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

Golf - Woods happy with improving form

Tiger Woods claims his final round 69 at the Players Championship shows his game is coming together for an assault on the Masters at Augusta National next month. The 43-year-old 14-time major winner returned from a week off because of a neck problem and got through four rounds at TPC Sawgrass, where he finished in joint-30th position despite his impressive finish. Woods will enjoy another break this week and then make a first appearance in the World Golf Championship Dell Technologies World Match Play since 2013, before looking to bid for a fifth Masters title, which he is 12/1 with bet365 to achieve. When asked about where his game is at the moment, he said: "It's right on track. I feel like I'm able to start shaping the golf ball both ways, which I'm going to need there. Just need a few more putts go in, but that's about it."

Formula 1 - Hamilton expecting Ferrari to hit back

Ferrari will bounce back quickly from their disappointing start to the new 2019 Formula 1 campaign, according to Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton. Hamilton went into the season-opening Australian Grand Prix expecting the Scuderia to be the team to beat this year after they had topped the timesheets throughout pre-season testing. However, the reigning drivers' champion was at a loss to explain their no-show in Melbourne as Sebastian Vettel and Charles Leclerc could only finish in fourth and fifth place respectively. Hamilton, who finished second behind Silver Arrows' team-mate Valtteri Bottas at Albert Park, is refusing to believe that Ferrari will be down for long. Looking ahead to the Bahrain GP on 31st March, which the five-time world champion is 13/8 to win with bet365, Hamilton said: "I'm sure they'll come back strong in the next races so we've got to stay on our toes."

Soccer - Hudson-Odoi revels in 'dream' call-up

Chelsea forward Callum Hudson-Odoi has said his first call-up to the England squad is a "dream" and he is vowing to make an impact in Gareth Southgate's side. The 18-year-old forward only received his first Under-21 call-up last week, but he has now been elevated into the senior squad after the withdrawals of Luke Shaw, John Stones, Fabian Delph and Ruben Loftus-Cheek. Hudson-Odoi has scored five goals in 19 appearances for Chelsea this term, despite not yet starting a Premier League game, but he thought Under-21 boss Aidy Boothroyd was joking when he told him that he would be joining Southgate's squad for the Euro 2020 qualifiers against Czech Republic and Montenegro. Hudson-Odoi said: "I was delighted. It's a dream come true. Now I've got to work hard, enjoy every moment and keep working to just hopefully make an impact when I get the opportunity." England are 2/7 with bet365 to get their qualification campaign under way with a win against the Czech Republic at Wembley on Friday.
