If you are a sports fan than you probably want to watch all the games live and since you cannot do this on your television Wiziwig Forum is here to help you do it online. Covering all the major sports like football, soccer, baseball, hockey, basketball, cricket, and MMA as well as the smaller sports like bowling or volleyball Wiziwig is the ultimate destination for everyone who wants to watch sports online. Wiziwig is run on a community concept where people come together to share links and streams with each other so that everyone has access to the specific sporting event(s) that they want to watch. There are literally thousands of people taking part in this sharing community and it allows people who normally would not have access to live sporting events to be able to watch them. There are many people who use the forum; people without cable, people who live in a country outside of the sport they want to watch, soldiers who are overseas, among many others who want to catch a game and have no other option.
When people first begin to watch live sports online one of their first questions is how this is possible. While there is an advanced technological answer we will answer it in a more simple form. There are 3 major ways you can get access to live sports through the internet. One way is through P2P applications. P2P stands for peer-to-peer and these applications directly connect people’s computers with each other. There is someone out there in the world who has the application installed and is streaming a sporting event and then there is you who is there using the same application and accessing their stream. This method completely bypasses the internet and is the most reliable method for streaming and watching sports. The most popular P2P application nowadays is Streamtorrent which is a free app that the majority of sports streamers use to broadcast their streams.
The second method is through user based video sites such as a Justin.tv or uStream.tv. These sites are internet based and they allow people to stream events onto their site which people can than go and search for and watch. The problem with this method is that a lot of sites receive takedown requests. This is when a league will contact them and ask them to take down a stream because the streamer does not have the authority to broadcast the stream. The sites must comply with this request and the stream consequently goes offline leaving you in the dark. Because the first method of using P2P apps is not internet based it does not have to deal with takedown requests.
The third method is by finding streams online that the sports leagues are broadcasting themselves on their own sites. This is a very reliable method and the picture is always in high definition, but the problem with this method is the major lack of variety. If there are 13 football games playing on a day you may only get access to 1 of them. That 1 stream will be of high quality but that is all you’ll get access to.
So how does Wiziwig forum come into play? Wiziwig is a collection of people who pool together their resources to create a very comprehensive listing of when, where, and how to watch live sports online. Some people that are members of the community will be streaming the games themselves. Other people will scour the internet to find live streams and share those links with people on the Wiziwig Forum. And some people will test the streams to inform everyone whether the streams are working and what the quality of them are. The thinking is that if you have a large group of people and everyone does a little piece that collectively you will get a great consolidated effort that is comprehensive and lets sports fans have their pick of what they want to watch online. If you are a sports fan and you want to watch sports online for free than Wiziwig should be your first stop in trying to find a live stream.
