Live Sports Streaming
Several bookmakers now provide live streaming of sports events for their customers and it's our goal at Bookmakers Live Stream to provide you with a rundown of the best bookies that offer such services.
By using a sportsbook to stream sports events live you can be safe in the knowledge that it is 100% legal as the rights to broadcast the events have been purchased by the bookmakers themselves. This means that a license has been gained, usually through an official broadcast merchant such as 'Perform'. Of course, unlike illegal p2p or browser based streaming, this means you'll be absolutely safe from viruses, malware and intrusive banner advertising that is often the revenue maker for illegal sites.
By using one of the bookmaker links above, you're giving back to the sport itself as all bookies will ask that you fund your account (deposit money) before being able to stream an event live. This encourages them to broadcast sports via their sites and will fuel the need to add more live matches and tournaments in the future.
