What you need to stream sports online

Streaming your favorite sport is easier than ever. Most apps and channels that give you access to streaming sports are compatible with a number of platforms, including your mobile phone, tablet, computer or smart TV.

Because some streaming rights have been targeted to mobile devices, mobile phone carriers have been spending big money to gain those rights. Some providers use the digital sports platform as a tool to entice customers. However, that is changing. If you wanted to watch an NFL game on your phone, for example, you needed to be a Verizon customer. But beginning in January, NFL games will now start streaming to all mobile carriers.

Some sports offer dedicated smart TV apps, as well as apps for platforms like Apple TV. Others will let you beam a mobile connection to your TV via a Chromecast or Airplay connection. But most allow you to stream your favorite sport from any compatible device.
