At MigrateCable.com, we work to present quality information with editorial integrity. While this post may contain offers from our partners, our opinions are our own.Here’s how we make money.

When we select a TV package, we want to make sure it has the sports channels we want. As we’ve been researching TV providers, we’ve realized it’s not as easy as it should be to find those channels. So, we created this quick guide to make it easier to find your favorite pro sports channels.

For example, if you’re interested in NBA TV, jump to the NBA section to see packages and pricing from a variety of TV providers. We’ve separated each section by “official” professional sports channels, and don’t worry… we made sure every package includes ESPN.

NFL Network

The NFL Network is the official channel of the National Football League. It has live games, live and postgame coverage, and exclusive NFL programming, including NFL Total Access, Hard Knocks, and NFL Gameday.

Note: the NFL Network is NOT the NFL SUNDAY TICKET. The NFL SUNDAY TICKET is an “out-of-market” sports package for regular season games that is only available on DIRECTV.

NBA TV

NBA TV is the official channel of the National Basketball Association. It has live games (exhibition, regular, and playoff), live and postgame coverage, and exclusive NBA programming, such as NBA Gametime Live.

MLB Network

MLB Network is the official channel of Major League Baseball. It has live games (several a week), live and postgame coverage, and exclusive MLB programming, such as MLB Tonight and MLB Network Showcase.

NHL Network

NHL Network is the official channel of the National Hockey League. It has live games (NHL regular season, NCAA college hockey, World Junior Championship), live and postgame coverage, and exclusive NHL programming, such as NHL on the Fly, NHL Tonight, and NHL Live!.
