Watching Football Online - a Live Streaming Guide

How to watch football live online - anytime, anywhere.

If you’re a football fan with a computer and broadband Internet access, you probably already use the World Wide Web to access football information. Fans worldwide have come to rely on the Internet for results, video highlights and even live streams. Thanks to the Net, the popularity of the beautiful game has grown to new levels, and the 2010 World Cup is likely to push growth even further. Millions of fans who can’t be in South Africa will want to use their computers to see the action. Welcome to the world of online football streaming.

Real football fans will enjoy live football action any way they can get it. But there is a lot of football out there. If you have favorite teams in several leagues, as many of us do, your challenge will be to find quality sources for your daily live football fix. You really only have a few options:

A) Go to the stadium and watch your game live
B) Watch your football game live on TV in the comfort of home
C) Watch live soccer at your local pub
D) Or fire up your computer and watch your football match live online

Live Football StreamingOption A will depend on your location and budget. Option B may be best, but it’s only good if you can get the games you want through your cable or satellite service or over the air. Option C can be good too, especially for big occasions like the “Clasico,” World Cup matches, or Champions League. And yet, although the pub atmosphere has its appeal, what you typically won’t get there is all the information happening around, within and beyond your game; the scores for other matches, the table and player stats, and late breaking news.

Option D, on the other hand, can provide you with the best features of the other options, with the possible exception of your favorite pint hand-drawn from a cask in the cellar.

With a laptop and a decent Internet connection you can watch online football almost anywhere. Log in and enjoy your game in the solitude of home, or settle into a big comfy chair and sip a latte with your game at Starbucks. Travelling? Sign on at the airport and watch your game while you wait, and wait. Visiting the wife’s parents? Tap into their wireless, turn on your game and tune out mother-in-law. The benefits of online streaming football are clearly tremendous.

So whether you are a casual supporter or a hardcore footy fan, you’ll be relieved to know that if your game is broadcast on TV it’s probably also available on a live football streaming website. In short, if you can access the Internet you can probably access your game.

The significant rise in popularity of football in technologically advanced regions like Asia and North America has fueled the online demand and proliferation of live football streaming. This has been further supported by huge advancements in web technology, video streaming technology and the expansion and penetration of social networks into the footballing community. Football TV rights holders can no longer ignore the massive football audience which is available online.

The potential for new revenue generation from football rights sales is tremendous, as this is now a legitimate segment for football marketing and the one with most growth potential in the next decade.

The Web has become the perfect open platform to deliver high quality live football streaming to the football community. High-speed broadband services, affordable rates and a high percentage of Internet penetration offer optimal circumstances for a high quality interactive experience. To enhance the live football experience, football streaming is often supplemented with game and player stats, text and live audio commentary in multiple languages, chat forums, replays and much more, thus making streaming a rich immersive experience. Even foreign language streams can be enjoyable as long as the streaming quality is good. Certainly a good commentator enhances the game, but if you find yourself watching a Champions League match in Czech or a La Liga game in Persian your entertainment value may still be high. Football fans are tolerant and viewing football in a foreign language is better than not viewing football at all.

In the past few years, we have seen large sports broadcasters like ESPN, Univision, CBC, FOX, Sky Sports, BBC, ITV and others make significant strides and large investments into the delivery of online football. The acquisition of new broadband TV sports rights and investment into a broadband delivery platforms are contributing to the growth of a wide variety of legal live football streams. The quality, availability and reliability of legal, online football streaming can only improve as the big broadcasters find new ways to compete with the illegal, free peer-to-peer (p2p) football streaming sites.

Today, football lovers can view almost any single live football stream online. Watching a football match live on the Internet is no longer “Plan B” for many football fans; it is now their “Plan A.” So, if you are part of this cable-less, cord-less generation, sit back and have a read through the various options on how to watch live football on the Internet in your country. We hope to help you answer the question: How can I Watch Live Football Streams?
