Watch Sports Game Online – Stream Live Sports Games
Maybe you’re out of town and can’t catch your favorite teams or the game you’ve been waiting for all year. Maybe your TV is on the fritz. There are many reasons why you’d like to catch a game online, but you don’t want to spend a cent. Lucky for you, there are ways to watch your favorite sports online absolutely free.
One of the best ways to guarantee that you catch the game online is on WatchESPN.com. This service is absolutely free — for people with existing subscriptions. ESPN partners up with cable subscribers around the US. If you’re online, all you have to do is click on the game you want to watch. The site will prompt you to enter the name of your cable provider and sign in to your existing cable account. This guarantees that you have access to your favorite sports no matter where you are.
If you don’t have a cable subscription, the best way to watch baseball, football or any other sport online is at WiZiWig.com. WiZiWig keeps a list of live game streams on the site, helpfully organized by category. Most of the links are live streams that you can watch as long as you have Flash installed in your browser. In some cases, the site will ask to install a Torrent program like StreamTorrent. These are usually safe, as WiZiWig supports P2P (Peer to Peer Streaming). The site also has a handy how-to guide to help newbies get started.
Sportlemon.tv is also a good resource for live streams. While most of the links listed are direct streams and require no downloads, you may end up with poor quality video. However, some streams are in HD. You may have to go through a lot of trial and error before you find a stream you like. Another good streaming site is FirstRowSports. The site doesn’t ask you to download, but again, what you stream is what you get. There’s no way to fix or upgrade the quality of what’s available. These sites can also link you to some dead channels.
You can also check out official clips and streams on YouTube. The official channels (like the NBA’s official YouTube channels) are usually the best bets. You will rarely find a full game stream on YouTube, but if you’re short on time this is the best place to watch highlight reels and great moments. But full games uploaded by fans are usually taken down in a few hours and they’re difficult to catch. The upside is these are usually high quality in-demand games.
If you prefer not to install anything on your computer (or own a Mac), you may want to try live streaming sites. However, avoid sites that ask you to download “special” software in order to view “HD” streams. These are usually malware programs that will harm your computer. Beware of “trial” programs that use your credit card number too and offer a number of subscription days for free. You’ll have a hard time cancelling that subscription for sure.
