Infographic: World Cup Goes Mobile
Like seemingly every other major sporting event, the 2014 World Cup will viewed on and enhanced by the mobile phones.
According to a new report from online security firm Avast, two out of three U.S. soccer fans will use their smartphone or tablet to enhance their World Cup experience.
Specifically, the majority of them will check live scores, read news about the games and live stream the games with their mobile devices.
Although the majority of Americans will watch the matches on their TV at home (77 percent), live streaming is on the rise. Many will live stream the games on their PC (40 percent) and 21 percent said they will live stream via their smartphone or tablet.
The experience will be largely app driven. Avast found that about half of Americans will stick to the official FIFA apps for scores and updates.
