World Cup fuels Jordan TV piracy

Fans say satellite networks price them out of the game, and resort to illegal alternatives.

Jordan tv world cup

The World Cupis the biggest sporting event in the world, but many football fans can not afford to watch the tournament on their own televisions this year.

In Jordan, many complain that satellite television networks have priced them out of the game.

But on the black market, fans are being offered a much cheaper, alternative way to watch the event, and few are deterred by the law.
