    Has anyone found a way to watch live games on your phone?
    Plenty of sites offer this feature, but so far anything I've found requires flash, which apparently you can't have in Android (?? - correct me if I'm wrong).
    I want to be able to watch games while at my desk at work, but the good sites are blocked by the company filters, so my phone is my only hope!

    Thanks!

    I'm in Canada, but was born in England and thus 'rooting' accordingly.

    I used Yamgo to watch the World cup at work. It's good but has 2 annoying things:-

    1. It displays the screen in 4:3 ratio, even though the broadcast is widescreen, so making things look a bit squashed.
    2. It's not quite live. A colleague was also watching the match on ITV.com and Yamgo's feed was about 2 minutes behind. Very annoying knowing when a goal is coming up!

    Other than that, it's not too bad.

    Sounds ok as long as no-one else near is listening or watching the match to spoil it for you.

    How much mb usage does a full match use up??

    Since you said you're in Canada, Rogers is offering the ability to watch FIFA on your phone (for $5/month). You can read up about it on their website and I'm assuming that it works for the X10.......as they use a pic of it in their ad. ;) Hope this helps!

    Because of the issues it mentioned, mainly the fact that other people in the office were telling me what had happened about 2 minutes before I saw it, I didn't watch the whole game, but looking at my account, it seemed to use about 20Mb every 10 minutes.

    Fortunately I'm on an unlimited internet use contract, so it's not a problem for me :D

    Yup... works on the Xperia. Had to switch from the Nexus One to the X10 just to be able to watch it. So stupid cause Rogers supports Nexus One. ah well.... as long as I get to watch it I guess

    Yeah, got that Rogers thing working.
    I tried it once and it didn't, and I assumed it was due to the flash thing, but it works now.
    They might have been having site issues earlier....dunno...
