Do you often find yourself missing out on the late night sporting event? Maybe you work the second shift and you miss your favorite teams playing because you’re stuck at work. If this sounds like you, then do I have some good news or what. There are so many apps out there that let you watch live games right on your phone! They can also keep track of running scores of other teams and events and you easily control what you’re watching. All you need is a smart device and an internet connection, no matter where you are in the world. We are going to cover some of the best applications you can download on your mobile device to ensure you get the latest news and coverage. Let’s go!
This might have been a no brainer. ESPN is the number one station in sports coverage and live games. It only makes sense that they would develop an app for both iPhones and Androids. You can see on the screen: current news about your teams, upcoming games and events, final scores, highlight reels and social media coverage. All you have to do is create an account and you can access everything you need. You can also set individual notifications for things like start times, results, and breaking news so that you don’t miss a thing.
Another top contender for sports streaming, 365 Scores is a free application that includes coverage for a wide variety of sports such as: rugby, ice hockey, and football among many others. You have the ability to play around and customize the screen to fit your wants and needs as a fan. Unfortunately you are unable to stream live games, but they do provide live scores and stats so you can still keep up with everyone else watching at home. They also provide highlight reels from the day-of matches.
It may seem strange to add a betting app to this list, however, hear me out. Some of the best mobile apps to wager bets on also allow you to stream sports too. So, if you like to watch the latest games in Brazil or Eastern Europe and can’t find them on a local channel, you can almost be sure to find them available on betting apps. Although, whilst some may be free, others may require you to place a wager on the match to have access, but you can literally make the minimum spend needed to qualify. Much cheaper than paying a hefty cable subscription.
One of the best free apps out there to watch live sports. There are 100+ channels to browse and choose from that not only cover sports but entertainment in general. They also consistently update and add channels to their service, so the potential for coverage is limitless. Some of your favorite sports are likely already on their platform, but if they aren’t they are sure to come in the future as they update the app. Check out their website to download it.
The popular kid at school, Modbro is attractive to many people. This is because it allows its users to stream live videos in multiple languages as well as only requiring an internet connection to use. They have a bookmark system that allows you to more quickly access your favorite content. You can create a free account to use Modbro, though you won’t get access to all its features without subscribing.
Hulu If you have a spotify account or hulu account AND you like sports, then you are in luck my friend. Hulu has live sports! Of course, this comes at the cost of $12.99 per month. This might be cheaper if you have a spotify premium account as they offer a discount for hulu. The best thing about this is there is a large variety of sports. They cover the NBA, NFL, NHL, NCAA, and many more. You can download hulu on any mobile device, for free which makes it easily accessible.
Now this is a costly app, but it does have its advantages. While $59.99 a month is quite a bit of money, you get a massive amount of channels to watch. They have sports, entertainment, and news channels available so you might not need another streaming service if you go with fuboTV. Additionally, they have a user-friendly DVR system so you can record anything you might miss and watch it when you have the time. The coverage of the program extends to international level, giving you the ability to watch almost any game anywhere in the world. That being said it does only offer 720p resolution which might be a red flag if you just bought that new 4k TV.
These are just some of the many, many options available to you for live sports viewing. Be sure to check out these and others on your app store. Read the reviews and see what people are saying so you can avoid hidden feeds and microtransactions. The sooner you download an app the sooner you won’t have to miss another game.
