When it comes to being a sports fan, it’s more of a way of life than a mere interest or hobby. When you’re into sports, catching your team’s games is important to you, and you don’t want to, nay, can’t, miss a single game, short of an emergency. So, to make sure you catch every game, you want to have the best and most access possible. In this modern age of technology, there are more ways than ever to watch your games, so what is the best option? That question may not have an easy answer, but here are a few tips to find the right fit for you.
For starters, today we have numerous ways to watch just about anything, and the newest, and quickly becoming the most prevalent, is the streaming service. Netflix is the exemplar of this new way to consume media, and it will most likely not be able to offer you live sporting events, so you can safely cross Netflix, Hulu, etc. off your list, though they have plenty to offer in other categories of entertainment.
Something more useful to you is the livestream. This is basically broadcast television, uut on the internet. Livestreams have a lot of different types of media on offer, from people playing video games for an audience to special events. Under that umbrella term of “special events” is sporting events, and that’s where you come in. The business model of the livestream is this: either it’s free, or it’s pay per view. So, when it comes to big events like sporting events, expect to pay a small, one time fee to catch your games.
Despite all of the advancements in entertainment technology, perhaps the best way is a relic of the past: cable TV. Cable television offers all of its programming on a set schedule, so live sporting events fit the mold quite nicely. So along as you have ESPN as part of your cable package, you’re good to go, so try finding the best service via providers like QVC and get watching.
