We no longer live in times where we must be glued to a television to watch out favorite sports team or TV show. Technology has changed so much over the last few years that we can watch what we want when we want and where we want.
For those that don’t know, it’s called Live Streams.
That’s when you can have a program or event streamed to your desktop, laptop, tablet or phone. But, it’s not as easy as you may think and there are some hidden obstacles involved. My goal with this quick post is to help you maneuver around said obstacles and help you enjoy the best experience, legally. Yes, I said legally. There are sites out here that offer free streams but remember that word FREE can get you and your computer in a lot of trouble all because you wanted a quick fix.[embedit snippet=”2″]
Let me run down how this works so there will be no more confusion. To stream a live show or event 90% of the time you will need to have a subscription to the channel or that channel has to be apart of your cable package. But, with cable being in almost every house now, that shouldn’t be too much of an issue. Some people have access to these streams and don’t even know it.
What happens is, a person like me who does Live Streams articles every day will give you a link to a game or TV show. You will click on the link and be taken to the main site where it will ask you for a username and password. All that is- is your cable provider info so that they know that you have a valid subscription with Time Warner or whoever your provider is. Hit enter and boom, you have your live stream. It’s that easy.
But there is a catch.
The catch is, watching a team that is not in your region. You can do that when certain stations but if you live in New York like me and want to see the Los Angles Lakers, that may not work unless they are on ESPN or a national station. That is how they get you and try to get you to pay for NBATV or something like that. It’s about money, that’s all. So, what that out the way, let’s get into the top Live Streams for sports and TV shows.
These are more of the popular ones available. There are others but depending on your region and provided you should be able to access them. Have fun and be safe.
