There’s more to the world of sports than just basketball, football, baseball, soccer or hockey. In fact, there are thousands of wild, weird and thrilling sports out there in the world, many of which you may not have heard of. Luckily for us, that obscurity sometimes means you don’t need a cable subscription to tune in.
One of the best ways to access to these alternative sports in recent years has been through the X Games. For those of you unfamiliar with the event, the X Games is an annual sporting event dedicated to extreme sports; i.e. skateboarding, snowboarding, real ski, etc…
To help keep you plugged into the world sports outside of the mainstream, ABC has launched a weekly series called The World of X Games that features the best moments from past and present X Games events. And the best part is that you don’t need cable to catch all of the action.
Here’s a look at ABC’s X Games OTA schedule for the month of February:
February 13 – 2:00 PM ET (look for a rebroadcast soon if you missed it)
Only down side of the X Games is that it is very difficult to catch every event. Once the live events get going, there are so many competitions going on, it is nearly impossible to keep up. If only someone took the time to condense down into one amazing compilation… Oh wait, they did.
The Best of X Games Aspen 2016 is the perfect way to get into the spirit of things. Relive all the best moments, without having to feel the pang of fear that you missed something important. Who says you can’t have your cake and eat it too?
February 20 – 2:00 PM ET
Be prepared to look at skiing in a completely different light. Part skiing, part skateboarding; Real Ski is a sport where the competitors perform amazing stunts off of every day buildings, guard rails, and ramps. What’s not to love about urban free-skiing?
To keep your X Games spirit going hard, take a look at last year’s 2016 Real Ski event. It’s the perfect way to familiarize yourself with the sport that’s starting to take the world by storm.
February 27 – 2:00 PM ET
Set in the heart of Scandinavia, the 2016 Oslo X Games were billed as a different type of X Games event. What makes the Oslo Games so special is that they were the first to feature both Winter and Summer events together.
We’re talking Snowboard SuperPipe competitions and Skateboard Street courses, all together under one metaphorical roof. If you’ve ever wondered what the Olympics would look like if both seasons were combined into one, this is the closest you’ll ever get.
As previously mentioned, if you want to watch the World of X Games without cable, then all you have to do is purchase an OTA antenna. With it, you’ll be able to pick up every broadcast network in your area; including ABC. There’s no monthly subscription, and the only cost to you is the initial antenna purchase. It’s as easy as that.
