Keeping watch of all those scores is no easy feat, but you can get them all from great channels like NBC Sports. So, if cutting the cord and going online to watch TV is on your mind, and you're looking for ways to watch NBC Sports without cable, we know just what you need to do.
NBC Sports is a channel that has a history going back to 1939, which makes it one of the oldest such channels in the world. Nowadays, it features coverage of loads of sports, including football (pro and college), NASCAR, golf, hockey, tennis, and loads more, inclusive the Olympics.
