The BBC and ITV will both share the live TV coverage of the Brasil World Cup in 2014. Most of the group matches will be shown across BBC1 and ITV, with England's matches against Italy (on BBC1 / HD), Uruguay (ITV / HD) and Costa Rica (ITV / HD).
All World Cup on TV Group match broadcasts will be available in HD and will kick off at 5pm, 8pm and 11pm Kick Off times (GMT), and will also be available online live streaming via BBC iPlayer and ITV Player services. At present, the World Cup TV rights remain on terrestrial TV in the UK, so you won't find any live action on Sky Sports, BT Sport or ESPN.
The 2014 World Cup on TV is being played from June 12th to July 23rd 2014, and is the first South American World Cup since Argentina in 1978. This World Cup is unique in that it will be the first to use Goal-line technology.
