Is Sports TV 8 Legal?

This app does not host any content and is essentially just a search engine. It is, therefore, 100% legal to install and use. However, most links scraped from databases and websites are unlikely to hold the proper licencing for broadcasting live streams. In reality, this means you will be unlawfully streaming unlicensed content. Doing so could get you into legal trouble. Accordingly, you may prefer to use this app with a VPN.

Is ACE Stream Media Safe?

ACE Stream is a peer-to-peer multimedia streaming protocol built using BitTorrent technology. This technology is acknowledged as the most effective protocol for transferring/delivering data. Furthermore, ACE Stream is safe because the player allows you to play online video content on websites containing links to torrent files without actually downloading the file.

Wrapping Up

Sports TV 8 is a very good app for streaming live free sports in high quality. Moreover, its simple interface makes it easy to use without any added fuss.

The downsides, however, are:

  • If you only speak English, many live streams are in Spanish only.
  • Number of ads.
  • ACE Stream Media cannot turn off personalised ads on Firestick. If this is an issue, you could try Sports Fire, OceanStreamz, or UK Turks instead.
