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 - Emery looks for big performance

Unai Emery has challenged his Arsenal side to show what they are made of when they take on Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday. The Gunners have opened their Premier League season with victories over Newcastle United and Burnley, with the Merseysiders the only other team to have won both of their first two games. That record has given head coach Emery plenty of confidence heading into a major showdown on Saturday evening, but he knows that a top-class performance will be needed to match the Reds. The Spaniard told reporters: "We really are in a very good position, but we have only played two matches in the Premier League. "We know it's only the beginning, but we can be positive and optimistic for the match, knowing that it is going to be difficult - it is a very big challenge and a very big opportunity for us to do something." The Gunners are 18/5 with bet365 to earn a draw on Saturday.

Soccer - Klopp hails Ox character

Head coach Jurgen Klopp is delighted with the news that fit-again midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has extended his contract with Liverpool. The 25-year-old England international missed almost an entire calendar year due to a serious knee ligament injury, but returned to the fold late last term and has now extended his Reds deal to run all the way up to the summer of 2023. And, ahead of a meeting with the player's former club, Arsenal, Klopp is pleased to see another of his squad show his commitment to the Anfield cause. The German told his club's official website: "We all know his story since he came to the club and, yes, there have been disappointments as well as highs, but what has impressed me and everyone is his attitude to dealing with setbacks and his character." Liverpool are 5/2 with bet365 to win the Premier League title this season, while they are 7/1 to retain their Champions League crown.

Soccer - Hasenhuttl makes his point

Ralph Hasenhuttl accepts that his Southampton side need to start picking up points sooner rather than later, beginning at Brighton on Saturday. Defeats to Burnley and Liverpool have left the Saints near the foot of the fledgling Premier League table, a situation which Hasenhuttl would like to rectify as quickly as possible. The Austrian told reporters at his pre-match press conference: "It's about taking points consistently. "In the first two games we haven't, which is not the start we wanted, but we knew the schedule was difficult, with four games against big teams in the first seven games. "We must be focused that it doesn't matter on the game or the opponent, there is always the chance to take something." Last season Southampton won 1-0 at the AMEX Stadium in both the league and the League Cup and they are 17/2 with bet365 to triumph 1-0 again on Saturday.
