How to watch live sports online via streaming service Turtleboy Sports
If you want to watch all your favorite NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL, college basketball and more games live, you’re going to have to watch a lot of cable and satellite channels.
That’s the conclusion of a study released by the U.S. Government Accountability Office, which says that there’s a need to shift the way consumers consume live sports.
In addition to live sporting events, there’s also a need for streaming video from major news organizations, entertainment companies and more.
The study, released Thursday, found that consumers have no choice but to pay for live sports because they can’t access any other option.
The GAO report, which analyzed data from Nielsen for the past five years, finds that consumers are willing to pay more for sports content online because of the higher quality of content offered.
And they’re willing to do it without the added risk of losing their data or losing the convenience of watching their favorite team live online.
The agency’s analysis of Nielsen’s sports streaming data finds that in 2015, live sports averaged 9.2 million total viewers and 3.2 billion minutes of programming.
It’s also the second-highest viewership for live sporting event on television.
And it’s the third-highest audience for sports streaming on any streaming service, behind only Netflix.
The GAO said it was surprised to see that there were more sports fans watching online in 2015 than in 2014.
The study also found that there are nearly 6 billion minutes and 4 billion seconds of sports programming each year.
And the study found that viewership for the most-watched sports games, like the Super Bowl, averaged nearly 19 million viewers.
And with more and more people choosing to watch on mobile devices, the GAO says there’s still a need “to ensure consumers have access to content that they want to see live.”
The report recommends the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) establish a requirement that cable operators, such as DirecTV, Dish Network, and Verizon, provide live sports programming on a free, ad-supported basis.
It also recommends that the FCC establish a new service called TiVo Live TV that would offer sports on-demand, with no subscription fees.
