Watch Live TV on your PSP

by

Locationfree

I wanted a PSP (PlayStation Portable) before and after reading a press release from Sony I now want one even more (shame I’m a bit skint). Sony announced today that the PSP firmware version 2.5 includes Locationfree application support .

Locationfree has been around for a while now (though hasn’t really taken off that much in the UK yet) and allows you to control, listen to and watch your media collection on a variety of devices.

In the past I’ve found Locationfree a bit limiting to which devices it could be used with but with support for the PSP that is certainly about to change.


The system looks a breeze to setup with your PSP communicating wirelessly with the Locationfree base station (LF-PK1). In it’s simplest form you could be watching the football (or soccer to our friends across the pond) and realise you’ve had one tinnie too many and need to go to the little boys room. With this setup you can take the PSP with continue watching the game (very carefully).

Another cool feature is the ability to connect the base station up to your Internet connection (via cable or Wi-Fi), this then allows you to connect from anywhere with a net connection. With Wi-Fi becoming more and more common place (it’s in some McDonald’s now) you’ll be able to watch your favourite shows transmitted from your own house just about anywhere. If you’re out and about travelling on business you no longer need to watch the limited movie collection in the hotel, you can now call home ask the other half to put a DVD on and you can watch it together (admittedly 100s of miles apart which isn’t always a bad thing).

You can find out more about Locationfree on this official Sony mini site and about the latest PSP firmware update here

Well, I was just wondering how good the range on this device is. How far from it can you be while still staying within range?

Nowadays, due to the improvements of technology and the development of the Internet everyone can watch live football from a comfortable seat at home, and all this without paying expensive cable or satellite fees.

Now you can watch premiership games, champions league soccer, cup matches live, al broadcasted on the Internet, sometimes free and sometimes after paying a small fee. You can enjoy many quality football matches easier then ever. And don’t think that you have to buy some extra hardware or anything because all you need is an Internet connection, but it has to be a broadband connection if you want the live football stream to have a high quality.

How can you do this? Almost every soccer match that is taking place somewhere in the world is broadcasted through a live football stream that you can access from anywhere and furthermore most of the matches come with an English commentary.

If your Internet connection’s speed is high enough then the live transmission of the game will be uniinterupted, but this and the quality depends on how busy the server is.

There are many websites that are broadcasting live soccer streams and most of these provide high-quality streams and they have more links to choose from because only one would make the line too busy.

You also need a player that supports live streaming ( http://www.footy-live.com ) if you wish to watch live football games. The most common players are RealPlayer, MediaPlayer and WinAmp. The websites that provide soccer streams have a list with all the games taking place at the moment and all you need to do is click on the game and the player will open and you can watch it. As simple as that!

So whenever there’s a major football event you know that it’s certainly broadcasted somewhere on the Internet and you can watch everything and you only pay a few dollars!
