While Saturday 3 O’clock Premier League fixtures are shown live all throughout the world, they are not televised live via British broadcasters. Therefore the very country in which these Barclay’s Premier League fixtures take place misses out on viewing them live.
When there is a will, there’s a way however and FirstRow Sports has been the means by which football fans throughout the country can still manage to watch these fixtures through live streams, for the past two years at least.
Now FirstRow Sports is banned in the United Kingdom, and alternatives are therefore being sought for the alternative.
Foreign Satellite Dishes
A great way to still catch Premier League football next season is by installing a foreign satellite dish and system in your home.
International channels such as those belonging to Al Jazeera Sport and SuperSport all show an abundance of Premier League football games and can be viewed from the UK with the right dish and installation.
Sky Sports: Football First
Of course, one may simply have to make do with missing live viewings of Saturday 3 O’clock fixtures and catching up on the game at night. If one is to contemplate bearing the practically unbearable and missing 3 O’clock games, then Sky Sports’ Football First should be the first place to catch up on the missed fixtures.
With one-hour highlights of every Premier League game played on Saturdays, as well as full 90-minute highlights of the Game of the Day, Sky Sports’ Football First is the best means to catch up on missed football on a Saturday. You will have to make sure nobody tells you the score beforehand however.
While FirstRow Sports may have been the most reliable and efficient, there are several other websites that have shown Premier League football in recent seasons. From Myp2p.eu to a range of other sites, there are plenty of alternatives to FirstRow Sports, showing soccer online.
Scour through Twitter to see what streams are available for the game of your choice, or simply Google the game you’re looking to catch.
If you cannot manage to find any live streams online, do not have satellite dish access to foreign sports channels such as Al Jazeera Sport and do not wish to wait until Football First showings to find out the score, then Soccer Saturday is where you can keep up to date with all the latest Premier League scores.
Hosted by Jeff Stelling, Soccer Saturday is shown on SkySports on Saturday’s throughout the season. It starts at 12.00 featuring build-ups for each game and the opinions of former footballers and pundits such as Paul Merson and Phil Thompson.
Match of the Day
BBC One’s Match of the Day has long been a colossal program for Premier League football and the most popular fixture catch-up choice for football fans. The highlights may not be as extensive as Football First’s, however you won’t need to pay Sky subscriptions to view it.
Presented by Gary Linekar and featuring Alan Hansen and Alan Shearer, Match of the Day can also be viewed on BBCiPlayer from the following Tuesday onwards.
