Finding the TV channel that is providing live coverage of your teams matches has never been easy and the situation has been worsened with a saturation of sports channels which include ESPN, Sky Sports, BT Sport and Freeview channels.
The paper TV Guide is an unsatisfactory relic these days but there are football apps out there that have taken its place and in fact offer a better solution altogether.
So this football season make sure you enjoy your pick of 116 live matches on Sky Sports and 38 live Premier League matches on BT Sport.
Here we are going to take a look at a free football app that provides TV listings for all of the Premier League games and many other football tournaments as well.
The app is named Where’s the Match and you can download the wheresthematch.com app here for Apple iPhones, iPads and the iPod Touch, as long as they are running on iOS 5.0 or later.
You can also visit the company’s website to follow football on TV via your PC or Mac.
As the screenshots in this review show, the design of the app is beautifully laid out and there is nothing too complicated to get to grips with.
I often say that the best apps are those that you can pick up and use straight away and this app ticks those boxes.
At the top of each page you will see the familiar menu icon and at the bottom there are icons that will deliver you to the teams, competitions and TV channel pages.
From these pages you can search in a variety of ways for the games you want to watch and see which TV or satellite channel is covering the game live.
The best part however is that you can select your favourite football teams and this then allows you to see just those matches in an online calendar. This can be done by selecting either a single day, a week or a month.
In addition to this you are able set up email reminders to ensure you don’t miss a Barclay’s Premier League match. The app can send out these notification from 1 to 7 days prior to kick off.
Each TV listing also displays a link to where you can stream a football game directly on your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch, so you no longer need to be at home to watch the best football action of the season.
The Where’s the Match app has all of the TV listing for the Champions League, FA Cup, Capital One Cup and Europa League as well as the Premier League so this app truly is the perfect choice for those who are football fanatics.
However, if your game is the Rugby Union, Rugby League or Cricket then this smartphone app covers those too making Where’s the Match a central hub for finding all live sports on TV.
