Samsung survey finds that 30% of UK fans plan to watch the World Cup on a smartphone or tablet
Samsung says that 2,000 people participated to the survey. 30% of them were planning to watch games on their smartphone or tablet, while other 30% said that they’d rather rely on a smart TV to enjoy the action. Almost half of respondents (44%) indicated that they’d record games to watch them later.
The funny (or sad) thing about this quote is that it comes now, when England lost (1 - 2) to Uruguay, almost completely ruining its chances of qualifying in the second round of the World Cup.

Not everyone can record on their TV, play pause on their TV, have it on time to watch a telecast. Dont speak like everyones got a TV.

One can buy a tv and a ludicrous phone lifestyle but one cant buy due to lifestyle. There are tv phones too

You can get a nice 32inch tv for like $300, so getting a $600 smartphone and $300 tablet and not a $300 tv doesn't make sense, unless you're really bad with your finances.

First, that $600 phone can be had for under $100 (e.g., the s5 is available for that amount). Second, the phone is for most people a higher priority than a boob tube.

Receiver with DVR. Or you can 'mirror' it from the phone to smart TV and record on the phone

Maybe the English fans will want to watch the 2018 World Cup on their smartphones and tablets since England are pretty much out of this year's edition. No offence to any England fan here. :P

Quite disappointed with their performance this year.

This World Cup has seen legendary players like Casillas and Gerrard screw up. What a WC!
