    Hi, I have been told that you can stream live football straight to your computer from this site FREE Football Streaming info : Watch live football on your pc, free football streams! the original link was Footballtube.org: Footballtube.org for the latest EURO 2008 Goals, videos, and highlights . What I would like to know, before I download the software, is - is this legal and is it as straightforward as it sounds on the site?

    I am very wary about installing unknown software on my computer and being able to watch Premier league games without paying seems a little too good to be true.

    Any advice or previous experience of this would be much appreciated.

    Mike

    HI Mike I have used this site previously.

    Firstly legality wise, I believe it not to be legal in this country, somehting to do with rights about 3pm kick offs coupled with Saturdays. However the chances of getting in to trouble are remote.

    Secondly the big issue I had was the quality. the quality was bad, chinese commentators etc.

    However to see games that you were desperate to see it worked well.

    But sadly, being a Palace fan there is not a lot of call for us on TV.

    Hope this helps

    not 100% if its transmitted real time then it can be ,but if its delayed by 2secs its not ,hence why a lot of stuff you can see on iplayer is free from copyright after its shown,hence why you can downloadepisodes etc for free from sky or bbc,hence why had a good idea if pubs have to pay high prices for sky why not set up a time delay of 3 secs and feed it down to the pub ,then its free to watch and copyright!:thumb:

    Have watched footie over the net before (iraqifootballwebsite) and found it a bit unsatisfactory and have preferred watching it through eurosport on sky,but then again I have taken up the introductory free offer from Tottenhamhotspur tv .com , and found that i was looking at a black screen , when i had hoped to see the 5 goals we had put past doncaster , when I was motorhoming in N ireland.:Laughing:

    Forget the legality of it, just think about Murdock's morality law.
    You can stream live footy to your machine very easily. Problem wit it is that you will always be behind the current state of play, maybe a minute or so but it makes a difference.

    I just put Sopcastocx into my search engine and it came back with some very 'weird' searches, nothing about football but plenty of 'dont you look at that rubbish' - from the wife!!

    Does this give access to football and if so how do I do it please?

    hI mIKE

    just type in sopcast. Alternatively go to you football club forum and ask if anybody is watching the match via their computer.Guarantee that you will be told where you can get it.
