New Technologies Introduced in Brazil for the World Cup
The World Cup and new technology has gone hand in hand ever since the 1970 World Cup in Mexico. The 1970 World Cup was the first to be broadcast in color. The Mexican games were the start of a relationship between new technology in television and the World Cup. More recently, the 2006 games in Germany were the first to be broadcast in HDTV and the South African games were available via Internet streaming, while some games were even available in 3D television.
