Contacts so far have failed to secure a deal between al-Jazeera TV channel, the official sponsor entitled to air the 2010 World Cup football games, and owners of cable/satellite TV providers.

I find it hard to believe that we might end up without a tv station to watch the world cup but you never know!

Plus, we get ESPN in Lebanon and many other TV stations that are covering the world cup.
