not sure if this is available in Google Play so this will need to be downloaded from above and installed.

Finally!!

it works great !!! thanks for letting us know about it.

You have to choose a channel from the list, i couldn't find the functionality to type in a custom address.

you also might have to let it buffer for a couple of minutes, but that depends on the channel. i'm using a sgs4g.

there does seem to be some functionality missing from this version, however as it is still in beta i'm sure they can be forgiven.

As previously states there does not seem to be any option to insert an address or channel id manually, also clicking on a sop link in an android browser produces a message that there is no software installed to handle the function...

I don't know enough about android to know if you can tell a browser (dolphin) for example how to handle the request? Or to send the request to the sopcast app.

works fine for me, took me a while to find the channel with the match on tonight :).

If they can provide an channel input window, it'll be perfect.

I was watching the match on my PC, which was oddly 30 seconds behind the Android! As a result I ended up watching it on the phone.

Good resolution, not jerky, Liverpool won!

The images don't do full justice to the quality (think taking stills off video), but they will give a good idea.

I had to input the whole URL, just the channel number wouldn't work for me. Still, it's just copy and paste from the browser, so no problem.
