Do you watch Premier League games online? Well, we're sorry to be the bearer of bad news

Another wave of illegal streaming sites have been blocked by the FA.

Broadcasting rights are big business and the Premier League are clamping down on copyright infringement.

THE FOOTBALL ASSOCIATION has successfully obtained a court order to ban live football websites from web browsers as it continues the clampdown on illegal streaming.

The Independent are reporting that some of the biggest sites have been placed on a block list with the latest set of bans bringing the number to 128.

It means sites such as LiveTV will remain online but web users will be unable to access them with the blocks being gradually rolled out ahead of the new season.

Sky Sports and BT Sport recently paid a combined £3 billion for the Premier League broadcasting rights for the next twelve months.

It’s the latest measure taken by the governing bodies to crack down on online copyright infringement with illegal streaming believed to cost the television industry close to £10 million per year.
