Live stream the snooker World Championship 2019: how to watch from anywhere

Well the 2019 World Snooker Championship hasn't disappointed so far, has it!?

With this guide, you can find out how to get a World Championship snooker live stream from absolutely anywhere in the world you are so you don't miss another minute.

Cast your mind back one year ago when veterans Mark Williams and John Higgins battled out an epic 18-16 World Snooker Championship final in the former's favour. Almost 20 years after his first Crucible win, the Welsh Potting Machine lifted the trophy once again. Of the rest of the field, expect the likes of former champs Neil Robertson, Stuart Bingham and Shaun Murphy to challenge. Or will this finally be the year of Judd Trump or Ding Junhui?

But world number one and snooker legend Ronnie O'Sullivan won't be among them, having suffered a MASSIVE surprise defeat at the hands of 23-year-old amateur James Cahill in the first round. Astonishing stuff - Ronnie was the pre-tournament favourite for this year's crown.
