10 Best Sports Shows to Watch on Cable TV in 2019 If you still have a cable subscription, it's probably because of sports.

In the twentieth century, network and cable broadcasters and providers had a monopoly on televised professional sports. These days everyone from YouTube to Twitter is pushing to air more sports. Even the leagues themselves are taking control of their own distribution.

The UFC and WWE, for example, proved subscription models can be as profitable as massive pay-per-views. But cable TV does still have some great sports commentators and personalities.

If you still have a cable subscription, these are the shows you can turn on right now to stay ahead of whatever game you’re into.
