Best Streaming Sites to Watch Sports 2022
Catching every sports game can be difficult, especially as our lives get busier. Technology has adapted and has become more interconnected than ever to provide you with on the go options, so you never have to miss your team play. Whether you are watching the game on your phone while your partner is watching Netflix, or you are in charge of the Super Bowl party this year, finding the best streaming sites can be challenging. The array of options for customers can also be overwhelming; with so many choices, it may be hard to find what deals or streaming services are most suitable. We have compiled a list of our top streaming services to watch live sports in 2021, so you can find the best deal for you!
One of the most comprehensive options on our list is Fox Sports and is perfect for people who don’t want to purchase cable television to watch games. Fox Sports covers anything broadcast on FS1, FS2, BTN and live events on NASCAR, NFL, WWE, basketball, boxing and much more from the world of sports. Fox Sports also offers its very own app, Fox Sports Go. The app covers a wide range of sporting events with live streaming options available from MLB, NBA, and NHL games and college football, soccer, baseball, and basketball. Both Fox Sports and Fox Sports Go are compatible with most smartphones and devices so you can stream on the go. The app also offers you an opportunity to catch up on pre or post-game discussions, interviews and documentaries. Both apps can be personalized to ensure your favourite teams' news, scores and events will be pushed to the top of your screen. These streaming apps act as an extension with other compatible services such as Hulu, fuboTV, Sling TV or AT&T TV Now, so it is technically free if you are signed up to one of these options. Most of these companies offer affordable packages and free trials (usually up to a week) if you are unsure they are right for you!
If you are interested in more extreme style sports, Redbull TV has it all. Redbull TV is a perfect option with a wide variety of content from sports and new music releases, to interviews and concerts. This expertly designed app is free and can be accessed through your Amazon account or firestick. While not focusing exclusively on sports, Redbull TV broadcasts unique and exclusive content, all being free to download. This platform won’t surprise you with any in-app purchases or paywalls that some other streaming services can overwhelm you with. Additionally, you can watch all your favourite content ad-free! Redbull TV is perfect for those who love the outdoors and adventure sports such as mountain biking, dirt bike competitions, dune buggy adventures, skateboarding, surfing and snowboarding. Live events such as F1 championships are also accessible on the app. Playable on all mobile devices, you are able to get your second-hand adrenaline rush on the go.
NBC Sports provides you with live sports content streamed on its traditional channels such as NBC, NBCSN, NBC Sports Gold, the Golf Channel and many more. Everything on the app is streamed in HD, including score notifications and up to date game schedules. You will be able to watch live matches, catch up on anything you missed and replay all your favorite sports games. You can watch anything from NFL, NHL, NBA, Soccer, Motors and dog shows! NBC Sports is especially good for football fans, NASCAR championship streaming and fans of the Olympics, keeping you constantly informed on the scores, news and live updates. You will be able to stream NBC Sports for free as long as you can verify a cable or satellite license, telco or live streaming subscription (including NBCSN). HULU, fuboTV and Swing TV all offer competitive subscriptions, which include access to NBC Sports. Accessing content is quick and simple as the app is compatible with all Android and iOS devices but only available to those in US states due to broadcasting regulations.
ESPN is one of the biggest and most reputable names in the sporting industry. So it’s not surprising they released their own app for their fans. ESPN+ is a slightly more expensive subscription service. Still, with over 10,000 live sports events, ESPN Originals and ESPN Films on-demand, it is definitely worth the extra money! What makes ESPN+ unique is its array of options and high-quality content. You will be able to watch on-demand content, news, highlights, interviews and live programming on the app. ESPN also has an array of original films about controversial and popular sports professionals and documentaries on how your favourite teams came to be. ESPN+ costs $6.99 per month or $69.99 per year. An ESPN+ membership is $6.99 per month, or you may save almost 15% by purchasing an ESPN+ Annual Plan for $69.99 per year. For $13.99 per month, you can get ESPN+, Disney+, and Hulu bundled together so you can get something for everyone in the family. Subscribers may access ESPN+ over the web, iPhones, Android phones, Android TV, iPads, and Android tablets. ESPN’s app WatchESPN is a free version of this service for those on a budget.
DAZN was founded in 2007 and has seen a steady rise to the top of sports streaming services worldwide. For a monthly subscription of $19.99, the service offers thousands of events a year, including the NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL, F1 and of course boxing and MMA. The platform also offers viewers the chance to watch the Premier League, which sets this subscription service apart from most American streaming companies. After signing a massive one billion dollar deal with Matchroom (owned by boxing promoter Eddie Hearn) in 2018, it has become even more popular with fans. DAZN has broadcast some of the biggest fights of recent times including Canelo Alvarez and Anthony Joshua and is a popular platform for these kinds of matches that can often be pricey to stream. This is a great service for sports bettors and those that watch a variety of sports. You will be able to watch DAZN via mobile devices, TV and streaming services, computer desktops and many popular gaming consoles. It is one of our top picks, and we would highly recommend this reasonably priced, well-rounded service.
This subscription service is the most expensive on the list, but if you are an avid basketball fan, this one’s for you. There are multiple subscription services to choose from. From day passes, if there is a specific game you would like to watch, to premium packages for those who will not miss a game (and want to rewatch plays repeatedly). Day passes can be purchased for $7.99, giving you access to live and on-demand NBA games for 24 hours. The next items can either be purchased monthly or annually. For example, you can purchase a 3-game choice pass which gives you access to choose any three live games you would like each month for an annual fee of $43.99 or a monthly subscription at $4.99. If you only want to watch your favorite team play, you can watch that team’s every game for an annual pass of $129.99 or a monthly pass of $18.99. There are a few other options, but the most premium option is the League Pass Premium, which entitles you to access every live and on-demand game. It also allows you to watch NBA studio programmes and multiple screening options so that you can share your subscription with a friend. All of the above (except the daily pass) has a 7-day free trial available if you are on the fence about subscribing!
