2024 has an incredible variety of exciting sports events in store for us. The AFCON, the Super Bowl, the UEFA European Championship and the Summer Olympics are just a few of them. You may wonder how to follow at least some of these events online. Here are a few solutions to help you get your daily sports action online.
Today, most broadcast TV stations have an online service, too. All you need to do is find your favourite channel and follow it online. But sometimes, this is not the case – and not all major events are covered locally. This is where services like Tubi, Plex, and Google TV come in.
Plex has many thematic channels where you can see sports content covering everything from snowboarding to AFL. Tubi has a nice selection of live TV channels like Fox Sports, MLB TV, NFL TV, USA Today Sports, and BeIN Sports. And Google TV also has a great selection of sports channels. Of course, many of these are only available in the US and Canada, but there are workarounds – and most of these services are free.
Many sports betting sites like Supabets or Betway have their built-in sports live streaming service. But mind you, the range of available events is limited. Don’t expect to see major events like the Olympics or the European Championships covered on a betting site. But many events can be followed live. This is especially true for eSports, a streaming staple, and smaller regional events in sports like table tennis, rowing, and others.
You don’t even have to make a real-money deposit to follow a live sporting event. All you need to do is register an account, access the “Live bets” section and dive right in.
In the age of streaming, you can see services dedicated to sports. And there are quite a few, but some are only available in certain regions due to licensing concerns. With the occasional workarounds, of course.
The list of streaming services dedicated to sports content is large. We have DAZN, focusing on boxing and other fighting sports, soccer, NFL, motorsports, and tennis, with live and on-demand programs. We have ESPN+ with combat sports, college sports, and ice hockey in its offer, Sky Sports and BT Sport, both in the UK, with extensive coverage of association football, cricket, rugby, golf, and others. Even Amazon Prime Video will occasionally cover important sporting events.
We live in the age of streaming. Everything from the latest Hollywood blockbusters to sporting events and concerts can be followed online. There are many ways to stream sports on your phone, computer or even TV, from live online channels to the live betting sections of sportsbooks.
