ScreenCloud Sports Live Scores App Guide

The ScreenCloud Sports Live Scores app allows you to share all of the latest sports scores from your favorite teams, to your digital signage screens. From NBA scores, to football and NHL, the Sports Live Scores app is the easiest way to get the latest information and display it for your audience to see. This is perfect for bars, restaurants and cafés where your customers may want to linger over the scores and a drink or two.

With the ScreenCloud Sports Live Scores app you can:

  • Choose scores and fixtures from a variety of different sports
  • Get live information on the latest scores, as they happen
  • Use multiple versions to show different teams

Please note the Sports Live Scores app is only currently supported in landscape.

Here’s how it works:

1. Select and install ScreenCloud’s Sports Live Scores app

1.1. Get started by clicking here and selecting “Get App”. This will prompt you to either log into your existing ScreenCloud account, or sign up for our 14-day free trial in order to use the Sports Live Scores app and other available apps within our App Store.

1.2. Once you’ve logged in, you can select “Add this app” from the top right-hand corner.

2. Choose your settings

From the dropdown, choose which sport you want to display. The current options include:

  • NHL (National Hockey League) scores
  • NFL (National Football League) scores
  • NBA (National Basketball Association) scores
  • MLB (Major League Baseball) scores
  • CBB (National Collegiate Athletic Association Basketball) scores
  • CFB (National Collegiate Athletic Association Football) scores

Next, choose which language to display your scores in from the Language dropdown. We currently support English, Spanish, German, French and Dutch languages.

Once you have chosen a sport and your language, you can then set the duration you’d like the scores and fixtures to show for.

3. Preview your results

Next, you can review what your live scores look like before they get added to a playlist.

Click “Preview App” and a small pop-up will show the scores as they will look on your digital screen.  

If the sport you have chosen is out of season, you will see the “Out of Season” message as shown below. At this point, you may want to go back and choose another sport to show.

4. Add Sports Live Scores app to a playlist

Once you’re happy with your scores you can add them to a playlist.

Select “Add App” and choose a name (for example, “Sports Live Scores - Premiership”).

Next, go to “Playlists” and drag and drop the app from the selection bar on the right-hand side to the playlist of your choosing.

To change how long you want to show the Sports Live Scores for, you can change the time duration in your playlist (currently set as 2.00 for two minutes).

Frequently asked questions:

What is the time period for scores to pull into the app?

This depends on the schedule of the season or series you are following. The app will normally pull in any scores from games yesterday (i.e. the most recent available day of scores), the current day (i.e. display any games completed or upcoming later in the day), and two from tomorrow (i.e. will display upcoming games). For example, if your series only plays games on Thursdays and Sundays, the app will pull score or upcoming game data according to their schedule.

How often do the scores refresh?

Sports Live Scores app looks for new NFL scores every four minutes and NBA and MLB scores every two minutes.

Can I get other scores to show on my screen?

Sports Live Scores only currently shows scores from NHL, NFL, NBA, MLB, CBB, and CFB. However, if there is a sport you wish you could show please let our team know using the “Send Feedback” button.

Can I show the scores in portrait?

No, Sports Live Scores app only currently supports landscape viewing.
