Watching Live Sports on Fire Stick for Free – Best Sports Apps for FireStick

2 1,025

One of the greatest things about Kodi and the Fire Stick is the volume of content that is available. There is enough on there to keep you occupied for decades! One of the things that aren’t so good though, is the lack of news and live sporting events.

However, that’s not really the case! There are actually several different ways that you can do both of these things!

You must use a VPN

Before I get into all of the nitty-gritty about live streaming, I feel it best that I mention the importance of utilizing a VPN for your connection. With the current crackdown in the UK on Premier league football, ISPs are being forced to not only block channels and servers but also reduce browsing speeds for their customers if they are detected streaming over the Internet.

VPNs however, help to protect you by hiding what you are viewing from the ISPs and ensure that you can maintain your security and privacy.

VPNs however, have another benefit, especially when it comes to sporting events. Many sporting events are restricted to specific channels and countries and if you do not reside in the country, it does not really matter what app or add-on you are using, you will be unable to view the content. With a VPN though, you can mask the location you are browsing from and make it appear as if you are in the country that the signal is meant for.

I recommend IPVanish VPN to our readers. I’ve arranged an EXCLUSIVE deal with IPVanish to give our readers 20% discount. Just click on this link.

Do you need help to install IPVanish on your fire device? Here’s a very simple guide.

Sports News

I won’t go into too much detail about Plex as there is a whole post devoted to it already which I’ve covered previously. But in a nutshell Plex News is available as a channel within Plex and it gives you real-time news.

There are also a bunch of other different apps that are a bit more specific like BBC News and the CBS News app, but as this post is primarily about Live Sports lets jump into that topic!

How to Watch Live Sports on a Fire Stick

Let’s be honest, this is often a deal breaker for many people when it comes to cutting the cord. Fortunately, there are a couple of different ways to live stream sporting events which I shall cover in some detail below.

  • Plex channels – Plex has a bunch of different channels that can be added which give you access to sporting events. You can access football (soccer), NFL and NHL to name three of the biggest, but you also gain access to CBC and the Golf Channel. Our post on the Best Plex Sports Channels will give you a lot more detail.
  • Kodi Add-Ons – Kodi offers a host of different sports-related add-ons that can be added and some of them are truly excellent. One of the best things about a Fire Stick is that you can install Kodi onto it and it works really well. Once you’ve setup Kodi, then check out the Planet MMA Add-On as well, especially if you’re a fan of UFC.
  • Mobdro – Mobdro is another really good app that integrates directly into Android devices (no need for Kodi) and you can even use it with Windows systems using an emulator. Check out our full install and configuration guide on our Mobdro Official App review but if you want to further enhance your Fire Stick, make sure you check this one out.
  • Live NetTV – Live NetTV is our final selection for live streaming apps and we’ve possibly saved the best for last. This app offers over 500 channels in a host of different categories including Sports and its really easy to use.

Between the Plex channels, Mobdro and Live NetTV as well as Kodi, you will have so many channels to play with all you’re going to want to do is crack a cold one, and grab a seat so you can chill and catch up on what’s going on with your team!

Just don’t forget to use a VPN to be anonymous, the ISPs are really looking at who streams sports illegally. We recommend you to protect yourself with IPVanish VPN.
