How to follow the Worldcup without a TV

As most of you know, I don’t own a TV. This is absolutely no problem for me in general. If I wanted to watch a movie I’d just ask one of my friends for a DVD, or I’d go to the movies with friends. I always followed some brand new TV-Series from the U.S. via Bit-Torrent. But right now I’m a little pissed. I can’t sit here in my room and follow a soccer match! Well actually I can. Since there are P2P streaming services like Sopcast or TVAnts, I can watch a TV stream from Asia (CCTV5 rules!). But it will drive you crazy listening to the commentary longer than a few minutes.

Which gets me to the question – where is our German TV? Starting from the first of January next year they want me to pay TV-fees for my internet-capable computer! I absolutely don’t know what for. Would it be so difficult to set up a streaming platform for German TV?

But, well watching games home alone is boring anyway. So I will try to meet up with friends during the interesting games.

  1. Die Zapfanlagen sind wieder da.

    Na toll! Es ist immer dasselbe. Seit Monaten dränge ich auf eine umfassende Schulung unserer Vertriebsmitarbeiter auf unserern Grützezapfanlagen. Anlagenführerschein. Offiziell zertifiziert. TÜV-geprüft. Sonst wird sich die Geschichte immer wieder wiederholen. Bei der der Live-Präsentation während der Vertretertagung wurden wieder rote Grützefässer direkt nach den grünen Grützefässern angeschlossen und gezapft ohne vorherige Reinigung der Leitungen. Zuviel verlangt?
