"This is going to be the biggest and most powerful demonstration of this, and it s just the start," Kosner said. "It s the playbook, it s the blueprint for what s coming." NBC s online coverage of the last Winter Olympics, also an international, daytime event, was extensive, drawing 45 million video streams. That happened even though NBC held a lot of the footage for its prime time broadcasts. ESPN expects worldwide online traffic for the World Cup to double or even triple that of 2006. The 32 team World Cup, a mixture of global and niche audiences where some games mean much more to citizens of Honduras, for example is particularly suited to the Internet.

ESPN s Kosner acknowledged that those with live TV on their mobile phones are still a "relatively small audience," but predicted that the World Cup will be "a galvanizing event" for the capability.
