2009 World Cup Webcast On Demand but Not Really

PSP has started releasing the 2009 World Cup webcast footage. To my recollection, it used to be free but now it’s not (which is lame). In order to watch a match, you have to pay $2.99 and download the video via itunes (i assume it’s through itunes, it says something at the bottom of the page about going through itunes to get the video). So it’s not really an on demand type of thing, more of a pay per view but i assume you get to keep the video after you have paid and downloaded it.

There are 60sec previews but it’s not even worth it watch those. I only watched the previews for dynasty vs damage and x-factor vs red legion and you see little to no game footage, just Matty Marshall talking. I understand that it’s a preview but a little game footage would be nice.

Watch World Cup Online

PSP tried this once before, I think it was at PSP Chicago last year, but this time viewers must pay an unmentioned price to be able to watch the feed. The PSP webshow will be online from Friday Otober 24, 2008 to Sunday October 26, 2008. The layout of the show is pretty much like the NPPL webshow; pro field footage, interviews with pros, and sneak peaks at new products. The hosts of the show are Patrick Spohrer, maker of MWAG films, and Matty Marshall, pro player and the face of paintball on tv.
