This one is for all football lovers, here is an app that will enable you watch football matches on Android phone easily right from your bedroom, offices and anywhere you are at any point in time. This app will amazingly transform your smartphone into a handheld DSTV device.

You don’t have to pay too much in football viewing centers, neither should you subscribe on your DSTV, Startimes and GoTV decoder just to watch your favourite football team play when you can easily watch soccer games from your handheld Android device. Libre Directo is an app that enables you to stream live sport events directly from your android phone. The good thing about this app is you can watch matches from your desired league be it EPL (English Premier league), Ligue 1, Italian Seria A, Spanish Laliga and others.

How To Make it Work

Step 1

Step 3

Open then select desired sporting event you want to stream.

Note: it doesn’t show only soccer, you can also stream hockey, tennis and other sporting games.

Step 4

An event will contain more than one channel most times, choose channel depending on the video quality, speed and internet connection. ( I’ll recommend you choose channels that streams at 300kb/s – 450kb/s for faster streaming)

Cons of Libre Directo

  1. Needs about 200MB to stream a complete football match.
  2. Drains battery fast.
  3. Needs fast and steady internet connection for efficient streaming.
  4. Commentary in italian.

I must admit, this is the best football streaming app I’ve used on my android device and that’s basically how i exhaust my Glo 3GB data before it expires, try this app and you will be surprised how much money you will save watching soccer in football viewing centres.
