Best live streams to watch sports and TV shows

When you want to watch sports or your favorite TV show but you aren’t by a television, it’s time to turn to a live stream and these are the best of the best. 

We all love to watch sports and entertainment on television, but not everyone is able to catch the action on cable or live as it all happens. This is particularly annoying when it comes to watching sports, as fans can’t afford to fall behind the real time action the way that fans of television shows are able to and simply catch up with later. But the trouble in live streaming your favorite television shows and sports teams is tricky and it all depends on what great lengths you are willing to go to make sure you stay up with the action.

Sports streams are a mixture of hard to come by and easy to access. The catch with most is that you need to have a subscription to view the stream or you need to have an existing cable subscription to get past the paywall.

These are streams that are guaranteed to be safe for you if you’re trying to catch a game in the NBA, NFL, NHL or MLB as well as other sports like Soccer, Rugby and everything else including college events:

1. Fubo TV

2. NBC Sports Live Extra

3. Watch ESPN

4. Fox Sports Go

5. TNT Overtime


7. NBA League Pass

8. NFL Now

9. NHL Game Center

If you can’t access any of those, then you might have to get around the rules a little bit to watch the game you want to watch. It’s not recommended at all that you use any of these streams, but you can proceed at your own risk. Depending on where you live, these streams may or may not be legal.
