Clever Ways To Watch Live Programming on Mobile Devices

Clever Ways To Watch Live Programming on Mobile Devices

The majority of Internet use now takes place on mobile device. The use of a mobile device to watch live programming is growing rapidly. Since so many companies are competing to provide that programming, it may be difficult to decide which option is most affordable. If you don’t do your homework, you will pay overpay for access. Use these tips to decide which provider you want to use.

Cutting the cord

Time magazine explains that mobile use is part of a broader trend in entertainment. Consumers are choosing to “cut the cord” by canceling cable TV and using other services. The challenge is to find a combination of companies who can provide the programming you want at a lower cost than your cable bill.

The Verge provides a cord cutter tool. The site lists entertainment companies that provide access to channels. You can click on a provider and the site displays the specific channels that are included. The goal here is to select enough providers so that you get all of the channels you watch frequently.

Once you select the providers, the site will list the total monthly subscription cost. You can compare that cost to your cable bill. If there are shows that you want from other channels, you can consider buying individual episodes. Both Amazon and iTunes sell access to certain TV shows. You can purchase the shows you want, without needing the channel itself.

The challenge of live events

The challenge for the viewers is that the channels know the value of live programming. As a result, most providers do not provide free access to live shows and events.

The four networks (ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox), for example, provide nearly all of their shows for free on their websites. These networks typically do not post programs, as they are being shown live. They will delay adding them to their sites for several days or longer.

One of the most-watched types of live programming is the NFL. Charlotte, NC DirecTV installers explains that NFL Sunday Ticket gives fans live access to all NFL games. Football fans can also use the Red Zone Channel to watch all of the action within the 20-year line of each game. Sunday Ticket is a great option for NFL fans that want to watch on mobile devices.

Other live sporting events

If you’re a fan of another major sport, you’ll find live programming on several cable channels, including ESPN, TNT, TBS and others. To watch live on a mobile device, these channels will charge you a monthly subscription. Instead of going to the channels, you can also access live programming through the sports leagues themselves. MLB.com, for example, offers live access on mobile devices for a fee.

In some cases, you can buy mobile access to live programming for just a specific event or series of games. If you’re a college basketball fan, you may want mobile access to the NCAA tournament in March. CBS, who provides the games, sells mobile access to the tournament.

Live sports programming is an exciting form of entertainment. Consider these choices to watch live programming on your mobile device.
