You wanna fight? Of course, you don’t. You just want to watch HBO’s premiere boxing matches online or from the comfort of your own favorite streaming platform.  Well, we’ve got some information for you– some of it good, some of it bad.  Here are your options for streaming HBO Boxing online.

 

Use a Cable Alternative to Watch Boxing and HBO Online

DIRECTV does have a lot of sports networks, including Boxing and they may, in the future offer primetime fight night pay per view events. Check out their lineup and add HBO for only five bucks:

Sling is similar to DIRECTV NOW and they also have a lot of Boxing, HBO or otherwise available in their lineup with a very reasonably $25 starting point:

What about HBO Go for streaming Boxing?

Sort of.  About a week after the fights HBO will put them onto HBO Go (and presumably HBO Now) so you’ll have some access there at some point.  Not the same at all, right? Unless you’re living under a rock for a week you probably won’t be able to avoid the winner of the #MayPac fight for that long.  But, technically this is one option for streaming the match online.

Pay Per View– The Old Fashioned Way

Really the only way to watch HBO Boxing (especially the huge matches) is to pay for the fights via a normal cable provider.  You can do that online with most cable packages.  Here is DISH Network’s page for ordering, here’s instructions from Comcast.  Most set-top boxes allow you to stream right from your couch with a click of a button.  You’ll see the cost on your next bill.  They can be anywhere from 20 bucks to 100 if you’re talking about two boxing champions or a title fight.

Is HBO Boxing Available Live and Streaming on HBO Now?

So you’ve got your shiny new HBO Now account and you think you’re going to get a front row seat to the big fight right? Sorry, HBO Now does not feature live Pay-Per-View boxing matches via the app. This has always been the case since HBO Now launched in 2015. HBO Now is not your solution for streaming an HBO Boxing match live.

Other, more Nefarious streaming sites

HBO and Showtime have recently teamed up to crack down on sites like oxinghd.net and sportship.org. Both of these sites have since taken down their live streams but there are probably (absolutely) more avenues to finding these fights online without having to pay.  You’ll probably have to wade through some sketchy ads and some malware– you’ll also technically be breaking the law– but you can do those searches yourself if you’d like.

We cannot condone this option because we’re big fans of HBO and her programming.  If you love the network, Game of Thrones or Boxing as a sport you’ll pay for the fights.

We hope in the future there are better options for streaming HBO Boxing online but until then, the above are your
