Tudou to Stream 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa Online

This press release went out earlier today and I decided to put it on my blog as well. This is another great milestone for Tudou. During the last World Cup I could not have imagined that we would ever send a Tudou crew to a football World Cup to shoot our own programs and stream all matches on Tudou!

  1. Hi M | As I’d said about Facebook, many many congratulations!

    I’d wanted to ask if I wanted to tune into the coverage, is there going to be a lag for viewers catching the stream from outside the PRC? Like a previous discussion we’d had about the line between China and Korea being severed, and therefore the streaming coverage in say, the EU, is necessarily going to be a bit slower?

    Curious if I should make Tudou my online station, or should I look into alternative options?

  2. Adam, because all our servers are inside the Great Firewall I assume the viewing experience won’t be optimal for people outside China. I am actually not sure if we need to implement geo-restrictions. I think you probably should look for alternative solutions – or move to China 🙂

  3. Great great news but I’ll be very surprised if (especially with Football…) they don’t ask Tudou to implement geo-restrictions.

    Anyway, Tudou as always worked fine from Taiwan, I hope it’ll be the case during the the WC!!

  4. Great, I was searching for something along the lines of this. What would you say would be the most effective way of marketing online (apart from) emailing, because that’s a given.

  5. Super-Duper site! I am loving it!! Will come back again – taking you feeds also, Thanks.

  6. This is such a great resource that you are providing and you give it away for free. I enjoy seeing websites that understand the value of providing a prime resource for free. I truly loved reading your post. Thanks!

  7. Enjoying browsing through your world cup content. Unrelated but I read an interesting fact, were you aware that 6,352 soccer players have till now featured in Fifa World Cup squads, a quarter (1,545) of whom were never on the field.
