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 - Klopp hails Alisson's arrival

Head coach Jurgen Klopp expects Alisson, who has become the most expensive goalkeeper in world football, to improve in the future with Liverpool. The 25-year-old Brazil international has joined the Reds from Roma on a six-year contract, with a fee of £66.8million reported to be involved in sealing the deal. And Klopp says the massive price the Merseysiders have had to pay is not a major concern, especially as he is confident that the South American will mature in the coming years. He told the club's official website: "At one point in the last few weeks it came up, the opportunity to sign one of the world's best goalkeepers - then it's not a long thought, to be honest. "We got him here because of his existing strengths, which is in all goalkeeper departments the highest level. "But of course he still has to adapt and age-wise he can improve, the best years are coming in the goalkeeper's life, so it's all good." The Reds can be backed at 9/2 with bet365 to win the league title for the first time since 1990.

Formula 1 - Bottas aims to deliver more

Valtteri Bottas is confident that there are better performances to come from him in the future, having signed a new contract with Mercedes. The 28-year-old Finn has signed up for the 2019 Formula 1 season, with an option in place to cover the following 12 months. And Bottas, who is currently in his second season with Mercedes and who lies in fifth place in the drivers' standings, is happy to have got his immediate future sorted as he bids to get his season back on track at the German Grand Prix. He told his team's official website: "This year, with a full winter of preparation, I have been able to make a good step forward and I believe that there is still more to come. "We have not been so lucky in the races this year, but the team knows how I am performing and this is a great sign of confidence in me and my driving." Bottas is available at 13/2 with bet365 to win the German Grand Prix this weekend.

Cricket - Bayliss hints at Rashid return

Head coach Trevor Bayliss has hinted that leg-spinner Adil Rashid could be handed a surprise recall for the first Test match between England and India. The 30-year-old opted to quit red-ball cricket earlier this year to focus on the shorter forms of the game, having previously taken 38 wickets in ten Test match appearances. However, he impressed in the recent one-day and T20 internationals against India and is now in line for a possible call-up for the first Test of five, which gets under way at Edgbaston on Wednesday August 1st. Bayliss told reporters: "This year is probably the best we've seen him bowl. "He's bowled well in one-day cricket over the last few years, but his control and his consistency this year has been top-class and probably the best I've seen him bowl since I've been here." England are 20/21 with bet365 to win the first Test against India, with the draw priced at 3/1.
