TIM customers will have access to Sky channel dedicated to World Championship to be able to watch all 64 matches of the World Cup on the move with the quality of the TIM 3G and 4G network

TIMvision, Telecom Italia's on-demand TV, will broadcast the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil on smartphones and tablets. After the TIM Serie A football championship, the Winter Olympics in Sochi and the Formula 1® World Championship, the super-fast TIM 3G and 4G networks will provide the chance to experience another big sports event.

The initiative, which is part of the agreement signed last November by Telecom Italia and Sky, will allow TIM customers, whether or not subscribers to the satellite platform, to watch all 64 matches of the World Cup on the move (56 live, eight in deferred mode). To access the dedicated channel, simply download the free TIMvision App and activate 2014 FIFA World Cup offer.

The TIMvision App allows the purchase and use of subscription video content organized by topic into various sections (cinema, TV series, programs for children and teenagers), as well as the viewing of free content.

Thanks to the agreement with Sky, Telecom Italia has already made available on the move the Winter Olympics in Sochi and the Formula 1® World Championship, and will continue to give all TIM customers the opportunity to access some exclusive and prestigious sports content provided by Sky, which extends the potential audience of its viewers, conveying major events also through new distribution channels.
