Streaming services have officially taken over cable TV and now we have more control over what kind of content we spend our money on. This also concerns sports events and games as well, whether you’re into boxing, football, basketball, or even skiing. If you are a big sports fan but haven’t made up your mind about whether or not sports streaming services are worth it, here’s a list of the top 5 sports streaming services, ranging in price points and variety that are designed to fit 5 different kinds of sports fans.
Locast.org sports streaming
We’d like to start this list with a streaming service option that is completely free for users. Locast.org is a non-profit organization aimed at connecting watchers with their local television and it could be a great chance to catch sports games on local channels without paying anything at all! You will find plenty of NFL games, NBA playoff games, and World Series on Locast.org and if that sounds like your cup of tea, you really can’t top this offer.
ESPN + streaming selection
ESPN+ is an obvious choice for all sports fans. The starting price for this streaming service is $5.99 and it offers a wide variety of sports to its users. But this is a particularly great option for UFC fans since it gives you access to Fight Night broadcasts. It is also a good choice for people who generally enjoy sports and want the option of tuning in to different games and discovering something new. ESPN+ also streams games from NHL, MLS, and MLB, giving you more than enough options to choose from. To conclude, this is a solid option for UFC fans and people who are open to watching various sports.
This streaming service is definitely on the more expensive side with prices starting at $65 a month. Although Youtube TV does offer a 5 day free trial period if you want to test out the service before committing to it. Through Youtube TV you can watch ESPN, NHL, NFL, NBA, and MLB games among other options. This streaming service has a huge variety and it can be really convenient for sports lovers who appreciate the variety and the luxury of having multiple choices on what sport to watch. Although the high price point can be a deal-breaker for some people, if you’re a big sports fan this could be a worthy investment.
Sling TV is another streaming service option for those who are over cable TV. Sling TV gives you options, convenience, and variety. When it comes to payments Sling TV has a different approach: you only pay $20 for your first month and after that, you pay $30 monthly.
With Sling TV, you will have two packages to choose from Sling TV Blue and Sling TV Orange. With the Blue package, you can get FS1, TNT, and NFL Network, and with Sling TV Orange you’ll get ESPN and TNT. While this streaming service does not have the largest selection out of our 5 top contenders, it sure is affordable and could be an upgrade from your current streaming service or cable.
Our last recommendation is mostly for English Premier League fans, and we know there’s plenty of them. Peacock’s starting price is $4.99 with an option to try it for free for 7 days.
Peacock is owned and operated by the Television and Streaming division of NBCUniversal and broadcasts English Premier League games and different championships in sports like skiing, figure skating, and much more. It also comes with an impressive collection of TVs and Movies, so this is a great option for people who like sports, tv, and movies and want something that covers all their interests.
Streaming services for sports are a dream come true for every true fan. While it’s true that you get what you pay for, even the free options can be a perfect fit for someone who enjoys sports, but not enough to actually pay for a whole subscription. On the other hand, if you are willing to pay for a service, there’s a lot for you to choose from and you won’t be disappointed.
