One of the top reasons families don't cut the cord sooner is because of an unfounded fear that they simply can't watch their favorite sports teams anymore. This is untrue, and with a little bit of help from us, we can walk you through it pretty easily.
If your teams have games on channels like CBS, NBC, FOX or ABC, you'll likely be able to get them with an inexpensive TV antenna. Regional sports networks and Cable-only channels present a slightly more complex problem, but with the multitude of streaming services available online today, the solution is more than manageable for anyone, no matter their technical savvy. Click on each team above to research the best ways to watch those respective teams' games.
Some sports (NHL, NBA, MLB) will black out their games for local viewers unless you are watching on their Regional Sports Network. Anyone that tries to stream games while inside this "local viewing area" are subject to blackouts (i.e. the game is on, but you can't watch it).
Luckily, there is a way for those of us that want to cut the cord, yet can't live without our local sports teams, regardless of blackout status. By using a VPN - or virtual private network - your home's exact location is masked. Teams then cannot determine if you are within their blackout "range", thus allowing you to watch whatever sports team you want.
