English try the Watch ESPN app. Coming in at number three, the web. If you can contain your excitement, try watching the World Cup on your web browser and listen over some headphones. fifa.com, Univision or ESPN, unplug your keyboard and just pretend like you're getting work done. Just be careful not to get carried away and start screaming at your computer. If you're the only soccer fan at work, people are just gonna assume you're going crazy. My favorite option comes in at number two, a big TV at your favorite bar. Let's face it, every sport is made better with beer. The trick in the US is to find the bar that is as excited about world cup as you are. A British pub makes a solid choice or better yet just gang up on a bar with a bunch of your friends and ask the bar tender to change the channel. So long as you and your friends are drinking, you can probably have your run of the place. And finally, the number one way to watch the World Cup, on a 4K TV. 2014 is the first year that the World Cup will be broadcast in 4K resolution. Twice the resolution of 1080p and usually on a TV big enough to crush a small family. Really one of the only situations where 4K is justified is it lets you see ever detail on every player down to their shoe laces. Of course you may as well call this the Find A Friend option as the prices on 4K TVs are so ridiculously high. Worst case, find a big box electronic's store and bring a lawn chair and a cooler of beer and if you're lucky, a disgruntled employee may let you hang out for a game or two. So there you go five options for watching the world cup. Either secretly at work or drunk with your friends. I'm Donald Bellum. For more top fives head over to top5.cnet.com. Thanks for watching.
