Streaming sites offer live action and fun of World Cup 2022 – SHINE

Soccer fans can turn to streaming sites to watch the World Cup 2022 opening tonight, unlike four years ago when mainstream TV and bars were the only options.
Companies including China Mobile's Migu and Douyin have paid a lot, reportedly more than 1 billion yuan (US$156.3 million), to offer live matches and optional comments for the Qatar event.
People can access the world's top sport's event by tablet, smartphone and game console. The multiple accesses gives people more choices and solves the issues of timing.
As Qatar's local time is five hours behind Beijing time, this means some matches will begin as early as 6pm here in China, most don't kick off until 9pm, 12am, or even as late, or early, as 3am.
But you won't miss a match due to a a metro trip – just watch on a smartphone or tablet.
As well as live broadcasts, value-added services are offered such as high-definition up to 4K streaming, online chat rooms, Internet competitions to guess what team will win, interaction with PlayStation games and optional comments.
The invited commentators include China's most experienced sports commentator, Chinese soccer stars, Olympic gold medalists, former TV commentators, entertainment stars and many normal sports fans who want to share.
The livestream services are basically free with some features charged for no-ads or higher image quality.
For expats, Migu and Douyin doesn't provide English comments. But they can still try PPL and Sporty on WeChat.
