Football fans will be hard pushed to leave the sofa this summer with Sony adding FIFA World Cup content to its internet video service on Bravia TVs and Blu-ray Disc players. Previous World Cups can be re-lived with content including the top 20 tournament moments and profiles of legendary players.

Christian Brown, Senior Category Marketing Manager for Home Entertainment at Sony UK, said: “We can make some of the greatest football moments come to life in consumers’ living rooms across Europe at the touch of a button.”

The content will be hosted through the Bravia Internet Video service, which already broadcasts Demand Five, film channel Lovefilm and YouTube, as well as social networking site Facebook.
