That Russian site (http://livetv.sx/en/) almost always has an Ace Stream link for Ajax games. I watch the games full screen on a 22" monitor -- resolution is really good -- especially when the link is for an HD telecast.

Cool, thanks. Do they broadcast the streams in Dutch? Last time I checked ace stream was a mess, hopefully they improved it over the past couple of years...

I just looked at the Fox Sports NL website -- they said you have to register through your TV provider -- so how do you use it without a TV provider -- seems like you can't. Or, they also talk about a Sports Go subscription -- is that instead of a TV provider? It wasn't all that clear.

Usually the streams are in Spanish and Russian -- there are usually several to choose from -- some being better than others. Ace Stream has gotten a lot better in the last couple of years -- very rarely tears up or stops to buffer -- you can always switch to a different stream if the one you are watching goes bad. I very rarely have to do that.

Sky are part of Fox and we have a Fox soccer channel in the US. they don't carry Dutch league matches. Last season we had NGSN, a Dutch based internet company (they sponsored a Jupiter league team), that carried the Sky feeds got, all the matches as well as a bunch of other leagues. They were forced to close down in April and never said why. I don't, know if they will come back. The price was very good and they archived the feeds.

@rjf1 exactly, that's how it *used* to work: Fox Sports GO was an Internet-only subscription. But it seems like they won't be offering it this season, although the following line still shows on the page:

Wil je direct live toegang en liever alleen FOX Sports GO? Dat kan ook. (Do you want direct access and prefer only GO? That's also possible.)

...but the option doesn't exist when you try to sign up.

@orange Yeah, I'm keeping an eye on NGSN too. Their site says "relaunching this summer", but it wouldn't be the first vapourware site if they never come back up...

But NGSN was only available in the US.

Strange message on Fox Sports about their streaming service. Basically they're saying their servers aren't up to demand, so they aren't allowing new subscriptions. No idea where this leaves me, since I'm not a new subscriber, but I can't see any way to extend my account. You would think if Fox has "too many customers" they'd buy some more server capacity, but maybe they're happy for "illegal" (P2P/flash) viewing to take up some of the load. After the hassles trying to find a good stream on Wednesday (I saw a total of about 20 minutes, I reckon) I'm not optimistic about getting good access to games this season...

Momenteel krijgen we geregeld vragen over de beschikbaarheid van FOX Sports GO. Het afgelopen jaar hebben we een grote groei gerealiseerd in het aantal FOX Sports GO-abonnees. Dit in combinatie met het eveneens sterk stijgende online en mobiel kijkgedrag naar FOX Sports via de apps van de tv-aanbieders (GO is standaard onderdeel van het FOX Sports tv-abonnement) zet het streaming platform onder druk. We hebben deze zomer hard gewerkt aan onderhoud van ons platform.

Nu de Eredivisie weer van start gaat kunnen we ons platform de komende weken serieus testen. Om de kwaliteit van de live stream te kunnen blijven waarborgen voor de huidige tienduizenden FOX Sports GO gebruikers kunnen we tijdens de testfase geen nieuwe gebruikers toelaten. Onze excuses voor eventueel ongemak, maar we werken hard aan onze online dienstverlening.

We have worked hard this summer maintenance of our platform.

Now start the Premier League again will we be able in the coming weeks seriously test our platform. In order to continue to guarantee the quality of the live stream for the current FOX Sports GO tens of thousands of users, we can not allow new users during the testing phase. We apologize for any inconvenience, but we are working hard on our online services.

Tom - that's a bummer. We have Fox Sports to Go here in the US but they don't carry the Dutch league games. I don't think they have the same server problem as over in Europe. They don't have much football on it these days since they were outbid for the EPL games by NBC Sports. I'm still waiting to see if any one picks up the Dutch matches for the US. The Spanish channel Univision Desportes is showing the Utrecht/PSV match but that's the only one.

Ah well. It can't be as bad as the late 90s/early 2000s when the cable providers bought up rights and didn't broadcast, and there was no flash streaming!
