Football, racing, golf, boxing – you name your sport of choice, chances are you can stream it your way in Netherlands. This is how.
Streaming sport in Netherlands
Like in most parts of the globe, the streaming of content and particularly live sport has come a long way in the Netherlands.
A market that was once overloaded with pop-up-fuelled, unreliable and often illegal streaming options now has a number of official, legitimate choices for viewing sport on your preferred device.
Compare sports streaming platforms
In Netherlands, depending on the provider, sports streaming can be available on mobiles and tablets, plus certain Smart TVs and gaming consoles. It’s always worth checking with providers to ascertain device compatibility for your chosen sport.
Some free-to-air providers also have streaming services to go along with their regular TV channels. This allows you to watch sports from the likes of NOS, RTL, SBS6 and more.
International sports streaming companies like DAZN, Fox Sports and Eurosport have access to a variety of professional sports in the Netherlands. They offer a wide range of options and prices, with many also coming with free trial periods.
In the Netherlands DAZN has access to some of the biggest name boxers in the world including Anthony Joshua, Gennady Golovkin and Canelo Alvarez.
Sports streaming offers the Dutch a new way to get their sports instead of relying on Pay TV services and channels such as Fox Sports, Ziggo, Caiway and Delta.
You can also access sports leagues or individual teams through dedicated apps or channels directly from the source, such as F1 TV, WWE Network, Watch NRL and Watch AFL.
It’s also not just the live action itself sports fans seek. Features like split screens, highlights, multiple camera angles and dedicated shows are also selling points.
Free trials are common. iOS and Android devices, Smart TVs and apps are all options to access content. In an increasingly crowded market, more sports and improved features are becoming available all the time.
What you need to stream sport in Netherlands
Watching sports requires two things. Something to watch on which has always been the case, as well as a reliable internet connection.
Typically iOS, Android devices, Apple TV, Chromecast, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Amazon Fire TV, plus Mac and PC, are ways to access some of the content. Providers typically have monthly and annual subscriptions.
How much data does streaming live sport use in the Netherlands?
Again here it depends on your provider and bandwidth. For example, Chromecast’s video output is 1080p, while it also has 4K available on Chromecast Ultra. Apple TV also has 1080p and 4K options.
If you have an Internet connection speed of around 30Mbps for download and 2.5Mbps for uploading you should be free to access content to most devices without any buffering or other issues. Streaming sport in 4K uses around 7GB/hour while HD uses a little less at around 3GB/hour.
