Football games remain as strong as always as playoff time continues, with all four of the NFL’s divisional playoff games making our top 5 this week. Slingbox users were watching football online at both the professional and college levels, as the first-ever College Football Playoff Championship Game also had an impressive showing. Plenty of people watching on their phones, tablets and laptops saw Ohio State defeat Oregon at AT&T Stadium in North Texas.
With the NFL winding down (or charging toward the climax of the Super Bowl, depending on how you look at it), there are more spots open on the list without a full slate of games every week. That means we saw an impressive amount of the other kind of football on our list, as lots of Slingbox users were watching soccer online. Making the list was the Copa del Rey (an annual tournament that spans several levels of Spain’s soccer pyramid), as well as the top Mexican and Spanish leagues. We even got some cricket in there — it will be interesting to see if the Cricket World Cup, which will be held in Australia and New Zealand during February and March, makes a big impact on our list.
We’ll be back next week with another set of top 10s.
