So, it makes sense that in an effort to adopt and retain users new to the streaming world, platforms are flaunting competitive sports offerings to give themselves an edge.

The plethora of options is great because it offers plenty of ways for cable cutters to stream sports live and on-demand but it can feel overwhelming. Many sports fans might even, as a symptom of decision fatigue, go back to their expensive cable packages because of the familiarity, despite it not being the best option for them. The right sports streaming package will be different for every person depending on your preferences — including what sports you follow most closely, your favorite sports commentators and your need for DVR and playback capabilities.


That said, one of the best streaming packages available is the DIRECTV Sports Pack, which offers new subscribers more than 20 specialty sports channels. Plus, customers can get it included at no extra cost for seven months this baseball season.
