Being a sports fan can require some serious commitment to keeping up with the latest news about your favorite teams and leagues. Alexa keeps you in the action with sports skills for all major sports and several smaller ones. By default, Alexa can tell you about sports scores and schedules, but these skills let you dig deeper.
With sports on any of several dozen channels or websites, it can be hard to know where to find the game you want to watch. Catch Sports takes care of that for you. Once you link your Catch Sports account to Alexa, you can ask it where to watch the Carolina-Duke basketball game or what channel the Yankees-Red Sox will be on — no more channel hopping needed.
Football — or soccer, as Americans call it — is the most popular sport in the world. But if you're in the U.S., it can be hard to keep track of what's going on in the European leagues. Alexa can tell you the results from La Liga and the Premier League through this skill.
Make Alexa an assistant coach for your fantasy football team. If you use Yahoo Fantasy Football, you can link your account to get updates on your upcoming matches, injury updates for your team and more.
numberFire takes a deeper look at sports stats to offer different insight. You can get its take on football, baseball, basketball and hockey, and hear it as a part of your Flash Briefing.
Get your sports news fix in your Flash Briefing. The audio is from ESPN Radio, and it’s the same as you'd get while listening to the radio station.
Baseball fans love their stats. With the Baseball Reference skill, Alexa can tell you who leads the league in a bunch of categories, including home runs, batting average and ERA. It has historical data, too.
If you have an MLB At Bat or MLB.TV premium subscription, you can listen to your favorite Major League Baseball games through Alexa. You’ll get the home broadcast for the games. Heads up: According to user comments, there’s a bug preventing this skill from working with the Amazon Dot.
