      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Good as a last resort for a 'must-watch' game!!

      Being something of a football fan, and wanting to follow my team I found subscription to Sky is great, as they have coverage of most games - however, they do not show them all live and sometimes it is not possible to wait for Match of the Day or other highlights.

      We subscribed to ESPN but I did not get on very well with the channel - finding it overpriced and not good-value-for-money (it cost us £9 a month - because we already have Sky Sports - but show on average one game a week. We cancelled this after the first month).

      I then stumbled across this site, which stream not only football games, but in fact most games of most sports worldwide.

      To get started, you need to enter the website by typing in www.p2p4u.net/, and then choose from the following categories:

      -Football
      -Basketball
      -Hockey
      -Baseball
      -Motorsport
      -Boxing/WWE/UFC
      -Other

      I have only ever used this to watch football games as and when they are not on the TV and I cannot watch them elsewhere (and am free to watch them online). To do this, I would find and select the game I wish to watch (they are separated using flags so that they can be found by country or league, which is helpful especially on a Saturday and Sunday when there may be lots of games being played) and then click on it.

      This then 'opens up' and shows the number of links available, and upon clicking them, the stream becomes available.

      What I will say, is that while it is free and available - there are many limitations!! It does not always work, so I do not rely on it. The links do lose connection now and then so need to be refreshed or changed and this can be infuriating if you are really into a game.

      Some links may be commentating in a foreign language, and are usually about a minute or two behind real-time and although the screen usually can be made bigger/full-size, it will become blurry and sometimes the connection will break, so I often find myself watching on the smaller screen if and when I do use it.

      I am not sure whether the high profile games with boxing are shown but there are highlights and replays, along with links to movies, videos, sports news and high scores (as I have not used these so cannot comment on how good these links are).

      Prior to watching there are adverts which take over the screen and usually you need to wait until they have been on for a certain period of time before it clears so the screen/game can be seen clearly, but there is a timer which counts down so that you know exactly how much longer you need to wait for and sometimes an option to click 'close now' appears meaning you can speed things. Whilst watching, ads will also run along the bottom of the screen, but it they interfere I just click on the 'x' in the corner which removes it (until the next one!) but as they do not interfere too much I don't find that these are a problem.
