In case you’ve got a high-speed satellite internet connection, this is a excellent time to become a sports enthusiast. No matter if they crave football, hockey, baseball, basketball or even soccer, sports lovers are no longer limited to only watching what’s on their regional television channels, but instead they can choose from dozens of live matches on their computer. Even more amazing, many websites offer you several matches for free. What fan wouldn’t be pleased with this?
Among the first site’s to offer live streaming sporting events on their site was ESPN.com. Already the leader on live sports on cable tv (they recently secured the rights to the college football BCS championship show, getting the first cable network to broadcast a significant championship game), ESPN lately introduced ESPN360.com, a site which broadcast’s complete, live sporting events on the internet. ESPN uses this technology mostly for college football and basketball games which allows viewers to select from multiple games to watch throughout the day. Depending on your internet speed the streaming is somewhere between good and average, but you can not beat the access to multiple football games the site provides you.
A couple of years back, CBS made waves in the sports world by offering every single game of the NCAA Basketball playoffs for free San Diego Live Streaming in their CBS Sports website. This service was provided for two reasons: 1) since the opening rounds comprised several games being played at the very same times, people were only able to view regional matches and so missed around 75% of another actions; and 2) because most matches began during work hours, the average fan could finally have a way to see the games in their own office computer. The site even provided an emergency “boss” button which brought up a spread sheet if a person were to wander into a workspace during a game.
NFL Sunday Ticket has been a favorite television package for Direct TV which offers customers the opportunity to watch every football match, in or from market, from their home. Last year, Sunday Ticket branched out into cyber space and today offers subscribers the opportunity to watch live games on their personal computer or cell phone. This sort of mobile technology has also been embraced by other satellite firms which provide soccer, hockey and other live sporting events.
Not to be outdone, Major League Baseball and the National Hockey League both recently launched a service that enables subscribers the chance to view games from their computer. While both leagues charge for this service, with the way trends are going look for each leagues to start to offer live games at no cost in the forthcoming seasons.
