Just like movies and music, sports have their own specific type of online streaming sites which serve the fans’ interests and the interests of the internet service, providers.
In the coming years, all sorts of other popular streaming sites will gradually jump onto the sports streaming bandwagon. For the sake of convenience, here is a compilation of the best sites that facilitate sports streaming in the U.S. at the best price and with maximum quality.
FuboTV is one of the oldest and most popular sports streaming sites in the U.S. In terms of a mobile app, it has been available in the Apple App Store since April 2016. Now, with its latest software update in November 2017, the FuboTV mobile app is officially available in the Google Play Store.
The sports streaming site carries a low price tag of $34.99 for the base package which is sufficient for watching most live sports events such as MLB, NBA, and NHL, featuring exclusive packages such as Soccer and Formula 1. You also have the option to upgrade to the 75-plus-channel channel pack for $69.99 per month.
Apart from the channels, you can also make use of the 2-D channels for the games and the 3-D channels for movies, sports and reality shows. FuboTV’s content has been licensed by the major media organizations such as the NFL, the MLB, NBA, and the NHL.|
Further, An interesting US-based website which is allowed to Watch Sports streaming live free of cost. The name of this one interesting website is the 6streams. It also allows MLB streams, NHL streams, and NBA streams to watch for free.
The catch is that you need to keep using FuboTV’s Android TV app at all times as this can only be used for streaming content from the network channel and not for any live events. But hey, just pay a monthly fee and you are good to go.
2) Sling TV
The famous Sling TV is another company that has been working on the sports streaming segment for quite some time now.
Sling TV, whose parent company is Dish Network, has over 50 live and non-live TV channels to offer including games of the MLB, the NHL, and the NBA. Moreover, the company is also licensed by the NHL and MLB to carry live streaming matches of their respective sports.
The most significant thing about the Sling TV app is that it can be used by mobile devices running on iOS and Android operating systems. However, it cannot be used to watch live events of channels such as MLB, NBA, and NHL.
Currently, Sling TV offers three different base packages – Orange ($20/month), Blue ($25/month), and Black ($40/month), which can be combined with the Sports Extra add-on. The most significant catch is that you need to be a FuboTV subscriber to get the most out of the Sling TV app, although there is no added cost.
3) Hulu with Live TV
Hulu with Live TV is one of the newest and more affordable sports streaming services to be released in the United States. Although Hulu is still in its testing mode, it has already attracted more than 10 million users in the country.
The Hulu with Live TV is available for both, internet-enabled television sets as well as mobile devices and it provides users with access to live TV channels along with a slew of on-demand content. In short, it delivers almost all the channels that are available in the United States, including the Big 4 networks – ABC, CBS, NBC, and Fox, plus channels such as BBC Worldwide, CW, Discovery Channel, VH1, MTV, Nickelodeon, Comedy Central, and many more.
The app has been launched on the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store, but since it has not become available for users in the U.S. from the Google Play Store, they can still subscribe to the service and watch the sports content on its website. But that is definitely not the most ideal way to watch the content.
