SopCast fixes Jelly Bean sound issue and adds recording
TV isn't global. If you're traveling abroad and you want to see the game of your favourite team, you can zap through all the channels without luck. If you try to catch a stream from the official supplier, it probably refuses to play in other countries. For example, eredivisielive.nl sells streams for all the dutch football matches, but only in The Netherlands. If you try to watch Ajax play from anywhere else the site will bluntly tell you that its streams are not for sale outside the country.
That's where the Android version of SopCast comes to the rescue. It uses BitTorrent-like technology to send live sports and other video to your phone or tablet. If you're traveling in countries that don't care about your favourite sport SopCast is often the only way to see your team play.
SopCast used to be silent on Jelly Bean, but not anymore. The update to version 0.9.0 fixed the missing sound problem.
The new SopCast can record video too, so you can watch the streamed stuff later. That could be useful when your team is playing a dozen or so time zones away.
If you don't have time to watch the full match, GoalTV by Frezya Mobile plays the highlights.
