Korean baseball information help
« on: June 15, 2011, 02:09:52 pm »
Hi guys -

Not sure of this is the right section, but anyway.....

I've been living here for nearly 20 months, but recently left the comfort zone of Kwangju hagwons for one of Gyeonggi's public schools. I also left behind my KIA Tigers baseball club. Does anyone know where games can be streamed on line? My TV is lacking a connection and it won't be fixed for a while, apparently (for whatever reason). I know Naver streams the games, but it must be in Internet Explorer, and I can never get the necessary plug ins (again, for whatever reason). Is there another site anyone here uses?

If I miss a game, the only chance I have is to watch the short highlights on Naver before I start working.

Also, and I hope this doesn't break the terms of service (apologies if it does, and edit where appropriate), but does anyone know of a website that allows punters to part with their well-earned Won by doing some very minor betting on Korean baseball?

Thanks.

Naver is really the BEST because it's via satellite connection, but this one works too (although I'm not sure about the plugins): http://sportstv.afreeca.com/kbo/

That's a cool site, thanks! I'll definitely be checking it out, but would anyone happen to know a similar site with Japanese games? PM me if you do...

Nippon Baseball League: http://pl.tv-live.jp/isp/yahoo/

Master link: http://www.myp2pforum.eu/threads/52406-2011-Nippon-Professional-Baseball-season

I haven't checked it, but it may only work in Japan.

The big question is whether or not watching KBO on Naver back home in the US will work.

Naver works, and the Naver video quality is better than other options, but as you mentioned, it requires software to be installed, and I'm pretty sure this software only works on Windows.

I have been working on adding streaming video links to my website, and have finally got everything working. I have chose to use SPOTV's Youtube streams instead of Naver, because it doesn't require any software installation and it will work on Windows, Mac, Linux, Tablets, Phones, anything really.

To see the games go to

http://www.homeplate.kr

On the upper right side of the page you will see a list of the current day's games/scores. A TV icon will appear when the game starts. Clicking the TV icon will take you to the Youtube stream for that game.

The big question is whether or not watching KBO on Naver back home in the US will work. 

It will work anywhere in the world, but as already mentioned, it will require the installation of software.

Also, and I hope this doesn't break the terms of service (apologies if it does, and edit where appropriate), but does anyone know of a website that allows punters to part with their well-earned Won by doing some very minor betting on Korean baseball?

Sports betting in is legal in Korea is long as you do it through one of the Government authorized systems known as TOTO or PROTO. They offer various different types of bets on various different sports (baseball included). For more information see

http://www.sportstoto.co.kr/index.jsp (Korean only)

You can usually place bets in places like convenience stores, or other places that sell lottery tickets. Look for the TOTO/PROTO signs. The maximum bet is 100,000won.

For online betting there are sites sanctioned by the government for TOTO/PROTO betting such as this one

http://www.betman.co.kr

The only problem is that they will not accept foreign ID numbers for signup. If you don't have a Korean ID number you have to place bets in person rather than online.

Some foreign sites do offer odds for Korean baseball, but most don't. I won't go into any greater detail because it's illegal to use these sites in Korea.

I use Naver on my Macbook and with Firefox. It might be better with Windows/IE though, but I've never tried using it. It's fine on my computer. HD quality and no drag.

You used to be able to watch them on Naver in the U.S. I did a few times last year, but don't know if they've changed their restrictions since then. As was said previously, MYSPO TV also streams on youtube which will also work in the U.S.
