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

Tennis - Zverev close to cracking Nadal

Alexander Zverev believes he is close to discovering the secret to beating Rafael Nadal on clay, despite having been beaten by the Spaniard in the final of the Italian Open. The German lost out 6-1 1-6 6-3 in Rome, missing out after being a break of serve up in the final set when rain intervened. However, Zverev was not too downhearted with seeing an opportunity to lay down a pre-French Open marker go begging, having recently claimed the titles at the both the BMW Open in Munich and the Madrid Masters. He told the official ATP Tour website: "I was not far away from beating Rafa on a clay court in a Masters final. "I found the way (in the middle of the match), I felt like I had control over most of the points, that is very important against him on clay." Zverev, who has yet to make it past the fourth round of any Grand Slam, is 7/1 with bet365 to win the French Open.

Soccer - Spending is needed warns Courtois

Thibaut Courtois believes Chelsea will have to be very active in the summer transfer market if they are to be genuine Premier League title contenders next season. The Belgium goalkeeper expects the likes of Manchester City and Manchester United to splash the cash this summer, leaving the Blues to play catch-up after they finished down in fifth place in the table this season. When asked by Sky Sports if he felt a big summer spend was needed, he replied: "Yes, I think so. I think especially if you see how City and United are spending and working. "I think if we want to aim for the top we should do the same - obviously within the limits of what's possible as well. "I think that the transfer market has gone pretty crazy. Nowadays, you pay £80million for a defender I think - that's crazy figures. "We'll see what's going on and I am sure the board will do what needs to be done." Chelsea are available at 12/1 with bet365 to win the Premier League title next season.
