ABSTRACT
The article reports on the audience share achieved by British Broadcasting Corp.'s online coverage of World Cup soccer in Germany. According to research conducted by Nielsen/NetRatings, the network's share of the online sports audience is bigger than its share of the television or radio audience in Great Britain. The findings infuriate commercial competitors who claim the pubcaster's online activities distort the market and make it difficult for them to compete.
