Lumia 920 - Streamiing live football?

 

How do you watch it on your phone? The usual desktop sites I use need flash. :smileysad:

 

Help please. Thanks.

Probably impossible. Can't speak for other countries but in UK BBC iplayer, ITV player, 4OD, Catch up TV, myPlayer etc, etc do not work on Windows phones.

So as a football fan, I would be better with another phone...a real shame!

This is only a temporarily situation as Adobe no longer develops Flash for any device. So Android devices after JB will not support Flash either, and neither will the latest iphone. 

 

The real shame here is actually the stations not taking the trouble to update their systems to html 5 yet. Until they do so, everyone will need to use old obsolete equipment to watch their favourite programmes.

Hardly old and obsolete. The phone I watch BBC programmes I've missed was released 6 months after the Lumia 800 so if it's old and obsolete what does that make the 800?

There's a fair amount of mileage in JB and even ICS so I suppose the stations think they've got time in hand. Presumably they'll have to deal with it whe JB and ICS devices do become obsolete.

For those of you who still think that it is Nokia or Microsoft refusing to support Flash, the fact of the matter is Adobe themselves have abandoned Flash and no longer develop it for any new platforms. In a few months time, a Key Lime Pie will be released. As soon as that happens, JB and ICS are effectively obsolete. 

 

"On November 9, 2011, Adobe announced that it will no longer develop Flash for Mobile Platforms and is planning on developing new products with more open technologies and standards like HTML5." For full article see link below.

 

SO! If you still have an issue, please bring it to the attention of Adobe and see if you can convince them to change their mind. There is nothing anyone else, Nokia and Microsoft included can do about it.

OK, I see. So it's just a waiting game?

Precisely. As new phones with new operating systems are released, none of them will have Flash support which should in time encourage all the sites to update to html 5 or be left behind.
