Exclamation Getting Live Premiership Commentaries outside UK

Hi, Can anyone suggest a website (or two) that we can get live premiership commentaries when outside the UK? We can only find live text commentaries (not quite the same).

We live in Thailand and have UBC cable magic but the provider streams the live matches with local commentary. As we want to avoid having to sign onto another service provider just for the games any recommendations will be greatly received.

I don't get the contract thing. I mean, who's losing out if you listen to the BBC over the Internet? Is it supposed to mean that if you listen to it, then perhaps you won't watch the highlights on FSW the next day or something?
