Hi 

Does anyone know of any legit ways I can watch NBA highlights and other American sports highlights such as the NFL? I'd like to avoid getting sky installed if possible. Are there any apps or youtube channels that would let me stay up to date with these? Don't necessarily need live games etc. Perhaps something akin to Match of the Day?

Thanks

    The Superbowl is usually broadcast on BBC One in February time, but the bulk of the coverage Sky have.  For text updates,stories get published on the BBC News site and there has an occasional "Match of the Day" type show for this sort of content on BBC Two.

    With regards to other sports, NHL is pretty much absent cover wise in the UK (Channel 5 in the early days used to air it but they've long stopped doing that), and the NBA is a Sky thing as well.  Baseball is a BT Sport thing.

    Sometimes highlights of these sports are streamed on YouTube on the official channels.

    Remember Now is owned by Sky which is a streaming platform so you don't need to get a dish installed - just have an internet connection if you want to see the live coverage, though of course it'll be like 2 in the morning for a lot of it to take live.

    NHL is on premier sports I think
  • For NFL you can get the NFL game pass (£150 for the season I think) and watch all the games live. Or there is a cut down (£40 per year) call Redzone which shows the highlights of all games. The NFL YouTube channel shows game highlights condensed into 5 or so min shows.
