Live Football And Other Top Sports Online



Live Football & Other Sports Online - News And Games

Where To Watch Live Football, Tennis, Darts etc

The internet isn't just for Facebook and porn, there are actually some useful things going on out there in cyberspace! One of the most useful for sports fans is the ability to watch live sports streams online. What started off as something for the serious techno nerds and all around geeks has become very much mainstream and it's something that vast numbers of people are doing week in and week out in order to watch more live football.

The Bookmakers

An ever growing number of online bookmakers have started to offer live streams of various sports including of course the ever popular football, including top matches from major European leagues. Whilst the rules vary from bookie to bookie (some require deposits and some may even require a bet placed on a particluar event to watch it) the result is the same, professional quality live streams of lots of sports events that you just wouldn't get to see any other way. Technically it's simple, no more complex than watching a Youtube video. An embedded video player is used to show the live sports streams and because of this it's possible to view in 99% of web browsers, the only problem may come from some Apple devices, why they insist in not supporting Flash is anybodys guess. The only other restriction to talk about is that some events are Geo Restricted depending on broadcaster rights in particular countries. But the bookmakers are still an excellent way of watching more live football than you'd otherwise ever get to see.

The Broadcasters

It took some time but they're finally starting to see the light, online is the perfect medium for opening up sport to more people and increasing viewing figures as well as revenue from advertising. Of course what is available very much varies country to country but the trend is still positive for sports fans, we are slowly seeing more sports appearing live online. In the UK the BBC in particular provides excellent live sports coverage online, the Formula 1 needs special mention. Vital practice sessions that were once only a 30 second pre-qualifying summary slot are now shown live online. You can also be sure that every football match that the BBC cover is shown live online as well, an invaluable service for when you're stuck in work or away from a TV. Sky even have their NowTV service (they just love showing Manchester United, Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal games!)which allows you to watch live Sky Sports action through your mobile device for a reduced subscription cost. It is still early days and there is still a long way to go but we are slowly getting there, surely it will only be a matter of time before we can watch ALL football matches live online?

Current News From Bet365

Soccer - Howe eyeing Wilson boost

Head coach Eddie Howe is upbeat about the prospect of striker Callum Wilson overcoming a hamstring problem to feature for Bournemouth against Wolves at Molineux. Wilson missed the 4-0 home defeat to Liverpool due to injury, but Howe seems quietly confident that the 26-year-old, who recently marked his England debut with a goal in a 3-0 win over the United States, will be able to play a part on Saturday. He told reporters: "Callum Wilson has recovered well, so we're hopeful he'll be okay. "You need your best players fit and available and physically he's been good, as this is the first problem he's had. We're going to be careful with the problem and wait and see." Wilson has scored eight times in 15 appearances in the Premier League this season to help the Cherries stand in eighth place in the table and he is available at 15/8 with bet365 to score at any time at Molineux.

Darts - Cross fires title warning

Defending champion Rob Cross is through to the third round of the PDC World Darts Championship after beating Jeffrey de Zwaan 3-1 in a high-quality contest. De Zwaan earned the opportunity to play Cross by winning his first round tie 3-1 against Nitin Kumar earlier in the evening and the Dutchman then averaged 106.09 in defeat to Voltage - the second highest losing average in the history of the tournament. Cross, who is now 14/1 with bet365 to defend his title, had an average of 102.93, but it was his finishing which helped him to edge his high-scoring opponent. Cross told the official PDC website after his victory: "I think I had been written off on social media, but that goes with the territory. "If someone is going to beat me here they are going to have to play really well, because I can play better and I believe I can win it again."

Soccer - Koscielny glad to be back

Fit-again centre-half Laurent Koscielny is determined to enjoy the rest of the season, having finally returned to action for Arsenal after a serious Achilles injury. The 33-year-old France international made his first senior appearance of the season as the Gunners won 1-0 at home to FK Qarabag in the Europa League on Thursday evening, having been out of action since being injured in the semi-finals of the same competition in May. And Koscielny was delighted to have finally returned to the fold, with the Gunners currently having problems in defence, with Rob Holding out for the season with a knee injury, while both Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Shkodran Mustafi are suspended for the Sunday visit to Southampton. He told BT Sport: "It was very important for me. Now I start a new chapter in my career. I am focused mentally and I can smile and enjoy the rest of the season." Arsenal are priced at 11/2 with bet365 to win the Europa League this season.
