Top 10 most watched of the week (sports): As football winds down, UFC and NBA enter the list


Your 10 most watched programs of the week on Slingbox, sports edition, were as follows. Check after the list for a few quick thoughts on this week’s most watched live sports:

1. NFC Championship Game: Packers vs. Seahawks
2. AFC Championship Game: Colts vs. Patriots
3. SportsCenter
4. Liga MX soccer
5. Copa del Rey soccer
6. Cricket
7. UFC Fight Night: Conor McGregor vs. Dennis Siver
8. NBA: Cavaliers vs. Lakers
9. La Liga soccer
10. NBA: Bulls vs. Cavaliers

With the NFL postseason driving toward its conclusion and college football over for the year, we’re starting to see some real diversity of sports on this list. Of course we know massive number of Slingbox users were watching the NFL playoffs on their laptops, tablets and phones, as the two conference championship games came in at 1-2 as expected. The situation farther down the list was more varied than we’ve seen in a while, though.

Like last week, we also got three separate entries for soccer: Liga MX, La Liga, and Copa de Rey, which is a tournament encompassing several tiers of the Spanish soccer pyramid. It was also the first time in a long time that we saw UFC on the list. Plenty of Slingbox users were watching UFC online as they saw Conor McGregor defeat Dennis Siver by TKO in two rounds in Boston. We also saw two NBA games on the list, which proved that while the Cleveland Cavaliers’ season may have been rocky thus far, the ongoing saga of LeBron, Love and Irving is certainly holding Slingbox viewers’ interest.

We’ll be back next week with another set of top 10s.
