The world cup brings together fans from every corner of the world. It is estimated that 3.2 billion people or 47% of the world’s population will tune in to see at least one part of the world cup.

Russia is hosting the world cup this year and because of time zone differences, this means that most times avid fans are at work when their favorite team is playing. In an effort to show team support, you may be tempted to look for a free service that will show the game live – DON’T DO IT!

Accessing almost any of these “free” sites will lead to viruses being downloaded onto your computer, and then spread to your company network. If you want to watch the game live, stream it from a reputable site or through your cable service provider. If in doubt, check with Hybridge.

During the last World Cup, we had several clients compromised due to downloads from free streaming websites.

Enjoy and watch safely!
