Modern technology allows you to watch live sports broadcasting right from your Apple Mac computer. Whether you have an iMac, Mac Pro, Mac Mini or MacBook you can watch many of your favorite sporting events live on your computer wherever you are as long as you have an Internet connection. Depending on the sport you prefer, you may have multiple events to choose from.

Step 1

Go to the ESPN3 website on your Mac. The ESPN3 website offers live sporting event broadcasts.

Step 2

Click the "WATCH NOW" tab located on the right side of the page. You will be directed to a new page.

Step 3

Click the "SCHEDULE" tab at the top of the page.

Step 4

Click the "LIVE" tab to view which sporting events are currently offered for live viewing. All of the sporting events offered are aired on the Eastern Time schedule.
