    Okay, I have an S3 and I used to watch Football Matches on it with Flash on Browser, since JellyBean I have tried watching Football but I can't, today when I was watching a YouTube video it said Jelly Bean has no Flash. And that's when I realised why I couldn't watch. Is it still possible to watch football?

    I saw on some forums and threads saying Adobe has given up on it and flash is dying PCs will lose flash. What's going on??

    It also says people are using HTML5, whats that?

    Flash is not available from the Play store for Jelly Bean. Adobe no longer supports flash on mobile devices. But you can still download and install the flash .apk package from Adobe's website. You'll also need to install one of the flash-capable browsers like Firefox or Boat. The stock JB browser does not run flash.

    As for what is HTML5...Google or Wikipedia is your friend.

    Is that Sky Sports Online? That uses Silverlight doesn't it? There's a Sky Go app for watching Sky on your phone.

    YouTube has an app for Android.

    I use a website not Sky Sports.
    I know there is duhh.. I said I was watching a review in which the guy said Jelly Bean does not have Flash. I tried to put this in simple words hope you understand.

    OK you you'll need to do what CrashDamage has suggested. Use Firefox or Boat browser, and get the Flash APK from Adobe's website.

    It's not one of those illegal streaming sites is it that shows football matches? - if it's not Sky, BBC or ITV?

    No, how to find out if it's illegal or legal? And I don't think it's illegal, a semi-professional footballer told me about this
