If you are a big fan who likes to stay up to date with all kinds of sport teams, below are a few apps that could help you out.

It’s really useful in case you don’t get the chance to watch a game, you can watch it on the road with NBA League Pass which is a channel that streams just NBA games. The cost to watch all thirty teams is $199.99 and to watch just one team of your choice costs $119.99.
