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 - Guardiola: We need to improve

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola says his team will have to cut out the mistakes they made against Schalke on Wednesday if they are to have any chance of winning the Champions League this season. City scored twice in the last five minutes to defeat the struggling Bundesliga outfit 3-2 in the first leg of their last-16 tie. However, they conceded two penalties in the game while Nicolas Otamendi was sent off. Guardiola said: "We gave them the first goal, we gave them the second goal and the red card. "We need to improve. I don't know how far we can get but we are nice to watch." Manchester City can be backed at 11/4 with bet365 to win the Champions League outright this season and at 2/7 to beat Chelsea at Wembley on Sunday and lift the EFL Cup.

Horse Racing - Laurina to take on Buveur D'air at Cheltenham

Trainer Willie Mullins has confirmed that his intention is for Laurina to race in next month's Champion Hurdle at Cheltenham. The Nicky Henderson-trained Buveur D'air has won the race in each of the last two years and is 15/8 with bet365 to triumph again on 12th March. However, Laurina is 7/2 after recording a convincing victory in the Listed Quevega Mares' Hurdle at Punchestown. "The Champion Hurdle is where we are aiming. That's the owner's plan and our plan," said Mullins. Laurina easily beat stablemate Stormy Ireland at Punchestown over 2m4f on Wednesday.

Rugby Union - Anscombe to start against England

Gareth Anscombe has been recalled to the Wales team for Saturday's Six Nations clash against England in Cardiff. The Cardiff Blues playmaker was handed the number 10 shirt for the victory in France but head coach Warren Gatland opted to start with Dan Biggar in Rome a fortnight ago as Wales beat Italy. Wales, who have won their last 11 games, are 13/8 with bet365 to beat England and 5/1 to win the Six Nations outright. "We're really happy with the experience we've got in the side," said Gatland. "We've had a great two-week lead-up to this game. We've looked really sharp and the squad are incredibly motivated to kick on."
