The summer is winding down and the fall season is starting to ramp up. And with autumn comes lots of great sports action for everyone. Fast, reliable internet from S&T can ensure the serious sports fan in your house never misses out on the action.
Along with traditional broadcast channels like ESPN and the major networks, as well as the newer network-based streaming sites, ie Peacock, Paramount Plus and others, there is now a growing list of streaming-only services that carry almost any sport you can imagine from nearly anywhere on the globe.
While you may not follow Indonesian cricket or Argentinian soccer, there’s no reason you should go without on college football weekends when you live out of market from your alma mater, or your school is too small to ever make it on prime time TV.
Here are just a few of the more popular sports streaming sites and apps to consider. Some require cable subscriptions, but an increasing number of them don’t. Choose your favorite, sign in, sign on, and let the games begin!
WatchESPN: This is ESPN’s internet television and mobile app operation. It provides access to a dizzying array of minor and major sports events through ESPN broadcast channels themselves, along with the Longhorn and SEC networks and the streaming-only services ESPN3 and ESPN+. They generally require paid cable subscriptions, but not always. ESPN3 is typically restricted to desktop or laptop computers. (There are workarounds.)
NBC Sports: Cable TV subscribers get free streaming access to the wide world of NBC Sports, which features live events as well as news articles, schedules, and more.
Red Bull TV: This free streaming site adds lifestyle content to its eclectic mix of extreme and adventure sports, such as cliff diving and mountain climbing, as well as tamer pursuits such as skiing and surfing.
Bonus site: VIPRow. This site aggregates a wide variety of sports and entertainment streaming sites, from major international soccer leagues to darts tournaments. Lacrosse anyone?
There are multiple options for streaming live sports onto your TV and wireless devices. But there’s only one way to ensure the service is seamless and reliable: internet service from S&T.
