    It did always confuse me this, how a football match (or other sporting event) could be considered a copyrighted work. It isn't 'art', it is live and dynamic.

    Sky in pubs is something like 5/6k a year. I'm not surprised that people use the other ways around it!

    Are there dodgy sites that stream matches? A bar I use in Portugal for its free wifi, often has a laptop connected to the tv screen.

    There are LOADS of sites!

    Because the Premier League is watched around the world, you can find a feed of practically EVERY game. I may have watched a few QPR matches, that way, this season.....although it hasn't made good viewing!!!

    Iraqgoals used to be a good one, and they generally have english commentators and summarisers....which is always good for a "Where are they now" spot!

    Thanks. I don't want to watch it, I hate football and it drives me mad that every bar has 24 hour football at max volume.

    So why the need to comment on a thread that holds no interest for you?

    I've never understood that..... There are 70,000+ threads, and you come to one that you have no interest in???

    Anyway, you can blame SKY for that....not football in general.

    Back in the olden times, ALL games started at 3pm on a saturday... Match of the Day had 1 main game and 2 for highlights.....and football was much better for it..... IMO!!!

    On a slightly different note. How easy is it to get German TV in the UK via satellite?

    The thread interests me, as does the technology. I just didn't want anyone thinking I wanted to know where to find these sites. However, if cricket and swimming is available, I might take a look. Sorry if I upset you?
