On the Better app you can stream the best of international soccer and European and American basketball. Here's how

The apps have changed the way we enjoy sports. To see the match of our favorite team or a tennis match you don't have to be in front of the TV, but just have a smartphone with a good Internet connection and use one of the many apps that offer live streaming of sporting events.

To access video streaming services that offer sporting events you must be registered and in some cases even pay a monthly or annual subscription. However, there are also free applications that allow you to watch live streaming of Champions League matches, Grand Slam tennis tournaments and the best of the NBA, the U.S. basketball league. Here are the services and applications that allow you to follow sports events from your smartphone.

How to follow sports from your smartphone

For sports fans, the smartphone has become a faithful travel companion. If you can't sit in front of your TV for work or personal commitments to watch a soccer, basketball, tennis or Formula 1 race, you can do it on the move using one of the video streaming services available for smartphones: SkyGo, DAZN, Eurosport Player, RaiPlay, Mediaset Play, dplay. In addition, there are also apps that are not exclusively dedicated to video streaming, but that also have a platform to watch sports events from your smartphone. An example is the betting app that, in addition to showing odds on sporting events, offers users the possibility to follow the streaming of matches.

SkyGo, DAZN, Eurosport Play are subscription services: to access streaming content you need to pay a monthly or annual fee. SkyGo and DAZN are the ideal apps for soccer fans: Serie A, La Liga, Ligue 1, Bundesliga, Premier League are just some of the leagues whose matches are broadcast. Eurosport Player, on the other hand, is home to many "secondary" sports: basketball, cycling, winter sports, motocross, just to name a few.

RaiPlay and Mediaet Play are two other video streaming platforms available for smartphones. Sports content isn't the main course, but they do stream important competitions such as the Champions League soccer, national team matches and volleyball championships.

Another viable alternative is the Better app. In the Live section, in addition to finding real-time updated odds on sporting events, you can follow the matches in streaming. The bookmaker has the TV rights to the Spanish La Liga, Bundesliga, FA Cup, Ligue 1, NBA, Fiba tournaments, Grand Slam tournaments and tennis Masters 1000. To see the matches in streaming on Better you need to launch the application, enter your credentials, have the account in active and enter the Live section. If next to the event there is a red icon with a TV then it means that there is streaming of the match. For those who don't have a subscription to paid services like Sky and DAZN, the Better app is an alternative to watch live sporting events.
