on tv

In today’s fast-paced world, staying glued to the TV to catch your favorite match isn’t always an option. But worry not, sports fans! With the rise of smartphones and mobile technology, watching live sports on your phone has become easier than ever. Here’s a comprehensive guide exploring some of the most popular ways to catch live sporting action on your mobile device, perfect for users in Bangladesh, Nigeria, Kenya, and India:

Official Broadcaster Apps

Many major sporting leagues and broadcasters have their own dedicated mobile apps. These apps allow you to live stream matches directly on your phone, often for free (if you have a cable subscription with the broadcaster). Here are some examples:

  • Cricket: The official apps of Star Sports (India), Sky Sports Cricket (Bangladesh), SuperSport (South Africa, broadcasting many international matches), and Hotstar (India) offer live streaming of cricket matches with commentary and additional features.
  • Football: Apps like Premier League (England), La Liga (Spain), and the official UEFA app (Champions League, Europa League) let you stream live matches, access highlights, and view news and statistics.
  • Other Sports: The NBA app (basketball), NFL app (American football), and ESPN app (various sports) are just a few examples of official broadcaster apps offering live streaming for their respective sports.


  • Free with Subscription: Often free if you already have a cable subscription with the broadcaster.
  • Reliable and High-Quality: Official apps usually offer high-quality streaming and reliable service.
  • Bonus Features: Many apps offer additional features like highlights, news, and statistics.


  • Limited to Broadcaster’s Coverage: You can only watch matches the broadcaster has rights to show.
  • Geo-Restrictions: Streaming might be restricted based on your location.
  • Subscription Required: May require a paid subscription for some channels or events.

Social Media Platforms

Some social media platforms, like Facebook and Twitter, have started streaming live sporting events. These may be official broadcasts from a league or broadcaster, or partnerships with streaming services. It’s important to follow the official pages of the sports league or team you’re interested in to see if they offer live streaming on social media.


  • Convenient Access: Accessible through platforms you already use.
  • Potentially Free: May be free depending on the broadcaster and agreement.


  • Limited Availability: Live streams are not always available on social media.
  • Lower Quality: Streaming quality may be lower compared to dedicated apps.
  • Data Usage: Streaming consumes data, so be mindful of your mobile data plan.

Sports Streaming Services

The first option is installing dedicated sports streaming apps from major broadcasters. For example, Hotstar (India & Bangladesh), SuperSport (Nigeria & Kenya), and DStv (Nigeria) let you purchase affordable mobile-only monthly sports packs granting access to stream live Premier League football, cricket, Formula 1, tennis and much more in HD quality.

Official apps like NBC Sports, ESPN, Willow (cricket) and DAZN also provide comprehensive coverage for major American, European and global events through flexible subscription plans compatible across devices. Apps offer convenience with zero lag if you have decent internet connectivity.

  • DAZN: Offers live streaming of various sports, including football, boxing, UFC, and MotoGP.
  • Hotstar (India): Provides live streaming of cricket, football, kabaddi, and other sports, with a focus on the Indian market.
  • Willow TV (USA): Primarily focuses on cricket, offering live streaming of international and domestic matches.
  • YuppTV: Offers a variety of channels, including sports channels, depending on your region.


  • Wide Range of Sports: Access to a broader selection of sports compared to broadcaster apps.
  • Multiple Channels: Often includes various sports channels, not just one specific league.
  • On-Demand Content: Some services offer on-demand replays and highlights.


  • Subscription Fees: Requires a paid subscription to access content.
  • Data Usage: Streaming consumes data, so be mindful of your mobile data plan.

Free Streaming Services

For the budget conscious, various free (albeit unofficial) sports streaming sites exist loaded with links to watch matches through embedded players. Sites like Crichd, Redditz and Live-Streams are user favorites for catching live Premier League, UFC, Formula 1 and much more without subscriptions.

However, free streams frequently drop quality or get taken down by copyright holders. Stable feeds are not guaranteed but remain a handy last resort option for big events if willing to tolerate minor inconveniences.

A few free streaming services offer live sports, although the selection and quality may be limited. Be cautious, as some “free” services might be unreliable or contain malware. Here are some reputable options to explore with caution:

  • YouTube: Some channels may broadcast live sporting events, although these are usually unofficial or amateur streams.
  • Twitch: This platform is primarily for video games, but some streamers might broadcast live sports (again, legality can be an issue).


  • Free: No subscription fee required.


  • Limited Options: Selection of live sports is often limited and unreliable.
  • Lower Quality: Streaming quality may be lower compared to paid services.
  • Legality: Be wary of illegal streaming services that may compromise your device’s security.
