One of the most common concerns for people considering switching to an alternative to cable is the ability to watch their favorite sports teams. Luckily, there are many different options for sports fans to still be able to watch their favorite games live. Below, let's take a look at just a few of the available options to still watch sports without the costly monthly cable bill.
● Roku 4.0
Roku is an independent box that works in conjunction with your Smart TV or computer. Simply connect to your device using an HDMI cord, and you are ready to start watching live television. Roku has over 2,500 live streaming channels available, so you are sure to find the sports you love. Most of the streaming channels are free, but some require a monthly subscription service. Another nice benefit of the Roku is that it has a separate headphone jack, allowing you to watch live sports without disturbing others around you.
Sony's Playstation 4 is not only a video game console, but also a streaming device. The Playstation will allow you to connect to several streaming services, including Hulu, Amazon, and Netflix. The real benefit, though, is that Playstation has several apps that allow you to view live sports. The ESPN app can be downloaded through the app store. There you will be able to find live television as well as pre-recorded highlights from the day's biggest games.
● XBox One
Not to be out done, Microsoft's XBox One also functions as both a gaming device as well as a streaming device. Just like the Playstation, the XBox One has the capabilities to integrate streaming services such as Hulu and Netflix, but also stream from ESPN through the ESPN app. Further, the XBox One can stream live sports through apps such as Tennis Network, MLB Network, or NHL Network through their respective app. These networks do cost an additional monthly fee.
● Apple TV
Apple TV is a device that connects to your television through the HDMI input. Not only are you able to stream your favorite movies and shows purchased in iTunes, but you are able to utilize the apps of your favorite streaming devices. Apple TV also has the benefit of the Apple Airdrop, which allows you to broadcast anything streaming on your computer directly to your television without cumbersome wires and cords.
