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 - Coach seeks Saints focus

Head coach Ralph Hasenhuttl has told his Southampton squad to focus on the job of ensuring Premier League survival, following their exit from the FA Cup. The Saints lost 5-3 on penalties in a third-round replay against Derby County on Wednesday evening, with the top-flight outfit letting slip a two-goal lead during the game, just as they had done in the original tie in the East Midlands. That left Hasenhuttl frustrated that his team had been unable to see the game out, while also warning that focus and concentration will need to be much improved on Saturday, when Everton are the visitors to St Mary's. He told the Daily Echo: "We have to concentrate on the Premier League now. "We have to take time to recover very well, because on Saturday we have an important game here at home against Everton. We should be more concentrated in this game than we were here." Southampton are just one point clear of the relegation places, having moved out of the bottom three thanks to a fine 2-1 win at Leicester City last time out, with the Saints available at 8/1with bet365 to be relegated this season.

Cricket - Stone setback hurts Root

Skipper Joe Root is 'gutted' that paceman Olly Stone has been forced out of the England tour of the West Indies because of a stress fracture in his lower back. The 25-year-old Warwickshire fast bowler made his international debut on the recent tour of Sri Lanka, featuring in four one-day internationals, but was unable to force his way into the Test side. He had hoped to make a further impression in the Caribbean, but will now head home and could face a significant spell on the sidelines. Root told reporters at the completion of a warm-up match against a CWI President's XI: "I'm gutted for him, he worked extremely hard to get into this squad. "He did some really good work in Sri Lanka, pushed his case really hard and was doing the same here. "It's a massive blow for him personally and for us as a team too, but I'm sure we'll see plenty more of him in the future." England are 1/5 with bet365 to win the Test series against the West Indies.

Snooker - Selby back in the groove

Mark Selby was pleased to register a win at a Triple Crown event, having suffered early exits in all three tournaments last year. The three-time world champion, three-time Masters champion and two-time UK Championship winner crashed out of all three tournaments at the first stage last season, leaving him determined to put things right in 2019. And Selby, 5/1 with bet365 to win the tournament, made a decent start to his Masters campaign as he saw off Stephen Maguire 6-2 to set up a quarter-final clash with Judd Trump. Afterwards he told World Snooker: "In the last few big competitions over the last year or 18 months I've struggled and not really produced. "I've put too much pressure on myself in the past, especially in the three majors and it's shown in the way I've performed sometimes. So it was nice to perform like that and get the win."
