    TSN, on the other hand, has nothing.

    KVRR, the Fox station in Fargo preempted Morocco-Iran for 2 Broke Girls. Fox's Wyoming stations are preempting Portugal-Spain for The People's Court. At least KVRR put Morocco-Iran on their .2, can't say where Portugal-Spain went to in Wyoming,

    BBC's scoreboard is designed around their new standard package



    Also TSN, despite having a part-time 4K service, is not doing any coverage, and ITV already managed to botch its botched scoreboard further.

    Well here's BBC's intro of their World Cup coverage, and it bangs pretty good.

    Here is ITV’s intro which is more “Artistic”. I like BBC’s better.

    Graphical elements and opening sequence from CTV/TSN.


    And in typical Bell Media fashion, they did not create a XX' minute bumper for the game recaps, e.g. CBC 2010.

    Fox decided to break into the World Cup Brazil/Serbia match this afternoon with the Anthony Kennedy retirement news...

    Which would be fine if they had Shep with a coherent special report. Instead, we got eight minutes of random Fox News Channel pundit/anchor hot air with Judge Andrew droning on and on about 'maybes' and no actual sum-up of the retirement announcement before they threw up the 'this has been a Fox News Special Report' card up and cut back to the game at the first moment they cut to another droning pundit to save us more agony. Meanwhile soccer Twitter was cursing up a storm at Fox (I admit, I was part of said storm) and were headed to Telemundo.

    Dumb, dumb, dumb, on both the part of Fox Sports and Fox News. I assume it was a B-level break-in rather than 'all stations' because it seems like many still were able to watch the game (and the Fox Sports app probably had no break-in either).

    Is it just me or is it odd to have NBCSN simulcast Telemundo's World Cup Coverage? Did NBC made a deal with FIFA to have NBCSN simulcast Telemundo's coverage or what?

    Not as odd as Fox Deportes carrying repeats in English of Fox's coverage. I think as long as they stick to their correct language rights, Fox could carry reruns on Nat Geo and NBC could carry Spanish coverage on E! if they wanted to with no issues from FIFA. I also assume it's because some markets only carry Telemundo in SD so they've given them some leeway to allow HD access to the feed.

    That probably explains why NBCSN is airing the World Cup even though Fox has the English rights, not NBC
