Apple Mac users get access to England match

posted by Evelina

England’s next World Cup qualifying game on October 10th 2009 will be available via the internet only, after a deal was struck in Ukraine.

Users of computers such as the Apple Mac will be able to watch the game online by paying £4.99 via PayPal.

It is a first in broadcast history that an England match has not been available on either satellite or terrestrial TV.

The deal came after Kentaro, an international agency appointed by the Ukrainian Football Federation, originally sold the UK rights to broadcast the game to Setanta.

However, the pay-TV firm collapsed earlier this year leaving digital sport specialist Perform to stream the match online.

England have already qualified for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa but will see this fixture as another opportunity to gel ahead of the tournament.

Mac users wanting to watch the game, which kicks off at 17:15 BST, can take advantage of the special price until Thursday (October 8th), after which it will rise to £11.99.ADNFCR-2524-ID-19394672-ADNFCR
