Today in Nigeria, most mobile users are embracing the live streaming habits. Apart from high cost of satellite TV, its more portable as you can watch these shows anywhere you might be provided you have access to stable network.

In otherwords, one does not have to be at home before he or she can watch a game or a show, neither do you need electricity before you can enjoy these live events.

Actually, there are thousands of apps developed specifically for live streaming, like Mobdro, Live NetTv etc. But what makes Facebook applications better for streaming live matches and shows is that it is stress free and easy to locate live events.

Also, Facebook live streaming is data friendly in the sense that it does not consume so much data when compared with some other live streaming apps. The reason for less data consumption by Facebook app during streaming is because, the videos are not of High Definition (HD).

Steps For Streaming Live Matches Or Shows On Facebook

• Make sure you are connected to a stable network and have your network turned on.
• Launch the Facebook application.
• Go to top left of the app and locate the search bar.
• Type in the name of the show or match you seek to view and add “LIVE” to it after typing e.g. “LIVERPOOL VS BARCELONA LIVE” and click on go.
A pop-up of the live show will appear and you click on it and enjoy your game or show.

It is just that simple. For a football match make sure you have a minimum of 1giga byte of data. The reason for that amount of data is so as not to be interrupted while viewing as a result of running short of data. But surely, 500giga byte will do for a football game.
