leave a comment »

FIFA World Cup 2010 is just around the corner and and I’m one of the die hard fans who doesnt want to miss a single minute of the  matches. Special thanks for BBC for taking the trouble to make a calendar that can be used with Windows Live and many other apps as well. The Calendar is in .ics format which enables multi-app usage. However, here I will show how to use the calendar with the Windows Live Calendar. This is a great way for the soccer fans who are not sure about the times and  for the people who are on the go as you will get a Reminder before each match. Theres nothing much you need to do. Just go through the following steps and your Windows Live Calendar will be fully updated with the match fixtures with a brief info on the broadcasts by BBC for the UK fans and you will be notified 15 minutes(can be changed) just before the match.

  • Download the World Cup fixtures v1.0 and save the .ics file to your Desktop.
  • Go to the Windows Live Calendar webpage.
  • Sign In with your Windows Live ID.
  • Click on Subscribe, which is located just above the Calendar.
  • Select and Browse for the .ics file which you downloaded previously.
  • Select Import into a new calendar.
  • Click Import calendar.
  • Click Done.

Now you will see that the Calendar is already updated with the Match Fixtures according to your Time Zone*.  You can even use the Windows Live Mail Desktop Applications Calendar Option too. Each Event will give you a brief summary on the

  • Match Name (Teams and Group)
  • Venue
  • Time
  • A Description on BBC s Coverage.
  • and you can set a custom time for a reminder.
