How to watch live sports

Tired of missing your favorite games and sporting events? Below you’ll find several ways to catch live local and primetime sporting events in real time when they air. Most cable providers have a channel guide with listings for every hour or half hour. You can easily scroll through the guide and find the channels with the games you’re looking for. Depending on your cable provider, you may also have the option of text or voice search. Cox customers with the Contour Voice Remote will have the option of advanced voice search capabilities – simply type or say the name of a team, game or sport to view results.

Looking to trade recaps and highlights for action as it happens? Cable TV is still the most convenient way to access sports live, including football, basketball and baseball.
