The servers are fine. They are just faking it.

Don't they have actual internet over there? Not like the tin can and a string shiat we are stuck with in 'murca thanks to "the free market". Guessing they won't have a problem.

Everything will be fine after England doesn't get out of group play.

I am hoping that I'll  be able to access some sort of live feed from at least their Channel 5 radio broadcast. I start a new job on Monday (with a government agency) and I don't know how else I'll be able to access it since I don't know any reliable US based broadcasts of all the games.

TV coverage in the UK is shared between the BBC and ITV, with more or less alternate matches. Both have online services, http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/categories/sport for the BBC and https://www.itv.com/itvplayer/categories/sport/latest for ITV.
If abroad you'll need to disguise your IP so they think you're in the UK. I use the ZenMate add on for Chrome. This lets me watch streaming video from the US here so I assume it will work the same the other way round.

One of our sales reps is British, so I am fervently hoping England gets destroyed in the group stage.

The schadenfreude will be delicious.

Maybe if you tipped your servers you'd get better service.
