NBC Sports Live is a streaming service that provides US users access to their favorite sports matches and news live and on-demand via the NBC Sports online and mobile platforms. Launched in August 2012, users can access live events from the NBC Network, including NBCSN via iOS, Android, and Windows smartphones as well as Apple TV, Roku, and Amazon Fire. Users must authenticate through their TV or ISP provider credentials.
There are apps available for Android and iOS devices via Google Play and the iTunes App store, and all are free of charge.
This service is available to viewers with participating TV and ISP service providers such as AT&T U-verse, Time Warner Cable, Verizon FIOS, Suddenlink Cable, Dish Network (and Sling TV), DirecTV, Cablevision Optimum, Charter Communications, Comcast Xfinity, Cox Communications, and PlayStation Vue and others. If your provider is not included in the above list, please check the list of participating providers on the NBC Sports Live website.
The majority of sports, including soccer, basketball, golf, baseball, and auto racing (NASCAR) are covered. However, those who enjoy the NFL will not be able to view games from their smartphones (only via desktop) due to an licensing agreement with Verizon.
