Let’s get started with the main guide.
Where to Watch the CrossFit Games 2020 Live?
We have been watching the CrossFit Games on ESPN or CBS. No matter if it’s on dish network or without cables, these channels can be watched online without any hassle at all. But there is another catch. In 2019, the Reebok CrossFit Games did not broadcast their games on any of these channels.
For the first time in the history of this tournament, they decided to do a different approach, which is open-source broadcasting. That means there won’t be any particular TV channel to enjoy the game and a bunch of broadcasters took this opportunity to stream that year’s events.
For this sudden move, fans all around the world found it difficult to watch the tournament easily. They had to scroll through several pages on google to know about possible broadcasters, which is a huge pain. That’s why I am here for you! Keep reading and you will become the master of the CrossFit Games Live Stream.
There is no official news about their intention this year, but rumors say that they will bring back ESPN and CBS streaming and also keep the open-source broadcasting service.
This open-source-broadcasting was a great addition for the Non-English Speaking CrossFit communities and fans. Spanish, Arabic, Russian, Danish, German, Russian viewers can watch the tournament in their very own language, which is great.
How to Watch the CrossFit Games 2020 Live?
There is no dedicated services available just for the sole purpose of streaming the CrossFit Games, but there are top-notch streaming providers that can be used to watch the CBSSN or ESPN to enjoy the upcoming tournaments. I will talk about them now.
When we think about watching TV online, a few service providers always pops up in our mind. SlingTV, DirecTV, FuboTV, and, YoutubeTV are the best among all the premium streaming providers. Let’s review them.
Whenever we think of a sport-related streaming service, FuboTV is the first to go. They offer a great selection for sports streaming. It’s a paid streaming service and offers free 7 days trial. You’ll need to signup with your credit card information to avail of the trial period. The best thing is you won’t be charged a dime if you cancel the service before the trial period ends. That means you can watch the CrossFit Games 2020 Live for Free!
DirecTV Now is an awesome service for streaming the CrossFit Games, peoples from the USA can easily subscribe to the service and watch their favorite shows online. They also keep recording of shows, that means you can watch past competitions anytime you want. If you live outside of the USA, there are ways to use their service. Scroll down to the VPN section to know more.
SlingTV is a very popular TV Streaming service in the United States that can be used to watch sport events as well. You’ll need to have a strong broadband connection to use their service seamlessly. It’s available in the USA only.
Hulu is a movie and tv show streaming website (like Netflix). Unlike Netflix, they offer some sports live streamings too! That means, if you subscribe to Hulu, you will be able to watch awesome movies and tv shows on top of the CrossFit Games 2020.
We used to know YouTube as a user-hosted video streaming website. But not anymore! Youtube now offers it’s very own YouTube TV. Which can be used to watch hundreds of sports, news and entertainment channels online. This is the best service among all. I would suggest you to go with YoutubeTV if you are looking for an all in one live tv channel streaming. CrossFit Games also has its youtube channel that can be used to watch the CrossFit Games 2020 Live. (Subscription Required)
CrossFit Games 2020 Live Stream for Free (Social Media)
Social Media Platforms are a great way to stay in the loop about everything. There are big CrossFit communities on Facebook, Instagram, Reddit, and Twitter. You can get the latest updates and even free user-hosted streaming for the upcoming CrossFit games.
The CrossFit Games has its own official Facebook page. You can follow them and watch the CrossFit games for free! With the help of the Facebook Live feature. Free streamings on Facebook are not always great. You may need to pay a little subscription fee to enjoy the event to the fullest.
Billions of people use Facebook every day. If you don’t want to miss the best CrossFit Games memes, highlights, result updates, and funny clips, I would suggest you to join the CrossFit Communities on Facebook.
On top of that, any user on Facebook can go Live using their smartphones, anytime. If you are lucky and a generous fan of the CrossFit games decides to go Live from the gallery, you can watch the event for free.
Like Facebook, Youtube has also implemented the feature of going live if you have a channel (creating a channel is free, and if you have a Gmail account, you also have a YouTube channel already. If someone decides to go live and stream the competition, you’ll be able to watch that by doing a simple search on YouTube.
By using twitter’s hashtag feature (#CrossFit, #CrossFitGames), you will be able to get the latest updates, clips, highlights, photographs, and memes about the competition. Twitter cannot be used to watch the event live.
Reddit is the most popular and trustworthy social media platform (more like a forum) in the USA. It has subreddits (communities) about everything. There is a big community of CrossFit and CrossFit Games fans there. You can go there and get the latest updates, news, and live streaming link suggestions from there.
Best VPNs to Watch the CF Games 2020 Live
VPN means Virtual Private Network. Which is legal and can be used to change your location in realtime. For instance, if you want to subscribe to SlingTV (which is available in the United States only), you can get a VPN and change your location to the USA and subscribe without any hassle. Some shows are restricted in some countries, that can be bypassed by using a click with the help of VPNs.
VPNs are not easy to select. There are pros and cons to every VPN. That’s why I am here to help.
Here is the list of my favorite VPNs to watch the CrossFit Games 2020 Live:
HMA VPN is an awesome service when it comes to location selection. You can change your location to almost any state of the USA. They got servers all around the world, that means location availability should not be an issue. But you’ll need a high-speed internet connection to stream high-quality live videos.
Private Internet Access
Private Internet Access or PIA is an affordable and fast VPN service that can be used to watch the CrossFit Games. They do not offer hundreds of locations, but if you are going to subscribe to it for the sole purpose of watching the CrossFit Games 2020 Live, go for it.
TunnelBear is a Freemium VPN service. They offer 500 MB of free usage every month. 500 MB is not enough to stream live videos of the competition, but you can signup for free and use that 500 megabytes to test out their service before subscribing for a monthly or yearly plan.
ExpressVPN is the BEST VPN among all of these. It has a clean user interface, reasonable pricing, and faster server. I would recommend you to go with this, because I use it for myself. Fasters servers means great quality streaming.
It doesn’t matter which VPN service you choose among these, make sure that you have a stable internet connection, and you are not on mobile data.
All of those VPNs were premium and paid. But there are free VPNs too! Free services are not ideal for video streaming, that’s why I won’t recommend any of them here. But if you still want to try some, feel free to do a simple “free VPN” google search. You can get free VPN apps, but most of the time they contain adware and can harm your device.
There are browser extensions/addons of free VPNs. They are safer than downloading an app on your device. And make sure to check the reviews before downloading any free browser extensions.
I hope that now you know everything about streaming the CrossFit Games 2020 Live. If you still have questions, feel free to contact us.
