With LiveScore you won’t have to tune in your car radio or hastily run to the laptop to see yesterday’s score. Instead, you can get the same info with just two taps. And Livescore’s database is truly gargantuan!

Here we have:

And other major leagues, tournaments, and events. To make things easier, you can simply pick a country to find an event faster. Or open the app’s calendar. All important games and scores are there to be found.

The app has also a few nifty features. First, if you can’t watch the game at the moment, Ball Tracker will save the day – this function shows the game progress live. Second, the app is pretty great in terms of customization. For example, you can put all your favorite games in My Matches category, so you won’t have to search for them later.

Stay tuned about every important match with LiveScore.

SportEventZ brings the joy of live television broadcasting to your smart gadget. And the channel catalogue doesn't fail to impress:

  • BBC Sport; 
  • Football 1;
  • Match! Premier;
  • Canal Plus Sport;
  • Fox Sports, and so on.

Basically, every major channel from Europe and North America is here. But what is even better, you can manually choose which satellite will broadcast a game! You can switch between Thor, Amazonas, Hispaat, and others for better quality.

As for the number of sports, it’s literally monstrous. Apart from classic football, basketball, and UFC you will also get timetables on:

  • Curling;
  • Squash;
  • Water polo;
  • Gaelic Sports;
  • Badminton;
  • Aussie rules, etc.

And even e-sports including DOTA 2, Star-Craft, and LoL are also on the list. Sadly, SportEventZ doesn’t stream games itself. Instead, it only gives your schedules, programming and a number of channels where you can watch a game in question. 

At the same time, its search engine is pretty flexible. So, you can filter results by a sports name, country, league, channel and even satellite. And a loud notification will warn you that it’s time to transform into a cheering fan beast.

SportEventZ is the most comprehensive app about sports programming.
