If this sounds good, then you should know when making the switch to watch sports online is not the same as watching TV as before. But you will save money when giving up some of the convenience like TV remote in hand when flicking through channels at random.

When setting up a sports TV online and OTA (Over-the-Air) TV systems via Internet-connect computer or any Internet-connected device with web browser and HDTV, the benefits can be amazing. Watch more sports and pay significantly less than any paid television subscription.

Heres how to watch sports without cable or satellite TV subscription. Seriously, the setup is very easy to do and there are YouTube videos that can assist when learning something new:

There are plenty of free sports website to watch ballgames and events online. However, these are 3rd party sites, not content providers or licensed. The 3rd party web-based services that try to stay out of trouble dont host any streaming live sports TV feeds on their website. They dont provide P2P (Peer-to-Peer) networks. Low-cost 3rd party services tend to be better, safer, and offer more.

One 3rd party service has been in service for years and try to stay legal as much as possible. They have legal documents posted on their website for all to read. Even copyrights and DMCA Take Notice clauses, so that copyright owners can request removal of their content.

The same service only direct-connects to streaming live and on-demand feeds that are found through open gateways over the web. They dont host any of the content on their website. They provide two ways to watch live sports online:

1. Live premium sports TV channels from popular sports TV networks 2. Daily live sports TV schedule that list each ballgame/event by name, date, and time

This approach to watching live sports online without cable, doesnt include paying any bundled package or opting into any contract. The cost is a small one-time fee for lifetime access. Not only do they have a dedicated live sports TV section but plenty of other content to watch online. This includes live TV, local TV, global TV, sports TV, VOD movies and VOD TV Shows, with over 9,000 channels.

Make sure you have high speed Internet (25 Mbps or higher) to get best picture quality. Invest more into your Internet connection and remember -- higher the connection speed better the overall performance and picture quality. This will also alleviate slow Internet connection speed during peak hours when more people are online.

To watch live sports OTA without cable or satellite, simply buy a 50-mile radius, amplified, indoor HDTV antenna. Connect the antenna in the back of the HDTV, scan for local channels in the area, and start watching local sports. The picture quality is a lot better than cable and satellite. Use the TV remote to open Inputs or Source menu and select TV (or television) to watch local TV channels.

Use the same method when wanting to watch sports live online and select the appropriate HDMI port. You must connect an Internet-connected device to your HDTV via HDMI cable or wirelessly to smart TV. Most individuals use a laptop computer. When joining a 3rd-party web-based service with live sports, like the one previously mentioned, use the computer to sign into the members area to start watching the sporting event. What appears on the computer screen also appears on the big screen.
