    This looks like a very promising app for football/soccer fans

    Watch highlights, full replays, analysis and documentaries on your Apple TV.

    Browse your favorite soccer related subreddits on your TV:
    • /r/soccer
    • /r/footballhighlights
    • /r/footballdocumentaries
    • /r/soccergifs

    Hopefully the dev will add support for /r/soccerstreams then you'll be able to watch live matches on your ATV

    Caveat - I'm at work currently, just seen this on twitter so haven't had chance to install it yet!

    Do you think Apple would allow an app with that live stream feature? Or is it technical limitations?

    There's plenty of examples on the iOS store, so I don't see why not?

    My understanding is that it's not exactly legal to stream those feeds. Is that not accurate?

    We reviewed the App a little while ago. From what I have been told there were initial plans to add streams but they haven't as yet in fear the App would get pulled from the store (and rightfully so).

    You're 100% correct, it's not legal, but I suppose the argument would be that the app is providing access to that Reddit page, and isn't responsible for the content? Like Live Media Player, is just streaming app but can be used for watching games, as can Plex with the correct plugins....

    I'm grasping at straws here

    Couldn't they create one that could be sideloaded?

    Indeed, it was your tweet/review that alerted me to it

    I was reading the Reddit from the dev yesterday, where they mentioned that it was sort of in the works. Seems like it's worth a try to me, the worst that happens is that the new version is rejected? Lets be honest, it's already breaking copyright rules by even showing highlights and replays, so may as well go the whole hog and bring us what we really want ;)
