Update: Live Sports is no longer available. We suggest you use one of the other live sports extensions available for the Chrome browser currently.

Live Sport for the Chrome browser is a sport fan's dream come true. The Chrome extension lists direct links to sport broadcasts which can be viewed directly in the browser.

That's handy if your national TV is not broadcasting the match or event at all, if you are abroad and want to see your favorite team or if you are stuck in office with no access to a television.

Live Sport adds a football icon to the address bar. A click on the icon opens a menu after a few seconds with options to display live scores or live streams. While it displays a football icon, it supports other sports as well.

Live Streams are conveniently sorted by sport, with tabs available for football, tennis, hockey, basketball, baseball and Volleyball. It might feel a bit strange that American football is not on the list. The most likely reason is that it is sorted in the other category.

The other tab contains sports like Cricket, Rugby, Nascar table tennis or cycling among others.

A click on a category displays all matches for the particular time and day. Each match is listed with an icon that indicates the sport, the time it starts, the teams and a Video link.

A click on a match row displays detailed information, including links to flash contents that stream the game live on the Internet. Some links may require registration before they become available, the majority do not.

match listings that you can watch

A click on a link opens the live stream in a popup window or in a new browser tab in the Chrome web browser. It may take some time before the contents are displayed, and you will sometimes encounter errors like streams that do not exist anymore or cannot be loaded at that time.

The popular matches, especially football matches, usually offer multiple stream links so that it is easy to switch to another stream if one is not working correctly.

The stream quality ranges from barely viewable to excellent.

Live Scores are displayed for current, upcoming and finished games. There are options to view tables in leagues or tournaments, and to customize the selection to exclude sports or events from the display.

Live Score for Chrome makes it a lot easier to find live streams of sport matches and events. While it is possible to find those links on your own, it usually means lots of searching and testing before you find one that is working and streaming in good quality.

Chrome users can install Live Sport directly from the official Google Chrome Web Store.
