Eclipse Internet has called on sports fans to take care when making use of online football highlights services.

The broadband provider stated that while such services are ideal for enthusiasts to catch top action, they can potentially cost them more by pushing them over their allocated monthly download allowance.

Clodagh Murphy, Director of the internet service provider, added that firms should ensure they keep their subscribers updated on their bandwidth usage.

"Eclipse's policy of openness and honesty means we would warn users that viewing just five minutes of football highlights through the yahoo site will use 32MB of bandwidth – or 0.03GB of your allowance," she explained.

Ms Murphy made the comment after Yahoo confirmed it has launched its own Premier League highlights service in the UK.

The service, which will include coverage of every game this season, will include video advertising from the likes of Heineken, Adidas and Sony Pictures.
