HOW TO: Get Your 2010 Fifa World Cup Fix On Your iPhone/iPad

The 2010 Fifa World Cup, the biggest sporting event in the world, is going to be big this year. If you have an iOS device you can stay up to date 24/7. If you don’t own an iOS device yet, don’t worry… there are a bunch of ways to get your fix.

All sources after the jump…

iPhone and iPad apps

ESPN Radio: LISTEN to over 35 ESPN Radio podcasts right from your iPhone or iPod Touch including The BS Report with Bill Simmons, Pardon The Interruption, Around The Horn and Fantasy Focus.

ESPN ScoreCenter: ScoreCenter offers the most comprehensive sports coverage available on your iPhone or iPod touch.

ESPN 2010 FIFA Word Cup: For the first time ever the Cup will be lifted in Africa and ESPN will be there to bring you exclusive coverage of this historic event to your iPhone or iPod touch.

Sun Football: The Sun’s Football App brings you unrivalled coverage of the 2010 World Cup in South Africa from the UK’s favourite newspaper.

FIFA World Cup ( Game ): You can lead your favorite team to victory, instead of watching team loose

OrbLive: OrbLive is a breakthrough application that provides a new way to enjoy your media on the iPhone or touch.

EyeTV: The EyeTV app enables you to watch live TV, view previously recorded shows, check the program guide and set up recordings anywhere you go, via a 3G or Wi-Fi connection.

SlingPlayer: When connected over 3G or Wi-Fi to a Slingbox SOLO, PRO, or PRO-HD (Slingboxes sold separately), the award winning SlingPlayer Mobile software will play anything you can see on your TV at home on your iPhone or iPod touch. Now you can change channels, control your DVR and watch your favorite shows right on your phone.

TVUPlayer: Choose from 900 international TV channels without fumbling with any extra hardware. The selection of U.S. stations is a little lacking, so remember to search for “football,” not “soccer.”

MobiTV: Since AT&T Mobile TV doesn’t play nice with the iPhone, the only way to watch ESPN Mobile TV is with the MobiTV app and a $9.99 monthly subscription plan.
