Streaming services were supposed to make it easy to choose your channels, but it hasn’t worked out that way. If watching sports is your top priority, you may have to pay more. We will help you find the cheapest options.

Unfortunately, sports networks are often included in larger packages of channels that you may not want. To make matters worse, most sports networks have been gobbled up by two entities: Disney (ESPN) and FOX Sports. getting exhibit of these channels can be costly and annoying.

Sling TV offers two channel packages, each with a few sports networks. The “Orange” package includes the ESPN family of networks for $35 per month. Networks that broadcast sporting events include:

  • ESPN
  • ESPN2
  • ESPN3
  • TNT
  • TBS

For an additional $11 per month, you can get the “Sports Extra” add-on package. The plugin’s channels depend on its base package (orange or blue). The Orange package gets these additional channels:

  • ACC Network
  • SEC Network
  • ESPN U
  • Red Pac 12
  • be in sports
  • longhorn web
  • ACC Network Extra
  • MLB Network
  • SEC Network +
  • NBA television
  • SPNOTICIAS
  • tennis channel

Vidgo is one of the newer streaming services and has a lot of potential for sports fans. There are two plans to choose from: “Plus” for $60 per month and “Premium” for $80 per month. The “Plus” plan is the best value for money to do sports, it includes:

  • big ten network
  • ESPN
  • ESPN2
  • SPNOTICIAS
  • ESPN U
  • FS1
  • FS2
  • longhorn web
  • MLB Network
  • NFL Network
  • NHL Network
  • Red Pac 12
  • SEC Network
  • Stadium

In select markets, you can also get your local FOX channel through the “Plus” plan. That’s an extremely solid selection of sports channels for $60 per month. However, Vidgo is relatively new and therefore not as polished as other services.

The Orange and Blue packages mentioned above can be bundled together for just $50 per month. It’s a great deal, but if you need the Sports Extra add-on it goes up to $15 per month when combined with the Orange & Blue package. That brings the total to $65.

Speaking of $65, that’s what YouTube TV costs without add-ons, and you won’t need any additional channels to match Sling TV Orange & Blue + Sports Extra. YouTube TV includes the following sports channels:

  • ABC
  • CBS
  • FOX
  • NBC
  • big ten network
  • CBS Sports Network
  • ESPN
  • ESPN2
  • ESPN U
  • SPNOTICIAS
  • FS1
  • FS2
  • nbc golf
  • MLB Network
  • NBA television
  • NBC sports network
  • olympic channel
  • SEC Network
  • TBS
  • TNT
  • trutv

The cheapest sports streaming service really depends on your needs. If you only care about your local NFL team, you can probably watch them for free with an OTA antenna. You can also avoid expensive packages if your teams play primarily on ESPN or FOX Sports. Unfortunately, “all you can eat” sports packs don’t come cheap.
