Live sports is one of the major factor which is holding a lot of people from cord cutting, because when it comes to sports, it’s either live or none. No one wants to watch the highlights or replays, which is one of the biggest problem when you don’t have a cable subscription, and the only solution to this is online live sports streaming. BUT WHERE?
Finding a decent online live sport streaming website or app might be a little cumbersome and the chances are high that you might end up, wasting a lot of game time. But you don’t have to worry about it anymore as I have dedicated this article completely on some most trusted live and online sports streaming sites. All the sites are manually verified and have a decent quality of streams available. Also I have divided the article in different section with some most popular sports. Now lets begin.
Free Online Live Sports Streaming Websites
NFL Football : –
Watching NFL is always fun, but the problem is that you always have to wander around different networks in search of the match. The reason for this is that different matches of NFL are hosted by different networks. Similarly while watching online you need to switch into different services for different matches, except for NFL pass, which covers all the matches. Services which live telecast NFL are : –
- NFL pass is one of the best way to watch every match of the season, but there is a problem with NFL pass, you cannot watch live matches. The matches are available on NFL site, 1 hour after the match is over. This is because of the expensive contracts signed between NFL and media communication companies. You can still watch Live NFL using international NFL pass (more details in the specific article).
- Monday Night NFL is telecasted by ESPN, and ESPN can be accessed using online streaming services Sling TV, PlayStation Vue and USTV NOW.
- NFL Sunday ticket by direct TV for watching Sunday Matches online. Special discount is also available for Students.
- Verizon app is a great legit platform to watch all the NFL matches for free. Verizon has a free app for all the Verizon subscribers, which can be accessed through Mobiles and Tablets.
Watch NFL for free
Well, all the services mentioned above might be great for watching NFL online but the thing is that all of them are pretty costly. The NFL pass for a season is alone for $99, which is not even live. This is why I have created a separate article on How to watch NFL for free? In the article I have explained all the services which offers either free or very cheap live NFL games. Here is it : – How to stream free NFL online?
Cricket : –
There are very few platforms to watch cricket in the west (North and South America). The reason is the lack of popularity of the sport among those regions. Still there are few platforms to watch live cricket online, and some of them are :-
- Hotstar and Star Sports (21st Century FOX subsidiaries), are best platforms to watch live cricket online. Both the platforms are free and fully legit. On one hand where Hotstar is good for local leagues like IPL, Star Sports is used for international matches. Hotstar also has separate apps for Android, Windows and iOS mobiles and tabs. One thing which you might wanna consider is that both of these are Indian platforms and you might need a VPN service to access them.
- Willow TV is also a great online service for US and neighboring countries to watch live cricket. The service has made deals with all the cricket boards and have rights to show all the cricket matches live. The service shows HD quality cricket matches with minimum lag. Willow TV is available on Sling TV for online streaming.
Soccer : –
Watching Soccer in Europe is and South American countries is not a big problem, but in USA there are very few online streaming services which shows live soccer online, and some of them are : –
- Fugo TV is an online streaming service which costs $10 a month for major soccer leagues like La Liga, Serie A, MLS, Primeira Liga, Brazilian Serie A, Liga MZ, Ligue 1 and Copa America.
- The sports extra package of Sling TV also includes bIEN Sports, which is an European network to telecast live soccer. ESPN is also there in the basic package of Sling which offers few soccer leagues.
- Again you can use VPN to access Star Sports, which airs LaLiga and English Premier League and few other soccer leagues.
- Kloud TV with around $4 basic + $3 sports extra pack is a good way to watch famous leagues like LaLiga, Serie A, Capital One Cup and few more.
- A $10 service Dishworld.com also offers LaLiga, Serie A and League Ett for live streaming.
Some other services and sites to watch live sports
There are some websites, which offer free live streaming of almost all the major sports. These websites are common for all the kind of live sports including – Soccer, NBA, NFL, Cricket, Tennis, Golf, Boxing, Hockey etc. this is the reason why I have a separate category for these. These websites offers few number of streams for each match, from different networks. You need to select the best stream by visiting them, and by avoiding clicking the unwanted ads.
Stream2watch is a great website to watch almost all the live sports online. You can directly visit the website and select the sport, you want to stream. It will open all the live and upcoming matches related to that sport. Select your sport, wait for the stream to load. Find a suitable stream, for both language and Quality. The service also offers different sports channels for live streaming, so if you know the exact network, you can directly use that, in the live TV section.
Mobdro App For Live Channels
This the most amazing way to watch live sports online, but rather than a website Mobdro is an android application. Mobdro allows you to watch all the different cable networks online for free. So all you need to do is that, download and install the app on your mobile or tablet, and select that particular live sport telecasting network.
You can also use the app on your PC or Mac, you just need to download an emulator to android on your laptop. I know it sounds a little technical but trust me, its really easy and anyone can do it. You can follow my step by step guide on how to install mobdro app on laptops (both windows and iOS)?.
Another good way to watch live sports. The service is more or less like Stream2watch. You can directly go to the website and select the live stream, form the list, which will show up when you scroll the home page.
Now you can select the best link from the 3 links. The only problem I encountered with this site is that the interface language is not English. So you might have trouble in searching the content, although the name of the events are written in English.
Screenvariety seems to be another great option for watching live sports online at negligible. The one thing that makes screen variety stand out among the others is that while other low cost or free services offer poor quality of streams, screenvariety offers HD quality streams. The service costs $30 for an entire year, which gives you access to all the streams of almost all the live games throughout the year.
Borrow the cable ID and Password
Many people don’t know this but all the cable networks offer all their content online on their official websites, but the catch is that this content is not available everyone. Only the people who have paid for the cable (have cable subscription) can access these sites by logging in their account details.
So what you can do is ask your family members or friends for their cable user ID and you are good to go. You can also offer the a little amount in trade of their ID. The best part about this trick is that, you get the best quality of stream, which are hard to find anywhere on internet.
So guys these were the services to stream live spots online. The list has both paid and free online live sports streaming sites, it’s your choice what you want.
