Watch Sports With Naver's Media Player App
Are you looking for an easy way to watch sports while in Korea? Thanks to Naver, it has never been easier.
Naver Player App
Naver has recently released an app that has made watching sports while in Korea incredibly easy. Just download, the app, open it, and select what you want to watch. The menu and sports listings are in Korean, but it is incredibly easy to see what is being shown even if you don't know a lick of Korean.
What Sports Can I Watch?
That is a great question. The app broadcasts every baseball game from the KBO. It also shows many Major League Baseball games that feature a Korean player (Minnesota Twins, LA Dodgers, Baltimore Orioles, Texas Rangers, etc.). Looking for NBA games? You can find most of the playoff games and occasionally regular season games, too.
Of course it shows soccer games, both domestic games and European games. (Koreans love watching European soccer.)
They even show baduk. And e-sports. And daily news broadcasts.
How Much Is It?
It's free. Pretty silly stupid, right!?
Do I Have To Use The Korean iTunes Store?
No! You can use the US iTunes store. I don't know what other stores it is available in. I'd imagine a few others, though.
