Is Sportsbay illegal? Top 7 alternatives

Sportsbay was one of the most popular free sports streaming sites around until it was sued by DISH Network for breaching anti-circumvention provisions of the DMCA. Since then the site has gone offline and its viewers have been looking for an alternative. 

Most if not all sports broadcasts are often under exclusive right by some network. If a website is out there streaming them for free the networks lose money, not to mention it’s a form of piracy. Therefore, strictly speaking, Sportsbay or any of its alternatives aren’t exactly legal. At best, they lie in a grey area between the two. 

In this article, we’re going over the top seven Sportsbay alternatives that are online at the moment.

Most of these sites might violate copyright laws as sports streams as mostly properties of their respective broadcasters. We do not support or encourage breaking any sorts of laws, cyber or otherwise. Please check your local laws before visiting any such sites to avoid getting into trouble.
