Streaming live sporting events is one of the top priorities on mobile devices for sports fans and sports bettors alike. Going hand in hand with that priority is the priority to avoid exceeding data limits with their mobile carriers while streaming those sporting events. That is why it is important to find opportunities to stream live sports without your data being impacted, something that Telstra is making possible for its customers with an update to their live streaming app.
Sports betting is great, but is made even better when you are able to sit down and watch the game that you have action on. While European bookmakers have realized this long ago and made the necessary steps to accommodate their players, bookmakers in other countries are working to do the same, including Australian sportsbooks William Hill and SportsBet, who are adding free live streaming of select sporting events to their respective apps.
William Hill live streams hundreds of sporting events each week including NBA games, as well as prominent soccer leagues such as La Liga in Spain. Given how popular those leagues are and how heavily they are wagered on, it is shrewd of William Hill to give those who choose them for their mobile sports betting the chance to watch those events live without having to leave their app. If you are a horse racing fan you can now watch racing from every racetrack in New South Wales and Victoria/Melbourne from your Windows Phone, iOS or Android device at no charge.
Cable companies continue to raise their subscription fees due to things like increasing rights fees for live sports, which is prompting many former customers to cut the cord and migrate to services like Netflix and Hulu for their entertainment. Those cord cutters have plenty of options for watching sports as well, as live streaming options don't always require a cable subscription, but grant cord cutters the ability to watch a number of interesting games, including games worth following for those engaged in mobile sports betting.
