All right, if you'relooking to cut the cord, save some money, andstill stream live sports, you've just gottakeep your eye on the ball, take it one game at a time, and you can knock it out of the park.
No, I don't like sports cliches either, but I thought I would take one for the team so that this intro would be a slam dunk.
Let's step up to the plate.
Now, before we get started, I'll just remind you we are doing a smartTV giveaway right now.
So, if you wait 'til the end, I've got some more detailswaiting at the end of this video.
Now, as we get started, a few points to remember.
The numbers that I'm gonna be using, I'm gonna be talking a lot about pricing for streaming services, they're from the most recentseasons, so they could change by the time the next season rolls around.
Lastly, you can skip ahead to the sections that are most relevant to you.
If you're just here to learn about how to stream one particular sport, you can go check that out.
We're gonna be coveringfootball, baseball, basketball, hockey, and soccer, the top five most popular sports in the US right now in that order.
So, if you check outthe description below, I will timestamp all of those and you can skip aheadto what you want to see.
All right, first up is football.
This is the football we're using to illustrate that, apparently.
If you wanna watch football, if you wanna stream football, NFL Sunday Ticket is your best bet.
94 a season, you can get everyout-of-market Sunday NFL game.
Other days of the week, might be outta luck on those.
NFL Sunday Ticket Max isabout a hundred bucks more, and that's going to includethe Red Zone Channel, which recaps every scoringplay across the league, and the DirecTV Fantasy Zone, and that includes player stats, commentary, fantasy stuff.
So, if you're a fantasy player, that's gonna be awesome.
If you love college football, here things might get a little dicier.
You can use Sling TV, which, over the courseof a six-month season, including the playoffs, will cost you about $225.
Now, you can also, for college football, check for your favoriteconference's streaming service.
Pac-12, Big Ten, they'vegot streaming services.
Just be aware that those gamesthat are on those services are mostly gonna be less major games.
The major games are gonna be on ESPN, ABC, FOX Sports, that sorta thing.
All right, next up is baseball, and apparently I'm a catcher now.
I didn't make these decisions.
All right, MLB.
TV isgonna be your best source if you wanna watch baseball.
You can get a single-team package for $92.
That's a single team, all 162 games.
There are some blackoutsinvolved, but, for the most part, you're gonna get everysingle one of those.
If you wanna watch every MLB team, that package is only $119for the entire season.
The value per game is staggering here.
So, for MLB.
TV, if you getthe single-team package, you're only paying 57 centsper game to watch that team.
If you get all teams, then you're only paying two cents per game to watch all of those teams.
If you are a true baseball junkie and you want to watcheven minor league games, there is something called MiLB.
TV, which you can get for about $50, and it's gonna be a similar package, all out-of-market games.
Now for basketball, withthe oldest basketball– Seriously, is that JamesNaismith's basketball? This is amazing.
Okay, NBA League Pass iswhere you're gonna wanna go if you want to streambasketball, especially the NBA.
So, for $119, you canget the one-team package.
Similar to MLB.
TV, this lets you watch all of the out-of-marketgames for one team.
For $199, you can getall out-of-market games for all teams across the NBA.
And if you splurge for the $249 package, you get all teams plus thearena stream from each game so that when there's a commercial break, it doesn't actually break to commercials, you just get to watch thestream from the arena itself.
So, might be nice if youreally, really hate commercials.
If you are an NCAA basketball fan, again, similar to what I was talkingabout in the football section, you can check for conference networks, which will air some games.
Again, the marquis games willprobably be on your ESPNs, FOX Sports, ABC, that sorta thing, but you are gonna get quite a few games on those conference networks, which, they usually have their streaming servicesavailable for you.
Next up is hockey; thank you.
Welcome to Canada, eh? I loathe myself.
Okay, this is one of thesimplest sections I've got.
TV is your destinationfor hockey content.
For a single-team package, similar to some of the otherones we've talked about, this is all out-of-marketgames for a single team, you can get that for $110.
If you want all teamsacross the NHL, that's $140.
Pretty good deal.
And lastly, we have soccer.
This is a soccer ball, apparently.
Please subscribe so we canget a better props department.
All right, now there isa ton of soccer content, not just here in the US, obviously, but worldwide.
And so, if you are a soccer junkie, tons of options out there.
MLS content, very similar to the serviceswe've talked about before, all out-of-market MLS games are going to be availableon a streaming service.
This one is ESPN+, which youcan get for only $5 a month.
It's a screaming good deal.
FuboTV is also a reallypopular soccer fans' live TV streaming service.
This one is $55 a month, considerably more.
So, over a six-month span, $30for ESPN+, $330 for FuboTV.
But you do get a ton of soccer content, especially through their beINnetworks; those are great.
Now, off the beaten path a little bit, you can go check out Fanatiz.
This is a broadcaster that does all the Centraland South American leagues; so, Argentina, Mexico, Chile, Peru, all of your Latin American leagues.
$10 a month, great deal there.
And if you like theEnglish Premier League, then go check out NBC Sports Gold, which you can get for $65 a season and watch all the Premier League you want.
Now, if you are calculatingcosts for cord-cutting purposes, don't forget to factor inyour other streaming services, things like Netflix, which you're probablypaying $13 a month for, Hulu, $6 a month, Disney+, which we're allsoon gonna be signing up for, that'll be $7 a month.
So, make sure you don't forgetabout those ones as well as you're calculating your cost.
But the point of this whole video is this: If live sports is the only thing keeping you from cutting the cord and you're not planning to sign up for the ultra-premium version of everything I've talkedabout in this video, then you've got some goodoptions, some really good ones.
