Where can I watch the France vs Germany World Cup quarter final?

The first quarter final of World Cup 2014 sees France face off against Germany on Friday, July 4 at the Estádio Maracanã in Rio. 

Will France take a step closer to emulating their victory in ’98 or will Germany stop them dead in their tracks?

Kick off is at 1:00pm local time which works out at 5:00pm in UK time – not really soon enough for you to sneak out of work early and get to the pub, unless you work from home. 

If you need to set your Freeview, YouView, Sky+HD or Virgin Media TiVo box to record – or you’re lucky enough to be in front of the TV in time for kick off , here’s everything you need to know – plus how you can stream the game live online if you’re still stuck on the office on Friday afternoon.
