Pluses and minusesto top

Concluding our review of bookmakers which offer live streaming of sporting events we decided to prepare all pluses and minuses of such offerings.

1)Access to the majority of sporting events beginning with football, basketball, tennis, volleyball, hockey and finishing with darts, snooker, cricket.
2)Possibility of placing bets observing the chosen match without limits.
3)Paradoxically but the necessity to place money on the accounts is also a plus since it limits access of non-interested in sports betting players who overcrowd the system which affects the quality of transmission.


1)To be able to watch a match broadcast you have to open an account on the bookmaker site and sometimes have available funds on it.
2)It is hard to view a match online on a mobile phone not using the 3G or 4G networks.
3)More often bookmakers block the possibility of sporting events viewing which take place in clients’ country which means that we cannot watch live for instance matches of Bundesliga or handball. This happens because only 1-2 channels can have an exclusive right for transmission.
