Digital streaming was a forte of a multi-million-dollar free streaming industry before the global behemoths even tried mobile and desktop streaming. Premium streaming services have become popular only in the past decade, however, free streaming sites have been a headache for major studios around the world. And they’ve been in the game far longer than their adversaries. In the past decade, sports streaming has become one of the most lucrative avenues to make money for free streaming websites. One particular website which has quite a reputation in the streaming world is Sportsurge.
What is Sportsurge?
Sportsurge is one of the leading portals to find sports streams from the most popular games such as Football, NBA, MLB, NFL, MotoGP, and F1. Sportsurge provides its audience with top quality links which they can use to stream the content in HD quality. Earlier Sportsurge was just restricted to NBA, NFL, and MLB. However, they have expanded their reach and now you can find football, F1, MotoGP and UFC on there as well.
How does Sportsurge work?
Sportsurge works as a directory. It shares a high-quality link on its website which the users can use to access live streams. Now, this might make you wonder – Isn’t that illegal? Shouldn’t they be banned? The reason why Sportsurge isn’t facing any legal notice as of yet is that it falls in the grey area. They have a disclaimer which suggests that none of the materials are hosted on their servers and thus they aren’t liable for the content since the links are shared by the users. They don’t charge any fees for the content and they just share information about sports television.
Why should you stream on Sportsurge?
Sportsurge may have just a handful of sports, but those are covered in-depth. For instance, if you want to watch Football on Sportsurge, you won’t just get links to EPL games but for leagues such as Serie A (Italy), La Liga (Spain), Bundesliga (Germany), Ligue 1 (France) and Primeira Division (Portugal) as well. Thus, though there aren’t many sports on the website the ones that are present are covered in great depth.
Great User Interface
The dark design approach with HD logos in block format helps the website appear premium. Right now, Sportsurge is in beta version, however, once it is fully developed, I expect the user interface to improve even further. Presently, navigating across the website is smooth and there are little to no discrepancies when you’re browsing or entering any of the inner pages.
Sportsurge makes it very clear on their homepage that they won’t run ads on their website. In a way, the Ad-free approach elevates the user experience to a great level. Ad-free experience means you don’t have to worry about adware or malware and thus you can stream without worrying about any repercussions.
Quality streaming links
As compared to some of the streaming sites that I have reviewed lately, Sportsurge, in my opinion, provides the best links on its platform. For instance, I wanted to watch the trial run for F1 Grand Prix in Abu Dhabi and I tried 4 different links on the website. To my astonishment, all four links worked great and were in HD quality.
Zero Bluff Content
Most streaming sites, when they don’t have any quality link tend to bluff their audience by putting random links. These streaming links are either affiliate or adware which are terrible for your device. On the contrary, Sportsurge doesn’t show any content if there’s no streaming that day. The effort to keep users first and protect their interests can be appreciated by everyone.
How to access Sportsurge?
There are multiple ways to access Sportsurge. You can search for the term ‘Sportsurge’ in your search engine and on the first page itself, you’ll find different domains with the same brand name. Alternatively, you can use the following link to access the website: Sportsurge. When accessing the website, make sure you have an active VPN as it will help protect your identity and your data.
I really like the clean and minimal design approach on this streaming website. The minimalistic and dark themed design really catches your eye. Though there’s not much to browse and navigate since the website is in beta phase, I still had a great time checking different options and streaming links.
As of now, there’s no header section on the website. There’s just a landing page with the main tagline that reads ‘What do you want to watch today?’, followed by ‘Sportsurge helps fans from around the world to watch their favorite games, events and more.’
The hero section of Sportsurge has six thumbnails – Boxing, MMA, Motor Sports, Basketball, Football, and Hockey. Each of these sports when you click on the show the individual leagues and events in the same format. For instance, when clicking on Motor Sports, you get three thumbnails to choose from – Formula 1 Racing, Formula E, and MotoGP.
Sportsurge at the time of writing this review doesn’t have a body section. The square-shaped thumbnails you find in the hero section continue for a row. Again, I don’t think I’d call it a part of the body section because I feel that the developers are yet to add that.
The footer section of Sportsurge has two options – Home and log in. Other than that, you’ll find a disclaimer suggesting that they don’t run any popups or disruptive ads and the content is not provided by them.
The most active page on the website is when you decide on a sport and there are streams available. For instance, when I checked links for Pre-Season testing, I found dozens of links with information such as Name, Resolution, Framerate, Bitrate, Language, Coverage, Compatibility, Ads and Comments. By reading these options, you can understand which stream will likely play the best on your device.
There’s absolutely no dearth of content on this network. You can watch your favorite NFL, NBA, MMA, MLB, F1, Soccer streams on this network.
You can watch different competitions such as NBA, NCAA in HD quality for free. So, whether it’s LA Lakers, Boston Celtics or Chicago Bulls that you’re supporting, you’ll find comprehensive basketball action on this streaming platform.
If you love to watch ice hockey, you’re in for a treat. You can access a wide range of ice hockey coverage including leagues such as NHL, WHL, OHL, ALH, AIHL, KHL to name a few. Thus, whether you’re into Canadian league or Australian, you’ll find live coverage on this website.
American Football has a gargantuan fan base. If you love watching the NFL, Sportsurge is one platform where you can do so without having to sign-up. Follow your favorite teams and watch them play online from anywhere.
For viewers who love speed and don’t want to miss a beat from their favorite motorsport event, Sportsurge is the streaming platform you need to be glued to. From Nascar and MotoGP to F1 Live and Formula E, you’ll find quality links on this website.
The rise of UFC has turned the sport of MMA into a global sensation. Stars like Conor McGregor, Khabib Nurmagomedov, GSP, and Israel Adesanya have taken the world by storm in recent years. Thus, it’s no surprise that you want to stay up-to-date with the world of MMA with content from promotions such as UFC, Bellator and One Championship. If you’re an MMA fan like me, Sportsurge is the platform you need to stream at.
I tried streaming Sportsurge from my mobile and my desktop. My Google Pixel 3a played the Formula 1 Pre-Season testing without any buffering. I really liked the quality of the links that are shared on the website. Furthermore, no advertisements allowed me to stream without worrying about any malware or adware. Though Sportsurge lacks content depth as of now, I’m sure that more streams will be added and updated on a frequent basis. Based on my experience, the website is still in the beta phase and it can take a good couple of months before you can find hundreds of streams on this network.
Suggestions I have for Sportsurge
I really can’t wait to see what the developers at Sportsurge have up their sleeves. The website looks fascinating and I can’t wait for them to add more depth to their content. Once there are quality links, I’m sure the interface and streaming quality will be able to gather a considerable amount of traction.
If you’re a sports lover, Sportsurge is a streaming website that you certainly must not sleep on. In the next 3-4 months, it’s going to explode like a wildfire. The website interface, compatibility, and streaming quality are going to make this platform a streaming name to be reckoned with.
