Live Football Online - News And Games
Where To Watch Live Football Online
FA Cup 5th Round - We've still got 2 non league teams in the draw and plenty of the other games should make for an interesting weekend. No doubt that the highlight
is Sutton Utd hosting Arsenal on Monday night, it's so easy these days to listen to the hype machine and "must watch" games but honestly this is one game where you really don't want to miss it.
Arsenal are going through a genuine bona fidy crisis and the last thing they need right now is to be trying to play their silky smooth style of football on a non league pitch
against a team that have battled their way through to the 5th round. There is huge potential there for one of the biggest upsets in FA Cup history. So much so that even the other cracking fixtures
like Blackburn vs Man Utd, Fulham vs Spurs and Burnley versus non league Lincoln City almost seem kind of secondary. Finally just a quick note that at this time of year the fixtures across multiple tournaments
go a bit crazy so I'm going to take a break for a few weeks and let the dust settle down before passing comment. Enjoy.
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.
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.
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?
