Besides limited free streaming opportunities, where can one watch World Cup games when they don't have a TV or cable? Be sure to call and double-check before heading for a venue for games outside normal business hours.

If you have TV but not cable, ABC is showing some games, but Univision is showing most of them en Español. It's available over the air in Oakland on channel 66-2. And many would contend the Univision broadcast is better then ESPN's anyway, even if your Spanish is limited.

Possible locations (not confirmed):

  • Halftime Sports Bar (14th St.) - wasn't open Sunday morning for match
  • Oasis Food Market (Telegraph) - not confirmed, but last time they had it. They also are more likely to show games involving Middle Eastern and African teams.
  • Asmara Restaurant (Telegraph Ave.)
  • GO Bar (Washington St.)
