There's always a game on somewhere, and keeping up with all of the action doesn't come cheap. Watching the big event often requires a cable subscription, regardless of whether a fan is trying to watch on their television or a mobile device. 120 Sports offers a bit of a respite from this difficult situation by letting people keep up with the latest goings on in the sports world without having to cough up a cent.

The 120 Sports network, consisting of a website and mobile apps, has partnered with various leagues to provide content. World Cup news currently sits atop the front page, but there is information available on the NBA, MLB, NHL, PGA, NASCAR, and other associations. Over ten hours of programming pops up every day.

The app is both easy to dive into and easy on the eyes. Each video has a giant thumbnail, and content streams while comments are visible below. There are hashtags that show what is currently trending, so even just occasional watchers can stay up to date.

120 Sports doesn't cost a dime to use, but there are a few banner ads to put up with here and there. Though the app is highly visual, it doesn't yet support browsing through content in landscape, making it slightly awkward on a tablet. Still, early reviews are positive on both Google Play and the Apple App Store, making this an easy recommendation for Android users trying to keep up with what's happening on the field.

        the news app inside. I get breaking notificatgions on any topic iam interested in. For example I day trade so i need to be up to date on all news. With the inside app I TELL IT WHAT TO UPDATE ME ON and how frequently and i get reports about nay activity throughout the day. No need to open a news app. Everything Iam interested in gets pushed to me.

          Thanks I'll check it out.

    Has anyone managed to get an answer on if it's geo-locked or anything? Ive messaged them on twitter a few times and by email, and still no answer.

    I can understand (MAYBE) not my 2012 Nexus 7... but how is my Nexus 5 not compatible? The only thing I can think of is the app being geo-locked... and if thats the case, doesnt make much sense.

    • nightfishing

      all my devices are compatible (GNex, N5, Tab), so you are probably right about location blocking

    • Freezer

      It's geo-restricted.. you easily can check by clicking on install and then in the dropdown menu you can see the greyed out message that it's not available in your country.

      • Patrick Beliveau

        Thanks. I dont normally hit install if it says my device is incompatible... Now the real question, why would they geo lock it?

  • Justin Weldon

    Apk please if not geo-locked, clicking the link shows "not available in country"

  • slick

    Can somebody upload an APk please, it's not available in my country :(

  • remister

    Why is it when I search stuff on Play Store, I can't find the app that I want, even when it's a direct text match of the app.

    • dogulas

      Agreed. Something is off in how they do search results. Now that's just silly.

    • Ioan Greavu

      Apps that are not available in your country will not be displayed in search results. However, you can acces them via direct link.

      • remister

        when I click on the playboard link, it gave me access yes. I am in the US, so I wasn't region locked out.
        Overall just trying to share the link my friends, but didn't want to personally install the app.

    I haven't tried this app, but the bleacher report app is pretty good for general breaking sports news, but also for latest new on specific sports and teams.

  • dogulas

    Now add Chromecast support and we're golden!

    • Patrick Beliveau

      screen casting should work fine. I watched the MLB futures game yesterday doing this. slight lag but definetly watchable.

  • Freezer

    And as usual it seems to be US exclusive.. at least mention that in the article, AP. Would be nice.. especially since there are obviously readers outside the US on this site.

  • rogue3

    Does it include live events as well?

  • Allen Tanguay

    Does it stream CFL?

  • stevetherepo

    Can you at least mention whether it's available in other countries or not?

  • Andre Mika

    SEARCH FULL NAME WITH NO SPACES...... 120SPORTS - pops right up.
