Football Live Streaming

Live streaming of sporting events on the internet, and particularly football matches on gambling websites, is now commonplace and becoming more popular with every passing day. But what exactly is live streaming, how does it work, what use is it and what are its benefits?


What is Live Streaming?                                                             

Put simply, live streaming is the broadcasting of a live event on the internet as opposed to broadcasting across the airwaves as is the case with television. With broadband speeds ever increasing and computer processing speeds getting faster, watching a football match via computer is now on a par with (and often better than) viewing it on television.

How Does Football Live Streaming Work?

The live feed of not just football but any event is sent to the gambling website’s location from where it can be re-sent to any customer who requires the service. Once accessed, the live pictures are sent to the customer who can view the match as they would on television.

What Use Is It?

Many gambling websites provide live streaming for their customers and broadcast thousands of different sporting events over a twelve month period. This means that on any given day there will be a range of events to choose from that are not available to watch on television. While most of the top English Premier League games cannot be broadcast due to television contracts, there is still the opportunity to watch top games from European, South American, African and Asian leagues.

What Are the Benefits of Football Live Streaming?

As mentioned previously, football live streaming covers football games from around the globe and games that are not readily available on television. For example, you can have a small bet on a cup game in Germany and watch the match live to see if your bet comes up. However, it is not necessary to have any money invested in a match as games are free to watch for customers with an account in credit.

Is Football Live Streaming Free to Watch?

Usually yes but this depends on the individual website’s terms and conditions. In general if your account with the company is funded (in credit) you can watch any of their live streaming events which covers not just football but American sports, darts, snooker, tennis, rugby, ice hockey, golf and a host of other sports.

How Do I Get Football Live Streaming?

In order to gain access to football or sport that is being streamed live by a gambling company’s website you must be a registered client with that company. This means signing up and making a deposit to open a new account (you have to have a positive balance in your account to be ale to watch). Some websites stream a lot more football games than others so it pays to do a little research on each of the sites to check how many games they typically broadcast, from which leagues and how often.

Can I Have a Bet While Watching a Football Game Live?

Of course! This is the main reason that gambling websites offer this service to customers. Regardless of which site you join, you will find it is quick and easy to have a bet “in-play” with just a click or two of the mouse.


If you enjoy having a bet on the result of a football game, the first scorer, half-time and full-time result, correct score etc then football live streaming is for you. Bear in mind that English Premier League matches are usually contracted to the big television companies and rarely (if ever) appear on a U.K. based gambling website. But most leagues and cup competitions around the globe are broadcast although you may have to join several gambling sites in order to maximise your chances of watching your chosen football match.
