Depending on your favorite sport, you’ll generally find a few ways watch your team play online. A growing trend is dedicated apps, which promise not only live broadcasts but conveniently curated highlight reels, plus interview shows, on-demand replays and even multiple camera angles.

These apps are generally available for mobile and tablets on both iOS and Android platforms, but smart TV and streaming device apps also let you enjoy a dedicated big screen experience.

Where to watch sports online

What you need to stream sports online

Streaming your favorite sport is easier than ever. Most apps and channels are compatible with a number of platforms on mobile phones, tablets, computers or smart TVs.

Because some streaming rights are targeted to mobile devices, mobile phone carriers have spent big money to gain those rights. Some providers use the digital sports platform as a tool to entice customers. But that’s 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 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.
