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

Cricket - Root calls for improved display

England captain Joe Root has demanded that the tourists upset the formbook and beat Australia in the third Test in Perth. England have not won at the venue since 1978 and are 2-0 down in the series having lost at Brisbane and Adelaide. The highest total they have made in the first two Tests is 302 and Root knows that the team's batting has to improve if they are to have any chance of retaining the Ashes. The 26-year-old Yorkshireman said: "In the face of adversity, people want to see you put in big performances and prove why you have been chosen to play for England. "If we get that right there is no reason why it can't be 2-1 this time next week." England are 13/8 with bet365 to have a first-innings lead in the third Test while Root is 13/10 to score a fifty in the first innings.

Horse Racing - Henderson has faith in Might Bite

Nicky Henderson does not think Whisper is good enough to get the better of stablemate Might Bite in the King George VI Chase on Boxing Day. Henderson says Might Bite is working well and believes he can taste glory at Kempton Park. He is 11/8 with bet365 to land the mid-winter Grade One highlight while Whisper can be backed at 12/1. Henderson said: "Might Bite is good. He's not a horse who needs a huge amount of work. "Whisper might have to go to the King George, but we know he's not good enough and we know Might Bite is yards and yards and yards in front of him."

Soccer - Battling Burnley please Dyche

Burnley boss Sean Dyche was pleased with the way his side battled to a 1-0 victory against Stoke City on Tuesday. An uneventful match, which was spoiled by the terrible weather at Turf Moor, seemed certain to finish in a stalemate until substitute Ashley Barnes smashed home a late winner for the Clarets. The result lifted Burnley up to fourth in the Premier League table and they are 21/10 with bet365 to beat Brighton in their next match on Saturday with Barnes 12/5 to score at any time. "We weren't quite at the races in the early part of the game but we came more into it in the second half," said Dyche. "The wind was swirling, the rain was all over the place, the pitch was taking a battering, but I'm really pleased with that result."
